New traffic chaos in Hamburg! The Tudor-Heuss-Platz junction has been built in the Damtordamm and Alsterglases district since March 2021. This aims to improve traffic operations and traffic safety. Construction is scheduled to be completed at the beginning of August. Before that, there will be large-scale shutdowns.
In the past, red light violations occurred repeatedly before the Damtordam confluence at Theodor-Heus-Platz, because the red light for cyclists was either ignored or could not be seen clearly enough, especially by cyclists turning to the right. Diversion measures aim to prevent this in the future and thus increase traffic safety at the busy intersection.
Due to renovations: closures in the areas of Alsterglacis, Theodor-Heuss-Platz and Dammtordamm
Before planning can be completed, large-scale asphalt work must be carried out in the areas of Alsterglacis, Theodor-Heuss-Platz and Dammtordamm. Therefore, the following traffic restrictions will apply over the next three weekends:
Ban 1: Friday, July 16, 2021, from 7 a.m. to Monday, July 19, 2021, at 5 a.m.
At the intersection of Theodor-Heuss-Platz, Mittelweg is completely closed. The streets Alsterglacis – Theodor-Heuss-Platz – Edmund-Siemers-Allee remain open in both directions, but with lower lanes. Entry to Dammtordamm should only be possible from the direction Edmund-Siemers-Allee / Rothenbaumchaussee – Theodor-Heuss-Platz.
