Ground-breaking ceremony for second stage of Urdorf Schäflibach flood protection
The ground-breaking ceremony for the implementation of flood protection measures on the Schäflibach took place in the municipality of Urdorf on 19 May 2021. The plan calls for a slight widening of the brook's bed; in addition, Bach Strasse, the road that runs parallel to the brook, will be raised, the culvert under Muulaffe Square (Muulaffeplatz) will be enlarged, and new bridges will be constructed. At the same time, the Urdorf community centre is getting an upgrade, as the heavily-frequented Muulaffe Square is being redesigned. The Schäflibach experience will be enhanced by a new access path to the brook, raised walls along the banks of the brook for seating, and shady groves of trees.
