An approx. 2.2 km long section of the U5 in the city centre of Berlin is currently under construction to close the gap between the existing underground structures at the Berliner Rotes Rathaus and Brandenburger Tor stations. Construction started early 2012 and the connection between Alexanderplatz and Brandenburger Tor is planned to open in 2019. The alignment starts from the newly built Rotes Rathaus Metro station, passing under the River Spree, the planned new Berliner Schloss and the Spree channel, and then follows the street Unter den Linden before arriving at the Brandenburger Tor. Three new stations have to be constructed at Rotes Rathaus, Museumsinsel and Unter den Linden, with the centrepiece being the Museumsinsel station where ground freezing techniques are being used.
Geplant und derzeit im Bau ist die Herstellung eines ca. 2,2 km langen Lückenschlusses der Trasse zwischen den bestehenden Tunnelanlagen am Berliner Roten Rathaus und der Station Brandenburger Tor. Baubeginn war im Frühjahr 2012. 2019 soll die Verbindung zwischen Alexanderplatz und Brandenburger Tor eröffnet werden. Die Linienführung der Trasse verläuft innerstädtisch von der neu zu errichtenden U-Bahn Station Rotes Rathaus unter der Spree, unterhalb des zukünftigen Neuen Berliner Schlosses und dem Spreekanal entlang der Straße Unter den Linden zum Brandenburger Tor. Die Trasse beinhaltet drei neue Stationen (Rotes Rathaus, Museumsinsel und Unter den Linden). Herzstück ist die Station Museumsinsel, die im Schutz einer Vereisung hergestellt wird.
