Roadworks sign - ©Can Stock Photo Inc. / RedKoalaThe tunnel on the B455 between Oberursel-Nord and Oberursel-Hohemark will be closed to allow for the lights to be replaced on two nights next week.

On the 14th/15th and 15th/16th April the work will take place between 8pm and 5am.

Traffic from Kronberg or Königstein heading towards the A661 will be diverted along the Hohemarkstraße.  Traffic heading towards those towns will be diverted along the Dornbachstraße.

Reduced U-Bahn service on Sunday

Work on the tracks in the U-Bahn tunnel in Frankfurt will mean a reduced service running on Sunday, 23rd February, 2014.

The lines U1 and U2 will terminate at “Hügelstraße” from where buses will continue along the route to the “Südbahnhof”.  Most U3 and U8 trains will terminate at “Heddernheim”.

The S-Bahn S5 provides an alternative way to get to Frankfurt from Oberursel.

The S-Bahn S5 provides an alternative way to get to Frankfurt, but it should also be noted that a number of other U-Bahn lines and trams will not be running in the West End of the city for part of the day due to the demolition of one of the tower blocks.

Collision on the B455

A head-on collision took place on the B455 between the tunnel and the exit “Hohemark” last Thursday (31st January, 2013).

According to the the police report into the crash, a 55-year-old driver travelling from towards Königstein in a Renault crossed over onto the other side of the road and hit a Peugeot and a Porsche Cayenne.  The reason for this is as yet unknown.  Both he and the driver of the Porsche were trapped in their vehicles and had to be freed by the fire brigade.  All three drivers were injured.

The road was closed to allow the vehicles to be removed, the damage is estimated to be at least €100,000.

Disruptions to Sunday and nighttime S-Bahn travel in Frankfurt

An S-Bahn train leaving the station in OberurselBetween 17th July and 10th August (2012) maintenance work is being carried out in the railway tunnel in Frankfurt through which the S-Bahn trains run.  The S5 from Oberursel to Frankfurt is one of the lines affected.

As a result Sunday services and those after around 11.30pm on other days will not be taking the normal route.  Instead they will be diverted in Frankfurt-Rödelheim, missing out the stations “West”, “Messe” and “Galluswarte”, and terminating at Frankfurt Hauptbahnhof on the main level rather than the usual underground platforms.

A number of S-Bahn trains will continue to run through the tunnel, although these services will be limited.

To get to Frankfurt from Oberursel during this time, it will probably make more sense to use the U-Bahn (U3) and change in Frankfurt as necessary.
