The town is increasingly becoming a bicycle-friendly municipality. At its last meeting, the traffic senate decided on a number of new features for pedal cyclists after a prior inspection of the area.
In the lower rosenstrabe, a traffic-calmed area, bicyclists will be able to ride against the one-way traffic lane in the future. Appropriate signage is placed at the mouth of the brunnenstrabe. Detlef heerlein of the city administration saw here a need to let drive in the opposite direction, since with the wheel in the direction of the hospital and protection place environment can be driven shorter and also more traffic-safe. According to heerlein, there is no legal obstacle to opening the route in the opposite direction.
The same arguments for a release of the bicycle traffic against the one-way-street existed in the karl-boger-street. Here, too, there was no legal reason not to open the road, since it is not very busy and the speed limit is 20 km/h. It can be driven thus short direction muppberg. Only signposting and additional markings are to be installed.
As discussed in the bikeway committee, it was decided in consultation with the police to set up a speed limit of 30 km/h on sonneberger strabe in the direction of the city center, even before the traffic lights, in order to increase cyclist safety in the course of planning the bikeway network. A protective strip will be installed in the strabe am moos from the junction with morikestrabe to the junction with eisfelder strabe, so that a continuous cycle connection is created, as it has been established that there is a definite need for this.
Since vehicles have recently been parking in sonneberger strabe quite close to the junction with wildenheider strabe, the traffic authorities and police saw a need for action. The situation there often caused small traffic jams. For this reason, the traffic senate agreed to erect a temporary "no stopping" sign on a ten-meter stretch from the junction of wildenheider strabe to house number 33a.
Reorientation of the municipalities
Information was given on the working group on cycle paths, which was founded in 1991. The aim was first to examine the existing country lanes for their suitability for the cycle path network and to maintain important cycle path connections with a higher priority. In the mid-1990s, meticulous work was carried out together with the adfc to create a complete network of cycle paths through the city center, linking the various parts of the city. The designation of several supra-regional cycle routes also took place. The main coburg tour, the steinach valley route and the european bike path were mentioned. "Through the work of the bicycle paths committee, a bicycle-friendly climate has quickly developed", according to heerlein.
Currently, due to legal changes and a change in leisure time behavior, it seems possible to re-evaluate and adapt a new orientation in traffic planning within the municipalities by means of network connections in the bicycle path committee, it was stated. Detlef heerlein: "we would like to gain momentum as the city of new town on the subject of bicycle traffic."
As heerlein also wanted to know, the suggestions made at castle meetings in ebersdorf, wildenheid, boderndorf, haarbrucken and meilschnitz have been implemented from the point of view of traffic law, or decisions are still being made.
