New location for port railway
The area around the Swiss Rhine ports in Basel is to be restructured to provide space for urban development. To this end, the port railway at the Klybeckquai and Westquai will be relocated to the central port area in Kleinhüningen. The new facility is expected to offer a comparable level of capacity.
The relocation requires free space, which is to be provided by various measures. First of all, the customs metering station must be moved to a new site, for which a planning application will be submitted in spring 2023. Basel’s cantonal parliament will vote on the project and the credit for further project planning in Q2/2023. (ben)
