As of Monday 23 November the districts of Hamm and Pulvermühle will be added to the already existing 30 km/h speed zones across the rest of the capital.
With the exception of the main trunk roads in the state network, where the maximum speed limit will remain at 50 km/h, all streets in both districts will be included in the 30 km/h zone, with the appropriate facilities, traffic signs and road markings. It should be noted that the section along the school to Rue de Hamm is already regulated as a 30 km/h zone.
Patrick Goldschmidt, alderman responsible for mobility, is delighted: "This measure, which has already proved its worth in other parts of the city, is in line with the alderman's desire to ease traffic in residential areas and to work towards a better quality of life for residents."
The introduction of the 30 km/h speed limit ensures greater safety for the most vulnerable road users, such as pedestrians, cyclists and children, and also for motorists themselves, who are therefore more aware of the need to live together with the various road users.
At 30 km/h, the stopping distance is halved compared with a speed of 50 km/h, and the driver's field of vision is widened.
