After over a month of construction work, the repairs of tram tracks in Sarajevo's Marijin Dvor District have been completed.
The section of tram tracks between the so-called S-bend near the Holiday Hotel and SCC Shopping mall had been severely damaged after decades of neglect. The reconstruction work started on October 2, and was successfully completed on November 9.
During the reconstruction, tram traffic was suspended from the Central Railway station to Bascarsija, and the lines were operated by buses. Citizens complained that the buses were not frequent enough, which caused crowding. Also, the reconstruction work caused significant traffic congestion, especially during the morning and afternoon rush hours.
All tram lines will be fully operational as of November 10.
