Client: City of Kehl
The city of Strasbourg (CUS) and the city of Kehl are planning the extension of the Strasbourg tram line D as a crossborder tram connection over the river Rhine to Kehl. For the moment the terminus is foreseen at Kehl’s station forecourt.
The additional extension of the tramway to the city centre of Kehl and the utilisation as tram-train respectively, including a connection to the regional rail service to Offenburg, are as yet only a prospect for the future but were kept in mind for the planning.
CUS asked TTK for planning services in the cross-border area and in Kehl in addition to the existing contract. This included in particular:
As TTK was also responsible for the planning in Strasbourg an integrated view for the Kehl plans was possible. The bilingual elaboration of all plans and documents was necessary both in the planning phase as well as the final results presentation.
The start of work is expected for 2012.
