Progress on Tram Zürich West
filed on: 28.07.2005 (28th Jul 2005)
63 objections have been registered concerning Tram Zürich West (the proposed new tram line from Escher-Wyss-Platz to Bhf. Altstetten). 39 of these are connected to land acquisition, the others to car parking, environmental and connected issues (running under the Hardbrücke viaduct, the new tram will displace the car park area that currently uses this site).
VBZ is already negotiating with many of these objectors and is confident that satisfactory solutions can be agreed upon soon. The scheduled opening date of 2009 is not threatened. Planning permission for the 300 million Frank project is expected next Summer (the costs include remodelling of Pfingstweidstrasse, an important road thoroughfare along which trams will run).
