S-Bahn interrupted for weeks: Tunnel at Alexanderplatz closed


Berlin S-Bahn passengers and car drivers must expect considerable disruptions during the holidays.

The main line of the S-Bahn between Zoo and Ostbahnhof, the so-called Stadtbahn, will be interrupted in parts for two and a half weeks from Monday due to construction work. Initially, according to Deutsche Bahn, no S-Bahn trains will run between Zoo and Alexanderplatz until 17 July. After that, the section between Friedrichstraße and Ostbahnhof will be out of service until 27 July. Replacement buses will then run instead of the S-Bahn.

Additional traffic closures in the city area

In addition, the S-Bahn line between Grünau and Königs Wusterhausen has already been closed since last Friday until 22 August due to construction work. From Monday, the road tunnel at Alexanderplatz in the direction of Leipziger Straße will also be closed until 31 July. After that, the tunnel in the direction of Prenzlauer Berg will be closed until 22 August.
