Fechenheimer Wald and the mass cull of trees

3 posts in this topic

I haven't been able to find out why, so am opening this up in case anyone knows what is going on. 

 

I live by Fechenheimer Wald and over the past few weeks there has been a huge tree cutting operation where lots of healthy and established trees have been cut down, with plenty more marked to come down.

 

The Wald was really dense, but now it's looking more and more thinned out, and it looks quite desolate with the tree stumps, wreckage of downed trees, and vehicle tracks.

 

Does anyone know why there is this mass tree cull taking place there?

It seems that the construction of a tunnel is being planned: https://merkurist.de/frankfurt/umbaumassnahmen-riederwaldtunnel-abholzung-fuer-verkehrsberuhigung_Vf6

 

Here's the first part of the article:

 

Riederwald tunnel: Deforestation for traffic calming
The project will enter its first construction phase in 2019 - now some areas are being cleared in preparation. For Hesse's Minister of Transport, Al-Wazir, this is a necessary measure because he sees the long-term project as a relief for traffic.

 

Between the districts Bornheim and Riederwald, the so-called Riederwald tunnel is to be built by the year 2030. The new section is a central component of a 2.2-kilometer-long gap between the A66 and A661. The first major construction phase is planned for 2019.

In preparation, the first trees will be felled this winter and wooded areas cleared. As the Hessian road and traffic management company "Hessen Mobil" has now announced, a total of 44 trees and individual areas covered with trees and shrubs are affected by the first logging measures. In order to spare as many trees as possible, the road construction authorities have relocated the access road to the construction site as well as some areas for the construction site and have thus been able to reduce the number of tree felling once again.
