City Views #68: Kaiserstrasse IV

Between the two lanes of Mülheim’s Kaiserstrasse are the rails of the tramway, which comes through there at least every ten minutes in peak times. The tram has its own path on the upper part of the street, but further down cars and trams have to partly share the street, which not always really works. The future of the tramway here in Mülheim is, however, uncertain – the city is hard at work closing down some or even all lines for cost-cutting reasons, but the country government is against it because it had heavily subsidized the development of the tramway net. But that’s a very long and complicated story – too long for a photo description.
