For almost two months – broken elevator in the community building: tenants desperate

The elevator in a municipal building in Brigittenau, Vienna, has been broken for two months. The residents must now allow themselves to be carried!

The residents of Trap 28 in the town hall at Wehlistraße 16-22 in Brigittenau are very upset. The elevator in her apartment building has been broken for almost two months.

Especially the elderly and families affected
“It’s a bottomless cheek. I live on the fifth floor and have trouble walking,” says Krone reader Hannelore Reinagl (69), who turned to our editors desperately with a desperate cry for help. In addition, almost only the elderly and families with small children who urgently need the elevator would live in the stairs. But what irritates the cheerful retiree most of all: after another phone call to Wiener Wohnen, the only comment was “to call the Samaritan Association. They would then carry us up and down.” She was also given the number of the elevator company to take care of herself.

Neighbor Waltraud Ruzovits (74) is also disappointed: “It has become almost impossible to do groceries or keep appointments without a lift.” A resident who is dependent on oxygen has not even left the flat since the end of June. But the repair of the elevator, which is so necessary, is difficult, Wiener Wohnen reports on a “Krone” request. The reason for this is the worldwide delivery problems.

Duration of the lift lock still unclear
“Unfortunately, the faulty drive frequency control is currently unavailable. However, the exchange is absolutely necessary for the lift to be commissioned,” says the municipal property manager. It is still unclear when the repair will take place. Until then, you must continue to climb stairs or allow yourself to be carried. In the meantime, even the ombudsman has been called in by the desperate residents.
