New tracks for the port railway

WILHELMSHAVEN. Some 15 cargo trains with up to 52 wagons and a total load of more than 2,000 tonnes use the railway of NPorts in Rüstersieler Groden every week. The track sections 1 to 3 were therefore renewed by the port operator between April and the end of July. The renovation included replacing the wooden sleepers with safe and long-lasting concrete ones, the laying of new tracks and the renewal of the ballast bed over the entirety of the 2.3-kilometre section. Several track switches were also replaced.
