Revitalisation of the Sihl river basin near the Zurich South motorway interchange

Project overview

The Zurich South motorway interchange is situated in an important local recreation area. As compensation for this intervention in nature and the natural landscape, the river basin of the Sihl river has been redeveloped over a length of 850 metres into a more natural environment, and flood protection measures have been improved. The project fulfils water construction requirements and aspects relating to landscape design and biology alike.
