We create optimal foundations for a sustainable planning on the Danube

To be able to optimally advance the planning of the river renaturation project “Haslau-Regelsbrunn” on the Lower Austrian Danube, exploratory surveys were carried out on the Danube’s embankment protection.

The aim was to gather information on the extent and composition of the massive stone structures in the Donau-Auen National Park. Some of these structures have been separating the Danube’s main river from its tributaries for over 150 years and are partly covered by several metres of fine sand that the Danube has deposited here.

Within the project, a dynamically flowing floodplain landscape shall be restored and the Danube shall be freed from its tight corset a little. The findings of the exploratory surveys will help us to develop a sustainable solution and to estimate the expected construction costs.
