As part of the Stuttgart 21 project, routes of Stuttgart’s streetcars will have to be rebuilt or reconfigured to make room for the new rail tunnels. This is because the tunnels to the planned station cross the city rail lines on both the north and south sides of the existing station. The Staatsgalerie stop has been raised as required by this work to allow a crossing of the new rail tunnel. The construction work is taking place under cramped conditions in an inner-city street area with high traffic volumes. The new Staatsgalerie stop is being built using the cut-and-cover method as a three-track tunnel with a vaulted ceiling shell.
