Yeah, the Warnowtunnel. I believe it's the only toll tunnel in Germany.

I have seen that MAUT sign in Nürnberg too, where the urban expressway becomes the A73. It's tolled for trucks.

No, the German truck maut is with transponders or pre-programmed routes on a payment terminal. I believe about 98% of the tolls are payed by the transponder boxes.

If Europe wants a toll system, I think the easiest would be one with license plate recognition. You can create an account and are billed automatically every time you pass under a license plate camera. People without an account will also be billed, but with an increased fee for the administration costs to find out the owner of the vehicle. This system exists in Texas and is called "ZipCash". That way you don't need a transponder in the vehicle.

A transponder which is compatible in the whole of Europe is also an option, but countries seem to develop their own system for that (like Slovakia).

EU administration should step in and take decision for some system. If they could decide about vegetables and lightbulbs, then that's the least they can do.

The A7 has been completed as of 1 september 2009. The last part near Füssen has been opened to traffic!

That`s nice! I`m going to München in 2 weeks, and the plan is to drive A7 from Flensburg to "Kreuz Ulm A7/A8".

That part has been completed for like 20 years at least (the last gap was somewhere between Würzburg and Ulm in the 80's). Some parts of the A7 opened as early as 1937.

By the way, if you're going to München, the A3-A9 route via Nürnberg might be better, because A8 is lined up with workzones. A9 is six laned all the way from Nürnberg to München (even 8 lanes partially).

Maybe I`ll do that, thanks for the advice!

There's another toll tunnel in Germany: at the road from Lübeck to Travemünde

I believe the situation there is called private-public-partnership

it's located here: http://maps.google.de/maps?q=l%C3%BC...,0.241356&z=12

A44 Dortmund - Kassel

Click on the title to view the full set.

This set follows A44 eastbound from Dortmund to Kassel, passing through the northern edge of the Sauerland range. After you've passed Werl, the road becomes much quieter, because much traffic goes deeper into the Sauerland.
This route is almost 150 kilometers long.

My favourite topic to complain about (Hochmoselübergang) was in discussion for public-private-partnership like the tunnels in Rostock and Lübeck, too.

From what I heard both toll tunnels in the north are flops due to less users than expected.

Here an article in Spiegel (in german) about Herrentunnel: http://www.spiegel.de/wirtschaft/0,1518,508539,00.html

Finally, after a glorious battle for 30 years (!) environmentalists lost and the last stretch of A7 was opened.

Regarding tolls: 2+2 bridges, tunnels and roads financed by private investors can be tolled in Germany for a few years now. The Warnowtunnel is the best known, another example would be the Herrentunnel in Lübeck. Some more projects (including some bridges/tunnels on the Elbe around Hamburg) are planned.

So I'm thinking about a career in civil engineering and I was wondering how what the prospects of a job in Europe are. Is there high demand for jobs in Europe? And what about high-level education?
