A3 A-Border - Kreuz Regensburg
A93 Kreuz regensburg - Siegenburg

My route:


Sorry for the quality but it's really difficult to take photos from a bus ( mostly trough a lot of people).
Date of pics: 2009/07/10

1. Road works between Pocking and Passau-Süd


2.


3. Approaching exit Passau-Süd.


4. A3 from the Raststätte Donautal Ost.


5.


6. The Danube and Passau in the background from the Donaubrücke Schalding (1052m)


7. From the Mühlbachtalbrücke (260m)


8. Approaching exit Hengersberg.


9. After the exit.


10.


11. Interesting bridge.


12. The Donaubrücke Deggenau.


13. 847m.


14.


15. Another interesting bridge (Donaubrücke Metten 622m)


16. The Danube from the bridge.


17. Regensburg is still 65km far away.


18. Approaching exit Straubing.


19. Distance sign.


20. Road works ahead.


21. The constructor.


22. The empty side.


23.


24. New surface.


25. Without asphalt.


26. Exit Kirchroth.


27. Dirtmotorway.


28. They still must wait a bit.


29. Without asphalt yet.


30. With asphalt.


31. A reconstructed bridge.


32. Bad concrete surface...


33.


34. The Danube from the Donaubrücke Wörth (404m).


35. Distance sign.


36. Turning right here ( why is this red dot placed after Nürnberg?).


37. The A93. (Without collectors in a cloverleaf interchange...)


38.


39. Construction of the B15 gelbe autobahn.


40.


41. The overpass.


42. And finally a distance sign.



And two questions:

1. What are these signs meaning?


2. What are these road markings meaning?

So the Autobahn Regensburg - Rosenheim is definitely going to get built?
Anybody know when it will be completed? It will be built to Autobahn standards, despite the "B15" designation, right?

It's scary when they do though!

Anyway nice pics of der Autobahn! Signs look better than the ones stateside.

Wouldn't mind driving like 180km/h on one of those.

How many is the speed limit on those expressways in Germany? (Because I didn't see expressway marking on the speed limit sign after the border...)

That varies.

Some expressways (Kraftfahrstraßen) that are Autobahn-like roads (Gelbe Autobahnen) do not have any speed limit, similar to the regular Autobahnen. Others do have a speed limit, depending on local circumstances. It's often 120 km/h or 100 (which is the general non-urban speed limit in Germany).

Does anyone have information on "dynamic pavement markings"? I know the Netherlands uses them.

Is whole A38 in use ? Or some parts u/c. It seems to be a very good alternative to A4.

As far as I know, the last gap near Breitenworbis (a few kilometers) should be completed near the end of 2009.

01) Many windmils in this part of Germany.

04) Speedlimit: 100.

Kinda OT, but I was picked up by one [Iranian truck] in Poland when hitchhiking to Berlin in 1996. Very interesting trip... These guys were listening to something that seemed to be a funeral recording. Happy thing to listen to in your track, a mourning session in the morning

PS Iranians are civilized people, though.
