In the Hochheide district, several manhole covers were pushed up by the floods. They are now on the road and affect the traffic. The warning comes from a local resident on Facebook.


This is the city of Duisburg:

  • fifth largest city in North Rhine-Westphalia, consists of seven city districts
  • has around 498,686 inhabitants (as of December 2019)

  • almost a third of the pig iron produced in Germany comes from the eight Duisburg blast furnaces
  • Sights include: Landscape Park Duisburg-Nord, Tiger & Turtle – Magic Mountain, Sechs-Seen-Platte

On the Bruchstraße in the direction of Venator am Essenberg, the manhole covers should be on the road. This is said to have already led to tire damage in several cars.
