More frequent, faster and more direct: this is how trains are to travel from Bernburg to Halle and Magdeburg in the future. This will make Bernburg even more attractive as a place to live, work and study.
Calbe, Nienburg and the university in Strenzfeld will also benefit from the new frequency of the Salzlandbahn.
- More often: Trains to Halle and Magdeburg are to run every hour in the future - at least during the week. That's twice as often as today and makes rail travel even more flexible.
- Faster: The expansion of the lines will significantly shorten travel times. The journey from Bernburg to Magdeburg will be around 10 minutes faster in future (journey time approx. 45 minutes).
- More direct: The new direct connections from Bernburg to Halle and Magdeburg make for relaxed travel. The sometimes necessary changes in Güsten or Calbe (Saale) Ost are no longer necessary.
Saxony-Anhalt is making the state's Bahn-Bus-Landesnetz fit for the future. Over the next few years, the range of routes and journeys is to be expanded step by step - the goal is a statewide hourly service.
Many smaller towns and medium-sized centers will then be better accessible. Around the major cities, the S-Bahn systems and the PlusBus network are to be expanded. This is a long-term task that will take a lot of time and energy. But it will be worth it for the country, its citizens and the climate.
