After an incident in May 2017, in which the suspension railway collided with a supporting structure, the maximum speed of the suspension railway was limited to 40 km/h. Now, after lengthy preparations, it has been possible to obtain permission from the Technical Supervisory Authority Düsseldorf (TAB) and to allow the suspension railway to run at 60 km/h again in sections. The speed limit of 40 km/h remains in place on large sections of the route to prevent further contact with the scaffolding.
This change has a direct impact on the transport service for passengers. Thus, a frequency of around 3:30 minutes will probably be possible from the Easter holidays in 2023. Further information can be found here.
