Track layout at Bhf. Enge to expand
filed on: 15.02.2005 (15th Feb 2005)
A major tram track renewal and remodelling programme is starting at Bahnhof Enge. The work will stretch over almost two years. It includes the laying of a connecting spur allowing direct workings between Wollishofen and Albisgüetli. Besides being useful for depot runs, such a track will enable the possible extension of tram route 5 to the future Sihl City shopping centre. This curve is remarkable as it is not only very tight but also in a gradient.
The plans also see a total transformation of Tessinerplatz, the square outside Bhf. Enge. The single loop track will be replaced by a double loop. Planting of trees will transform this area into an attractive urban setting.
