A94 Forstinning - Pastetten

Tomorrow, 6 kilometers of A94 will be opened to traffic east of München. It's the short section between Forstinning and Pastetten. g.spinoza may want to check it out

Noooo! Unfortunately tomorrow is my last day of work in Germany and the day after I will come back to Italy, so I can't go there

By the way, I was there yesterday on my way to the Czech Republic... works didn't seem so advanced. I have some pics, maybe tomorrow (today, it's past midnight) I will have time to post them

I checked better, the section between Forstinning and Hohenlingen was already opened when I passed there 2 days ago.

That's not the A94, but a temporary spur into B12. The A94 will head northeast to Pastetten.

Yes, but previously the motorway ended few meters after exit Forstinning, becoming seamlessly the B12. Now those few hundred metres have been upgraded to motorway and the continuation as B12 has been rendered a junction.

The current Google aerial images show the A94-B12 continuation in its prior form, but with the earliest signs of construction work on the A94 extension under way. Also, note the airliner that the satellite caught when you check that project out.

Those little towns in that area look like they'd be fascinating to explore, too!

New video, this time of A73 through the Thuringia Forest (Thüringer Wald) between Coburg and Suhl in central Germany. Very nice ride.

Cool, I drove on that stretch a couple of weeks ago. The Rennsteigtunnel was quite impressive (checked and it's actually part of A71).

Hi to all!
I have a small request.

Does someone has a road map, expecially an Autobahn map, of the former DDR?

Thank you very much in advance!!!

This http://www.softwareload.de/shop/google-earth-ddr-karte map installs as a Google Earth plugin. It is not very detailed, but shows the roads.

At http://www.autobahn-online.de/ddrautobahnen.html you can find the list of the Autobahns in DDR at the time of re-unity. The numbering is shown at http://home.arcor.de/abrob/DDR.html

Key:

1 - single carriageway
12 - built as double carriageway
2 - upgraded to double carriageway

As you can see, DDR did not build many new Autobahns, and many sections were single carriageway only. The transit routes connecting Berlin and BRD are exceptions: They were built by DDR and paid by BRD. The most important transit route was A24 Hamburg-Berlin. The construction work begun in 1930's but after the German division, it was put on hold until 1978.

So, I bought an ADAC "MaxiAtlas" - which is fabulous, if not cheap.
It shows "environmental zones" in several cities. What's that - something like London's congestion charge?

I've got the same atlas. A bit unhandy to use while driving though, it's simply too big. It won't even fit on the passenger seat if fold out to two pages.

The environmental zones are areas within cities where every car requires a sticker that indicates its environmental class (red, yellow and green). Some cities prohibited red or even yellow stickered vehicles. For instance, my 2004 Renault has a yellow sticker (due to the lack of a particle filter). An ADAC (the German motorist association) study found out these environmental zones have close to no effect at all. Some even argue it's illegal because it outlaws street-legal vehicles with annually OK'd emission standards. No tolls are required for entering these zones.

EDIT: sorry, I was late with the answer.


Worst... only eligible vehicles can access those areas. The system is based on four classes of engine pollution, and proof is given by a coloured sticker placed on the windshield (nothing/red/yellow/green).
Pollution classes are pretty tight, especially for diesel engines. You can upgrade your vehicle, e.g. applying a Particulate Filter, but this will only allow you one step up, and no more.
The city council can choose to give access only to the upper classes, some cities only allow green stickers.
Invalid or no sticker result in a €40 fine, both if the vehicle is in traffic or parked.

If the vehicle is eligible, obtaining a sticker should not be diffiult, you have to pay the provider (€ 5-15, I heard).

Exceptions are allowed very strictly, mainly for vehicles in service for handicapped people, historical vehicles, or people/businesses whose economic situation would be endangered by the purchase of a new vehicle. Cases of people whose work times don't allow the use of public transport are analyzed one by one.
No exemptions for foreign vehicles.

I don't know what the Germans think about this, but I think it is mainly a form of taxation and the typical "Hey, I'm so green!" eco-chic rule.
I believe that the problem in city centres is the number of vehicles in general, not the pollution of the oldest ones, which are only a few.
Forcing people to buy new vehicles and scrap perfectly working ones is an act against the environment, if you ask me.

I have to admit that my point is driven by a personal problem, since driving in Germany with my '94 motorhome has become a pain-in-die-arsch, and I cannot even reach places where I would park the van and ride public transport.
But in general I am more convinced by congestion charges, than by pollution classes.

At the moment I can reach no more the best campsites in Berlin and Stuttgart, and recently I drove in Bonn's umweltzone without even being aware (I was lucky).
Retrofitting a PF would take me from null to red class, which nowadays is valued as toilet paper.

You're absolutely right about that.
