Stadtbahn Glattal: first tracks laid
filed on: 22.06.2005 (22nd Jun 2005)
The first track of Stadtbahn Glattal (Glattalbahn) was laid last night. In a posession lasting from 21.15 to 06.30, a turnout that will connect the new line to the existing system was installed at Messe/Hallenstadion. Further work will be carried out in the coming nights. Operations will be restored to normal by the weekend. Tracks will be installed as far as the Hagenholzstrasse junction by the end of the year.
Stadtbahn Glattal is a project to bring trams to the area to the North of Zürich. The first phase, which is now under construction, will see tram route 11 extended from Messe/Hallendsadion to Auzelg using 2.7km of new track and serving five new stops. This section will open in late 2006. Further phases will see lines to the airport and Stettbach.
