On Friday the authorities of Freiburg held an opening ceremony for Suwonallee (the Suwon Ave., named after the Korean city of Suwon), which runs east of the nearly-complete 34,700-capacity stadium. The avenue is aligned pefrectly along the runway of the Wolfswinkel airport nearby.

Along with the avenue, parking sites have been delivered south and west of the stadium, as well as a bus terminal at the bottom of the triangular plot. Also, a tram terminus is in place, however it's yet to be used as part of the municipal network. Tests are expected to run through December. In total, the network works took 18 months to deliver, costing taxpayers some €40.5 million ($48m).

Thanks to special management of the excavation phase, only some 10% of excavated soil had to be transported out. The remainder was used for local needs and landscaping, avoiding some 9,000 truckloads or 600 tons of CO2.

As for the stadium itself, Freiburg fans will have to wait until 2021. It's still unclear when the delayed construction process ends but it's anticipated that the venue would be able to hold spectators during second half of the season.
