U9

The U9-project takes another step. Next Tuesday the project will be introduced officially by the Munich transit authority (MVG).

The U9 will provide a new crossing of the inner city in direction north-south and is along with the second suburban rail tunnel crossing the city from east to west a major project in the recently strong growing city of Munich (1,5 % to 1,8 % p.a. population growth).

What are chances of them reiving the airport maglev? Or building anything other than slow S-Bahn current service to link MUC?

U9? That's really THE news!
As for the map above, the route is just a draft, with onlu transfer stations shown, right?
There will be more stations?

Maglev project? It's dead since almost a decade! After the 2nd S-Bahn tunnel is completed there may be a chance to get a faster airport link. But not only the city crossrail is limiting capacity also tracks at S1 and S8 need to be extended. In the east the city wants a long tunnel for the S8 to gain building space. This tunnel will be costly so there will be little progress until the next years.

Yes, i guess there will be more stations. I could imagine "Pinakotheken / TU" and somewhere near Elisabethplatz in the north. South of Hauptbahnhof there will be a new station somewhere around Theresienwiese.

But is it just a 'dream' or the U9 will be built?

One main Problem in Munich is the so called 'Stammstreckenkonzept'. So along with the suburban rail also each two subway lines converge into one tunnel crossing the city center. U2 and u6 plus the u3 north are running at their capacity during peak. U5 has some extra capacity due to the weak u4. It is a long term task to provide each line its single tunnel through the center. Since northbound u3 and u6 are the most crowded lines it is obvious to start here. Most likely u3 will remain running via Marienplatz while u6 will connect Hauptbahnhof with Allianz Arena and TU Arcisstraße with Garching.

Never ending discussion. If you consider the crowds entering the S-Bahn in Pasing the U5 extension is worth to build anyway. But politicans always tried to combine the decision building the U5 with the 2nd S-Bahn city cross rail. Technically a complete BS because the 2nd cross rail will be build in order to give a better service for the suburbs and an express link through the city center. BTW, the U5 should not end in Pasing but in Freiham a new quarter for 25.000 people in the west and providing stations at the denser quarters in Westkreuz and Neuaubing.

Ok thanks, i just was wondering because there was a lot of talk about the 2nd S-Bshn tunnel for years and now the new U9 popped out. But it looks, the new tunnel will be built first... if ever

2nd Sbahn city crossrail and U9 are somehow quite independent projects sinc3 the Sbahn is run by Deutsche Bahn and the state of Bavaria orders the service and the Ubahn is run by Stadtwerke controlled by the city council. Today i am quite optimistic that both tunnels will be built and at least the U1 via Goetheplatz to Candidplatz is discussed.

In that case would be the tunnel between Candidnpl. und Kolumbuspl. not used any more? Or maybe still, only for some lines like U7?

The separation of U1 and U2 is still a project far in the future. Maybe the bypass will be via Kolumbusplatz - really no clue.

The Münchner Verkehrsgesellschaft (Munich transport corporation) presented their plans for a new underground line "U9" between Implerstraße and Münchner Freiheit:



At Implerstraße the new underground line branches off and runs with stops at Theresienwiese (maybe with a new station under the fairground of Oktoberfest or an expanded four-track station of the exisiting station U4/U5), Hauptbahnhof (with a new station under the tracks of regional- and international trains), Pinakotheken (connection to exisiting tram lines 27/28) and forwards to Giselastraße, which will be extended to a four-track station. Also the tunnels between Giselastraße and Münchner Freiheit will be extended to four tracks.

There are also several ideas for new connecting lines (U10, U11 or U12):

Example 1:


Example 2:

I would like to see a station somewhere around Nordendstraße / Elisabethplatz. Plus the widening of the station Theresienwiese will be almost impossible. It would be better to see a stop in the south-west corner of Theresienwiese. This would connect new quarters to the U-Bahn plus would balance the Oktoberfest (today the north dominates).

The concept of many many lines is very misleading (U10, 11, 12... WTF?). I would prefer a line each tunnel. So U6 should run through the new tunnel via Hauptbahnhof while the U3 remains on the old tracks via Odeonsplatz and Marienplatz.

München to double transport investment
18 Feb 2014

GERMANY: München utility body SWM and transport operator MVG have announced planned investments of €335m for 2014. This is more than double the investment made in 2013.

The budget includes €175m for new metro cars, including completion of payments for the Siemens C2 trainsets ordered in 2010. A tender is to be called for additional trams, with €32m allocated for this and completing payments for the Siemens Avenio vehicles ordered in 2012.

The largest share of the €90m allocated for infrastructure work is going towards modernisation of Marienplatz and Hauptbahnhof stations; this will cost €23m. A further €20m is to be spent on metro and tram track renewal. Metro-specific investments include €10m for renewal of metro infrastructure equipment, €8m for replacement of station lifts and escalators, and €4m for the construction of a depot for the new trainsets.

Also included in the budget are funds for installation of additional on-board CCTV cameras and ‘infotainment screens’, as well as the planning of new tram routes.

The new C2 trainset will be very similar to the older C1 train. At least regarding the design.

C2 metro arrives in Munich
21 FEB, 2014


Photo: Siemens

The first C2 metro train has been presented by Siemens and operator MVG in Munich.

Siemens is building 21 six-car trainsets for Munich’s metro operator, with the remaining 20 trains expected to arrive by 2015.

The new fleet has been described as the biggest single rolling stock order in the history of the city’s urban rail system.

Last year, the C2 was awarded the prestigious ‘Red Dot Award’ during the annual Designers Night in Essen.

On the 12th November 2010 the Munich transport corporation announced the order of 21 hexamerous metro trains by Siemens. The so called C2.11-trains are based on the platform "Inspiro" of Siemens metro trains. The C2.11 is 114,80 m long, 2,90 m wide and contains a capacity for up to 940 passengers. Maximum speed is limited to 80 km/h, but 90 km/h are technically possible. The presentation of the first C2-train was celebrated on the 21st February 2014 at the station Georg-Brauchle-Ring:
