Re: New Station for Zurich

Does anyone still have a copy of the SBB's Brochure on the below-mention
previous project "3 und 4 Gleis Zurich HB-Wipkingen? I picked one up at
Knoten Zurich 2 years ago but it was lost in the mail. A good photocopy
will be fine. It was issued by the SBB Administration Information
Office.

My sincere thanks!

Is the new project a replacement of the previous one?
Yes

The project of a third and fourth track Z�rich HB - Wipkingen -
�rlikon would
have meant an additional bridge with additional traffic (additional
noise) in
the city. There was a strong opposition against this.

Third and fourth track would not have solved the lack of plattforms in
Z�rich
HB. Thus it was planned to maintain for a long time the four tracks
behind
Sihlpost now under construction as a transitory solution. This would
have
meant long ways to reach certain S-Bahn trains over decades. There was
a
strong opposition against this.

The now adopted project of an additional four-track underground
station gives
a satisfactory solution for additional plattform capactity and makes
through-running possible for all S-Bahn trains now changing direction
in
Z�rich HB. Additional capacity Z�rich - �rlikon is gotten from the
direct
tunnel HB - �rlikon.
