  • Canton of Zurich Zurich

The Swiss highway 52, also known as Forch Forch street or highway called leads, two lanes ( section Zumikon, Egg, Esslingen to Gossau lane ) and directionally from Zurich on the Forch the Zurich Oberland. It begins at Zurich - Hirslanden as a two-lane country road and down Zumikon is it posted as a motorway. Shortly before Hinwil is about the so-called centrifugal Betzholz connection to the A53 in the direction of Rapperswil.

On the direction not originally separate A52 occurred repeatedly severe traffic accidents. Beginning of November 2004 was therefore approved by the Zurich Cantonal Government a project for the direction of separation of Forch Forch between road and Egg. The direction separation was performed with crash barriers and to improve road safety on the Forch motorway. The physical separation of driving directions minimizes the risk of head-on collisions.

For the A 52 is not a toll sticker.
