Accident in Schulstrasse damaged water pipe

Police in Oberursel were called to the Schulstraße at 23:17 on Tuesday, 16th January, 2018 after reports of a “fountain” following a road traffic accident.

Apparently a vehicle hit a temporary pipe on the pavement that was carrying water to a nearby building site.  The driver left the scene of the accident without dealing with the damage, which is estimated to be at around several hundred Euros.

Witnesses reported the pipe had been broken, leaving water spurting several metres up into the air.  This was still the case when police arrived.

They were unable to stop the flow, and called for someone from the local waterworks (Stadtwerke) to attend, who subsequently turned off the water to the whole street.

Anyone with information as to who caused the accident is asked to call police in Oberursel on 06171 62400.

Swimming pool to remain closed for two more days

The outdoor swimming pool in Oberursel will be closed on Wednesday 9th and Thursday 10th July, 2014 to allow for damage to pool to be repaired.

The damage was due to be repaired on Tuesday, but a large crack was discovered in the concrete which is allowing water to escape and needs sealing.  One of the pipes also needs replacing.

The pool is due to re-open on Friday.

The town administration and maintenance department (BSO) advise in their warning that this service has not been initiated by them and recipients of such calls should not respond to the demands being made.
