Having investigated the situation, DB Netz expects work on securing the slope and clearing the fallen rocks to take at least until the end of the month.

Trains continue to be diverted mainly along the left bank of the Rhine. Up to now there have been hardly any delays. We are in constant contact with the train operating companies we use, and we check each individual departure regarding the delays to be expected.

We ask for your understanding in the case of any delays, and will keep you informed of further developments.
