This measure means that all platforms will be barrier-free (it’s currently still necessary to ‘climb up‘ into the carriages). We’ll also be redesigning all the carriages by removing the steps to ensure that the trains and carriages will be able to pass the stops smoothly.
A great project against a unique backdrop! We’re looking forward to seeing the final result.
With around 31 square kilometres, Borkum is the largest of the seven inhabited East Frisian Islands and consequently offers plenty of scope for discovery. Besides the impressive dune landscapes and the Wadden Sea UNESCO World Heritage Site, Borkum is also home to picturesque villages, cosy restaurants and cafés as well as such interesting sights as the Old Lighthouse and the Museum of Local History.
