Stadtbahn Glattal progress
filed on: 24.09.2007 (24th Sep 2007)
A visit to Stadtbahn Glattal today revealed significant progress. The diversion of Thurgauerstr alongside Glattpark is now complete so that work is now progressing on the alignment of the Stadtbahn proper. The subway entrance at Lindbergh is also rapidly taking shape. Significant lengths of track are in position around Bahnhof Glattbrugg, and the viaduct between Balsberg and the airport is approaching completion. At Bahnhof Oerlikon, the points for the connecting line to Leutschenbach are installed and the stop is taking shape. The only section of phase two on which no work is yet in progress is the short continuation of this line to Leutschenbach. Phase two will open in late 2008, permitting trams to serve the airport. Recent photos can be viewed here and a complete archive here.
