Frankfurt – What an unworthy back and forth …
The city of Frankfurt first announced that the controversial closure of the Mainkai must be reversed from September 1. Reason: A decree by the Hessian Minister of Transport Tarik Al-Wazir (49, Greens).
Frankfurt Transport Director Oesterling: “The wording leaves no room for the city.” That means: An extension of the traffic-free zone beyond August is off the table.
The U-turn on Thursday evening during the city council.

The Ministry of Transport said the city had misinterpreted the letter. The enactment did not under any circumstances lead to an obligatory end of the ban (source: FR). The city would only have to give a reason so that you can continue to block. Oesterling ruled that out in the morning …
Mayor Peter Feldmann (61, SPD) is happy about the new opportunity: “We would like to see an idea competition for the whole city on how we want to shape life on the Main together. It is a good thing that the green transport minister is not blocking the way under pressure from the city. Let us make a successful model out of the pilot project. “

The CDU, on the other hand, is still in favor of opening up. Group leader Kößler: “We will not do a test extension by trickery!”
