Danube Crossing at Aggsbach: Feasibility

Potential route of a cableway between Aggsbach-Dorf and Aggsbach-Markt © Conos.at

One topic that has preoccupied the region for many years is the lack of a crossing over the Danube between Melk and Spitz near the towns of Aggsbach-Markt and Aggsbach-Dorf. After several unsuccessful attempts to set up a conventional bicycle ferry between them, the two towns are now pursuing an unconventional approach: in the future, they could be connected by a cableway across the Danube.

The results of the feasibility study will be used to decide whether the project will be pursued further or not. If it is, the results will serve as the basis for the subsequent financing negotiations.
