From IRJ, 2015-09-14......

"SWITZERLAND's Federal Office of Transport (BAV) has granted Basle
Transport Authority (BVB) planning permission for the Swiss section of
the cross-border extension of tram Line 3 to Saint Louis in France.

The project will extend the line by 3.4km from its current terminus on
Waldinghoferstrasse in Bergfelden to the Bergfelden border crossing
serving a park-and-ride station near the A35 motorway before
terminating outside the mainline station in Saint Louis.

Services will operate at 7-8 minute intervals as far as the border,
with trams running to Saint Louis every 15 minutes.

The SFr 98m ($US 101m) extension is due to open at the end of 2017."
