Yes, cyclists and pedestrians are allowed to use the bridge at the moment. Tram line is to operate from mid July (shame on us)

Bratislava is almost kept its all tram routes, and extended it later at very satisfactorily towards northeast and southwest area. Rolling stocks and up gradation is also good. The interesting part is it passes through a tunnel near Chatam Sofer. Four routes use this short hill tunnel. For the first time the network has crossed the River Danube, to reach the southern part of the city. The green bridge is very soothing. By this extension route 1 was reintroduced after 30 years. In a sentence, Bratislava tramway is one of the best tramway network in the world.

I have three questions—

1) Are route 7 is still running on weekday rush hour? Or it is closed?

2) Why tram service is closed from Kamenne nam to Most SNP?

3) When the tram route will be extended upto Janikov dvor? Will both route 1 & 3 will serve that extension?

I'm happy to know this. But IMHO a city with almost half million people should have also a metro system.

There is no status as there is no concrete plan to build a metro. The city is going for a light rail network instead.

No metro in Bratislava in a long term horizon. There is nobody to finance it. EU funds are used for rail PT instead.

1) yes, is running
2) is in normal service, but sometimes is closed for example beacouse of some event in city centre (no more than one evening)
3) is the most likely option, but who knows

That´s right. Plans for metro belong back into a time, where there was a competition between slovak and czech. The diameter of Bratislava metro-tunnel should have been bigger than that of Prague etc.

Basically I could imagine to build a tunnel-section for tram in the city, following the old-metro alignment. Coming from the new tram to Petrzalka, getting underground north of Dunav, running to main-station and turning back east. This could relieve the network and make space for longer trams if it would be necessary one day.

Why? There are smaller cities with metro. For example Newcastle (300,000 inhabitants), Lausanne (250,000 inhabitants), Rennes (215,000 inhabitants), Brescia (less than 200.000 inhabitants)...

This was to expect ;-) Newcastle is just the center of a bigger agglomeration and it has much more in common with urbanrail and S-Bahn. Lausanne is a hilly city without much space for tram-corridors. Rennes could have had a tram but they decided another way. Take Nuremberg, which has (as town) the same size as Bratislava. Bratislava already has a good tram-system with modern tracé in the newer parts of the city. I remember that VAL-Project for Bratislava in the 1990s. It simply made no sense to substitute tram with metro as the only bottleneck of the tram-system may be in the old-town.-district (if there is a problem at all).

Personally, I do not think that particularly population determines the necessity of subway. On contrary, the population density does. And it reaches very small values in Bratislava.
