To the south it is bounded in its full length by the marshalling yard north, as well as east of the federal road 304, which is called there Dachauer road.
For the construction of the adjoining marshalling yard and the tracks, large quantities of gravel were needed in the 1990s. These could be obtained on site in the open pit from the upcoming post glacial deposits of the Dachau Moss.
