The project involves around 125 route-km most of which is double track while the 25km Lindau - Friedrichshafen section is single track.

The work is likely to involve lengthy line closures as is currently happening on sections of the Munich - Lindau main line which is also being electrified. The first closure will take place from September 10 to December 21 next year between Ulm and Laupheim.

The project is due to be completed in 2021.
