Hey,DrT said:Can someone summarize The New City Center project overall? How big (square meters of construction), commercial versus residential components, timeline for development, tranportation links, etc.. Looks very nice and very ambitous in terms of the numbers of buildings.
When do you think trams will be seen in Vilnius?Mantaz said:There are as well plans to build few tram lines crossing this area.
I live in Melbourne, Australia. But am heading for a holiday to Europe in a weeks time which will include a few days exploring Vilnius & Lithuania. I will also be visiting a number of other cities blessed with trams which include Berlin, Stuttgart, Krakow & Zagreb. I like to see the different kinds of trams various cities have. Am eager to check out the new TMK 2200 trams in Zagreb.varlamas said:Sabunjar: where do you reside now, if you don't mind me asking? I totally agree with you re: trams. I love them and hope to see them in Vilnius before next decade. Environmental and financing studies are underway at the moment.
We have an extensive train network (like a German S-Bahn) in Melbourne but the centre of the city has an underground line that does a 'loop' of the Central Business District. So if you want to get from one part of Melb to another, part of the trip will invariably be underground.Svajoklis said:I can't wait for the trams, they are my absolute favourite means of municipal transport as well (although I do also love underground railway, but coming from London I'm more used to that, whereas trams have some kind of romantic, continental connotations for me)
