Alexander Dobrindt has probably one of the most beautiful constituencies. The CSU land group in the Bundestag represents Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Murnau, Oberammergau, Ettal, Krün, Schongau, lake main. And the Village of Oberau.
Because the pre-Alps region is so beautiful, she is also popular. This brings traffic. At the weekend, very much traffic there. Why Oberauer were overjoyed, as Dobrindt, the then Federal transport Minister, in January 2015, was able to announce that the long-awaited and long-promised bypass velvet Tunnel will now be addressed. Start of construction was in September 2015.
of Course, Dobrindt, in personal Union, the responsible Minister and the responsible member was present.

Oberau, the investment project with the current number S0095-on a list for the budget Committee of the Parliament, along with 29 other projects.

Oberaus. The project had already begun with a charge: As Dobrindt the start of construction and to celebrate, were 206 million euros compared to 174 million, as the project of 2014 was approved by the Minister Dobrindt. On the budget Committee and the road construction plan is over, as the Green MEP Sven-Christian Kindler recalls. Meanwhile, the costs of 251 million Euro, up from 44 percent. The reasons, according to the list: General construction cost increases and difficulties in the construction.
At the top: An increase of 171 percent
in order for the bypass of Oberau is not the banks, but still at the top of the platform. The bypass is Zeutsch in Thuringia, where the cost within a year in order to 171 percent shot now 24 million euros. One reason, according to the Ministry of transport: "new or clarified insights from in-depth or revised planning".
This reasoning is at least half of the significantly more expensive measures. In the 113% more expensive retrofitting of the emergency exits for the Tunnel Germsbach in Baden-Württemberg or the project "reconstruction and extension of the unmanaged raster system shepherd born" on the A5 in Hessen, which is now up to 83 percent over the original Plan.
The Ministry of transport, the more expenses will add up to the list for the budget Committee to nearly 764 million euros on average per project, so a good 25 million euros. However, it is also noted that a total of 52 outliers account for the cost (22 on the previous list) less than seven percent of the total of 811 measures identified in the road plan for 2018.
Kindler: transport policy for Lord of the manor
For Kindler, the reasons for the cost explosion are not only to price increases and / or subsequent difficulties. "Oberau is a lesson for all, what the Ministry of transport is running in the CSU wrong," he told the daily mirror. "Here, the Minister of transport has thrown for Lord of the manor, many millions of tax money for a superfluous project out, just to make himself in his own constituency popular. At the same time, the costs were expected to brutally beautiful. Subsequent costs pasta programmed in this area.“More about

The by-pass road, in Oberau, but it is just a particularly prominent example. Under the CSU-Transport Ministers – before Dobrindt officiated by Peter Ramsauer, the successor to Andreas Scheuer is issued – would be billions in road construction, "the absence of meaningful projects such as the Expansion of the rail network or Public transport." This is the opposite of a sensible and sustainable transport policy. "The CSU spirit journey in the Ministry of transport must finally stop," said Kindler.
