A major remodelling project is in hand at Stadelhofen, which is requiring the entire area to be closed off from 11th July to 16th August (the project was described on this newslog here).
During this period routes 2 and 4 are being turned at Bellevue, with the Tiefenbrunnen line bus worked. Route 11 is diverted from Bellevue via Kunsthaus and terminating at Tiefenbrunnen. To prevent overcrowding at Bellevue and Klusplatz, route 8 is diverted at Stockerstrasse and turns at Bahnhof Enge. Route 15 is suspended throughout. Forchbahn is terminating just short of the commencement of the works in Kreuzstrasse and a temporary surface-mounted switch (California switch) has been installed there permitting it to gain the other line.
Due to the suspension of route 11 on this section, Forchbahn is serving all stops as far as Rehalp and the units are hence marked as route 11 in addition to S18. A selection of photographs of the construction and these aspects is available here.
