Referendum for zoo tram extension
filed on: 27.05.2008 (27th May 2008)
The cantonal parliament has rejected the planned tram extension to the zoo by 72 to 55 votes. A referendum will however be held. Besides the costs (claimed to be 27 million), the main reason for the opposition is the loss of 114 parking spaces. Alternatives suggested include a bus shuttle, a multi-level car park and the planned aerial cable car from Stettbach. The latter option is favoured by zoo management.
