Why Zurich participates in the project cargo Metro says Councillor Filippo Leutenegger in an interview.
Mr. Leutenegger, why does the Civil Engineering Department of the City of Zurich in the construction of an underground rail freight ( Click here with the report)?
We help with the planning principles, but are not investor.
What brings such a tunnel of the city?
We have an excellent transport infrastructure. But she is in peak periods – especially morning and evening – overloaded already. We are therefore interested in intelligent solutions for the future, in order to distribute this load better on all times of the day.
And Cargo Sous terrain is such a future solution
That will still have. But the idea is good. Because the technology of such goods tunnel is relatively simple in contrast to a high-speed tunnel like Swissmetro. Cargo Sous terrain seems to be a pipe dream. We might goods around the clock, with no ban on night driving, unmanned and environmentally friendly through the whole of Switzerland consign. This also provides for the City Logistics completely new opportunities.
The fine division may be carried out with smaller trucks. 2030 can drive unmanned and electrically they may. So they make hardly any noise, which they can distribute goods at night with a low pace, without the residents being disturbed in their sleep. Thus, the infrastructure could be used better and we could relieve the peak periods.
Will Switzerland in 15 years have a cargo Metro?
Yes, the project will be implemented
No, the project fails to Finance
No, the project fails to politics
In a first rough planning the goods Metro provides access nodes before in Oerlikon and in the Herdern. Is this enough? Or it needs a further stroke in the Brunau?
We’ll see. So far we have not.
What is because the commitment of the Civil Engineering Office at Cargo sousterrain?
We bring our know-how, especially historical information on traffic flows.
Also Urban money?
So far we have only spoken by a small amount over which the Civil Engineering Department could dispose itself.
It is – as I said – a symbolic amount, in order to document the interest
If a later, more substantial contribution to the discussion
This can still not say. (Tagesanzeiger.ch/Newsnet)
