German commuters have to shovel snow

In the Winter, with S-train-driver from the German Solln used a lot. The platforms sink for days in the ice and snow, time will be blocked for security reasons, the steep access stairs, so that people have to take long detours. Also, this week started with the usual Trouble. It's just that driving handles guests this time, even to the shovel to make the Station accessible. On Monday and Tuesday with shovel lot: six asylum seekers from the Forstenrieder the member of the Bundestag Michael Kuffer, a local politician, accommodation, and a Secretary.

The Station & Service AG, Deutsche Bahn was only able to keep the security strip halfway. "The stairs to the train from the platform is terrible, all full of snow and bare ice." So Reinhold Wirthl (CSU), which he has observed since Monday in the case of repeated Visit of the Station portrays. Wirthl is the spokesperson of the BA-sub-Committee on transport and the "station sponsor" of the district. His eyes are not right, the CSU Bundestag Deputy Michael Kuffer, who lives in the South of Munich wanted to trust. Kuffer had on Monday, to take the S 7 in the center, handle first but then the snow shovel, and other passengers a way to the tracks.

Of such initiatives is strongly discouraged, he urges us to be "counter-productive" and "bloody dangerous for all Concerned". Not even snow could be on the tracks or on Soft tipped. The lead to the disturbance of electrical contacts and cancellations.
