Klagenfurt unveils traffic concept
Monday, 29 January 2007
by Christian Rosenzopf

e-mailPrint

The city of Klagenfurt has unveiled new transport plans to ease supporters' passage to, and from, the Wörthersee Stadium at UEFA EURO 2008™.

Careful consideration
With the state capital of Austria's Carinthia region hosting three games at the finals, the local authorities have been working for more than a year to devise a system to enable fans to travel in, and out, of the city with minimal inconvenience. Klagenfurt mayor Harald Scheucher and deputies Walter Zwick and Ewald Wiedenbauer have now presented the preliminary plans.

Shuttle buses
Under the proposal, a network of shuttle buses will link the railway station and airport to the stadium ensuring supporters can reach the venue easily, while the Austrian rail service is in negotiations with the city about opening an additional rail platform near the stadium. Parking facilities around the town will be incorporated into the plans in order to minimise traffic near the ground on matchdays. Fans with cars will be encouraged to park away from the stadium with further shuttle bus services linking the network of car parks to the arena.

Widened road
With massive interest expected for the finals, the city authorities are proposing to widen the main road to the south of the stadium, the Südring, to achieve four lanes of traffic, with one lane being set aside for VIPs and media representatives on matchdays. Supporters travelling by coach will also be catered for with additional bus parking spaces being planned around the ground. "We will be investing more than €5m just to make the necessary infrastructure measures," said Wiedenbauer.

Flexible plans
The authorities insist their proposals are flexible and can easily be adjusted in light of the draw for the tournament, which will take place on 2 December 2007. "Once we know which teams will be playing in Klagenfurt, we will have a better idea about the volume of traffic we will be dealing with and what will be needed," said Anulf Rainer, head of the local UEFA EURO 2008™ organising committee. "We have presented our overall concept to show the public we are thinking carefully about transport and infrastructure issues."

Fan zone
Klagenfurt's plans to erect their fan zone in the grounds of the Klagenfurt Convention Centre are well advanced. "The fan zone will serve as a sort of connection between the EURO arena and the city centre, and if we don't have good luck with the weather, we'll be able to provide shelter inside the Convention Centre," said Rainer, who is anticipating more than 10,000 visitors to the fan zone on matchdays.

Pretty sweet. Although the interior with just a single ring looks a bit dull.

Maybe there won't be any shadows at all. At least that's the case in Berlin (and I suppose in some other German stadiums although I haven't really payed any attention to that).

The Wörtherseestadion in Klagenfurt will be opened with the first match of a 4-nations tournament.
Austria will play japan, while, on the same day Switzerland will meet Chile in Vienna. Four days later, Klagenfurt will host Switzerland-Japan and Austria will challenge the Chileans in Vienna.

None unfortunately, as of yet.

I believe that not TOO much will have changed, though.
