The countdown is on. By the end of 2019 we aim to commence with the construction of the U4 extension to Horner Geest. The draft planning has already been completed, and there is now also an estimate of what the two new stations Dannerallee and Stoltenstraße, the reconstruction of the Horner Rennbahn station and the tunnel route could potentially cost. Our experts have calculated around 465 million euros for the project. Cost variances and possible price increases are already factored in to this estimate.
It is set to be one of the major infrastructural projects of the century for our city: the U5 line is on its way. A new arterial route running through the city that will finally connect the outlying districts in the east and west with the city centre. The plan: The U5 subway line is to run from Bramfeld via Steilshoop and City Nord, down through Winterhude to the main station and then out further west.
This planning is already in full swing, and is being conducted together with local Hamburg residents. It is Hamburg’s largest transport project of the coming decades.
