What some large cities want to try out in Germany, but Transport Minister Scheuer refuses, is to be implemented in Zurich. The largest city in Switzerland wants Tempo 30 on almost all streets.
In the Swiss city of Zurich, Tempo 30 is to be introduced on almost all streets. The conversion will take place gradually until 2030, announced the city council on Wednesday.
With just under 430,000 inhabitants, Zurich is the largest city in Switzerland. There are already a lot of 30 km / h streets there. But a good 100,000 residents would still suffer from high street noise. He will also give exceptions, and on streets where no one will be disturbed by the noise, Tempo 50 should continue to apply.
In Germany, Federal Transport Minister Andreas Scheuer does not want such area-wide Tempo 30 zones in city centers. “We want to give the municipalities more room for maneuver for tests and have long since made it easier to set up Tempo 30 zones at danger spots or in residential areas. But a general, area-wide Tempo 30 in city centers is too general for me, ”he said recently in an interview with the German press agency.
