Construction sites of the Frankfurt underground and tram until the end of 2019

Construction sites of the Frankfurt underground and tram until the end of 2019

Even though the very large underground construction site was mastered during the summer holidays, construction on the Frankfurt underground network still has to continue sporadically. The VGF will continue its maintenance work on the underground and tramway network until the end of 2019, with the focus now on the tramway network following the underground summer construction site. Track construction in Niederrad was completed between 12 and 23 August. Background information on the associated track greening can be found in the VGF blog contribution "Das Gleis erblüht" (The track blossoms) of 22 August at

 Work on the track on the harbour bridge will also be completed from Saturday, September 7 to Monday, September 9. Work will continue on the U3 line (21 October to 25 November) and track and switch construction on Adalbertstrasse from Saturday 28 September to 4 November. Both works lead to service interruptions on the regular lines and the use of replacement buses.
