No, this would be a very tight areal then

(Ganz im Ernst...die kleine Straße rechts ist einfach zu klein. Da könnte ich dem Nachbarn von gegenüber ja in den Kochtopf gucken Das wären ja dann schon italienische Kleinstadtverhältnisse.

Außerdem ist man in Berlin doch der Meinung, dass man immer noch viel zu wenige Grünflächen hat!

2009! Are you serious? If the line is finished, how long can it take to test and get ready? Quite frankly, this is a bit of an embarrassment.

Of cause, I'm also pissed off as I'll be arriving at the new hauptbahnhof in a couple of weeks and was sort of hoping to check out the new line ;O)

There are big problems at the station "Brandenburger Tor" due to some planning and building mistake.

I aggree.
They need years and years to finish a small stretch of a underground line.
Hows that possible?
Madrid is almost building an entire underground network in the same time.

Construction is propably going to start in October!

Kommt alles darauf an ob das mit dem Verkauf des BVG Busplatzes hinter dem Zoo rechtzeitig klappt. Das Riesenrad wird nämlich genau dort stehen!

Here is another new project:

The plan is to make the street smaller(it looks like a Autobahn through the city at the moment )

And of course new buildings will take place, but just have a look at this pictures:

Now:



In the future:
