Tram ex­pan­sion

  • Since 2019, the construction work on the premises of the former Reininghaus brewery in the west of Graz has been increasing substantially and it is becoming clear how this area will develop and change.

    Around 10,000 people will live and work in the new district of Reininghaus in a few years’ time. Parallel to the first districts that are already being constructed here, the basis for a modern infrastructure is also being laid. By the time the new residential, office and commercial units are ready for occupancy, Alte Poststraße and the tram connection will already be finished. However, construction equipment will be part of the everyday cityscape in this and subsequent years.

    With the construction of the tram, Reininghausgründe will be given a high-quality link to the Graz public transport network – a fundamental factor in a successful district development.

  • Into the city district of the future by public transport

    The implementation of My Smart City Graz will revitalise the former industrial zone to the north of the central station. On an area of around 8 hectares, residential, office and commercial spaces are being developed under a smart overall concept that incorporates sustainable technologies and mobility solutions.

    A fundamental component of the development is the connection to the Graz tram network. The start of construction for the tram connection was the end of April 2020. Starting from the existing tracks of Lines 1, 4 and 6 in Asperngasse, the Graz tram network will be extended by around 1.7 km. From as early as the end of 2021, the new tram will run via Daungasse and Waagner-Biro-Straße in a northerly direction until Peter-Tunner-Gasse and connect the new city district in an environmentally friendly way.

    There will be new stops in Daungasse, Waagner-Biro-Straße at the junctions to Starhemberggasse, Dreierschützengasse and north of Helmut-List-Halle. The final stop will be at Peter-Tunner-Gasse. In order to keep the disturbances for citizens and commercial firms as low as possible during the construction period, a transport and construction concept has been drawn up that reduces the impairments wherever possible.
