From a hectic transit hub to a relaxed center with pleasant urban climate

Dietikon is the town in the heart of the Limmattalstadt (Limmat Valley City) and its regional center. The Dietikon railway station serves as a major arrival and transfer point with an urban character. The realization of the Limmattalbahn (Limmat Valley Railway) and the city boulevard will give this regional center an additional urban value, however, it will also make it denser and narrower.

The new development of the area around the railway station allows for a reinterpretation of the city center. The current central bus-stop will be divided into two separate islands so that there will no longer be any need for through-traffic in front of the station. The station square will be streamlined and form the beginning of a new urban axis running from Zürcherstrasse directly to the building of the railway station. A spacious and generously proportioned tree canopy will characterize this area and offer a new urban attraction. The new developments, along the railway tracks, will create an urban revival as far as Ueberlandstrasse. Together with the improvement of the old village center, located around The Krone Dietikon, a new central area will be established with high density of uses and experiences.

Embedded between the blue-green waters of the Limmat and Reppisch rivers, the center will be transformed into a new urban biotope combining a variety of scales and uses. The Bahnhofplatz will form the new center of Dietikon characterized as a place of arrival and rest with plenty of trees and shade. The qualities of this new urban landscape will become a distinguishing symbol in the Limmat valley.
