City of Vienna, Municipal Department 18  (project partner 13)

With the expansion of the European Union Vienna has taken on an important role. It is becoming a major European transport hub in the next years.
By constructing a new main station as a through station, trains will arrive in the capital from all directions to destinations in all directions for the first time. By creating a high-performance north-south and east-west connection, the station will become the most important hub for regional, national, and international transport and a central junction in the trans-European rail network. 
The Municipal Department 18 is involved in all those activities on a strategic level of urban and transport planning. It is responsible for the Vienna’s Urban Development Plan and the Transport Master Plan. The role in the RAILHUC project will mainly focus on the experience exchange on the Vienna hub development.

Vienna Hub

Vienna is the capital and largest city of Austria and one of the nine states of Austria. With a population of about 1.7 million (2.4 million within the metropolitan area) it is by far the largest city in Austria, as well as its cultural, economic, and political center. 
The city lies in the east of Austria and is close to the borders of the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Hungary. These regions work together in the European Centrope region (www.centrope.com). Along with nearby Bratislava, Vienna forms a metropolitan region with 3 million inhabitants. Vienna is located on TEN 17, TEN 22, and TEN 23 corridors.
