Changes to the Bärenkreuzung roadworks

Roadworks sign - ©Can Stock Photo Inc. / RedKoalaWork on the Bärenkreuzung in the centre of Oberursel started on Monday last week.

Since then, some modifications to the flow of traffic have been made.

It is no longer possible to travel from the Oberhöchstadter Straße across the crossing into the Liebfrauenstraße.

Additional traffic lights have been placed in the Lindenstraße to assist pedestrians.

The one-way system in the Austraße has been reversed so that traffic from the Aumühlenstraße can travel along it back towards the Oberhöchstadter Straße and into the Stadthalle car park.

Work on Bärenkreuzung to start

Roadworks sign - ©Can Stock Photo Inc. / RedKoalaWork on the Bärenkreuzung in the centre of Oberursel is to start on Monday, 18th November, 2013.

The crossing is the junction of the Adenauerallee with the Liebfrauenstraße, Oberhöchstadter Straße and Vorstadt and is one of the major road junctions in the town.

Whilst the road works take place, the town is keen to stress that the shops are still easy to get to, although pedestrians may have to take small detour to get to them.

From the town council: Swimming, Sewage, the Station, and the Saga of the Bärenkreuzung

The last meeting of the town council in Oberursel was a long, drawn out affair, which even prompted Mayor Hans-Georg Brum to refer to part of the debate as a “Gebetsmühle” – literally a “prayer wheel”, ie. a discussion that was taking a long time and going round in circles.

It was also the point in the council year for treasurer Thorsten Schorr to make his annual budget speech, the debate on which was deferred to a later date after the Bürgerversammlung about the proposed savings.

Part of that budget may have played a role in the OBG asking what the pre-requisites are for town employees taking on committee roles in charities such as the Förderverein Taunabad during their work time and whether this was not something that the town was doing voluntarily and hence should possibly be reduced or stopped altogether under the budget constraints.
