Trams for Winterthur

Winterthur, the second city of the canton of Zürich, may well be on it's way to reintroducing trams. A study into the potential of trams recommends construction of a 5.4km line from Bhf. Töss via Sulzer Areal, Hauptbahnhof, the city centre to Oberwinterthur and Bhf. Grüze. The line would connect with railways at both ends and there would be through running to Embrach, Bülach, Seuzach and the Töss valley, partly replacing train services. Winterthur's old tram system closed in 1951. The town now boasts a modern trolleybus system, but if trends continue, some routes will reach their capacity in the coming decade.
