A good map I found, where you can clearly see the route of the CAT (south-east-bound):

Just a question. What do you know about the far future program to transform the Wien Mitte railway station in the City hauptbahnhof?

Yes.
Wien Mitte is not meant to be the new central station.
Wien Mitte is just about to get improved an redone.
The new central station will be around the area of the old Südbahnhof (southbound railway station) and will no more be a terminal station.

New S-Bahn station "Wolf in der Au":



Unfortunately I couldn't find a better picture, this is still from the construction process.

It's an entirely new stop along the Westbahn (S50, regional trains) in the far (wild?) west of the city, between Hütteldorf and Hadersdorf, mainly meant for commuters. You can locate it on the map along the blue branch in the west.

I was going home today on S50 from Westbahnhof to Penzing and it was weird to hear: "Our next stops are Wien-Penzing, Wien-Hütteldorf and Wien-Wolf in der Au".

Planned, planned, planned, but never realized.

I recommend you to visit a very good site about the Vienna subway, where you can read the whole U5 story:

hmm... nothing special then... they just cut that stretch between Hutteldorf and Hadersdorf in half... i wonder how does that influence on time tables... probably not much, but two-three minutes for sure... and speed is reduced too...

There is a lot of construction going there for the new Lainzer tunnel (http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lainzer_Tunnel), a new railway tunnel, which will link Westbahn railway with the new central station. This tunnel will be connected with another tunnel (http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wienerwaldtunnel). To connect the both a huge underground switch-hall was constructed, which started to operate last week.

Long story short: In order to make the residents nearby buy the whole project and all the disturbances during its construction, they were granted a new S-Bahn station
