Basis for the strenghtening of Danube navigation is a reliable waterway. The clearance of nautical bottlenecks whilst improving the ecological status in the free flowing sections is of high priority. The integrative planning of initiatives allows for environment and navigation to profit simultaneously. Based on the knowledge gained in the course of the pilot projects Witzelsdorf, Bad Deutsch-Altenburg, etc. further measures will be implemented in the free flowing sections of the Austrian Danube. This also contributes to the compliance with national and international guidelines (AGN, targets for the Trans-European transport network, EU Water Framework Directive, etc.).
Scientific support of the implementation activities by the Christian Doppler laboratory „IM Fluss“ (Advanced methods in river monitoring, modelling and engineering). Further information: http://www.cdlabor-imfluss.boku.ac.at/index.php/en.html.
The Pilot Projects Bad Deutsch-Altenburg and Witzelsdorf were part of the pilot project phase of the ‘Integrated River Project on the Danube East of Vienna’ (FGP). Both were implemented in structural terms and are already concluded; the post-monitoring will still take several years.
