The Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) announced on 22nd July 2021 that the reconstruction of the railway infrastructure after the extreme flooding in North Rhine-Westphalia, Rhineland-Palatinate and other parts of Germany will cost around EUR 1.3 billion. The reconstruction of 60 stations and railway yards will cost EUR 480 million, the construction of 600 km of track and other work on the network about EUR 780 million. The Eifel line (Cologne - Trier) is particularly affected, and there are restrictions on the lines between Düsseldorf, Hagen, Dortmund, Cologne, Aachen, Hürth, Bonn and Sinzig. Most of the lines can be rebuilt by the end of 2021, but it will take two to three years for the heavily damaged lines.
