Basel: Weil extension comes a step nearer
filed on: 20.09.2007 (20th Sep 2007)
The transport ministry of Baden-Württemberg (in whose juristriction Weil am Rhein lies) has, after a prolonged period of ambiguity, finally said it will contribute to the Basel — Weil cross-border tram project. Furthermore, if the extension of route 3 to St Louis does not come to fruition (as is becoming increasingly likely), it will be possible to divert the funds to the Weil extension. This makes the total costs of 104.3 million Franks (of which 46.4 million for the German section, part of which is being covered by Basel) financeable. It is planned to open the line in 2012.
