The Bad Zurzach community is a huge step forward with the century's project with the East Bypass: the federal court has not responded to the last opponent's appeal. Already in June, Aargau Administrative Court had not responded to a woman's complaint for formal reasons.
"We are very pleased that after the clear capability of the polling station in January 2012, the way is ultimately free," says Reto S. Fuchs, municipal director of Bad Zurzach. "The Eastern Bypass will help us to develop the center and increase our quality of life, together with the Canton, we now want to take action quickly." The Aargau Canton also wants to systematically mitigate their historic cities through traffic. The Eastern Bypass is designed to guide north-south traffic from the city center, upgrade historic markets, and strengthen Bad Zurzach as the focus of regional development. The average daily traffic of about 9800 vehicles mainly and about 11,000 vehicles on the pedestrian street has a heavy burden on the community.
Opponent from Dietikon
Initially, there were 28 objections to the Eastern Bypass. VCS had made a complaint, but later turned. The pensioner, who grew up in Bad Zurzach and lives in Dietikon, had resisted the project until the end. Together with the heirs community, it has an undeveloped land area in the immediate vicinity of the planned eastern bypass and fought after 75 million projects when the Aargau Board of Governors issued its green light in March 2018.
The woman complained, among other things, of her too high, not in the unobstructed slope in the tunnel. In an emergency this would be an unbearable risk. On Wednesday, my Canton stated in writing: "The Federal Supreme Court has not responded to the appeal that has been postponed." There is no clearer explanation for the reasons, says Simone Britschgi, Communications Department at Building, Transport and Environment (BVU). "But that's good news for Canton and the Bad Zurzach community."
The beginning of the land acquisition process
"If the Federal Supreme Court had opened the case, it would have delayed the project for at least another year," says Guido Sutter, project manager at Canton. Nevertheless, there are still other obstacles: The next step is land acquisition. "We negotiate with landowners and make contracts." If the agreement can not be reached, the courts will again claim. "However, it is no longer the project itself, but the country's price," Sutter says. In addition to land acquisition, delivery of main deliveries is complete. Construction is expected to begin at the beginning of 2020, as announced by the Canton of Construction, Transport and the Environment. The year of construction is about four years. The overpass includes a 530-meter tunnel, leads to the village center and connects two new roads to Bruggerstrasse and Zürcherstrasse.
Earlier in January 2013, Parliament approved a loan of FRF 49 million. Other emergency exits and tunnel ventilation were one of the reasons why the 2014 Summit had to vote for an additional FF 16 million. The Austrian overrun of Bad Zurzach's total cost is FRF 75.26 million, of which FRF 65.26 million is approved by the canton. The Bad Zurzach Community is worth FRF 10 million.
