Cable theft at the swimming pool building site

Electricty cable worth around €12,000 was taken at some point during last weekend from the building site at the swimming pool.

The thieves opened the building site fence to gain access to the grounds, where they took 77m of loose cable and removed a further 237m of cable that had already been installed.

Police believe they must have transported the cable in a motor vehicle or a trailer.


Building site at Kupferhammer

This photo shows why the U3 line in Oberursel had to be partially closed last week.  The factory buildings at the “Kupferhammer” were being demolished and part of the system that carries the overhead lines was fixed to one of the walls.

The factory, which even had its own siding from the days when goods were transported on the line (tram line 24), was known as the “Lumpensortieranstalt Berger” and later as the “Jandorf-Fabrik”.
