Re: Ban cars from cental Zurich

Yes that would be great. We can all use the roundway which thanks to Zürich having all the space to build such will be a piece of cake...

Oh no wait, we'd have to tear down tons of houses and invest many billions to realise such..

Towns that ban cars from centre have the roads and space to come up with proper alternative routes.

Zürich doesn't.

Feel free however to look on the map and tell us what blocks all should be torn down to realise your proposed routes.

Shit the alternative routes. Simply ban the cars fron the centre. Its their problem to look for alternative routes or use public transport!

I didn't think you'd want to exit the motorway anywhere near Zürich and just continue on past?

Actually the construction of a lake tunnel has been discussed for the last 50 years: https://www.nzz.ch/zuerich/die-unend...nel-ld.1353504
Even though the project is marked in the cantonal structure plan it's probably never gonna happen.

Re: Ban cars from cental Zurich

Here's the scam. All cars within the black line are banned. Only transport of local deliveries.

Re: Ban cars from cental Zurich

I do feel that a large part of the problem is the pedestrians, and the public transport system that supports them.

The answer is clear - get rid of all the trams and buses, the pedestrian crossings and the pavements (sidewalks) and ban pedestrians and cyclists from using the roads. Fairly sure that will remove much of the traffic problems, but if not we can tarmac over the railways as well to increase road capacity.

Its simply time to stop pandering to these car drivers! They have to adapt. Not otherwise!

It would need an exit near the water on the Gold Coast side to take away a decent bunch of traffic that now uses Qualbrucke.

Town could use a better connection between the two sides. Now one either uses Qualbrucke, or the closest things down is the boat in Horgen or the Bridge near Rapperswil both are not great options when living/being close to town.
