Friedrichstraße and unter den Linden : How Berlin's Boulevards partially car might be free

How nice it must be to stroll on this Boulevard. The New guard, the Linden Opera and all the other Baroque or neo-classical buildings. The Bebelplatz over to the Humboldt-Uni without having to stand for long at traffic lights, or the fear of run over: to remain according to the will of the Alliance "city for people" not a nice dream, but as quickly as possible in real. Its members have now passed, presented proposals, such as the Boulevard unter den Linden and the Friedrichstrasse might be partially car-free, so Marlene Dietrich's true Declaration of love to the promenade again: "Untern Linden promenier' I always like to'," she sung.

This is actually in line with the end of 2016-launched red-red-green German government Alliance, the coalition Treaty explicitly, at least Under the Linden "motorised individual transport to the Brandenburg gate to stop". However, the East-City is happen in the heart of almost nothing. "We are still in the early stages," he said on Sunday, Jan Thomsen, spokesman for the Senate transportation management, on request. The planned feasibility study was still in preparation. A snail's pace. So, it looks "a city for people" and therefore makes pressure.

Alliance wishes pedestrian zone between French and Leipziger Straße

at The beginning of 2018 formed Alliance of around 40 city planners and engaged citizens and transport activists proposes to terminate The street unter den Linden, between the loving servant of the bridge on the Berlin Cathedral and the Charlotte street for Cars. The Charlotte street crosses the Boulevard just before the junction of Friedrichstraße. Only for cyclists and the BVG, the Linden in this section is to remain open.

At six points, the Initiative wants to prevent the cross traffic from side streets. These retractable bollards are intended to serve, can only be used by buses funct. Realize all of this, as soon as the large construction site for the extension of metro line 5 is cleared between the Rotes Rathaus and Brandenburger Tor, and U5, as planned, from 2020/21 to your operation.

order In the Friedrichstrasse, one of the Alliance wishes for a pedestrian street in the area between French road and Leipziger Straße. This is urgently needed in view of the decline of the Friedrichstraße. In fact, stores are increasingly empty, the once highly-acclaimed shopping Boulevard must also be from the point of view of the Senate strongly attractive. For the first time made headlines the Alliance "city for people", as it was in the Advent of 2018 to the relevant section of Frederick road for a two-hour block, and in this way thousands lured pedestrians to the future car-free future enthusiasts.

How the displaced motorists react?

the Motto of the Initiative is: accessibility ensure – attractiveness increase. The delivery of traffic to get even after the closures, to the shops, says spokesman Stefan Lehmkühler. The delivery of success is in excess of rear access roads.

But as the repressed Car-driver react? Around find secret paths of the drum, and negatively impacts residential areas? Clay cooler is arguing for a "fundamental change" in transport planning. "If one offers as in the past, redirects, reinforces the car's power." One barrier, however, tracks, or whole streets, without substitute routes auszuschildern, take the number of Cars there, as well as in the environment, according to experience. This is the example to show "unter den Linden". Since the Boulevard for the subway construction site has been torn up, traffic flows in fact on a large scale.

The designers of traffic management, but replacement paths continue to be indispensable. To find this, was "highly complex," says spokesman Jan Thomsen. Presumably, the feasibility study has not been driven, therefore, to vigorously promote.
