Sorry for a silly question but what is the speed limit in the "Autobahnähnliche Straße"? Is it the regular 100km/h or something else?

Yep. That's true for all German roads with physically separated carriageways.

Most of those Autobahnähnliche Straßen usually do have some posted limit between 100 and 130 km/h. I think the number of Autobahnähnliche Straßen without speed limits is quite limited.

I believe you're talking about the A61 in the futere, and the A44 near jackerath (I believe) which is currently dug up

That's right. They've already dismantled the A44 near Jackerath. In Google Earth you can find some pretty good pics of this. It looks very weird IMO. AFAIK the A61 won't be dismantled until 2017, but I'm not sure about it. Am I right that they're going to rebuild the A44 when they're starting on the A61? I wonder how they're going to do that. Build a bridge across the mine?

Also A4 between Düren and Kreuz Kerpen. It will be eaten away by Tagebau Hambach.

No, after mining the land will be rehabilitated and restored. In the picture below you can see an example of restored land at the Garzweiler area:

Kreuz Münster-Süd

Kreuz Münster-Süd, is, as indicated by it's name, an interchange at the southern side of the city of Münster, population 274,000.

This interchange was completed in 1973 as a cloverleaf. Between 2003 and 2005 a direct fly-over was built to accommodate traffic from Recklinghausen towards Osnabrück. This reduced congestion at this interchange. Meanwhile, A1 was widened from here to Münster-Nord to six lanes.

Rasthof Gräfenhausen at A5 is a nice place to stop if you want to spot planes and highspeed autobahntraffic.

It's busy in Northern Germany:

Quote:
A7 Hannover - Hamburg
Zwischen AS Berkhof und AS Soltau-Ost in beiden Richtungen 50 km stockender Verkehr
50 km traffic jam in both directions. But:

Quote:
Zwischen AS Großburgwedel und AS Berkhof 16 km stockender Verkehr
That means the northbound traffic jams is 66 kilometers long.
