Dresden continues to green tram lanes to improve the urban climate

28 May 2013

In the mean time, over 29 Kilometer of the 270 Kilometer urban rail network has been covered with grass. This means that the Dresdner Verkehrsbetriebe AG is providing the city with an additional 110.000 sqm of green surface.

Green tram lanes provide several benefits to the city in terms of quality of life. It makes the rail system more quiet. It captures CO2, it captures water and it cooks the micro-climate. And last but not least: it looks good!

Scientists calculate that the beneifts of green tram lanes range up to about one million euro.
