Authority structure

Hessen Mobil is headquartered in Wiesbaden. In addition, the authority maintains 12 regional locations in Bad Arolsen , Darmstadt , Dillenburg , Eschwege , Frankfurt , Fulda , Gelnhausen , Heppenheim , Kassel , Marburg , Schotten , and Wiesbaden as well as a total of 60 road and motorway maintenance depots. Hessen Mobil also operates the Hessen Transport Center (VZH) in Frankfurt. All Hessian traffic data is collected here and the traffic control system is operated. In the tunnel control center of the State of Hessen in Eschwege, all 15 road tunnels are permanently monitored and controlled by Hessen Mobil. There is also a training center in Rotenburg an der Fulda .


On March 1, 1954, the Hessian State Office for Road Construction was founded. The aim was to coordinate the work of the individual road construction authorities and to set uniform standards in road construction. In the first published directory of offices of the State of Hesse as of April 1, 1975, the road construction administration was organized as follows: 14 road construction offices including 76 road maintenance departments were subordinate to the state office, the Frankfurt motorway office including three branch offices in Alsfeld, Griesheim and Limburg and 15 motorway maintenance departments, and Finally, there were the five new road construction offices Hessen-Süd in Darmstadt , Hessen-Mitte in Gießen , Hessen-Nord in Kassel , Rhein-Main in Wiesbaden and Untermain in Frankfurt am Main with four branch offices. The administration of new roads also included three building material and soil testing centers in Griesheim, Wetzlar and Kassel.

On January 1, 1995, the Hessian State Office for Road Construction (HLS) was renamed the Hessian State Office for Roads and Transport (HLSV) and the Hessian Road Construction Offices (SBÄ) were renamed as Offices for Roads and Transport (ÄSV). With the simultaneous dissolution of the autobahn office (Frankfurt / M.), The autobahn maintenance offices were divided between the offices for road and traffic in Frankfurt / M. (Darmstadt, Diedenbergen , Ehringshausen , Frankfurt am Main, Idstein , Langenselbold , Lorsch , Offenbach am Main , Reiskirchen , Rüsselsheim ) and Kassel ( Alsfeld , Bad Hersfeld , Fulda , Kassel, Kirchheim , Niederelsungen ). In 1996/97 the structural reform of the master workshops took place, in the course of which the present master workshop cuts were essentially created.

The change to the Hessian Road Act in 1997 enabled the districts to no longer have the district roads looked after by the ASV, but by other providers or on their own. For the first time exposed to a competitive situation, the administration of the HLSV was significantly tightened. After the reduction of 1,450 employees between 1990 and 2004, 3,600 full-time positions remained.

On January 1, 2012, the Hessian Road and Transport Administration HSVV was converted into a division. This also changed the name to Hessen Mobil - road and traffic management , Hessen Mobil for short .

As part of the new organization, the formerly largest location, Frankfurt, was closed within two years.
