In the north and south of Lucerne the laws of the agglomeration prevail, as indeed they do elsewhere. Disparate elements stand arbitrarily beside each other: motorway feeders beside bargain centres, areas of private houses next to shopping centres, traditional businesses beside smart new buildings. The contrasts are harsh, the change is abrupt, formerly im portant village roads end at the motorway noise protection wall.
