Trams south of Main interrupted for one week

Substitute bus service has been set up 

Whoever is travelling by tram in Frankfurt will have to be prepared for some inconvenience in the coming week. Because of track construction work on Paul-Ehrlich-Strasse, tram lines 12, 15, 19, 20 and 21 run from Monday, 26 August, around 2 a.m., to Sunday, 1 September, around 3 a.m., south of the Main River, either not at all or only on sections. A rail replacement service (SEV) with buses will be set up on two routes. 

12 and 15 will be linked 

After the work currently taking place in Niederrad, the tram line 12 will initially be in regular service again from Friday, August 23. From Monday 26 August, however, there will be no trips between Stresemannallee/Gartenstraße and the University Hospital. Two SEV lines bridge the interrupted section of the route. 

The line 15 does not run between Stresemannallee/Gartenstraße and Haardtwaldplatz during the period mentioned and will be replaced here by SEV line 1.

Coming from Fechenheim, the trams of line 12 go as usual to Stresemannallee/Gartenstraße, from where they go as line 15 to Südbahnhof or to the city limits of Offenbach. 

Lines 19 and 20 dropped, 21 with unfamiliar destination 

The tram lines 19 and 20 did not run. Line 21 does not go to the stadium, but from Stresemannallee/Gartenstraße via Stresemannallee to Louisa Bahnhof. The SEV line 2 runs to the station Oberforsthaus.
