Signing of the new 3Land planning agreement
The cooperation between the neighboring cities of Basel, Weil am Rhein and Huningue, which has been going on for more than ten years, already shows visible results: Between Huningue and Basel, a continuous Rhine riverbank path has been created. It is equally popular as a commuter route and as a promenade during leisure time. With the expansion of the Rhine Park in Weil am Rhein and the redesigned riverbank areas in Huningue, new open spaces were created directly on the water on both sides of the Three-Country Bridge. They offer a variety of opportunities for play, sports and recreation and will be further enlarged in future construction phases. In this way, the 3Land idea is turning into a tangible benefit for the population.
On behalf of the eight partners involved, Basel Cantonal Councilor Esther Keller, the Mayor of Huningue and President of Saint-Louis Agglomération, Jean-Marc Deichtmann, and the Mayor of Weil am Rhein, Wolfgang Dietz, signed a trinational planning agreement at the Dreiländereck today. It sets out the next steps and a joint budget up to the end of 2025. The main topics are mobility, open space and nature conservation, spatial planning and urban development.
