Dear Business Partners,
Yesterday 10.07.2022 in the early morning hours, there was a rail accident involving freight trains of other carriers on the main railway corridor Budapest – Komarom between Biatorbagy and Herceghalom stations. The line is currently closed and the expected start of operation is currently unknown. Due to the closure of the corridor, METRANS shipments from or to METRANS Budapest Csepel Terminal will unfortunately be delayed. The restriction also applies to trains transiting with shipments through Budapest. We have operationally diverted METRANS trains to a diversion route that requires the use of independent traction locomotives. However, this diversion line has a reduced capacity, so you have to expect significant train delays on this corridor.
Colleagues from customer services will inform you about the specific impacts on your shipments.
