So anything new on the progress of the new U55 stations? Any further setbacks/delays? Or still a go for opening in 2020?

There are no U55 stations. What you mean are stations of the U5 extension,

The latest picures of the project that is a prologation of U5 and that connects to the it to the 3 existing stations of U55. These U55 Stations will be part of U5 after Opening



http://www.projekt-u5.de/de/bautagebuch/


You will find dated pictures here. The site exists in english too, but the german version has better documentation and the pictures will be found in order by the year they were taken


Opening is still expected in 2020 maybe early 2021. Critical path is station "Museumsinsel", that is beeing built in artificial frozen ground beneath the river Spree. An other possibility is that this station might open later

Unexpected water level and freezing ground is one thing, but Warsaw had the same problems and since 2010 they did not constructed 3 stations under the river in also dampf ground (they even had a flooding of a tunel). They constructed 7 of them, opened them to the service, constructed 6 more to be opened in this and next year and are proceeding additonal 8 to be constructed and opened by 2022. I would say that planing and execution of that investment seems to be a bit under the standards. I like Berlin, so I hope there won't be any BER style problems in 2020/2021.

@ flierfy - Sorry, yes I meant the 3 new U5 extension stations.

@ BurnyB - Thanks for that site. I was aware of it, but it is not updated and has outdated information.

@ Lw25 - Yes, this is what I'm getting at. I'm not an expert, but it does seem Berlin is super slow at development. It seems to take longer for projects to get completed in Berlin in comparison to other cities.

My main question and point was does anyone here have insider knowledge of delays, or do you think these stations will actually open on time in 2020 as the website says they will. Thats all. Thanks

In 1990 Berlin kind of already had the infrastructure for the amount of people who were living in Berlin just a while ago, so it's only recently that there has been any urgent need to build more things.

Btw, the timeline for the U5 extension seems to compare decently to for example Crossrail in London. Sure, Crossrail is a far larger project but the basic concept of building a decent sized tunnel infrastructure is similar.

As I mentioned before, capital of a next country to the East constructed their second metro line in a similiar condidtion (freezing ground, dampf ground, under the river, even with flooding of the tunnel durring construction) few times faster than Berlin.

I wouldn't take Crossrail as a good time reference...

But Crossrail is definitely taking Berlin's investments as a role model
