Conservation issues presented to the World Heritage Committee in 2000

The Secretariat has been informed by a great number of persons of a plan to construct a road close to the Castle of Tiefurth, which forms part of the World Heritage site Classical Weimar (Germany). According to this information several proposals have been developed for the location of the road. The Secretariat requested on 11 July 2000 the German authorities for a report on this matter. To date, the requested report has not yet been submitted to the Secretariat.

ICOMOS raised some concern with regard to the planned road and recommends that the Committee should request a thorough analysis of this matter by an independent expert before the bypass project is finally implemented.
