Nyon against A1 third lane

The town of Nyon has come out against the plans to widen the A1 autoroute between it and Geneva.

Last month parliament gave the go ahead to build a third lane on the road in an effort to reduce congestion.

But Stéphanie Schmutz from the municipal council argues that a third lane won't help congestion and will only lead to more traffic on the road – increasing pollution and leading to more cars in the town.

She also points out that there’s no allocation for increased cycle lanes or public transport.
