Strasbourg group looks to end city road access hell
First publishedon www.WorldHighways.com
Following the French government's scrapping of a proposed motorway beltway around Strasbourg, professional federations and elected officials at the Alsace chamber of commerce and industry have called for solutions to road access problems within the city.
A Strasbourg-based working group is said to be being created to look at potential ways of improving access to the city. These are set to include strict speed regulations and special traffic times for the ring road, the relaunch of the Piémont des Vosges-Strasbourg tram-train, tram connections, a high level bus service, and the establishment of a tax on heavy trucks.
