Mobility turning backwards

The announced Masterplan Mobility is not turning, but largely a step backwards.

As highlighted by the cost: Die A 52 would ca. 1 cost-billion € in Essen. The sensible measures public transport, charging infrastructure, municipal fleet, Bike paths cost only a fraction of it, but as the basic building blocks of mobility turn be represented. Apropos A 52 completed in tunnel: Since when a city may determine, such as motorway construction, if they do not even pay? So far, that is not so. From such a hot iron should the let fingers. Other roads, especially highways, Incidentally move the car upward portion, instead of reducing it.

This is all known and yet it is written in a master plan. It can be a try again, Perhaps the readers of the master plan are so stupid.

Transport in Essen: Good and bad news

First the good or only the wicked?

The good:
Of 1930 to 1952 was the Fahrdrahtbus Mettmann–Gruiten (Photo: Historic village Gruiten) as the first modern electrical Oberleitungsbus operating in Germany for a distance of 5,8 operated km locally emission-free as overland route.

Traffic turning immediately! When taking decision in Essen last the majority opinion of the population true?

Matching Parking Day am 23.9.17 : According to a representative Survey by the ADFC “speak out 87% (!) of respondents generally for more space for cyclists and pedestrians, as well as fixtures.” (NRZ vom 16.9.17).
