Transport and open space development above the tunnel of the south-western ring road, including an assessment of various tunnel alternatives and their impact on the open space.
The redevelopment of Munich’s ring road and the addition of road tunnels allowed public space that had been occupied by transport infrastructure to be reclaimed: low-key roads and car parking spaces flank a central walkway that resembles a park, giving priority to vegetation and people and providing a space for urban life with aesthetically designed lighting, surfaces and street furniture.
