The initial situation
The Tram West Tangent is an important component of the local transport offensive in Munich.
The Tram West Tangent is intended to significantly improve public transport services in the west of Munich, especially along the busy Fürstenrieder Straße. The new line starts at Romanplatz in Neuhausen and ends at Aidenbachstraße in Sendling. The 8.5 km long route crosses the S-Bahn main line and three underground lines. As an essential part of a tram tangent concept, the project aims to avoid detours via the city centre and reduces interchanges. The financial contribution according to GVFG (German “Municipal Transport Financing Act”) from the federal government and the Free State of Bavaria is to support the realisation of the project.
