B15 in Dorfen: First the roundabout, then the Edeka supermarket


The planning for the B 15 south of the railway barrier is available. The planned Edeka market is to be connected with a roundabout. Later it also serves as a connection for the Meindl area.

The planning for the B 15 south of the railway barrier is available.

The planned Edeka market is to be connected with a roundabout.

– The B 15 is the lifeline of Dorfen.

The city centre, supermarkets, train station and the motorway in the south can be reached via it.

At Hausmehringer Berg between the level crossing and the A 94, the road will in future have another feeder function: East of the B 15, a large Edeka supermarket is to be built in the next few years, and a little later the new district on the Meindl site.

A roundabout will be built to connect both.

The engineering office commissioned by investor Manfred Singer presented the planning to the city council on Wednesday.

Important for quick implementation: the concept has already been agreed with the state building authority and the railways.

"It would be good if we could start with the roundabout in 2024," says Singer when asked.

A year later he wants to build the Edeka.

This is necessary because the rental contract at the previous location in Kloster Moosen is expiring.

Singer says that planning has been going on for almost three years.

His company has to shoulder the investment of almost one million euros for the roundabout.

"But that will then be apportioned according to the developed areas," says the entrepreneur with regard to the future beneficiaries of the Meindl site.

Investor Robert Decker would be in demand here.


The plan so far provides for a bypass.

The basis for planning the new junction is a traffic census from July 2021. At that time it was determined that the B 15 in the area was loaded with 14,600 vehicles a day.

"That was already extrapolated with a corona factor," reported Christopher Zeitler from the Infra office at the city council meeting.

Traffic forecasts for 2030 (18,400 vehicles) and 2035 (19,200) were derived from this.

Due to the heavy traffic, simple intersections with or without traffic lights would not achieve the required level of quality, explained Zeitler.

The state building authority responsible for federal roads therefore advocates a roundabout with a bypass.

This extra lane for right-turners from the south is particularly recommended for the next few years, when the level crossing is still gated,

"I don't understand the necessity of the bypass," criticized Andreas Hartl (GAL).

Because there would only have to be a few too many cars in the roundabout because of the usual traffic jam at the level crossing, and you could no longer turn onto the bypass.

“We always strive for space-saving construction.

And here we are also cutting off a biotope," Hartl complained.

He therefore called for a review of whether the roundabout would be efficient enough without a bypass.

The planner promised that he would “take it with him”.

A blocking of the main road will not be necessary for the construction of the roundabout, said Singer, who was given the right to speak for this statement in the boardroom.

"The construction is planned while traffic is still running."

Martin Greimel (CSU) brought another development for Dorfen into play: a southern bypass by relocating the St 2086. According to the ideas of its supporters, this new road could branch off further west from the state road and then join the B 15 at the roundabout.

“It would be very important for Dorfen if the roundabout had four arms.

How does the State Building Authority feel about this?” asked Greimel.

"The connection would be possible," replied planner Zeitler.
