Bike Touring Highlight
The new route connects in the south to the already completed section to the old harbor König-Ludwig am Rhein Herne Kanal.
The KLT Bahntrasse was extended by the new section from the Ortlohstraße in Recklinghausen to the Becklemer Busch (Horneburger Straße in Castrop-Rauxel.
The new section is completely asphalted and is about 7,0 km long.
In the final stage, the former mine railway line from the Rhine-Herne Canal to the Halde General Blumenthal in Oer-Erkenschwick lead and there connect to the Haard.
I drove on to the ship lift Henrichenburg.

Really very nice bike path, the entry of which in Castrop or from Datteln is unfortunately not very well signposted. In general, a lot more signposts should point to this cycle path.
I drove the bike path from the boat lift towards the Rhine-Herne Canal where you can then turn left towards the boat lift. If you start from the ship lift you can drive a very nice circuit. The KLT entry is from the Hebewerk west on Provinzialstr./Dortmunder Str, after the bridge left to the Höfen (keep left at the intersection), then left on Horneburger Str., Past Peacock's Manor, then left up the ramp to the KLT . Drive through the KLT route to the canal, then left towards Henrichenburg. The construction site on the canal is finally over, so that you can now drive through again directly. Have fun

Beautiful railway line, on the edge with relics from the mining industry to admire! There is a diesel locomotive, a battery locomotive and also a contact wire locomotive from underground! There is also a coal car on a tipping device, extension arches with pipes and EMS rails, a cable pulley, a sign extension and colliery graffiti! So almost everything a buddy's heart desires!

This does not directly affect the KLT, unfortunately there are some detours on the canal and on the Emscher cycle path due to the work on the Emscher, which are not so nice. If you come to the canal from the north and want to go in the direction of the ship lift, the end of the Kanalstrasse bridge is over and you have to follow the detour. If you then want to drive along the Emscher Cycle Path you will also come across a construction site that will take you a short distance along the Suderwicher Strasse. The bike path is not very long, but very narrow due to the oncoming traffic. Alternatively via the canal road towards Castrop, then left towards Henrichenburg. Not as nice as on the Emscher but also not as busy. As of May 17th, 2020
