SPD: Munich preserves metro stations half-heartedly before the expiration
SPD politicians from the Maxvorstadt have the support of the U-Bahn in the eye - and see the need for action. You are demanding to improve the appearance in a sustainable way. Especially the holding affected the University, Odeon Platz, the königsplatz, Theresienstraße, Joseph court, Stiglmaierplatz and Maillingerstraße. the Stefan Mühleisen

The social Democrats in the district of Maxvorstadt, the metro stations have taken in your area of effect in the eye - and what you have seen, you don't like them at all. It is not sufficient to preserve the stations in "only half-heartedly, before the decline", write the city district politicians, in an application to the Munich transport company (MVG), the district Committee has now decided. The body calls on in the paper, the städtische subsidiary to renovate the appearance of the underground railway stations in the short to medium term, and to upgrade. Explicitly, the holding points of the University, Odeonsplatz, Königsplatz, Theresienstraße, Joseph court, Stiglmaierplatz and Maillingerstraße.

The SPD parliamentary group has compiled a catalogue of claims, documented with photos, which should be resolved according to the representatives of the people. At the station "Theresienstraße" square and the Odeon gape, as well as on the building under the king's square, for example, large gaps in the wall panels to the rails so that the bare concrete and the stop watch seemed to be; this also applies to the missing slats in the ceiling designs, the tubes give a free view of the blank lines located and, in part, inactive neon.

In the open Ceiling structures have taken root and sometimes pigeons, complain about the local politicians. The result: plenty of pigeon droppings at the edge of the platform, for example, on the Stop "Theresienstraße", as well as heavily soiled Ceiling elements. Furthermore, the politicians have noticed the arg tapped staircase handrails.

The Odeonsplatz is specifically for the MVG on the Plan: A General renovation was planned, says spokesman Korte, the schedule is still open, but to a concept.

The decades-old Munich U-Bahn network came stations with its 100 rail anyway, in the years to come. Some of the dilapidated buildings has renovated the MVG already: The main train station and Marienplatz newly designed sub-projectiles; at the Ostbahnhof by salt water entrained concrete were replaced joints. The largest project is the refurbishment of the underground station Sendlinger Tor. "We have our hands full with the renovation, because the embellishment has to be back, unfortunately," says Korte.

Meanwhile, the passengers in addition to the aesthetic Nuisance the next few years, probably to annoying impairments. Because it's not just the equipment, also the rails in the tube structure must be renewed, as this is done, for example, on the route of the U 3 between scheidplatz and Münchner Freiheit.
