Mid-December, after approximately three years of planning, the budget was approved for the first section (5.8 km) of the new fully automated metro line U5 in Hamburg.
U5 will be a new arterial route running through the city from Bramfeld to Arenen/Volkspark
The end of the planning approval process is expected in 2020 and construction is expected to start by the end of 2021.
