Water supply renewal means diversions and changes to bus route

The water mains at the northern end of Oberursel is due to be overhauled in the coming weeks, resulting in diversions and a change to one of the bus routes.

Starting on Tuesday, 29th March, 2016 traffic travelling out of the town along the Hohemarkstraße will be diverted along the residential road “Im Rosengärtchen” where the right-of-way will be changed at places.  Traffic entering the town will remain on the Hohemarkstraße.  Additional roadworks will be in the road “An der Waldlust” where it crosses the Altkönigstraße.

The bus route 42 travelling from the cemetery towards “Weißkirchen-Ost” will use Hohemarkstraße instead of “Im Rosengärtchen”, with a replacement bus stop opposite the U-Bahn stop “Rosengärtchen”.  The route in the other direction is not affected.

The work is expected to be completed by Friday, 22nd April, 2016.
