Suppression of a railway tunnel in Rumelange: what is the environmental impact?

In Rumelange, the CFL wants to destroy a historic railway tunnel, i.e. remove the ground above the tunnel, to modernize the track. DP MPs Gusty Graas and Max Hahn asked what environmental impact these works had.

« Selon un article de presse récent, les CFL prévoiraient dans le cadre des travaux de suppression des passages à niveau PN106 et PN106a à Rumelange de supprimer également le tunnel sur la ligne Rumelange – Langengrund.

Vu que beaucoup d’arbres devraient être enlevés, la suppression de ce tunnel aura un impact considérable sur l’environnement.  

Dans ce contexte, nous aimerions poser les questions suivantes à Monsieur le Ministre de la Mobilité et des Travaux publics :

  • Quelles sont les raisons pour supprimer le tunnel susmentionné ? Monsieur le Ministre peut-il fournir des précisions quant aux travaux prévus dans ce cadre ?
  • Quel serait l’impact environnemental de ces travaux ? Quelles mesures compensatoires devraient être effectuées ? »
