Europe’s Grass-Lined Green Railways (16 pics)

Pics | 4 Feb, 2009 | Views: 57839 |  +110   |  


Although it’s certainly not a new idea to combine landscaping with public transportation, we love the sight of these European trams gliding along on beds of grass.
From Barcelona to the Czech Republic, Frankfurt, St-Etienne and Strasbourg, these public transit greenways are showing the potential of incorporating landscaping into good urban design.

Hardly GREEN when you have to MOW the parkway.

Meat....mowing is more green than pavement repairs....especially when we all switch to electric lawn mowers, and solar power....which is the only logical solution to the energy problems...I like it

how about planting native grasses that support wildlife rather than a non-native grass monoculture?

Well here is the deal. The reason they do not need fences or gates is the simple fact that children in other countries are a lot more educated in safety and common sense. So they do not need to waste money on so called "Safety barriers" such as that. The simple fact is; their children are not stupid enough to play in a place where NO ONE ELSE IS PLAYING, for obvious reasons. I'm sure there are a few who get injured or die, but that is just natural selection via man's ingenuity. Something I believe, as an American, the good ol' US of A needs. Make room for the educated ones, or at least get everyone's frame of mind out of "Need a Quick Fix" to "prevent it from happening in the first place."

I'm sure the caring, attentive, responsible parents would also have a hand in the fact that they have no barriers. Also something other countries out number the US by at least 60% or so.

Overall I believe that planting grass on railway systems is a good idea, regardless of the type of grass. Any planted grass is better, and more aesthetic, than gravel. Oh and for peoples information, for every 200 sq. ft. of grass that is mowed, taking in to account the time between mowing, takes care of about three lawnmowers worth of emissions. so next time you want to argue how green this idea is; do the math before you argue. Though if your from the US, I understand completely and sympathize. This gov. does not spend much on education.

I think that these small details make living in cities much nicer, and make people more aware of what they are missing
