The planning was ready and waiting in the drawer. The rough project should get a mega claim: 85 percent of the estimated construction costs of 12 to 13 million marks. The result of the exploratory drilling in 1993 was also promising. "Good conditions" for the tunnel construction to plassenburg, geologist klaus-hermann hofmann stated. "I think the slope is stable." Everything is clear? No, because two years later this came out. The underground funicular was never put on the track.
Why was the project to break new ground in traffic development at plassenburg buried 25 years ago?? Newspaper reports from the time – the rundschau was full of them – speak a clear language: it was a political power struggle. The city council was in an uproar. A political crime under the sign of the castle.
