And because of the space character for the vegetable bridge is Central, they will invite you to linger. The quality of stay is of the utmost importance, it is said in the final report of the assessment panel. "The great contrast between the maximum density of the old town and the view from the bridge gives rise to a soothing breather." Striking is especially the seaward bridge to the edge of the planned town hall bridge. In contrast to today, this will be a new in a straight line, the current bridge edge is stepped.

The present concrete bridge was opened in 1973, and renovation is no longer in need of. In 2017, the city Council has decided not to renovate this easy, but to build the same new. The cost to the city estimated at 32 million francs. The Canton takes approximately 6 to 7 million – the distribution key is not yet exactly defined. The city of Zurich's voting population is expected to be able to vote in a referendum on the project.

coordination with the city hall renovation

one of the reasons for the new decision also building projects, which are realized some kilometers to the South, in the Canton of goods. The high-water protection of the Canton and the city needs to be improved. Therefore, a new Sihl is in the discharge from adit between Langnau am Albis and Thalwil planned, the water of the Sihl and the lake of Zurich leads. However, this has the consequence that more water reaches the lake, which means that more water from the lake flows into the river Limmat. Today's town hall, bridge would not be ready for these water masses, however, would take them to the eye of a needle. Together with the construction of a new bridge, the Limmat river is dredged sole, so that more raw water can drain away.

Although today's concrete building is only 46-year has the city hall bridge and a long history. It connects since the early middle ages, the two old parts. From the 14. Century served the bridge as a market place, where the common name of the vegetable bridge comes.

in addition to the vegetables bridge the town hall will be renovated in addition, yet another historic building: yourself. Here, the Canton of spring, however, is a leader. Around three years, this tag should take. And the city wants to, as she told today, whenever possible, the construction of a new bridge, the renovation of the city hall to coordinate. During the construction period, a temporary is created, four and a half meters wide bridge, so that the two parts of the old town remain connected to each other.

From Monday, 20. May to Friday, 24. May 2019 are exhibited the models of the project team on the town hall bridge. (Tages-Anzeiger)
