People power pushes politicians to re-think

filed on: 03.11.2014 (3rd Nov 2014)

The discussion around the future of route 2 in Altstetten, in which planners wanted to divert the tram via Bahnhof Altstetten but Altstetten residents fought tooth and nail to keep it on its present course through the centre of Altstetten, will probably be settled to the satisfaction of the residents, with only Limmattalbahn running to Bahnhof Altstetten.

In another magnanimous incident of listening to people power, it is now also highly likely that route 17 will continue operating as a fully fledged all-day tram route once route 8 is extended to Werdhölzli. With its function to be replaced by the future 8, planners were proposing to withdraw the 17 (with the exception of some peak runs) but residents protested about losing a direct tram to Hauptbahnhof.
