Cottbus, Frankfurt (Oder), Brandenburg / Havel: A Tram for All – Berlin

Monday, February 26th, 2018 | bitcoin updates


Need is known to be inventive. Also the financial need. In order to save money, the three cities of Brandenburg / Havel, Cottbus and Frankfurt (Oder) have now taken an unusual route: they want to collect new trams of a uniform type. By the large order they hope for a cheaper mass production. Up to 45 railways, which cost more than 120 million euros, want to order the three independent cities. This will also ensure the continued existence of environmentally friendly tram operation. And the new vehicles can replace the not yet accessible railways. However, the money is not enough for a large order. Brandenburg / Havel needs twelve new vehicles to replace the Tatra railways from GDR times. These are almost 40 years old and, as the public transport companies said, "technically exhausted". Economically, they could not continue to operate. The situation is similar in the two other municipalities: Cottbus operates with 21 Tatra trains, some of which, however, have recently been rebuilt so that they can persevere as "cross-country skiers" for several years. For new railways so far the money was missing. In Frankfurt (Oder) are still 18 Tatra trains on the road, which were built by CKD in Prague for the cities in the GDR. Funding is a "drop in the bucket" The country supports the purchase of new trains and buses until 2022 with a total of 48 million euros. The cities and the transport companies trust, according to the company in Brandenburg / Havel, that the state government will extend this support program until 2030. The country would then probably carry about half of the acquisition costs. For the German Railway Customer Association, the previous funding is only a "drop in the bucket". With the money, only the beginning of the purchase of new trains is possible; but there is more need. The Greens in the state parliament demand to double the funding. It should also be updated after 2022, said the transport policy spokesman for the group, Michael Jungclaus.In Brandenburg / Havel hopes to be able to put the first of the new railways in 2024 in operation. Because the financing is only secured until 2022, the public transport companies in the joint tender with the two other cities initially only four courses to order firmly, for eight others, a non-binding option is provided. As a result, the unit price per vehicle increases again, because the manufacturer can not calculate from the beginning with the mass production. But cheaper than an exclusive order, it still remains.

Partnership for the future Even after the purchase of the single tram type, the public transport companies expect further savings – through close technical cooperation and lower operating costs, which can, inter alia, by sharing spare parts storage.In the past, the tram operation in the cities was due to the Financial hardship several times before the end. With the joint order, there is now a future well beyond 2050, the transport companies in Brandenburg / Havel.Mit the new railways, the cities can also meet a requirement of the Passenger Transportation Act, which aims as early as 2022, a complete accessibility in the To reach local traffic. This is not possible with the old Tatra cableways because they have steps. In part, the companies have solved the problem by installing a middle section with almost continuous entry. In this way, Cottbus was the first city in Germany where barrier-free access was possible on all journeys. However, accessibility is not compulsory. The law allows exceptions when they are specifically named and substantiated. This could also help small businesses such as the Schöneicher-Rüdersdorfer and the Woltersdorfer Straßenbahn, which still use old-timers on their routes east of Berlin, which lead into the city, and are barely able to acquire new railways. Or they can find a smart solution.
