Wiesenthau: barriers replace flashing lights

Wiesenthau: barriers replace flashing lights

Time and again there have been crashes at the wiesenthau railroad crossing. In order to avoid future collisions between motorists and the wiesenttalbahn train, the 1957 flashing light system is now being replaced by railroad barriers. This was confirmed by a spokesman for DB-netz-AG when asked.
The removal had been planned for a long time: as early as the end of 2015, representatives of the railroad and the road construction office had agreed that a railroad barrier could provide more safety here. The federal railway authority was responsible for the approval process. Whether a rail barrier is installed depends on the type of line (main or branch line) and the speed of the trains.
Representatives of the police, the federal railroad office, the railroad, and the district of forchheim, or the free state, checked whether the security was adequate for the local conditions.

Bringing technology up to speed

"The safest railroad crossing, says bahn press spokesman "are those that have been abandoned." In bavaria, for example, the number of train excursions has been halved from 7000 to 3500 in the last 25 years. On the 15-kilometer-long section of the wiesenttalbahn from forchheim to ebermannstadt, there are currently still 49 railroad crossings, three of which are secured by andreas crosses and warning lights. In kirchehrenbach, railroad barriers ensure safety. The planners’ hope that the railroad gates at wiesenthau station could be lowered as early as 2017 was not fulfilled. But now on 6. In july, extensive work began on the complete renewal of the railroad crossing at kilometer 6.087 of the forchheim – ebermannstadt line.

Extensive construction work

A cable trough will have to be dug along 850 meters of the railroad line so that the signal will warn drivers in good time and the barriers will close automatically. Foundations have to be built for the traffic lights and barrier drives. In the crossing area, foundations are laid for the barrier drives. A new switching station is also necessary. Also new foundations for the signals must be built. Drilling was carried out for the power supply in the intersection area. Finally, the curves and traffic islands at the railroad crossing will be adapted and redesigned.
But this extra safety does not come cheaply. The new barrier system, including the necessary accompanying acceptance tests, cost around 715,000 euros, as a DB network spokesman confirmed on request. The new plant is scheduled to go into operation next monday, 30. July. By then, the previous flashing light system must be dismantled. In the meantime, the crossing is to be secured by a mobile barrier system.

hangover also among germany's em group opponents

"I can’t criticize the fans," said portugal coach paulo bento after the boo-filled loss in leiria to macedonia – number 98 in the FIFA world rankings. "They spent a lot of money for the tickets and wanted to experience a better game."But even from superstar cristiano ronaldo was only little to see.

Danemark’s morten olsen also had to make amends on the first european championship test match weekend after the 1:3 against brazil. 40,000 red-white fans had made a special pilgrimage to hamburg and witnessed their team’s tactical and playing deficits. "We have trained physical things so far, now we have to go to the tactical and mental area", olsen apologized on saturday.

Oranje coach bert van marwijk was served by the disappointing 1:2 loss to underdog bulgaria in amsterdam. The former BVB coach grumbled that the test match had been "very annoying" in parts. "But especially in the last half hour we did everything wrong and completely lost our organization."

“New ara”: where is christian sewing taking deutsche bank??

Expectations for the new head of deutsche bank were high – but after one year in office, christian sewing’s record is comparatively modest.

Germany’s biggest money house is still a long way from its former glory days. Will a merger with commerzbank give us new clout??

Sewing could have been the climber of the year: on 8. April 2018 the supervisory board of deutsche bank orders the then 47-year-old "with immediate effect" to the chief post of the roughest german money house. After three years of losses and in view of a tough reorganization of the group under CEO john cryan, the auditors expect "strong leadership" and "assertiveness".

Loschwasserbehalter: mayor acted on his own authority

Loschwasserbehalter: mayor acted on his own authority

"Mayor dieter adam, despite all the concerns of the parties involved (wolf company, I-plan architekturburo, building administration), decided not to have the loschwasserbehalter installed at ground level as planned", it says in the prufbericht.

And further: "he has by his arbitrary decisions overruled the market's rights to the new sound water. The holder thus erected was subject to building permit both because of its coarseness and because of its appearance on the development prevailing in this area.

Especially from the point of view of the listed castle, the loschbehalter was a visual eyesore, which was also expressed more than clearly in the burgers' protest.

