In order to secure the supply of drinking water in Hamburg, its main pipeline in the Elbchaussee must be refurbished. This opportunity can be used to make the Elbchaussee’s roads safer and more comfortable: for better shared usage, an efficient infrastructure, improvements for bicycle traffic and sustainable mobility.

The Landesbetrieb Straßen, Brücken und Gewässer (LSBG) is carrying out a multi-stage participation process – the “Elbchausee Dialogue” – to involve in the planning process those citizens of Hamburg that are directly and indirectly affected by the renovation.

For the first time, the LSBG invites a random sample of citizens of Hamburg drawn by lot to take part in planning workshops. The aim is to achieve more representativeness in the participation process.

The nexus Institute designs and conducts the random selection of 40 citizens for each of the two workshops as part of the “Elbchaussee Dialogue”.
