It is not got transport from road to Rail, the infrastructure was broken saved: The Federal court gives the Federal government the blame for many problems on the railway.
It was a coincidence, asserts the Federal court of auditors President Kay Scheller that his authority just released your report. At a time, in the Deutsche Bahn corners have to anyway a lot of criticism.
on the occasion of the report of the Federal court, the railway reform, which came 25 years ago in power and from the point of view of the controller is failed. "If we pull out today, the balance sheet, we see that there is traffic from the road, on the rails. And the burden on the Federal budget are not become less, but on the contrary much more."Federal government has contributed greatly to the plight
the biggest benefit is now the recipient of the Federal government, the debt is 20 billion euros, although the Federal government has even dispensed with the promised dividends. The share of rail in the German passenger transport is only slightly increased, the share of the freight traffic has shrunk to almost 18 percent.
The criticism of the Federal court of auditors is not only directed to the railway, but especially the Federal government.
However, the criticism of auditors, not alone to the railway and its leadership, but, above all, to the Federal government, including the Ministry of transport. By own failures of the Federal government have contributed significantly to the misery. And although Development and maintenance of the rail network are even enshrined in the basic law, Scheller says:
"The order is defined in the basic law is clear. The constitutional order is, so to speak. The Federal government has idly watched in the last ten, fifteen years ago, as the train came in a poor development, and must take care of it, that it will be better."
The Confederation as sole owners still have no concept what they would like to have for a car and how much he criticizes the Federal court of auditors. The Federal government have left it to the railway Board almost completely, to decide on the structure and entrepreneurial orientation. The result is that the railway has concentrated heavily on its foreign business.No other train foreign shops
Now it is in about 140 countries, and generates 43 percent of its sales. The railway customer's home in Germany to bring the nothing, and the court of auditors President Scheller: "If profits are generated, remain abroad, are reinvested there, but the domestic business. The international business also ties up management capacities. The Federal government must ask themselves whether they can afford to do so. The capacity of the railway to the solution of the problems is here used in domestic urgent."
The Federal court of audit does not recommend the railway to invest more in track foreign transactions.
Clear recommendation of the German Federal court of auditors: The train will separate from the British transport company Arriva PLC, and from the logistics provider Schenker, and not in the web foreign businesses to invest. By the sales, the railroad could take billions.- Clear goals and rules for the Bahn AG
in addition, the Federal government was the sole owner demanded. He should put the Bahn AG, clear goals and rules, and to monitor and swiftly, Scheller says: "It is the highest railway. It is important that a strategy is found that can work in the medium and long term. Because the Fast little going on here."
the DB AG in the next few years, with new financial problems. She wants to modernize the fleet of trains and bottlenecks in personnel and seemed to degrade the network. However, according to the Federal court of auditors, will be sufficient profits from the operating business.