“Without rough expectation attitude” – kerber restrained

Angelique kerber has not yet talked to her role model steffi graf about the career-grand-slam. Only six players in the history of professional tennis have won the title at all four rough tournaments.

But just before the start of the french open, the wimbledon winner is trying to temper the high expectations. "I start the french open with a mix of confidence and calm, without any rough expectations," kerber told the german press agency. "The grand slams are always a spectacle and these debates are part of the anticipation of everyone involved. I see this calmly and can meanwhile classify it well."

Since midweek, the 31-year-old from kiel has been training on the red clay courts at the bois de boulogne. "I’m happy to be here. Two weeks ago I wasn’t sure if I would be able to play at all," kerber said in paris. Because to call her preparation mixed is an understatement.

“The cow decides for herself”

Agriculture is anything but old wagon wheels and wooden plows. The bavarian farmers’ association (BBV) now wants to renew this nostalgic image with an image campaign. We spoke to hans rebelein, managing director of the coburg and lichtenfels farmers’ association, about the implementation of the campaign, young farmers and self-determined cows.

FT: how is the profession of farming currently perceived by the public??
Hans rebelein: not so long ago, there were surveys on the value of professions in the public eye, and farmers came in third. So you can say that it is a very positive picture. Farmers often don’t believe it themselves, but it’s actually the case. I think this is because many people trust their local farmers. You can already see that regional products are more popular than organic products. People simply trust the farmers in their area, in the region, to deliver the best quality.

If the image is already so positive, why an image campaign??
There is nothing that could not be improved upon. We would like to emphasize the modernity of agriculture, because often only the nostalgic is seen. But not everything was better in the past. Today, for example, it would no longer be permissible to keep animals in the same way as 50 or 80 years ago. There were no windows in the barns and the ceilings were low. According to today’s standards, the animals have air and light and can move freely as far as possible.

To the 13. Time live-earth-festival for a better life

The live-earth-festival for a better life takes place for the 13th time this year. Time on saturday, 29. June, from 4 p.M. Until after midnight.

If you want to experience a lot of great people, great ideas and great music, the festival in litzendorf is the right place for you, the organizers report. Because this is the goal that the preparation team around georg lunz sets for itself every year. Again this year there will be activities for children on the sports field in naisa starting at 2 pm in the form of a bouncy castle, box-climbing, non-alcoholic drinks and many information booths (bund naturschutz, gaia protection, greenpeace, sea shepherd and an action group of the franz-ludwig-gymnasium).

The team of the festival for a better life has set itself the goal not only to create a pleasant evening, but also to make a difference – towards a better world. This is appealing to more and more people, especially since the music at the live-earth-festival is also worth seeing this year. The band "bambuda from bamberg opens the festival with a world music fusion formation around the syrian-kurdish sanger and saz player ferat wali. The group moves between traditional kurdish songs, oriental pop, rock, funk or jazz-rock – absolutely worth listening to. The choir of the middle school in litzendorf also gives a taste of its abilities. Holy panda" has devoted itself entirely to rock’n’roll in the style of the 70s dedicated to perform the music of greats like bon jovi and iron maiden. Familiar soundscapes stand in the night with a touch of melancholy – that’s what "slam elefant" stands for, when they stomp through the alleys of the city. "Slam elephant" animates to dance and simply rubs along.

In action for safety around hochstadt

"We invested around 1800 volunteer hours in traffic safety last year.", siegfried nurnberger summarized. As chairman of the hochstadter verkehrswacht, he presented the work of his association in figures at the annual general meeting.

In 2018, 310 schoolchildren took their bike test, 340 children took part in the school road safety training course, and 54 school crossing guards and 50 adult school road helpers defused dangerous traffic situations. For these helpers, there are now 100 new neon yellow vests sponsored by the sparkasse foundation. Nurnberger is particularly proud of the number 0, because "there has not been a single accident at the crossings we guard, and that since we began our work around 50 years ago." The mayors of hochstadt, weisendorf, wachenroth, hemhofen and rottenbach also credit the traffic police for this success and thanked them at the meeting for their good cooperation.

After the reports of the board of directors there was a special honor for loyal members. Hans joachim schacher can look back on 50 years of service in the hochstader traffic patrol. "Actually, everyone knows me by the name of jochen," he said with a laugh, he said with a laugh, looking at his certificate. He was joined by the mayors of rottenbach, lonnerstadt and hemhofen, whose communities were also honored for 50 years of membership.
