After 94 days of works, the tram route between the Roundabout and the Market Sq. – part of Korfantego Av. – will be re-opened. The tram lines 6, 7, 11, 13 and 19 will return to service the section on Monday morning, 24th of December.
The holdup of tram services was connected with the redevelopment of the City Center and the first stage of works between the Rialto cinema and the Roundabout being conducted by the consortium of NDI and Balzola. “Thanks to the high efficiency and engagement of the prime contractor and the fair weather we are able to deliver this tram section after 94 days of works” – commented Daniel Muc, press spokesman of the City Center redevelopment.
It is estimated that trams servicing the Roundabout – Market Sq. section carry up to 100 000 passengers every day.
The re-opening of the tram traffic does not mean the first stage of works in the area is completed. Some paving works including the grass surface laying on tram tracks will be continued. The delivery of the first stage is planned at the beginning of the second quarter of 2013 according to the present schedule.
