Investing in Zürich West
filed on: 23.11.2006 (23rd Nov 2006)
An article in today's Tages Anzeiger newspaper discusses three defining projects which are to be realised in the Zürich West area for a total of 400 million franks in the coming years. Besides the tram extension from Escher-Wyss-Platz to Bhf. Altstetten, these are the renovation of the Hardbrücke viaduct (under which the tram will run) and remodelling of Pfingstweidstrasse (among other reasons, also to accomodate the tram). The tram extension itself is costing 150 million of which 59 million must be financed by the city (of which 12 can later be recovered). The city's contribution is likely to sink further thanks to the recent infrastructure fund decison. However, to qualify for this money, work must begin by 2008. The project is subject to a referendum in June.
