Special features

Between the Weinstrasse and the Homburger Landstrasse, the already completed footpath on the subway track side had to be taken up again, as the planned lighting masts could not be erected, because a high-pressure gas pipeline was found at the planned location of the lighting poles. In order to erect the new lighting poles, a new power cable had to be laid in the sidewalk. Due to this obstruction, the work was interrupted for 10 weeks and attached to the planned construction time at the back.
