Berlin-Reinickendorf : Heather has to go in five years

For 30 years, rail fans on the track dreams, for the past 20 years, the Public discussion – and now it's time to go on once very quickly. As of the end of 2023 to roll again the trains on the trunk route of the Heath railway from Wilhelmsruh to the North-East. On Thursday, the States of Berlin and Brandenburg, the transport Association VBB and the railway undertakings NEB signed a corresponding contract. A good 20 million euros are estimated for the approximately 14-Kilometer-long stretch of beautiful forest to Berlin-Wilhelmsruh – in comparison with other projects, such as the half a billion for the A100 a little something. From 2028/2030 the trains to the ICE to rollers fountain-train station healthy.

Five years for the reactivation of a rail line is an ambitious goal. Supposedly there is to be no more obstacles, said NEB-chief Detlef Bröcker. "We all want the route," said transport Senator Regine Günther, and Brandenburg's Minister for Infrastructure, Kathrin Schneider, and the signing of the Treaty. This route in the North-East is the most advanced genetic project of the 2018 agreement for the "Expansion of the Metropolitan region", which operates under the name of "i2030". It is also to be expanded Rail routes to Nauen, Velten and Potsdam.

The Heather train so quickly, because the track of the Deutsche Bahn, but the private companies Barnim railway (NEB) is one – otherwise it would be placed probably in the last decades, still and entwidmet. Per week one to two freight trains to Stadler rollers, and also special trips with steam locomotive to Wilhelmsruher Damm. A reactivation for passenger transport is legally much easier than a track new construction. According to the data of the VBB two new stops on the Berlin area, "Wilhelmsruher Damm" (for the märkisches Viertel) and "Pankow Park" (Gewerbegebiet).

Not only a lot of Brandenburg, but also some tens thousand inhabitants of the märkischer district would then finally have a rail connection. It is still uncertain whether there will be an hour or even a half hour on the trunk route. The previous connection of the Heather track on beautiful Linde and Karow is to be retained. The route is to be driven with a modern engine vehicles with a speed of 80, electrification is not planned. Currently, the freight trains travel at 30 km / h, before each railway crossing is slowed down to walking speed.

These Transitions and breakpoints, barrier-free developed need to be secured. Bröcker expects to 2500 passengers per day, currently 4000 to rise in his features. It gets really interesting, however, when the trains run well up healthy. It requires a minimum of five additional years, for a reason: it is Still unclear how and to what Tempo the Northern runway is being expanded.

The main route of the Heather train lost with the building of the Berlin wall in 1961, its function, the terminal station Wilhelmsruh was right on the border. At the end of the 60s was built in sight of this wall and the märkisches Viertel, the first residents had been promised a rail connection. The Gropius city got the U7, the U8 never reached the "MV". In 1994, the edge of the tower block was achieved with the S-Bahn station Wittenau-district, but then that was it. In 2017, the Senate has agreed to consider again the financing – in principle, the green Senate, however, when the red-red that cheaper transport means such as tram priority.

And when the tram departs from 2023 the residents of MV, directly in the city – in half an hour you are at the lake for a while.
