The main problem for car drivers will probably be the closure of the B456 between the junction with the L3003 (the exit to Oberstedten) and the crossroads in Dornholzhausen.  This section is due to be closed from Friday, 11th July until Sunday, 20th July, 2014.

Not only may local residents expect some noise, as the work will continue at night and the weekends, but there is a local festival (“Kerb”) taking placed in Oberstedten with additional road closures to be expected there as well. [Read more…]

B455 closed due to left luggage

The end of the B455 at the junction with the A661 was closed on Monday, 23rd September, 2013, when a suitcase and an 11kg gas cylinder were found on the side of the road.

Police closed off the area, the Red Cross were put on standby and the residents living close by were informed.

An inspection of the items found them not to be dangerours and detectives took the decision to re-open the road around three hours later.

It is believed that the items had been left by a white transporter with a Polish number plate around 10am that had stopped to deal with a tyre problem.  Police believe that they may have been left behind by mistake.  Witnesses are asked to call Bad Homburg police station on 06172 1200.
