BASIC PROJECT DATA
Project ID: PA1A163
NEED AND ADDED VALUE FOR THE DANUBE REGION STRATEGY
The weir and locks of Kachlet were built between 1922 and 1927. The designed life span of 80 years is already exceeded and major rehabilitation of both lock chambers as well as the weir complex is necessary. The unimpaired functioning of the locks is crucial for the processing of inland navigation.
OBJECTIVE(S) OF THE PROJECT
The project aims to improve the reliability and safety of the navigation lock infrastructure, eliminating the occurrence of long closures and preventing malfunctions.
Since malfunctioning lock facilities create infrastructural bottlenecks for the entire waterway corridor, the rehabilitation project had region-wide benefits, ensuring the safety and operability of the lock.
