We are gearing up for some election action, as there is still a chance of a red / green coalition in Rheinland-Pfalz at the end of March. If that happens the HMÜ will be firmly on the agenda to be wrangled over in the initial negotiations. No guarantees of course, but you can tell the ruling politicians are more than a little twitchy on the issue when journalists ask them about it, which happens fairly frequently.
On the downside, they started scuffing up the land here on the approaches to the bridge again as soon as the big thaw came along. Everyone seems to be rolling up their sleeves now, and the gloves will soon be off. Seconds away, round 11.
We will soon start to prepare for the final round in midsummer if the fools-that-be get started on the bridge. Have a think about visiting us here in the Middle Mosel on your summer holidays with your entire entourage of friends and family…!
Oh and please spread the news that the bridge has not yet been started, I have read some websites that seem to think it is all over.
