"Safe cycle routes – Now!" This is the title of Dave Durner weibelt in the current magazine of the Pro bike in the Canton of Zurich for the cycle routes Initiative, the initiative Committee, he sits on the 17. May will be voted on in the city of Zurich.
it Is believed the Initiative, he can work from July to implementation. Then Durner is the management of Pro Velo, and switches to the city. He occupied one of the six new Bodies in the Velofachstelle, who has spoken of the municipal Council in December, against the will of the city Council. This Durner announced in an Interview with the newspaper "P. S.".
For the influential lobby organization have the effect of" it's a turning point. The trained chef and nutrition consultant has held since December 2000, first the Co-direction, then the direction of Pro Velo. Asked he had been by the then Board member and current city Council member Daniel Leupi (Grüne).
At the specialist unit in the Department for transport, his party colleague and councillor Karin Rykart (Green) receives Durner, the new position of the project Manager Velos security. He was looking forward to edit the theme of Cycling from a different perspective, "and, of course, to be able to concretely make a difference," as he says in the "P. S.".
Durner has always been a critical companion to the urban Velopolitik. So he wrote in a Blog, the person responsible for the Veloinfrastruktur were "unable and unwilling". In spite of the new professional prospect he is: "I stand by today." There is simply "too many who think they made it well. In the process, they would have no idea (...) how good Veloinfrastruktur look". For Durner there are in the city, so much to do.
On his future supervisors Karin Rykart and civil engineering, head of Richard Wolff (AL) is he tips, of who you are: "It would take someone like Ursula Wyss in Bern, which was as a SP-Executive member of a conflict, carried on, and by the state." Durner regretted in the "P. S." that Pro Velo in the case of the former civil engineering Department head Ruth Genner (Green) "for too long, much too nice," had been: "We would have to demand something more."
SVP-criticism: patronage politics
Durners employment-criticism causes. In the NZZ, Stephan Iten, SVP district Council and President of the transport Committee, commented ironically: "That fits exactly." You've already said in December that the left majority on the Council of wool with the increase in jobs to their own clientele. Iten holds Durner for preloaded and for a, which stands for maximum demands, and in addition to the car traffic, the public TRANSPORT in favour of bicycles wool at a disadvantage.
FDP transport policy Andreas Egli sees the employment Durners in the city is less critical. This is an "absolute Velolobbyist", but also one who was "in contrast to some municipal councils" factual arguments against accessible. (pu)
