A traffic light as a special feature: in hohnhausen, the local thoroughfare can now be used.

Hohnhausen is the first village in the habberg district to have a traffic light at a bottleneck. But that's not the only special feature that came with the new thoroughfare: during the rehabilitation of the past two years, the drinking water and wastewater sewers were also relocated, so the county road now looks completely different with new sidewalks and open spaces. This has "not only improved the appearance of the town, but also the quality of life in the community", emphasized landrat wilhelm schneider at the official opening on tuesday afternoon in hohnhausen.

Almost the entire village was on its feet to take part in the small ceremony, which particularly pleased the district administrator and manfred rott from the tram construction office. Rott praised the fact that in this case, the work had been carried out jointly by the construction workers and the citizens.

2.1 million euros cost

District administrator schneider then revealed the costs: the rehabilitation of the 350-meter-long local thoroughfare, including the underground networks, new sidewalks and asphalting, cost around 2.1 million euro. Of this amount, 900,000 euros were eligible for funding. 807,000 euros went to the county, while the market town of burgpreppach had to contribute 1.3 million euros. 720,000 euros came in the form of a grant from the government of lower franconia.

The district administrator thanked the citizens for their patience, because they had to accept "obstructions, detours and inconveniences during the construction period". He also thanked the construction companies dinkel from habfurt and newo-bau from horhausen, the county's civil engineering department, the alka engineering office from habfurt and the schweinfurt state building authority for their excellent cooperation.

More projects to follow

"Hohnhausen has thus become a jewel in the market town", is how mayor hermann niediek assessed the new local thoroughfare. Other village renewal projects were to follow in the near future. The design of the "kastanienplatz" (chestnut square), niediek also mentioned the site between the fire station and the playground in this context. "In the next few years, we will also bring the other villages in the market town forward", he also promised.

Manfred rott of the schweinfurt tramway construction office was pleased with the good cooperation with the construction companies, the authorities and the burghers. "Everyone who sees it knows that it has been a success", he said. And alfons schanz from the county's civil engineering office also spoke of an "exciting story" – such good cooperation is what drives him on.

The new traffic lights have made traffic safer – also for pedestrians. Manfred schirdewahn, head of the burgpreppach market community's building yard, announced that the two construction companies and the engineering firm had donated a larger sum to purchase playground equipment for the children's playground. For it there was grateful applause of the present ones.

Symbolic severance

The church blessing for the new through road was then given by the protestant pastor wolfgang scheidel (ditterswind) and the catholic parish vicar ninh (hofheim). Afterwards, the two symbolically cut the ribbon together with the mayor and the district administrator. In the garden of the old school the burgers enjoyed a bite to eat. "The schlossberger" framed the event musically. The attractive decoration on site was thanks to the fruit and horticulture association.
