|The Utrecht sneltram is a light rail scheme in the Dutch
city of Utrecht. The sneltram light rail system was constructed during the late
1970s and early 1980s, and the first sections - between Utrecht city centre and
the suburb of Nieuwegein - opened to passengers on 17 December 1983. A second
branch of the line, to IJsselstein, opened 14 December 1985.
A portion of the line in the city centre was closed in 2013 due to construction at Utrecht Centraal station and is set to reopen within a few years. By 2018, a new branch east to Uithof is proposed to open.
Tram 5020 at the temporary terminus near the Centraal station on 24th October
