A25 Hamburg

The A25 is a short motorway located nearly entirely in the state of Hamburg. It is a short commuter motorway for the eastern neighborhoods of Hamburg. This is the least densely populated district of Hamburg. It serves almost no through traffic, so traffic volumes are rather low, starting at 51 000 vehicles near A1, and dropping to 28 000 vehicles near the eastern terminus at Geesthacht.

Shouldn't the 'ahead' directions and the road numbers on the last two pictures be in yellow?

Well, this panel is actually yellow. It's just that the colour faded away and appears to be rather white these days.

...so sad they decided to adjust the hessian signage to the federal standard... I loved the arrows showing down to the lanes. I think by now they have changed all remaining signs or are there still some of the "good" old ones? Sorry for the bad quality of the pics, by the

I made a video of B76 through Kiel a couple of weeks ago. The B76 is an urban expressway with a high exit density and traverses through the Kiel metropolitan area. Quite an interesting road.

Nice video as always, Chris. I have actually travelled on that road twice, and I kind of wonder why no part of the Kiel ring road has an Autobahn number.

You mastered the craft of youtube video editing and superimposing. Very nice video indeed.

EDIT: Chris, I'm sure you told us before but can't find it, which camera model do you use and how did you anchor it to the dashboard?

Does anyone know about ASIM Traffic detectors by xtralis? Specifically, this one?

What kind of traffic sensors are used in Germany? Do they use induction loops like the U.S. and U.K.?

Depends on where of the network, both induction loops - about 6,000 - and radar, infrared or laser sensors (together: "SES", stationary collection systems - about 4,000 on the network) are used. Induction loops mostly in urbanized areas, the newer SES systems on the highways connecting them. The purpose is also slightly different, the induction loops measure overall traffic load of sections primarily while the SES systems usually just measure speed and frequency on the leftmost lane.

The truck toll control system additionally uses infrared 3D camera systems on its ~300 automatic detection systems.

I don't know if it has been said in the thread but they're reconstructing part (or all) of the Kreuz Neufahrn interchange between A9 and A92... I passed there yesterday on my way to the airport, and I saw signs stating that the reconstruction will be complete by December 2011.

Yes, they're building a new fly-over for traffic from Deggendorf / Airport to München.

Add to that the fact that this cloverleaf has 2 lanes because of heavy traffic. The traffic coming from the A9 from Nuernberg for Deggendorf has to yield all the traffic on the cloverleaf with no braking lane. Same for the traffic from A92 from Munich going onto the A9 to Munich. This is a quite unusual configuration and has been the cause of many bad accidents.
I drive on that cloverleaf daily and had myself a couple of near-misses with trucks from Nuernberg running over the yield sign into the cloverleaf at nearly full speed.

That fly-over will improve safety a lot.
