Dear Guest in Vienna,
We, the ”The Environmental Initiative ”Rettet-die-Lobau” (”Save-the-Lobau”) want to inform you about our concern:
The city of Vienna plans to build two major motorways along and across the nature reserve ”Lobau – Danube National Park.
Consequences of the planned motorways:
Actual situation of traffic planning in the region north and north east of Vienna
The main motorways in Vienna crossing the river Danube are blocked with traffic regularly. A series of studies on regional planning about the development of traffic in the region North and East of Vienna confirm that about 90 % of the expected raise of traffic will be commuters to Vienna.
While there are several new motorway routes in the state of planning or construction there is a huge deficit in public transport, as well in suburban and regional trains as in buses and trams in the outer parts of the city of Vienna.
Additionally the train connections to the Czech and Slowak republic have not been rebuilt after the fall of the Iron curtain. Parts of the tracks are not electrified, at several rail tracks only a few hundred metres of rail connection to cross the borders are still missing as if the Iron Curtain never had been removed.
e.g. The route from Vienna via Marchegg to Bratislava is still single track without electrification, the second track had been removed when these countries became Eastern bloc states.
Therefore we demand:
We ask you to support our concern and to inform your friends and colleagues about it.
