Flowing traffic on water, land, rails and in the air
Even though Rhein-Kreis Neuss is spacious, the whole region – with the Rhine, the Ruhr and the German-Dutch-Belgium triangle – is one of the most densely populated areas in Europe. An efficient and differentiated transport system is therefore all the more important.
The Rhine has been one of the most important transport routes between the Alps and the North Sea since time immemorial. It is still important for cargo shipping, and its popularity as a tourist route is unbroken.
Neuss port, in economic association with the port of the state capital Düsseldorf, is one of Germany’s largest inland ports and is the southernmost port accessible to coastal motor vessels on the Rhine. Container transhipment is growing in importance. So-called combined transport has extraordinarily good conditions here, as the port has its own railway and a motorway connection.
Roundabout to all four corners of the earth
Numerous motorways, railway lines and Rhine bridges ensure that traffic flows. All the county’s eight cities and municipalities can be reached by rail and have a connection with one of the five motorways. In Rhein-Kreis Neuss the way really is the goal. The excellent infrastructure is its most important locational advantage for highly successful economic development.
It is not only the links within Rhein-Kreis Neuss which are important for the traffic flow, but also the connections with the outside.
Industry and tourism profit from the air traffic routes: The international airports in Düsseldorf and Cologne virtually lie “on the doorstep”. The trade fairs in Düsseldorf and Cologne can also be reached quickly. The Ruhr and Netherlands are only a short trip away.
There is also a well-developed infrastructure for cyclists and pedestrians, ramblers, joggers, skaters, riders and everyone who likes to keep moving.
