Trams for Vorarlberg
filed on: 20.12.2006 (20th Dec 2006)
An independent study by the construction businessman, Hubert Rhomberg, has come out in favour of the bringing back trams to the Vorarlberg region. The idea was first suggested by the local Green Party but not investigated further. Rhomberg's plans see a ring line Bregenz - Lauterach - Schwarzach - Dornbirn - Lustenau - Höchst - Fußach - Hard - Bregenz. The project could be realised in phases.
There was a tram connecting Dornbirn and Lustenau from 1902 to 1938.
Vorarlberg is the Austrian province directly bordering Switzerland at Sankt Gallen.
