I decided to visit Schottenring station one last time before the extension of the U2 on May 10th. The current route from Schottentor to Schottenring will be degraded to a connecting track to the U4, as the U2 platforms move under the U4, instead of ending between the U4 platforms.

First, I tried to capture how surprised I was by the awesomeness of the new escalator. Then you will see a U4 emerging from its dive below the current U2-track, next you can see a U2 using this very track above. Then decided to risk it and sticked my camera out of the window to film Schottentor-Schottenring. You can see the descending tracks to the deeper, future platforms, various building material left from the reconstruction and - during the return to Schottentor - an ascending train from a "secret" connecting track to the U1 (at ~02:15).

U2 extension (Schottenring-Stadion)

5 new stations

Schottenring

The new network:


The old U2 platform at Schottenring, between the U4 platforms:


The very impressive escalators between U4 and the new U2 platforms:


Reminded me of Copenhagen a bit:


A V type trainset:


The station lies below the Danube channel. This is the eastern exit:




I like the design:




The perfect train for the stadium line:



Taborstraße

Very similar in design:


Daylight all the way down to the platforms:













Praterstern

Connect to ÖBB trains, S-Bahn and U1





The eastern access building.


The western entrance is integrated into the train station and provides the connecting tunnel to U1:









Messe-Prater

Daylight - here, as well:




The station from above:









The line rises above the surface between Messe and Krieau.



Krieau










Stadion

Definitely the most important station and atually the reason for the extension. This stop serves as the main gateway for Ernst-Happel-Stadium, which is Vienna's EURO 2008 venue.



There are three tracks, in order to cope with the masses:








These gates will only be in use on matchdays:












Hope you enjoyed this trip!

So much subway construction up and down the Danube - with Prague and Vienna opening new stations this month and Budapest coming soon with its M4.

Well, Prague is not exactly next to the Danube, and if it would have been up to them they might have rather choosen not to be in the Danube monarchy back then either... but I know what you mean...

lets say central Europe.

Football: Vienna U2 subway will move in mysterious ways

VIENNA, May 10, 2008 (AFP) - Vienna inaugurated on Saturday a new subway line extension, guaranteeing a faster transit from the city centre to the stadium, less than a month before the start of the European football championships.

The U2 line will now travel in just 14 minutes from the opera along the Ring boulevard, which will welcome the fan mile during the Euro, all the way to the Ernst Happel stadium, where several matches including the final will be played during the championships which will run from June 7-29.

The inauguration is the final touch to Vienna's efforts to retrofit its infrastucture in preparation for the tournament.

Euro 2008 is being jointly hosted by Switzerland and Austria.

The extension to Aspern on the other side of Danube is under construction since 2006. To open in 2010 according to der Plan.
