Zürich as it might have been: Lindenplatz U-Bahn stop

(click to enlarge)

In the early 1970s, Zürich was planning an underground (U-Bahn). The plans were rejected in a referendum in 1973. This artist's impression shows how Lindenplatz stop might have looked. Some sections on which work had already commenced were put to other uses, including a tram subway. For more information on this, visit this page:
From U-Bahn to tram tunnel.

The illustrated stop would have been built by cut-and-cover. Compare this to the deep-level-bore station that was planned at Schaffhauserplatz..
