Connecting the road and rail tunnels

The Arlberg road tunnel, which has been in operation since 1978, was already connected to the parallel Arlberg railway tunnel by seven crosscuts before the STSG (Road Tunnel Safety Act) came into force between 2004 and 2007. During this phase, collecting rooms for up to 800 people were created between the two tunnels. Ultimately, the road and rail tunnels were linked with one another in terms of safety.
