WEST GERMANY TOPS EUROPEAN SPENDING

More money is being spent on rapid transit in the German Federal Republic than in any other European country. Within the next ten years most of the country's major cities will have U-Bahn systems operating or under construction. Construction of the Munich U-Bahn is continuing, following the opening of the first section in May last year (IRJ, May 1972, pp 18-21). In Hamburg, the last station of a new line is now under construction. And in Frankfurt a new 8.5-km tunnel is being built. Other cities now extending, building or planning U-Bahns include Nuremberg, Hanover, Stuttgart and Cologne.
