15’000 passengers daily, which is the decisive value, of which at least 15’000 people getting in and out, apply in the city of Zurich as hubs of public transport. So it is in an urban regulations. At such stops, shops are allowed to open without a permit on Sunday, unless you are directed to passengers and the load area is smaller than 200 square meters.
the city of Zurich and the Avec-owner, Valora AG, it was clear that the Shop met on the hard court these terms and conditions. After all, according to the city, the station is used on average of 15’747 people per day. Six Bus and a tram line operated on the hard-court, also the train station hardbrücke in the vicinity. Therefore, the branch since the refurbishment in the year 2017, Sunday from 7 to 21 o'clock open.
"there's No room for grace"
might be in order soon. The Union Unia has filed an appeal and of the Zurich economy Directorate in the first instance. The statutory regulations regarding the shop opening hours are detailed and restrictive, it is said in the judgment, available to the TA: "you leave no room for grace."
do you Want to, that Shops may open on Sunday?Yes.
, The average daily passenger volume over the entire week for the Canton not a suitable criterion is: "To serve the branch on Sundays to the needs of potential travellers, so specifically look at the Situation in the period of the disputed Hours." But since the thing look quite different. Of the six buses only three operate on Sundays. And, the line 31, holds on Sunday only three times on hard court.
hard bridge is too far away
in the vicinity of the Hardbrücke was no Argument, so the economy Directorate. Finally, the distance between the two stations is about 400 meters. It was "very unlikely" that a larger number of passengers to the hardware bridge to get in and out, the hard place to Require use of means to it in the judgment.
Not the Ministry of economic Affairs has clarified whether the small Avec can apply as a Store that is designed to meet the needs of travelers. The Unia doubt it, because he is under the hard bridge from the station is not visible at first glance. The question could be left open, does not mean it is in the judgment, because of the hard place did not fulfil the conditions for a node of public transport anyway.
The judgment is not yet final. The Valora AG, it has moved to the administrative court. (Tages-Anzeiger)
