It's quite unusual: normally, motorists can't wait until work on a construction site and the accompanying side effects such as detours or temporary traffic lights are finally over. In stockheim, they had at least one companion piece they liked to keep a little longer. Because when the B85 last received a new road surface, the traffic lights in the hablach district, where the B 85 and B 89 converge, were temporarily switched off completely. "Then the demand came from the people: 'let them out. It works much better without traffic lights'", says mayor rainer detsch ().
During this time, traffic was regulated exclusively according to the highway code – which, without traffic lights, makes the B 85 a priority road. "That worked', confirms detsch, who at the same time also warns. Although the traffic was able to move more freely, the situation without traffic lights was not entirely without danger for the pedestrians. Not a model for a permanent solution. But something will definitely change at the junction in the coming years.
