"flawed" is the Only thing that came to mind as you viewed the weekend or even yesterday, at midday, the new Traffic signals at the helmet house on the Limmatquai. In both directions of travel speed of 50 kph was allowed, but only for a few meters.
the city has plaques Installed in the new Traffic a few days ago. According to the request of the TA in the service Department at traffic councillor Karin Rykart (Green) it only took a half hour to get a table, the pace 30 picked up, was replaced by a panel, which is limiting the speed to 30 kilometres an hour. "The Signals before the music Hug was wrongly there," said spokesman Heiko Ciceri.
led to 3 meters for a speed of 50
The false panel has an absurd Situation. With your Tempo 30 would have been short-lifted to the lantern lane at the music house Hug. But really the Gas would not have been able to give the car drivers or motorcycle riders. Because most of already have to turn right after about 30 metres at a right angle to the münster bridge. And, right at the beginning of the bridge there is a panel that limiting the speed to 30 kilometres an hour. The has painted the city in large letters on the floor.
Also who is on the Limmatquai straight in order to had been stopped a few metres after the junction on the münster bridge. Signs on both sides of the street announce pace of 30. And point to the fact that motorized vehicles have only very limited access to the track in the direction of Central.
Until Rudolf-Brun-bridge cars to cargo handling or for hotel guests with Luggage, or Taxis are allowed to order. Since yesterday, shortly after 14 o'clock everything is again different: On the whole route, the restriction on the speed limit is 30 now. "The plaque in front of the music house Hug is for those traffic participants who turn from the light lane on the Limmatquai," says Ciceri.
"If it seems also illogical: This is due to the legal certainty."Heiko Ciceri, spokesperson for Department for transport, Zürich .
Absurd, the Situation appears to be that motorists encounter, the turn from the Stadthausquai on the Munster bridge on the banks of the river Limmat. At the end of the bridge on the left of the road, a traffic sign speed limit 30 on stands, about 3 meters further, on the other side of the road in the direction of travel of Bellevue, in turn, is a panel, which limited the pace to 30 miles an hour. Tempo 50 would be allowed – if not feasible – these are just a few meters.
"Everything correctly", said the press-Secretary of the Department for transport. "We need to first signal that the Tempo-30-Zone at helmet house. And show that there is a Tempo-30-track begins." The difference of Zone and range: In a Zone does not apply in General, Right-of-way, on a track, however. And Tempo-30-zones must not be lifted, pace-30-routes. The latter ends at the latest at the next junction. "If it seems also illogical: This is due to the legal security," says Ciceri.
The Situation at the Helmhaus in Zürich is not unique. Similar to the motorist encounters of the köschenrüti road in Seebach or in the school building and Franklin street in Oerlikon.
