Something you can notice in that new junction is that it is still without grown vegetation (for obvious reasons). No other big country, TTEOMK, plants so many trees around junctions and interchanges.

I was discussing this with Chris: it is good in a certain way because it gives a "mystery" impression when you exit or take a ramp surrounded by trees, but on the other hand it blocks any view of viaducts, flyovers and ramps.

I don´t know.
You had a question and I provided you with the link to the right post.




Anyway:
The widening to six lanes of a 10km long stretch of the A7 near Göttingen is now finished.

Finally Another old Reichsautobahn widened to 2x3 lanes!

I wonder why the construction time is so long though. Even greenfield construction of a motorway goes about 2 years faster than the widening of an existing motorway...

A mega traffic jam yesterday on the Autobahn A12 east of Berlin. A combination of a massive gastarbeiter exodus to Poland, a severe truck accident and roadworks on Polish A2 just after the border caused a 50 kilometer traffic jam in the eastbound direction.



Today many Germans again find themselves in long traffic jams. Nearly all NL-bound routes are jammed (90 minute delays on A3-A12 towards Arnhem), and most coast-bound routes are also jammed.

I was surprised to find the A95 toward Garmisch rather empty yesterday... but on the other hand the Italian Brennerautobahn, from the Austrian border till Bolzano-Bozen was full of German-licensed cars... the first Italian car, beside mine, I encountered was in Chiusa-Klausen,50 km from the border...

Simply Breathtaking. Wish I had a house somewhere on this road so that I could travel along it everyday.

I did a small roadtrip to Cologne on sunday. I think I might get a speeding ticket in the mail. So unfair, I think it was 80km's of no speed limit and then 500m/1km of 120 km/h. The sign was obviously hidden behind trees or something because otherwise I would've seen it. Nice lasergun all set up and I was driving something like 126 km/h. At the time, there were like 3 cars passing me. I thought I saw the red laser flash for a minute but I'm not sure. Anyway, pretty sad move IMO. Can anyone tell me how much the fine will approx. be? The navigation system [Tomtom] didn't recognize the lasergun and also didn't recognize the reduced speed limit. Meeh so unfair

If the speed limit was 120km/h they would never ever put the laser on 126km/h cause it would make 200pictures in 3minutes - and if you can prove that the sign was covered by anything you have good cards

A video about the new motorway that will connect the A61 with the Dutch A74 near Kaldenkirchen / Venlo.



As you may have read in the Dutch motorway thread, the Dutch Council of State dismissed all appeals against the construction of the A74 on the Dutch side, which means construction can proceed as planned. The opening will hopefully be in early - mid 2012.

A1 Heiligenhafen - Lübeck - Hamburg

This photo set follows A1 southbound from its northern terminus at Heiligenhafen towards Hamburg, covering a distance of just over 120 kilometers. Notable issues are the short tunnel near Gremersdorf (Vmax=80), the large number of exits north of Lübeck, the lack of shoulders around Scharbeutz and the six lanes between Lübeck and Hamburg. A1 is not extremely busy, and the capacity is usually sufficient.

route:
