There's quite some substance to the Salzburg underground plans, however it would be an extension of the already existing Lokalbahn/S-Bahn Lines 1/11 (i.e. heavy rail). According to the existing plans it would be extended by four new underground stations and another five stations on the surface. The only thing that is still unclear is who exactly will pay for the costs.

Graz is currently busy expanding its S-Bahn network and I haven't heard of any plans for new underground sections.

Just a small update: Currently there is a big debatte going on, whether the lightrail should be extended or a new commuter railway should be built. All political factions, except the socialists, favour the latter project, called "City S-Bahn". The socialist party wants to transform an existing railway into a lightrail and connect it with the existing network via a tunnel. The main problem with this plan is that it would be more expensive than the S-Bah project and it would destroy the heavy rail "Mühlkreisbahn", which is currently used for both passenger and cargo transport.

Linz orders more Cityrunner trams
10 Feb 2014



AUSTRIA: Linz Linien has ordered six more Cityrunner 100% low-floor trams for €19m, Bombardier Transportation announced on February 10.

The trams, from Bombardier’s Flexity family, are to be manufactured in Wien. Deliveries are scheduled to begin in mid-2015. The trams will be 40 m long and 2 300 mm wide with capacity for 224 passengers.

The vehicles will be needed to operate the 4·4 km extension of the 900 mm gauge Line 3 from Leonding to Traun, approved last year and planned to open in 2016

S-Bahn Oberösterreich was launched yesterday.

The greater Linz area gets an S-Bahn network. The change to the previous regional train system is only gradual however, network map and S-Bahn logo aside. So we are talking here mainly about a rebranding and an improvement of existing services There are 5 lines, all lead to and terminate at Linz Hbf. The one substantial thing about this transformation is that frequencies have been partially improved, especially also at late hours and previous gaps. And further improvements are planned in the mid-term.

The system runs mainly on an hourly frequency, at least on the central parts, with mostly 30 min during rush hour, with the inner S4 even operating on a 15 min frequency during peak time.
