Public transport services in the Sülze region are now much more convenient

Public transport services in the Sülze region are now much more convenient

After almost two years of construction, the station area in Dodendorf (Börde district) was opened today as a modern interface. "This significantly increases the attractiveness of our public transportation for travelers. It is now simply more convenient to change to the train or bus," said Dr. Lydia Hüskens, Minister for Infrastructure and Digital Affairs of Saxony-Anhalt, at the inauguration.

"Mobility means freedom. Freedom also includes a real choice of means of transportation. We want the people of Saxony-Anhalt to be able to freely choose all forms of mobility. This requires a well-developed infrastructure: cycle paths, roads and, of course, attractive public transport. We are working on this. Every day," says Lydia Hüskens. The investment here in Dodendorf is a living example.

According to the minister, the core of the project are the new P+R parking lots, one of which is handicapped accessible. In addition, there is a new barrier-free bus stop at the intersection of the two modes of transportation. The municipality's construction project was funded by the state with almost 790,000 euros. In total, almost one million euros have been invested. "In fact, Dodendorf is the 120th project that we have been able to carry out within the framework of the interface program," the Minister pointed out. The money has been well invested, especially in view of the development of the high-tech park in the immediate vicinity.

Construction began in 2022 with the demolition of the former station building and the freight shed. In addition to the barrier-free bus stop with a tactile guidance system for the blind, a bus loop and a covered bicycle  shelter for ten bikes were built.

About 75 passengers get on and off the train at the Dodendorf stop every day, traveling to and from Magdeburg and Oschersleben.

The station areas in Langenweddingen and Osterweddingen in the Sülzetal region have already been modernized. Both stations received new outdoor platforms, barrier-free bus stops, and bus turning loops. Cyclists can also use the covered shelters. Sufficient P+R spaces are available for motorists.

In Langendweddingen, the state contributed about 440,000 euros to the total cost of about 560,000 euros. In Osterweddingen, the total cost was almost 850,000 euros, of which the state contributed almost 660,000 euros from the interface program.
