Construction sites in Bensberg and Rösrath, A3 becomes single lane

Here you will find an overview of the construction siten, which cause traffic obstructions in the Rheinisch-Bergisch district.

Bergisch Gladbach: City tunnel closed from Thursday onwards

After the annual maintenance a few weeks ago, there will be another closure in the City Tunnel from Thursday, September 8th to Friday, September 9th. This was announced by the city administration. This was necessary because of repair work on the fire alarm system. The work was due to accidental damage, according to a spokesman for the city administration.

In the direction of Jakobstraße, the tunnel will be closed from Thursday 8 a.m. to Friday 5 p.m. The lane in the direction of Gohrsmühle will be diverted to the oncoming lane for traffic on Thursday, September 8th. The actual lane will be maintained on Friday, September 9th.

Corresponding diversions are signposted for the duration of the work, according to the city. (wg)

Bensberg: Schloßstraße becomes a construction site

Schloßstraße in Bensberg will become a construction site from Monday, August 29th. The energy supplier Rhein-Energie is laying and renewing electricity and gas lines before the actual construction work to modernize the commercial street begins in early 2023.

In addition, empty pipes are laid that will be used at a later date for the fiber optic expansion. In this way, it will be ensured that the road does not have to be torn up again at a later date, the city administration announced. Rhein-Energie is carrying out the work in front of house numbers 1 to 16. They last about ten to twelve weeks.

Until then, Schlossstraße is only passable as a one-way street in the direction of Nikolausstraße. The entrance to the section of Schlossstrasse affected by the construction work is blocked from Nikolausstrasse. There will also be no parking spaces on the affected side of the street for the duration of the construction work. The city announced that there is a remaining walkway for pedestrians. (ub)

Bensberger Straße in Rösrath blocked on one side

From August 29th, the mixed water sewer in Bensberger Straße between the Am Sommerberg junction and the parking lot of the Altvolberger Hof in Forsbach will be renewed, the Stadtwerke Rösrath announced. During the entire construction work, which is estimated to take around five months, Bensberger Strasse will have to be closed on one side. Traffic is controlled by traffic lights. During the construction project, the mixed water sewer will be expanded and the sewer, which partly runs over private property, will be relocated to a public route. The existing drinking water pipe will also be renewed. (yer)

Scherfbachtalstrasse is blocked on one side

In Odenthal, the Scherfbachtalstraße (L 296) will be closed on one side on Thursday, August 25, between Höffe and Klasmühle. Only one lane can be used on this day between 7 a.m. and probably 6 p.m. During this time, traffic will be regulated with construction site lights and alternately directed via the remaining lane. This can lead to traffic jams. The municipal administration recommends avoiding the Scherfbachtalstraße on this day if possible. The construction site remains passable for pedestrians.

Wupsi failures due to Corona and construction sites

In the Wupsi line operation, there is currently an increasing number of cancellations on individual lines due to short-term staff shortages. As the transport company reports, this is due to the increase in corona diseases. As a result, it is currently not possible to fully staff all services. The situation will be exacerbated by the holiday season.

The large-scale diversions due to the large number of construction sites in the service area also meant additional effort in driving operations. Exactly which lines are affected can only be decided at short notice. The city of Leverkusen is particularly affected. The Wupsi asks its customers to find out more about the digital displays at the stops, the wupsiApp or the timetable information or on the Internet. Other transport companies are also suffering from the consequences of the increasing number of corona cases.
