Antwerp welcomes new premetro line and stops thinking of real metros.

Antwerp has from 27 october 2007 on, a new premetroline: line 6. The concept for premetro is digging a tunnel under the city center where trams can drive through, and after a couple of years change it into a metro. There was a plan to give Antwerp a metro (not sure) but now with the opening of the fifth premetro line, this plans are no more than dreams. Here are some pics and info:



Tram at terminus above the ground.



Station Astrid (zoo and Central Station)



Station Meir under the shopping street with the same name.



Entrance to Opera the biggest and busiest of the stations.

Here is a map but: only lines 2, 3, 5, 6 and 15 are premetro the other lines are just trams. Al the underground stations are marked with a symbol before the name. http://www.delijn.be/images/tramnet_..._tcm7-1666.pdf

It could take a time to load because it's PDF.

This is the map I found:

Is it just another line using the already existing tracks that were in use by the other lines?
So no new tunneling or anything like that?

No new tunneling, only renovating the tunnel a bit the line is the only (and first) that runs between Astrid and Diamant. But the green tunnel will be in service around 2012-2015 for premetro to the suburbs of Antwerp. You can compare the system with the U-Stadtbahn in Germany and Austria.

Here is a video of the tram underground in Opera: http://nl.youtube.com/watch?v=0yXq5r74NyQ

and above the ground: http://nl.youtube.com/watch?v=kQO4cX...eature=related

Please post your feelings about it

Antwerp central station is really grandiose for a city of this size.
