A tram line crosses a sizeable pedestrian zone in the city centre of Zurich. This zone has an above-average count of pedestrians during the peak hours, which time and again results in complaints and near-accidents. The city of Zurich contracted SWISSTRAFFIC to perform a road safety analysis.
Video analysis of the prevailing traffic conditions (for the pedestrians and the tram line) during the peak hours and peak days of the week
Conflict analysis between the pedestrians and tram line at intersections
Determination of conflict frequencies and localisation of the conflicts; definition of the various conflict types
Formulation of plausible action measures based on the results of the previously conducted conflict analysis; evaluation of the pros and cons of the various measures, and broad cost estimates of these measures
