Date determined, June 4: To close Oslo’s city center for car traffic
Saturday 2 June 2018
Monday, there will be a full stop for passing through Oslo city center.
Now it becomes even more difficult to drive a car in the city center streets of Oslo. From Monday, the city council will introduce its brand new driving pattern, as mentioned in the newspaper Nettavisen earlier in May. The goal is to reduce driving and driving through the center.
The date has recently been decided, and now they are setting up signs for the new driving pattern. The point is to close Fridtjof Nansen’s space in front of the town hall for all car traffic, with the exception of goods delivery to the companies on the spot.
“Finally, we get a new car-free living room in the middle of the city. It’s amazing to think that this place was full of parking spaces. It is much better that this space is filled with seating, flowers, outdoor seating and city life, says City Council for Urban Development, Hanna E. Marcussen (MDG) The Green Party.
On Monday, Rådhusgata is also closed for crossing the Christiania square, with the exception of bus and coach buses that can cross the square.
My comment on this is:
The microparty MGD (The Green Party) has gained too much power. By 2015 they received an 8.1% support. Now they really decide too much and ruin the city. We have a parliamentary system that has expired today. It’s not just the city council that struggles with microparties. Our parliament has the same problem. Those who have a car are punished with road tolls and other charges, now the center of Oslo will be closed to them. This is not 2018 we live in clearly!
