Munich. A bomb found near Donnersbergerbrücke on Thursday stopped train and car traffic around Munich central train station.
A 1000-pound bomb from World War II was found in the morning during construction work in the new Arnulfpark area at Erika Mann Street (between Hacker and Donnersbergerbrücke). After 2 p.m. the bomb removal process had completed and train and car traffic resumed. The situation was not without danger: "The detonator was still functional," said a police spokesman, "Therefore we have evacuated the area'.
As it is just before the Easter holidays, the implications for traffic, however, was significant and rail traffic to the Central station had been interrupted. Regional trains and all S-Bahn lines were affected. This afternoon train delays and cancellations are to be expected, informed Deutsche Bahn.
