Graslitzer Straße in Geretsried is being redesigned. The members of the Building and Environment Committee recently thought about exactly what it should look like there in the future.
Geretsried – Pedestrians will soon feel safer on Graslitzer Straße, and drivers will be able to pass each other more easily. And parking there is also to be reorganized. As reported, the city council had already decided to redesign the street. The engineering firm Voit from Icking then prepared a feasibility study. Now the building committee of the city council has put its money where its mouth is. Civil engineer Johannes Voit presented various variants at Tuesday's meeting.
Sidewalk lacks in many parts of the road, cars run over curb
"In many parts there is no sidewalk there. The curb is lowered to the junction with Geltinger Weg, which causes cars to constantly run over the sidewalk. In addition, there is a big parking problem," said city hall employee Lukas Gellner, summarizing the problem of Graslitzer Straße. Johannes Voit from the engineering firm of the same name gave a presentation on the possible variants. The following criteria were taken into account: bidirectional traffic, the creation of alternative bays, the marking of parking spaces and a walkway up to the kindergarten.

Committee members voted in favour of variant with fewer footprints
First, Voit showed the variants for the section Geltinger Weg to Caritas. What all variants have in common is that green islands are used to limit parking spaces and thus create alternative areas. "Otherwise, the road wouldn't be wide enough," Voit explained. In variant one, a two-metre-wide sidewalk would be created in the Geltinger Weg-Caritas section, the roadway would be 3.70 metres wide, there would be a two-metre-wide parking strip and the existing sidewalk. In variant two, the new sidewalk would be wider at 2.50 meters, as would the roadway at a good five meters. But there are no parking spaces for this. The existing sidewalk would also remain here.
For the second section from Caritas to the city museum, a two-metre-wide new sidewalk could be created in variant one, as well as a two-metre-wide parking strip, a five-metre-wide roadway, another two-metre-wide parking strip and the existing sidewalk.
Variant two provides for a new 1.50-metre-wide green strip and a 2.50-metre-wide sidewalk, followed by a two-metre-wide parking strip and the sidewalk.

Parking spaces are eliminated: "I don't know if we can get there with it"
Dr. Sabine Gus-Mayer (CSU) looked with concern at the parking situation. "Caritas and kindergarten have an increased need for parking spaces," she noted. "With this arrangement, we only have a third of the parking spaces. I don't know if we'll get there."
Patrik Kohlert (Geretsrieder Liste) suggested that one or two spaces in front of the facilities should be designated as short-term parking spaces, "only for the pick-up and drop-off times in the kindergarten". That could be done, said Mayor Michael Müller (CSU).
Work is scheduled to begin in 2024
The committee voted unanimously in favour of the variants presented as variant one. As Thomas Loibl, press spokesman for the city, announced when asked, the work is scheduled to begin in 2024. It is not yet possible to make a statement about the costs of the measure.
