Success through



We need an intelligent, functioning and efficient transport system of the 21st century to be successful and to be able to withstand international competition. We know exactly what we need in terms of infrastructure, when, where and in what availability and quality, in order to be able to secure the future of the German population. Only if we can hold our own in international competition can projects such as the mobility revolution and digitisation be financed at all and implemented by social consensus. A country's international competitiveness and economic prosperity are strongly dependent on a good and competitive, highly available infrastructure. This was already the case in ancient Rome and has not changed since. In order to keep pace with the rapid changes in the area of transport and mobility, it is also necessary to maintain a suitable infrastructure. It is therefore essential, in particular, to make the planning and approval procedures for infrastructure projects effective and quick to implement and to involve the private sector more.


The digital infrastructure remains the most important framework condition for successful innovations, also in the transport sector. As mobility services become increasingly interconnected, the volume of data to be transmitted will continue to rise, placing new demands on data networks. Therefore, existing coverage gaps in mobile communications must be closed quickly and the nationwide expansion of gas fibre must be ensured.

In addition, the expansion of 5G and 6-G transmission masts along the transport infrastructure will gain in importance. A high-performance 5G network is considered an important basis for connected and, in particular, autonomous driving to enable communication and data exchange between the vehicle and the infrastructure. In this way, accidents can also be reduced and traffic flow improved.
