Since 29th June the "Line-swap" of the metro lines U2 and U3 has been finished. Now the U2 (red line) is running from Niendorf-Nord to Mümmelmannsberg, while the U3 (yellow line) is now a circle line with a branch to Wandsbek-Gartenstadt.

The reason for this adjustment was to increase capacity on the branch to Mümmelmannsberg (the heaviest used branch): The red line can now operate with longer trains because all stations with short platform are now exclusively served by the yellow line.

Here is the new rapid transit map valid since 29th June.

This is the old map:

Poppenbüttel = ****ingborough

That English map is very interesting, thanks for the post. It must have taken that guy a long time...

You serious about Poppenbüttel?

"Poppen" is more Cologne dialect than a Hamburg expression.

Three of those stops about 100 years ago:

"Roding's Market":



"Central Station":


"St.Paul's"

New developments in Hamburg:

transit stations:

- the bus terminal in Barmbek will be completely changed: the bus stops will be distributed north and south of the elevated metro-station. The old bus terminal north of the metro station will be razed down afterwards. The changes will allow a better routing of the buslines in the area and a more direct access to the metro. The area of the razed down bus terminal can be used for new developments.

- the bus terminal in the suburb Billstedt has been renewed.

- the bus terminal in the suburb Poppenbüttel has been renewed. The old terminal was planned for a ridership of 20.000 people/day and 45 busses/hour. Nowadays there are 60.000 people/day and 60 busses/hour.

old:


new:



New metro-line U4:
- the estimated total costs for the 4km long tunneled track have been raised to 323.6 million euro. That is 25.6 million euro more than initially estimated.
- the structural work of the first tube has beeen finished, construction of the second tube will start in January
- estimated opening of the new line has been recalculated from Dec. 2011 to Sept. 2012

Introduction of a Light Rail system

- The Hamburg senate has finally approved the plans of building a modern light rail/tram-network. It is planned to build a 52km long network until around 2025.
- the light rail system will run as often as possible independent from car traffic, where it crosses car traffic, it will have right of way and the traffic lights will be connected to the tram system.
- preparation phase for the first 7.6km stretch with 12 stops has now begun. If this phase goes well, construction of the first stretch will start in 2012. Opening of this stretch will be in 2014.
- estimated costs per km: 15-20 million euro

Map of the planned network:
red: the first construction phase (7.6km)
orange: planned extension
yellow: possible expansions


More details and visualisations on the first stretch here (in german)

U4 Hamburg

Hamburg Metro Line U4 extention, interactive.
In German, but should be no problem, I think.

Clink on "red-points" to get more.
"Ubersicht" means overview, by the way.

Since 1st of September it is forbidden to drink alcohol or carry open alcoholic drinks in public transport. And from today on everybody being caught drinking alcohol in busses, metros and metrostations has to pay a fine of 40 Euro.

Lots of young people used this as an opportunity to make a big metro-party, similar to that one in London when the alcohol ban was introduced there. It seems there were at least two big groups on different routes.

After decades of stagnation in Hamburg's u-bahn network, two humble events in short succession were rocking the local metro fans:

7 November 2012: A set of the new air-conditioned walk-through train type DT5 now runs every weekday on a tour along all lines.



29 November 2012: Two new stations are open to the public (Hafencity-Universität on weekends only as it's in the middle of a construction area). So the new line U4 actually consists of just one new station plus a stretch served together with line U2.

And the tram/LRT plans have been cancelled last year, by the way.

So no trams at all in Hamburg in the near future? And no U- or S-Bahn extensions too?
