The proposed High Mosel bridge


Approval has apparently recently been given for the building of a 4-lane 160 metre high concrete road bridge, the B50 High Mosel Bridge.  Campaigners note that this will have a severe impact on the vineyards and villages of Ürzig, Zeltingen-Rachtig and Wehlen, which make some great wines (visual impression).  Where the road is planned to continue on above Graach, it also threatens the stability of the vineyard, and disregards the landscape integrity of the Graacher Schanzen hillfort.  For an open letter written to Angel Merkel about this by Sarah Washington, see http://mobile-radio.net/bridge.html .
