Now the grooves in barnfels are supposed to fix it again

Now the grooves in barnfels are supposed to fix it again

At the most recent meeting of the obertrubach municipal council, the proposal to establish a play area in the barnfelser burgstrabe was discussed in detail. A written application was submitted, which five residents had signed. Up to now, there have been six very pronounced cross gutters built into the road, which were to be removed in the course of reconstruction work. Three are already gone.

With this, residents feared, traffic could speed up unacceptably. According to the municipality, however, the redesignation as a playground requires that the recreational character of the area prevails. This could happen, for example, with plant drugs. These had to be arranged so that motorists on the road could not travel faster than walking speed.

A uniform traffic surface without distinction between driving area and sidewalk would also be characteristic. But the relatively narrow street doesn't allow for that in terms of space. The city council therefore rejected the request.

"She’s a strong opponent, with no real weak ones. She doesn’t give her opponent much," said mary joe fernandez as an expert for the TV channel ESPN. The former world-class player had called kerber a "giant killer" after her quarterfinal victory over olympic champion serena williams, who had previously been unbeaten in 19 matches.

Railroad line remains closed for seven weeks

51.5 million guilders, ten years to build – it was a mammoth task that the royal bavarian state railroads decided to undertake in 1841: a rail line between lindau and hof, divided into three sections. The northern section alone, from nurnberg to hof and on to the saxon border, had a length of 203 kilometers, and the opening ceremony took place 160 years ago, on the 25th of june. August 1848, the birthday of king ludwig I. From bavaria. He also gave the line its name: ludwig-sud-north railroad.

Evidence of those days still exists today, even in front of our house. The tilting trains of the railroad and also of the "agilis" still travel the two sandstone bridges in the main meadows between kulmbach and mainleus. The ravages of time have not only gnawed at the buildings, they have literally chewed on them. This is why DB netz AG is planning a comprehensive refurbishment this summer.

Roadway slab made of reinforced concrete

The press office of the bahn AG in munich says that this is to be done in consultation with the monument protection authorities. The vaults of the sandstone bridges will therefore be preserved and each will be given a new reinforced concrete roadway slab, which will be attached to the existing structure with micropiles. The rails will be mounted on it. According to information from the railroad, the cost of the renovation will be around 3.5 million euros. In the meantime, the first clearing work has begun so that the construction vehicles can reach the bridges.
