Aid in connection with the relocation and expansion of Fangschleuse station in view of the Tesla electric-car manufacturer moving in to the district of Grünheide (Mark)

Question for written answer  E-004171/2021
to the Commission
Rule 138
Helmut Scholz (The Left)

The Brandenburg State Government is aiming to relocate and expand Fangschleuse station in the light of the establishment of the Tesla electric-car manufacturer in the district of Grünheide (Mark). The station is on the Berlin–Frankfurt/Oder line (section No 6153), which is part of the TEN-T core network for goods and passenger transport. The planned measures include relocating the station around two kilometres to the west (together with the extension involving longer platform edges, modern platform equipment, a station forecourt with car and bicycle parking facilities and a subway for pedestrians and cyclists), lengthening the existing passing loop and construction of a pre-buffering facility to handle the goods and passenger traffic load at the interface between the main line and the Tesla company’s own railway installations. The Brandenburg State Government estimates the cost of the project as at least EUR 50 million. A financial contribution by the Tesla company is not envisaged, although the State Government’s view is that there would be no need for these plans to be enacted if the company were not moving in to the area.

Was this project notified as aid under Article 108(3) TFEU (or with another legal basis), or did preparatory discussions take place between the Commission and stakeholders in the project from Germany? If so, on exactly which dates did these take place, and what was the content in each case?
