District politicians criticize the non-transparent planning of the roof construction on the field bunker. In a question, they want to know details from the Senate.

When it comes to public relations, the project planners of the superstructure on the Feldstrabenbunker are actually professionals. But the deputies of the district assembly Mitte of SPD and Greens feel badly informed and have resorted to a rather unusual means: In a district inquiry, they want to know concrete details about the planned roof construction from the Senate. For example, "How many hotel rooms usable for tourism are planned?", "How is the "district garden" to be financed in the long term?" and "Which rooms are made possible for which district use and on what terms?" In this way, the district deputies are taking a certain distance from the Senate – normally, such questions go through members of the Burgerschaft and tend to be asked by members of the opposition.
