Heidelberg breaks ground on tram diversion
18 Jul 2016





GERMANY: A groundbreaking ceremony for Heidelberg’s Bahnstadt tram project took place on July 15. Lord Mayor Eckart Würzner, Baden-Württemberg Transport Minister Winfried Hermann, Technical Manager of transport authority RNV Martin in der Beek and CEO of operator HSB Michael Jäger attended the official start of work.

Serving a new development zone, the 2·2 km route along Grüne Meile and Czernyring is due to replace the existing 1·5 km alignment along Eppelheimer Straße to the west of the city centre by mid-2018. As part of the Mobilitätsnetz Heidelberg project approved in 2013, it will feature grass track and three new accessible stops at Eppelheimer Terrasse, Gadamerplatz and Hauptbahnhof Süd. Routes 22 and 26 will connect the area with the city’s main station. Journey times on Route 26 from Kirchheim are expected to take around 4 min longer

Chemnitz tram-train phase 1 inaugurated
Monday, October 10, 2016



A ceremony was held in Chemnitz on October 1 to mark the completion of the first phase of the Chemnitzer-Modell tram-train network

Completion of the project had been pushed back due to delays in obtaining BOStrab approval for the fleet of eight dual-mode electro-diesel Citylink tram trains for operation on the CVAG-owned tram network in Chemnitz, although the fleet of Stadler Rail Valencia vehicles has been in service on the Chemnitz - Mittweida line since April

Buses to replace trams on German inter-urban line?
Wednesday, October 12, 2016



The future of tram services on the 21.7km metre-gauge Thüringerwaldbahn from Gotha to Tabarz is in question after local bus operator Steinbrück offered to provide the same level of service for less than the €2.8m which Thüringerwaldbahn und Strassenbahn Gotha (TWSB) receives annually

The formal proposal to the Administrative Court in Weimar has now been made by Steinbrück claiming that using buses could operate without subsidy, despite the need to buy 13 new vehicles, and will save around €30 million over ten years. A decision is expected in December

Gotha tram network reprieved
Friday, November 04, 2016



THE future of tram operations in the German city of Gotha appears assured after a proposal to replace the network with buses was rejected by the Thuringia state government on economic grounds

Local bus operator Steinbrück had offered to provide unsubsidised bus services on routes currently served by trams. However, Gotha Tramways (TWSB) and Thüringerwaldbahn have now been granted permits to continue operation of lines in the city as well as the 21.7km inter-urban line to Tabarz

WWII-era bomb was found in Augsburg, 100 m from Jakobertor tram stop. The discovery led to evacuation of 50,000 residents from the area and partial suspension of public transport:

Light rail plans progress in Wiesbaden
17 Feb 2017



GERMANY: The municipality of Wiesbaden has approved €3·4m of preliminary planning work for the city’s first tram route. The Land of Hessen is providing €465 000.

When complete, the Citybahn light rail line would link Wiesbaden to the existing metre gauge tram network in the neighbouring city of Mainz at one end, and to the tourist-oriented Aartalbahn that runs north from Wiesbaden at the other

I was in Hamburg at the weekend and was surprised to find that there is no tram network. Is there a specific reason for this as according to Wiki there used to be one?

The complete network of up to 167 km was abandoned between 1960 and 1978, as the tram was seen as an old-fashioned means of transport after WWII. Cars were on the rise and there had to be room for them in the streets. Modern buses were more comfortable to ride than the old trams that were designed in the 1930s. A common sight was a trolley pole jumping out of the overhead wire, which made the tram come to a halt mid-street, blocking cars, until the driver had climbed out of his cabin and re-fiddled the pole into the wire with a stick. The overhead wires were also ugly to look at. Altogether, the system was seen as old-fashioned and was planned to be replaced by subway lines. When the abandoning was almost completed, the economic crisis of the 1970s reduced the subway construction to a minimum.

At about the same time, the same thing happened in the Western part of Berlin. The Eastern part still had the tram, and after the fall of the wall, the united Berlin was a tram city again.

At least three times, political parties seriously attempted to re-introduce sleek new tram systems in Hamburg, the municipality each time spending millions on planning that was shelved later due to opposing initiatives or after elections. So Hamburg is the only city of its size in Europe without any trams today. Copenhagen, though slightly smaller, is another example.

Thanks for that. Didn't know about Copenhagen being the same either.
