Vermuntbahn and "Europatreppe 4000"
Summer 2014 to 2018
The Vermuntbahn cableway service will be closed to the public during the 2016, 2017 and, quite probably, 2018 summer seasons.
This is due to work on building the Obervermuntwerk II power station, which will have an output of 360 MW, in the Vermunt / Silvretta area. The work started in May
2014 and is expected to last until 2018. Electrical power shall be transferred under avalanche-safe conditions along a 220 kV cable system (which has yet to be
installed) from the transformer cavern in Vermunt to the substation at Kopswerk I in Partenen.
During the summer months in 2016, 2017 and, we expect, in 2018, the Vermuntbahn shall be used solely for construction site and related transportation purposes, so it
will not be available for passenger use. Equally, the Europa Stairway 4000 shall be closed during the months when the building work takes place.
The normal Vermuntbahn service shall remain fully available in the coming winter seasons.
