As of Saturday, March 14, tram transport in Bratislava will change due to the resumed reconstruction and modernisation works on the tram line from the city centre to Dúbravka.

These changes will affect the route of tram line Nr 4, which instead of going along the Danube embankment will go via the tunnel. Transport along the Danube embankment will be secured by bus Nr X6, from Kráľovské Údolie (former PKO), via Chatam Sófer, Most SNP, Ľ. Štúra Square, Šafárikovo Square (a new stop), Malá Scéna up to Nové SND (the new building of the SND). It will run at 7-8 minute intervals.

Tram line Nr 4 will go via SNP Square up to Kapucínska Street, the tunnel and then continue along its original route towards Karlova Ves and Dúbravka.
