The Werndorf Freight Terminal project: The facts
Who is GWP and what does it do?
Güterterminal Werndorf Projekt GmbH (GWP) has been contracted to build and finance the North Industrial Siding (Anschlussbahn Nord). It is owned 50% by the Provincial Government of Styria and 50% by Cargo Center Graz (CCG). The Steiermärkische Landesbahnen operate the terminal.
Preparation and subsequent delivery of the Koralm Railway project has given significant momentum to the development of the Styrian rail infrastructure. Just before the beginning of the new millennium, planning of the Koralm Railway was in full swing.
As a logical consequence of this development and in order to effectively link major transport routes and thus markets to Styria as a business location, construction of the Werndorf terminal also began in 1999.
