Schleswig (dpa / lno) - Schleswig-Holstein's higher administrative court has dismissed three lawsuits against the expansion of federal highway 5 near Tönning.

The 4th Senate decided on Tuesday that there are no legal errors in the noise prognosis and the environmental impact assessment.

The court in Schleswig did not allow an appeal against the decisions (Az. 4 KS 1/19, 4 KS 2/19, 4 KS 4/19).

The municipality of Oldenswort and three private individuals had sued against the planning approval decision for the three-lane expansion of the B5 between Tönning and Rothenspieker.

You are the owner or leaseholder of agricultural land that is adjacent to the construction project.

The community fears traffic shifts.

The private parties turned against a connection point planned by Rothenspieker.

This takes up more space than a roundabout, leads to unacceptable noise pollution and affects the landscape more than necessary.

According to the court, the chairman of the senate stated in the oral judgment that the planning authority's considerations were legitimate.

The purpose of the project is to increase the safety and ease of traffic.

The road planning allows more cars to drive through the town, but this additional burden is not significant.

A measurable increase in noise is not to be expected from the construction.
