The Seegasse/Siemens-Nixdorf-Steg link closes a key gap in Vienna’s cycle way network. In case of slow traffic, pileups are common in Seegasse at the level of Rossauer Lände. Heavy traffic from Spittelauer Lände/Friedensbrücke is followed by a phase with much less or even no traffic. In the past, the traffic lights were still red for pedestrians and cyclists at this moment, motivating many to cross the street during the red phase. The new traffic signal control now allots green phases ’cut’ from car traffic to the green phases for pedestrians and cyclists.
