Cargotram will no longer serve Laubegg
filed on: 18.02.2007 (18th Feb 2007)
The extension of route 5 to Laubegg, which will take effect on 22nd March, means Cargotram can no longer use the Laubegg turning circle. In order to be able to continue to serve this neighbourhood. ERZ will provide a lorry to pick up waste from an adjoining site. The changeover affects two monthly services (Cargotram and E-tram).

Website comment: It has always been a strength of Cargotram that the service uses infrastructure (in terms of both vehicles and the tracks where loading occurs) that already existed but did not see intensive use. Only this low-cost structure permitted the service to start in the first place and to expand to such success. When the expansion of passenger services re-claims such infrastructure, this can only be welcomed. I hope however, that Cargotram services will continue to be succesful and even expand at other locations.
