Antwerp subway map

Simple, instead of underground tram

Metro Antwerp historically referred to as an ordinary tram. At this time there is no trick like the fact that the tram runs under the ground or is based on another railroad. Problems of this kind so there is absolutely no, but said that the underground in Antwerp develops quite differently than usual subway. If a light-rail development in Charleroi, for example, requires about 75 million euros, in order to continue to another branch within the city tram, does not take a lot of money, which leads to a significant reduction in price of the work. In general, such an "underground" has 11 branches. Most of the branches just duplicated the same surpass, but the trams branches in different directions. The greatest density of lines is the center and south-east of the city, where most of the lines converge tram.

Huge opportunities for the construction and use of

However, people can get to anywhere in the city. The lines are created only for the tram, but also that they are practically everywhere, they are very convenient for transportation. In the center of the city they are located about 2-3 streets, so that from any house you can get to almost any route, except for some. In addition, the metro map is fairly simple, which means benefits for tourists - anyone who comes here will understand the pattern of tram lines very quickly, which has a positive impact on his travel experiences. Therefore, when we are talking about the subway Antwerp, do not forget that this is still the subway there, but there is just a lot of tram lines. Moreover, a dense grid of lines, sometimes it seems much easier than the underground circuit, because the tram tracks is easier to associate with the streets, because the roads are laid in the streets. Underground stations are also not suggesting that this type of transportation can get the best view of the city when you travel. Incidentally, it was kind of town and did not allow the builders to complete their work underground in the way it was planned to the usual underground - that is, lay it underground. The city is too old to be able to deal with digging tunnels underneath. In addition, the plan specifies a different period, which was required to complete the construction.

Early completion of

By 1992, plans to build only a small part, but now "Metro" has grown to large sizes, and continued maintenance of the new lines, which then will be located in underground areas. So far, the underground sections too little - of them can be singled out only the underground station, one of the few. In addition, it was built a depot, is also planned for the further building of the city as often as possible to resort to laying tram lines underground. So slowly goes into the subway metrotram or, as it is called in Belgium pre-metro. Both names are equally good for this type of transport, because it is on the one hand, has not yet been underground, and is unlikely to be able to become one, but at the same time, it is no longer a simple tramway, which it was originally. So when will have on the further development of rail transport in the city, then it will be a greater tendency in the opposite direction - toward the subway. So the main idea of the following constructions is to make people use this mean of transport, becuase it is really good to get to the point much faster than using anything else. That is why other lines will be built through the large pack of new buildings.
