That's true, most of the autobahn construction was halted in 1942. But they usually didn't get to the state of "unfinished carriageways". For instance, on today's DW142 (*) you can still see where the works were interrupted:
(all images are from Bartosz Bajków's site http://www.berlinka.pcp.pl/berlinka.html)







It's not that the concrete pavement was pulled off from between those concrete kerbs. The pavement was never laid there...


(*) DW142 is the part of the autobahn from Szczecin to the east, which is used today as a local road.

Where exactly did he do that? I don't want to offend your grandfather, but I'm afraid he was selling you some "urban legend"...

I wish i had pictures of the chilean route 5 highway before it was privatized!
That's a PERFECT example of crappy motorways, now it looks great though.

It would be so interesting if that autobahn could be completed on its original grade all the way to that border crossing that the Russians want to open. I have traced much of its routing on Google air photos and I can see no physical impediments to doing that.

Hey, I think it's great! Cobblestones on a divided, multilane highway! Why that's almost art, kind of like driving the old American Route 66 or something. Whatever you do, don't loose that, it's not replaceable.

Yes, part of motorway Belin-Moscow, planned for Olympic Games 1980 in Moscow. Maybe they will use this part during the construction of the motorway from Łódź to Warsaw

I think the place for new beauty shiny Struma-like A2 will be the same. So, only 2, maybe 3 years left to visit it and take photos

Those are not really crappy motorways, but more historic remnants.
