What’s happening at the “Spandau Gate”?: The little riddle about the scaffolding – Districts – Berlin

And here is the next construction site from Berlin-Spandau: Something is happening at the old Gutstor on Lake Glienicke. This is a run-down landmark on the Ritterfelddamm in Kladow, where 10,000 cars roll past every day. But the archway has been scaffolded and covered for a week. The DIN A4 construction sign on Ritterfelddamm only says cryptically “monument protection”. Is the “Spandau Gate” being renovated? That was now the topic of the Spandau newsletter from the Tagesspiegel, which reported on it. The newsletter is available in its entirety at people.tagesspiegel.de.

On the other side there is a beautiful counterpart: the “Potsdamer Tor”, which was renovated in 2006: here a photo.

So I radioed City Councilor Thorsten Schatz, CDU, in the town hall – and suddenly the story in the Tagesspiegel newsletter for Spandau got an unexpected twist: It’s about improving the footpath and cycle path, which was a topic here two weeks ago. The street has really nasty cobblestones. Improvements for pedestrians and cyclists have been discussed for years: here the whole story in the daily mirror. The car traffic itself rolls between Kladow and Potsdam over another, slippery road.

“In view of a possible improvement the navigability of the road a monument preservation report was also commissioned for the registered Gutsstraße garden monument,” Schatz explained to me. The listed “Berliner Tor” is also part of the investigation. “Therefore it was scaffolded so that the monument conservators can examine the gate system for a good week – after that the scaffolding is gone again.”

The Glienicker See is also a topic in the Tagesspiegel, after all the traffic chaos at the problem bathing area Moorloch is enormous. Traffic signs and roadblocks are also ignored by drivers – here photos, plans, protests. A BVG bus does not run along the shore to the two bathing areas (although one is easy to reach on Ritterfelddamm). The two ideas for the BVG line and what City Councilor Schatz said about it, read here in the daily mirror.
