Geneva wants to fight the city’s traffic problems by getting trucks off the roads.

Authorities are outlining 22 different measures to make sure trucks keep their movements though the middle of town to a minimum.

As part of the strategy, rail transport will be used more and there will be relay points around the city to allow loads to be unloaded and then taken to their final destinations on smaller vehicles.

Sanitation trucks will also have their schedules changed to minimize the impact during busy periods.

The new rules will start to be put in place from next year – but won’t be full operational until 2023.
