Overall, the Barloer Heimatverein Vör would like to invest its Boorle 99.000 Euro in the project.? In the context of our summer tour of the CDU parliamentary group, we also took a closer look at the historic viaduct in Barlo. As we have noted, the 1880 completed bridge structure is severely at risk of decay. Without appropriate security measures, the viaduct will disintegrate in the foreseeable future. That must not happen! ??, RainerVenhorst, CDU city councilor for Barlo, makes clear. But this would not only make Bocholt lose a historic structure. Venhorst: ?? Via the Viaduct also leads one of the busiest bicycle routes in the neighboring Dutch community. Should the building disintegrate, then this route would have to be closed. ?? The Barloer Heimatverein wants to preserve the only surviving viaduct in a radius of 30 km for posterity.
