Against the background of the debate about the further construction of the motorway connection in Königsdorf, the CDU local association invites you to a virtual community gathering. It starts on Tuesday, February 2, at 7 p.m. on the Internet platform Zoom. The focus should be on the traffic concept and the local infrastructure, and all citizens can participate.
The dispute over the motorway connection will certainly also play a role. As reported, the Greens had criticized the investment of a further seven million euros in the extension of the junction. The old expansion plans are outdated, the motorway connection will generate additional traffic. “We demand that the car-oriented transport policy comes to the test,” says Miriam Erbacher, parliamentary group leader of Bündnis 90 / Die Grünen. She suggests that the Königsdorfer local passage, Aachener Straße, should instead be relieved of traffic with gate lights at the entrances to the town.
CDU Königsdorf speaks of “green traffic chaos”
This caused horror at the CDU Königsdorf. She speaks of “green traffic chaos”. The motorway connection has already been partially completed. It will contribute to a significant reduction in traffic on the through traffic on Aachener Straße, because traffic in the direction of Cologne can flow off the motorway before Königsdorf. “This not only leads to an enormous reduction in noise and exhaust fumes for the people of Königsdorf, but we would also like to strengthen Aachener Strasse for bicycle and footpath traffic, incorporate the beautified market square and align traffic to the mobility hub at the train station,” says Stefan Hoss, who Chairwoman of the CDU Königsdorf.
Criticism also comes from the SPD: “For years, the Frechen council groups have put a lot of pressure on the state government to promote the Königsdorf motorway connection,” says parliamentary group leader Hans Günter Eilenberger. The project has gone through all planning stages in the past few years, it is already under construction and met with broad approval in Königsdorf. Eilenberger: “Installing gate lights on Aachener Straße would mean reducing traffic in Königsdorf and shifting the traffic jam to the Kerpener or Bergheimer urban area.”
The Königsdorf CDU does not believe in the gate lights either: “We do not want to let the through traffic coming from Horrem flow through the town with a time delay, but rather reduce and dismantle it entirely,” says Hoss.
