Stadtbahn for Winterthur?
filed on: 15.04.2009 (15th Apr 2009)
Five years ago, Winterthur considered a tram system based on a mix of new lines and shared running on existing railways. The plans were dropped on account of their high costs. Recently, however, the concept has resurfaced. This time the proposals are less ambitious and focussed more on existing railways which could carry a "Regio Stadtbahn" with 15 minute headways similar to that of Zug. One of the main challenges needing to be addressed is the heavy rail traffic on many of corridors in the Winterthur area.
