The Zagreb earthquake which struck back in March this year caused a huge amount of disruption in the Croatian capital and the tram lines were far from immune to it. Thankfully, as of today, all of ZET’s trams will be running as normal once again, operating along Zagreb’s most famous street (Ilica) and passing Ban Jelacic Square, which wasn’t possible for several months.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 2nd of July, 2020, all of ZET’s tram lines will run according to the valid summer timetable as of today, the 2nd of July, 2020.

After the expert services performed detailed inspections and eliminated the dangers that threatened the lines after the earthquake, and the ZET teams checked the correctness of the tram tracks and the accompanying voltage network, the city’s trams will begin running along Jurisiceva, Ilica, Praska and past Ban Jelacic Square again today, ZET reported.

”As of today, all of the tram lines that operated on the altered routes are returning to their usual routes,” ZET’s statement reads.

ZET reports that line 13 (Kvaternikov trg – Zitnjak) is returning to operations, while at the same time the extraordinary bus lines 608 (Trg zrtava fasizma – Vlaska – Kvaternikov trg) and 611 (Glavni kolodvor – Praska) will end.

The final works on the regular maintenance of the tram tracks in the central square are still in progress, but they will no longer affect the use of the tram lines in those areas, which was the case since the earthquake struck earlier this year.

“On this occasion, we once again call on passengers to abide by the Decision of the National Civil Protection Headquarters on the obligation to wear a medical mask or face mask when using public transport, and ZET will, as before, disinfect the vehicles three times a day and ventilate them to reduce the possibility of spreading the coronavirus infection,” they state from ZET.
