Mayor franz buttner (ABB/interessengemeinschaft) had announced the good news in the town council. Ramsthal is quasi the laughing third, because the extension of the circle road KG 13 between garitz and wittershausen is delayed. Therefore, funds are available in the short term to implement the mabnahme in ramsthal.
"Planning by the engineering firm hahn und kollegen (bad kissingen) is running at high pressure", says dobler. Until 1. September they must be submitted to the government of lower franconia in order to receive state subsidies. If all goes well, according to dobler, the construction machines will be able to start up in may of next year. Before the end of the year the acceptance could be completed.
The road will be built between the ramsthal exit in the direction of ebenhausen and about 250 meters past the old ramsthal sports field. Juergen dobler estimates the cost of building the tram at 800,000 euros. The sharp curve coming from ebenhausen shortly before the entrance to ramsthal will also be significantly softened as a result of the reduction in the number of lanes. This area will be "significantly safer" thanks to a coarser curve radius and a steeper cross slope, says dobler.
Core stuck traffic circle
The centerpiece, however, will be a traffic circle at the intersection of KG 4 and KG 6 in the direction of the B 286 and the landfill site at the height of the old sports field.This will alleviate another focus of accidents. The aim was actually to change the main direction of travel and to give KG 6 the right of way over KG 4 coming from the direction of ebenhausen. This, however, had led to a significant change in the course of the route.
The traffic circle, on the other hand, is considered a good solution, not least because it creates a calmer area. This is important with regard to the bike path network. Cyclists have to cross the road here.
A cycle path is also to be built from the exit of the town to the exit at haskenstein.
