Wilhem275: Yeah, of course we should but it´s related with economy and Danielk2 is right!

You all are very welcome. Thanks.

I do not remember whether it was speed limit there or not. Probably, if it was, I would post a picture with speed limit sign as a first, so we can assume that this section of A4 hasn't got a limitation

By the way, most of A4/E40 going through former East Germany looks similar. Vast part of this autobahn has recently been redesigned and rebuilt, or is being rebuilt, to the highest imaginable standard.


Some time ago in Polish section I posted a report from westernmost part of A4.
Here are several randomly chosen images from there and a link.















All photos were taken by a my mother-in-law (actually sort of) so sometimes we can only see beautiful German skyline

I don't think he is. The camera position is too low. They were taken from a car.

I would like to know what he does for a living, in order to be able to do the amount of driving he does.

Widening progress of A1 Bremen - Hamburg. The colors and years indicate the start of the widening works.

It's the second time that the bridge was damaged by an HGV-accident.

Well, the works start at the beginning of the year and ends in November/Decemer.
So in a few month the red/orange parts will be 2x3.

So did the bridge (both times) collapsed by itself or did HGV truck destroy it?

Nice pics.

But I don't really understand why 60 km/h is necessary in the outer lane. The other thing is, those holes are built in speed cameras?

The end of A98 and A861 seems to be really new for me. When were they opened?

As I see A98 is proyected between A861 and the bypass of Tiengen.
