Pöyry has been awarded a contract by the Austrian Federal Railways Company "ÖBB-Infrastruktur AG" to perform the site supervision services for the railway line upgrade project "Lambach-Breitenschützing". The value of Pöyry's services is about EUR 1.3 million.

This will include several bridges and underpasses as well as new construction of Neukirchen station. Partly retreating of the existing western railway track and accompanying ecological measures are also part of the works.
