Project term

January 1, 2020 to December 21, 2022

The number of local transport passengers in the German city of Jena has increased dramatically over recent years. At peak times, the trams are sometimes overfull. Therefore, the Jena local transport company, Jena Nahverkehr GmbH,  aims to replace all trams progressively from 2023 onwards. This not only means that the Burgau tram depot in Jena must be altered and expanded ؘ– the whole tram network in which the trams operate must also be enhanced and extended.

Drees & Sommer was commissioned to provide project steering services for the alteration work in the tram depot in Burgau and for the improvement of the infrastructure in the course of the Der 800er project.
