Veloförderung Yes, but please not on the sidewalk

It is a development, not like the left city politicians even more: Since soon a year, the stations in the rent a bike system Züri-Velo in the city. That would be no Problem for three parish councillors and local councils of SP, AL, and Green. As you point out in your recently submitted proposal in the city Council first, the Positive side of this "long-awaited" new: "The cycle hire system makes the Cycling to a wide audience in the city of Zurich even more attractive." The criticism follows: "It is not fair to the Cyclists against the foot traffic to play, and to operate the Veloförderung at the expense of foot traffic."

The Veloförderung to reduce the car - and Töffverkehr, but not for dangerous situations for pedestrians. Therefore, the local politicians are calling in their postulate of the city Council to examine how the stations of the Veloverleihs not to create, so it will not fall to the detriment of the safety of the foot traffic, that is, without mixed traffic areas, and without access over the pavement.

Currently, the bike stations would be on the pavement in the way, and a "Querungsgmöglichkeit prevent", criticising the local councils. This is, for example, in front of the ETH main building on the way to the Tram. Further, the stations can be achieved only on the pavement. In order to force the cyclists to ride on the sidewalk, which is supposed to be the pedestrians subject to change. "This leads to a risk to foot traffic and other conflicts between the pedestrian and Bicycle traffic." The stations are also for the Blind and handicapped See a danger, since they are not marked with special markings.

And then the "extra-wide on the sidewalk are still there parked and on the sidewalk a manoeuvring truck". These are used to distribute the bikes evenly on the stations and to bring the broken bikes in the garage. "This represents a further security risk and obstacle for foot traffic," write to the parish councillors and local councils.

While the Left provides the peace between pedestrians and Cyclists, to drive the Publibikes the rights. The SVP has already been submitted last November, a postulate to the town Council. Your claim to the city Council: no new stations on existing Parking lots or Parking areas for bicycles. The SVP took on the issue after it became known that the city had installed some of the stations at the expense of blue-zone Parking spaces, a development that is not to the liking of the Bourgeois, in turn.
