Tram Zürich West in 2010

filed on: 20.01.2006 (20th Jan 2006)

According to Tages Anzeiger of 16th January, delays in the planning of Tram Zürich West have caused the projected opening date to be changed to December 2010.

Two years ago, an inauguration was still envisaged prior to the 2008 European Cup football. The decision to host Zürich's contribution in Letzigrund rather than Hardturm has reduced the urgency of this link. The city does, however, remain firmly committed to its construction. The 3km tram line from Escher-Wyss-Platz to Bhf. Altstetten will cost 150MCHF (including 90MCHF from the cantonal transport fund and 47MCHF from the city).
