It looks weird - fields and metro in the middle of nowhere.

This is a picture from the "Seestadt-Aspern". Currently its just a field with some cranes but in the next 15 years 20 000 people are planned to live there and an equal number of jobs should be located there.

Anyway, this fine areal view shows the entire U2 extension:

To me this is incredibly smart. Only a few places around the world have such forethought with their public transport planning these days. It's a definite good thing and I envy Vienna for this.

Basically right now (despite being one of the biggest construction sites of Europe) it still is the middle of nowhere, that is why only every second train drives out there.

It's a good thing though that infrastructure is being built before everything else.

It looks no more wierd than a new 4 lane road to nowhere, which occurs in many countries where new estates are being built

The Copenhagen Metro is partly funded this way, here they build a part of the system on some fields southeast of central Copenhagen and then sold the fields to developers.

WARNING! The following video is only suitable for the greatest PT freaks out there

A video of the new part of tram line 26 (~ 4 km in real-time).

Brilliant way to make money and let the public profit from that and not just some investors, when it was the public, who made the real invesment.

Well, Madrids Metrosur went through fields even underground. Baiscally this system runs if the city/investor bought cheap land because it lies nowhere. After that city/investor supports construction of metro and will be paid back from higher prices for estates. Western part of Berlins U2 and U3 was built the same way 100 years ago. Now Westend and Dahlem belong to the most wanted places for housing.

Kind regards

3866 is just the number for the control car.

All the numbers can be found here: http://tinyurl.com/p6ehg64

Objection your honour! I strongly disagree with what you state. The sheer beauty and artistic perfection of this video make it absolutely mandatory to have every school child watch it and make it a canonic item of the best of transport documentaries.

Let alone, the switchover from right-hand to left-hand service in order to serve the island platform - is there any precedence of this practice anywhere in the world?

Yes, the so called Schwamendingen-tram in Zürich is a reminder of a formerly planned metro and so the three underground stations do have island-platforms whereas the tramway is single-way operated. I think crossovers are grade-separated.

Same was done with Krivoi Rogs fast-tram when they operated Tatra trams, don´t know actual state.

Last but not least Charlerois ill-fated Semi-Metro has some (not grade seperated) crossovers from right to left operation because the initial plan wanted to run a circle line with so called antennes.

Kind regards

Why does the tram cross over to run on the otherside when it goes on the elevated section?
Will they put grass between the tracks where it only has the yellow soil at the moment?
