Tram Affoltern: Voters approve revised building lines
filed on: 18.06.2012 (18th Jun 2012)
The weekend's referendum included a challenge to the city's plans to re-draw a building line in Affoltern to create space for the future tram alignment (and a stop). Opponents had called for a referendum on this modification, but 71% of voters have now approved the change.
Priority of the proposed Affoltern tram link has increased, with the city council presently planning to realise it between 2019 and 2022 (VBZ's Vision 2025, published in 2006, had placed the realisation of the line at an undefined date beyond 2025). Hurdles to the realisation of the Rosengarten orbital line as well as last year's referendum on Städteinitiative have permitted this project to move forward.
