Another step towards Tram Zürich West
filed on: 01.03.2007 (1st Mar 2007)
Following the approval of the cantonal contribution of 90 million Franks for the Tram Zürich West project on Monday (26th), the city council yesterday (28th) approved its own 59 million contribution by 76 votes to 35. Subtracting the federal contribution, these contributions reduce to 45 and 23 million respectively.
Opponents of the project have announced that they are to seek a cantonal referendum in addition to the city referendum of June (this is hardly likely to derail the project seeing 66.6% voted in favour of Glattalbahn in February 2003). In contrast, pro-tram politicians are pressing for an earlier realisation of the Schiffbau - Hardplatz extension than outlined in last year's 2025 strategy document.
