    After the opening of the Museumsinsel underground station, a line 5 underground train stops at the station and passengers get on and off.
This means that the last station still closed on the new section between Alexanderplatz and the main station opens. According to BVG, the major U5 project is now complete except for some remaining work on the surface. After ten years of construction, the 2.2-kilometre extension of underground line 5 went into operation in December. The company estimated the cost of the new line at up to 540 million euros. New stations were also built at the Unter den Linden/Friedrichstraße intersection and in front of the Rotes Rathaus. At Museum Island, Berlin's 175th underground station is now open.
