Route 5 to Sihlcity coming soon?
filed on: 19.01.2007 (19th Jan 2007)
It is reported on Nahverkehrsforum.ch.vu that route 5 may be extended to Sihlcity before 2008! Sihlcity is a new shopping center that is taking shape on the site of the former Sihl paper factory. The area is already served by route 13, but it is considered an additional tram route is required to serve the site. The prerequisite for the extension was created with the recent rebuilding of Tessinerplatz (at Bhf. Enge), as part of which a direct track connection was created between the two lines. When, and indeed whether this connection would actually be used has however remained a subject of speculation. From Bhf. Enge, route 5 will share tracks with route 13 and turn either at the Albisgütli terminus or at the intermediate loop at Laubegg.
