Do you hate the road repairs in Zürich?

It seems that they are constantly at work everywhere in Zürich. Yesterday was " The Day of the open Baustelle" on Escherwyss Platz!

No. It's a small price to pay, and there are plenty of alternatives.

Re: Do you hate the road repairs in Zürich?

Not sure what it is like in Australia, but it is nothing here compared to UK, where you either have constant roadwork set up with nobody actually working or potholes large enough to swallow a school bus.

Agreed Jako.

Roadworks here are fantastic compared to the UK.

Yeah was thinking about it the other day when I was driving through the roadworks between Waedenswil and Thalwil. Speed restriction 100 km/h. Compare that to the works in UK, where they mostly are 40 miles and even sometimes down to 30 miles with average speed cameras in action, irrespective of whether there are workers or not.

There is constand work, not least as most of the work on the roads in reality is work on the infrastructure BELOW the roads. And this is particularily the case in the Escher Wyss Platz Hardbrücke Rail Station area in the next few years to come

Re: Do you hate the road repairs in Zürich?

You take 1 drive around Aargau and you will be happy that Züri does any road repairs at all....

Re: Do you hate the road repairs in Zürich?

I have noticed that in Switzerland there are a lot of improvement works. Rather than just repair roads or railways, they take the opportunity to upgrade.

In England it tends to be far more maintenance and repairs, just trying to keep things working.
