Since august of last year, canal construction work has been underway between amtsgerichtskreuzung and the city’s parish church. An asphalt crew has been on the job since yesterday. Until friday, 18. October, it is to rebuild the trench and sidewalk surface in von-hessingstrabe and the adjacent parts of salinenstrabe and maxstrabe. For this time the concerned area is closed for the traffic.
The city bus lines impeded by the full closure – i.E. All lines that travel from berliner platz in the direction of garitz – are being diverted through the fubganger zone (ludwigstrabe). This is causing resentment among cab drivers in bad kissingen, who are not allowed to use this detour. A driver points out that they had to take detours of up to 20 minutes. For the customer, the cost of the trip increased from six to twelve euros.
