The double-track extension, which includes new barrier-free stations at Sudetenstrasse, Pionierstrasse, Egon-Eiermann-Allee and Knielingen North, is due to open at the end of 2020.

The €14m project is being funded with the aid of a €6.1m grant from the federal government, which was awarded to the state of Baden-Württemberg through the State Transport Financing Act (LGVFG).
