Night shift in the fight against the snow

Night shift in the fight against the snow

The weather forecasts sounded alarming: snowfall with minus temperatures was forecast. The two tramway maintenance workers on duty at the geiselwind freeway maintenance center prepare for a busy evening. Route control is now the order of the day. A man drives off in a minibus and checks the road conditions, especially on the slopes.

In the meantime, the colleague monitors the road condition and weather reports in the office, as well as the ice detection systems, which provide information about the road temperatures. Everything points to the first winter service assignment this season. The men decide in the late afternoon: they move out with the space vehicles ready for takeoff. One vehicle drives in the direction of the steigerwald, the other as far as the biebelrieder intersection. A sophisticated system ensures that the entire service area is strewn within one to two hours.

Highway patrol reports first accidents

But the snowfall is getting heavier. The freeway police report the first obstructions and accidents. The one spacecraft enters a traffic jam shortly before the final field. An accident – at a walking pace. The truck drives in the middle of the road and spreads "wide". Thus, no one can overtake and both lanes are salted. But the snowfall becomes heavier, the roadways are now covered with snow.
