Road closures and railway services

Roadworks sign - ©Can Stock Photo Inc. / RedKoalaA number of roadworks and a reduction in railway services is set to affect Oberursel and the surrounding area in the coming weeks.

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…]

B456 roadworks extended

The work on the B456 bridge across the L3003 (Niederstedter Straße) should have been completed by now, but has been extended until 20th December, 2013.

The contraflow system on the bridge and traffic lights below will remain in place for now.

B456 bridge repairs to take place

Roadworks sign - ©Can Stock Photo Inc. / RedKoalaThis week work will begin on renewing the B456 bridge near the Niederstedter Weg (the road between Oberursel and Dornholzhausen) which is expected to take until mid-October.

During this time traffic turning off the B456 onto the L3003 will be regulated by traffic lights which may cause some delays.

One possible detour to avoid the area would be via the Kanonenstraße (L3004), however this too will be closed at times between 20th and 23rd August, 2013, to allow for tree felling to take place.

Drunk Driver landed in roadside ditch

A 43-year-old woman from the Odenwaldkreis was driving along the B456 towards Bad Homburg in her Kia Picanta last Sunday evening (28th April, 2013).  On leaving the road at the Oberstedten exit to join the L3003 the car slid of the road and landed in the roadside ditch.

Police discovered that the same person had previously caused an accident on the motorway near Offenbacher Kreuz and had damaged the crash barrier in the process.  They report that she was under the influence of a considerable amount of alcohol and after taking a blood sample her driving license was confiscated.

The damage is estimated at €3,500.

L3003 between Oberstedten and Bad Homburg partially closed

The L3003 (“Südring”) between Oberstedten and Bad Homburg will be partially closed at places between Monday 25th February and Thursday 28th February, 2013, to allow work to be carried out on the trees.

The closures will be 9.30am until 5.30pm on Monday and 8.30am until 5pm on the other days.

During this time only one side of the road will be available to motorists.
