One of the many things which the Freedom Party hates is public transportation. It is working hard on increasing the costs, delaying the extension via legal means and
ultimately preventing the modernization and transformation of the Tram into a light rail (Regio-Tram). In short, they are trying to turn the whole project into one big money
graveyard because a lot of money has been already invested into it and extension works have already begun.

Let's hope they won't succeed. The polemics used are just out of this world in certain ways. The FP is saying for example that huge monstrous trains, causing incredible
noise, will rape the delicate oldtown and basically destroy it .. never mind that Baden near Vienna has something very similar and seems to cope with it perfectly fine.

Here a good map of the old town connector project:



black lines show already existing tracks (in the east this is alreay a small extension), red is yet to be constructed.

It really is just that short piece of track (even though it is demanding with a new bridge, a city and a busy old town corridor) and thats what all the fuss is about. It will
take until mid 2017 or so to finally realize it. (if the opponents do not manage to postpone it or to derail it). The bridge will be reconstructed starting in January 2016
already. I think this will be the absolute point of no return, if they haven't already passed it quite a while ago.

PS: The FP is also not very democratic to go down that path of open and destructive Nimbyism, just because it was utterly outvoted in the municipal council with all the
other parties having voted in favour of it.
