Phone: 07141 144-44721
Branch office 301 is responsible for the budget, contracts and controlling.
Every year, around 7,000 invoices are raised in the Sub-department for Roads. When road accidents cause damage on roads, we ensure that the person causing the damage or their insurance company pays for the damage. In addition to payment transactions, we are also involved in drawing up the county budget. This includes in particular the provision of funds for road maintenance and for the new construction or reconstruction of county roads.
Planning and construction (GT 302)
Phone: 07141 144-42428
The team from business unit 302 Planning and Construction carries out all construction measures, the extension and rehabilitation of district roads, and occasionally also individual rehabilitation of country roads. In addition, the road bridges and retaining walls are monitored and rehabilitated. In addition to civil engineers, construction technicians and technical draughtswomen, the team also includes the green planner, who plans the landscape conservation integration of the road construction projects and monitors the ecological concerns. The business section also includes the processing of the cycle network in the district, which, like the road network, has an important connecting function within the district.
We plan our projects after consultation and in close cooperation with cities and municipalities as well as with the responsible authorities. Beside the draft of the building measure we prepare everything for the assignment by the committees of the district. The construction process with the construction company and the accounting of the construction measure are our tasks as well as the subsequent monitoring of the warranty periods and the documentation of the completed project.

The business part 303 is responsible for the operation and maintenance of the federal, state and district roads.
Our tasks include
- coordination of the entire operating and maintenance service, including winter maintenance,
- condition assessment, needs assessment and setting up before maintenance and repair programmes,
- tendering, awarding and execution of contracts for operating and maintenance measures,
- monitoring and supervision of traffic lights and tunnel operating facilities,
- fleet and equipment management, including fleet and equipment management Procurement and separation,
- Participation in traffic shows, carrying out traffic censuses, elaborating traffic analyses, comments on third-party projects and drawing up traffic engineering concepts.
The practical work on site is organized by the 3 road maintenance departments with headquarters in Besigheim, Ludwigsburg and Vaihingen/Enz.
Away from the roadway itself, the "women and men in orange" have to maintain and care for the road accessories. E.g. the drainage facilities, the accompanying greenery including woodland, delineators and crash barriers, marking, signposting and traffic signs, traffic lights and much more.
Road construction measures
Road maintenance service
- from April to autumn mowing work will be carried out with various vehicles and equipment. To ensure that the reflector posts and crash barriers are also free of grass and scrub, "hand cutting" with brushcutters is necessary
- The beginning of May is also the time when all tunnels are subjected to a thorough cleaning. In addition to the tunnel walls and ceilings, the drainage and operating facilities are also cleaned and maintained
- Initial signs of winter damage have already repaired, e.g. on the state road 1115 in Besigheim and near Großbottwar
Road law regulates the tasks and responsibilities for the construction and maintenance of state, county and municipal roads in the Road Act for Baden-Württemberg.
Additionally there are also regulations for the use of these roads. If their use does not correspond to normal use, a special use permission is necessary.
The cost of building or modifying roads is also regulated here.
However, special situations and life situations are also covered by road law. Would you have known, for example, that the airspace above a road also belongs to the road?
This plays a role when, for example, a high-voltage line is to be stretched over a road. Or did you know that public roads can also exist on private property?
