Master plan for extending Burghausen as an industrial location

Overview of current measures and project stages of the master plan: The roundabout at the northern entry to the town, completed at the end of 2010, now facilitates a smooth flow of traffic from and to the industrial estates. The northern industrial estate offers space for a container terminal, services park and reserve space for expansion. The gas combined cycle power plant project should serve to ensure the provision of energy to the industrial site from around 2015. (Photo: Wacker Chemie AG)

In the past four years, the industrial enterprises Wacker Chemie AG, OMV Deutschland GmbH and Borealis Polymere GmbH have invested some €3 billion in production plants in Burghausen. Due to the expansion of industry and the settlement of service providers linked to this, the present space capacities have been almost exhausted. The Town Council therefore needs to develop growth and expansion sites for the future. These are currently being focused on the northern industrial estate.

The master plan drawn up by Burghausen Town Council in collaboration with WiföG serves as the basis for further investment decisions regarding industrial plants and infrastructure.

Summary of the key measures and objectives of the master plan:

  • Container terminal and service park: Purchase of land for the construction of a public terminal for combined transport (container terminal) in order to cope with the logistic challenges posed by the growth location of Burghausen as well as a new industrial park site for service companies to be linked to this.
  • Industrial expansion of Haiming: Land purchases and financial support of the development costs and support of the construction method for the industrial expansion of the municipal territory of Haiming on the outskirts of Burghausen.
  • Expansion of transport infrastructure: Capacity bottlenecks in goods traffic and the impact on residential traffic in Burghausen and the surrounding towns and villages are to be removed or reduced to a tolerable measure through public investment in the regional and local transport infrastructure in close coordination with the Town Council and WiföG.
