Our Studies

The waypoint: results of the investigations

The period 2015-2018 is the research phase. On this page the results of all sub-studies shall be published. These results provide insight into the opportunities provided by the Wunderline. This includes listing the necessary measures, which will provide more comfort and quality as well as less travelling time and also which measures will facilitate freight transport. The studies shall be carried out in several stages. As soon as a particular sub-study is completed, the results will be published below.

Study results

2011-2015
During the preparatory phase, the Swiss railway consultancy firm SMA studied 48 alternative timetables in order to achieve a faster and direct railway connection between the cities of Groningen and Bremen. In consultation with German and Dutch authorities and rail partners, DBNetz, ProRail, Niedersachsen, Bremen and the LNVG, these alternatives have been narrowed down to four promising alternative options.
