The so-called General Project involves the detailed inspection and planning of the intended route and its stations. Building on Wiener Linien’s network analysis, MA 18, the municipal department responsible for urban planning and development, prepares the General Project.
The General Project includes an inspection of the ground and the tunnelling methods chosen.
A proposal to adapt the rest of the public transport network is also developed, with the consequences for road, bicycle and corresponding improvement measures decided upon.
The Construction Management department of the Wiener Linien then executes the project, dealing with everything from submitting plans, tendering and preparing detailed drawings to the actual construction work itself.
