"We want to get started now", declared mayor michael ziegler (CSU) on thursday (9 a.M.). February) in robstadt to the participants at an extraordinary meeting of the town council, which was concerned exclusively with the upcoming village renewal vote. The entire length of the town's thoroughfare will get a new look, but residents will have to live with a construction site until the end of 2013.
For years, the first village renewal survey has been in preparation in robstadt, and many citizens have contributed suggestions and proposals to the conception. The first phase will also be the roughest construction phase. After all, it was clear from the very beginning that the approximately 650-meter-long frankenstrabe was to be expanded and designed in one section. This means that sewers and water pipes will be inspected and rehabilitated where necessary, 57 house connection valves will have to be replaced, and the surface sewer to the main will be upgraded to a coarser dimension to prevent backups during heavy rainfall.
Mayor ziegler explained that in the run-up to the work, talks were also held with telekom. There will be no fiber-optic cable for robstadt for the time being, but the city will lay an empty pipe in the street. The DSL supply will nevertheless improve, because the signal will be strengthened at the handover from the fiber optic cable to the copper cable in robstadt. The above-ground power lines will also be laid underground, and the gas supply company gasuf will ask homeowners if there is any new interest in gas connections.
Peter ruck, the new owner of the werner technical office, and gunther hermsen, construction manager of the robstadt mabnahme, explained the construction schedule. The canal has to be renewed in the entire frankenstrabe, also some sidestranges are part of the construction scope. Hermsen hopes to be able to start work at the beginning of march, first with the relief channel from the main to the local through road.
Around the middle of april, things got "serious" in the village. By the end of june, the construction site should have reached the center of the town, and by the end of august, the civil engineering work in the entire frankenstrabe should be completed. The construction of the road will be tendered so that it can begin in early september. Nevertheless, the construction of the trench with the design of side areas, footpaths and parking lots will take up the entire year 2013. The aim is to enable the residents to access their properties as continuously as possible. "But of course it can be necessary that you have to park your car somewhere else for a few days", according to mayor michael ziegler.
Also robstadt will always be reachable from the B26 via one of the two entrances of frankenstrabe, the small entrance at the church should not be used as an "alternative route" be used.
Some questions were addressed to the planners. A hobby gardener wanted to know whether the allotment gardens at the entrance to the village had been sacrificed to the ten parking spaces planned for the site. He could be reassured, only half a meter of the garden area was needed to realize this parking space, said peter ruck. Another burgher said that now would be the best opportunity to provide the B26 coming from eltmann with a turn lane. Due to the fact that turning vehicles also have to take the main valley cycle path into account, dangerous situations occur time and again, either due to excessive braking on the main road, or then in the junction area with the cyclists. Mayor michael ziegler agreed to contact the road construction office, because the city can not rebuild the federal road.
Submitting applications in good time
As chairman of the community of participants, raimund wendel presented the possibilities of demands for private acceptance. Village renewal subsidies are now available for new windows, courtyard gates, the design of courtyard space to suit the village and, more recently, even for new buildings that are in keeping with the local image. The rates are between ten and 30 percent, depending on the amount of the purchase, with a maximum of 30,000 euros per property. Wendel stressed that in any case the application must be made before construction begins. Advice from the village renewal planners could also be sought if, for example, people were not sure how to go about converting the barn to residential use. Sw
