Geneva to remove new road markings but keep cycle lanes over summer
The City of Geneva is being ordered by the canton to remove new road markings as they are not compliant with federal regulations.
In some downtown areas, new pink letters with speed limits and yellow footprints mark out some road crossings.
The city says it’s to highlight new soft mobility options.
But colored road markings are not permitted in the country – so they have to go. Federal law trumps communal law.
Meanwhile, despite some protests, the temporary bicycle lanes in the city have been extended until the end of the summer.
The motoring organisation the TCS claims they’re causing jams – but the city says social distancing measures remain in place and public transport is underused.
