Suddenly I realize that what is missing from this border (street) are the signs that I generally associate with the border – the ones you see a lot around here. The ‘Welcome in Limburg’, or the “Willkommen in Nordrhein-Westfalen” signs with a little silhouette of a skyline or some ‘main’ attraction associated with that particular area – or some other sort of boundary marker. I wonder what the street would have looked like if it would be full of these types of signs or border indicators – one in every sidestreet. Why, in the redesign of the street, did they opt for a different kind of ‘border communication’. Or perhaps nothing at all because these two towns merge into one another quite naturally – and maybe that is perhaps exactly what they wanted to communicate.
