Bamberg trembles for auto jobs

Bamberg trembles for auto jobs

Michael wehner bamberg – it is a cloudy wednesday in september when the bomb bursts in the industrial area in hallstadt: at a works meeting called at short notice, the workforce of tire manufacturer michelin learns that the hallstadt site will close on 31. To be closed on january 2021. The shock could hardly have been more severe: as recently as 2018, a site continuation agreement had been signed with the french company management. According to the plan, the hallstadt plant should have existed at least until 2022. But nothing comes of it – not least because of the sales difficulties for the 16-inch tires. For bamberg, this means that despite all the protests against the breach of contract, a success story that has lasted for almost five decades is about to come to an end. 860 employees lose their jobs. A huge industrial site is looking for a new use.

The news of the job losses has shaken not only hallstadt but the entire bamberg region, where 20,000 employees depend on the fortunes of the automotive supply industry.

Just how uncertain their prospects are after years of austerity is shown not only by the michelin case, but by a whole series of crisis news items that run like a red thread through 2019 and make bamberg fear for the future of its most important industry. In april, 3,000 bohemians had already taken to the streets to demonstrate by living example what is at stake for the region if bosch wobbles. Because if the rapid electrification of the vehicle fleets came about, a large proportion of the 7,000 jobs still at bosch in bamberg would be threatened, because the focus would still be on the production of diesel components.

Gedrange until the rain came

Gedrange until the rain came

Thousands thronged yesterday to the first open sunday of this year, which was organized by the treffpunkt lichtenfels together with the city marketing association. The coburger strabe, which was closed for cars on that day, served as a magistrale for the event. People didn’t go to hers, they almost flocked to hers.

22 car dealerships and businesses took part, as well as clubs and 15 food trucks, which drove into the city center for the first time from the surrounding area or further afield. At many trucks, the queues of the pending were more than 15 meters long. Veggie burgers, fancy subs, choice ingredients on hamburgers – the epicurean variety was enormous.

Enormous also the run, which the load up to approximately 14.45 o’clock had to register. Actually, the day care center lichtenfels is closed on sunday, but yesterday it was exceptionally different. "I would like to say that this is a worthwhile event", says georg beet, assistant to the management, about the rush of people who wanted to find out about the facility.

Filling up with sunshine on kulmbach’s eku site without any problems?

Filling up with sunshine on kulmbach's eku site without any problems?

The symbols indicate where electricity will soon be available: two parking spaces have been reserved on the redesigned eku square; here, two electric cars will be able to charge their batteries simultaneously at a charging station. Jurgen ohrlein, on the other hand, wonders: what is the filling station doing above ground, where it is exposed to the blazing sun – and not in the underground car park below, i.E. In the shade??

The engineer and electro-pioneer from rothwind, who drives two renault electric vehicles, uses physics and chemistry to make his point. "The municipal utilities should actually be aware that at temperatures above 35 degrees celsius, the charging process – regardless of the type of battery – no longer proceeds without complications. You know that from a cell phone too. It can take much longer than normal until the battery is full, sometimes the charging process can rub off completely, then nothing works anymore."

Cities like bamberg had taken this into account when installing the e-charging stations and, for example, moved them to the underground car park at the concert hall.

Are old town residents burger 2. Class?

To the report "lively city center of the 14. September: the "first market is celebrated as a success in the article about the open sunday in ebermannstadt. It may be that a market and an open sunday in the current corona situation with the most beautiful late summer weather is something special for the visitors. However, the residents of the old town experience this market quite differently than reported, especially in view of the fact that there are probably plans to make closing the market square on weekends the standard procedure.

On saturday morning around 6.At 30 o'clock they were woken up in the upper main street by city workers with leaf blowers, because something had to be cleaned up quickly. Rosengasse, brauhausgasse and also basteibraugasse were declared dead ends. But if you think that this will at least give the residents peace and quiet from the traffic, you are wrong. The diverted traffic squeezed through the narrow streets already in the early morning in the form of hundreds of cars and motorcycles, only to find that there was no way to get through. The larm and exhaust gas loads were accordingly.

For the residents, this was a foretaste of what the city administration is planning with isek (integrated urban development concept): namely, the closure of the market square to through traffic on saturdays from 2 p.M. Until sunday at 10 p.M. For the residents of the city center, this is an extreme burden, which should not become a permanent condition. And there is no need to wait in the narrow streets for a child to be run over to show the questionability of such a mabnahme.
