Selfkant - Heinsberg - Jülich - Euskirchen - Bonn - Rosbach.

A562 in Bonn is also a part of this route.

Interesting. Is part of the A3 a part of the (previously) planned route? Looking at the map, I don't see why the A562 is not extended east to the A3.

Today it's exactly 77 years ago the A5 Frankfurt - Darmstadt opened to traffic. It is usually considered to be the first true public motorway of Europe and the world, though discussions about the definition of the first motorway are of course neverending

Is there a list of all planned, approved and u/c projects regarding the German Autobahn?

Unfortunately autobahn-online appears to have been updated last in 2009. There is also a forum which I used to participate in years ago, but it has little activity nowadays (especially for a country as big as Germany).

As far as I know this is the most up to date map of German motorway plans:

A95 southbound:



Loved that drive. Beautiful scenery, no speed limit (except in those roadworks) and low traffic.

The activity is quite OK. Just don't compare it with the 'wegenforum'.

This is still the best site about Autobahnen:
http://autobahnatlas-online.de/index_e.html

More up to date is only OpenStreetMap.

He was asking for motorway construction plans, not route information.

I was checking yesterday at 2 pm. Not a single message was posted by that time that day... If you exclude the updates by MichH, there is hardly any activity in the main forums... Autobahn-Online forum needs to be updated, it looks archaic.

I don't know if this has been posted already, but during the Cold War many Autobahns had parts that could be converted into an military airstrip in case of war. In 1984 the A29, which was then newly constructed, was converted into an airstrip for an exercise.

For this alternative video of the Autobahn, please look here:

two weeks ago, I drove down A40 in the Ruhr area and saw this sign. As far as I know, the "Bochumer Aussenring" was intended to be upgraded to a three-digit-A-number and not A44 ?! When I passed the location today, the A44-shield was deleted.
Does anybody have some news about the numbering?

I've read it was supposed to be the A448.

These things are callled "Warnschwellen" and they are used for several years now. Their task is to make construction works on autobahns safer. A driver who hits these Warnschwellen will surely take notice that there is a construction site in front of him and probably don´t crash into it (like happened ofter before).

MORE INFORMATION (IN GERMAN)

Very simple and useful equipment, seeing for the first time on D-bahn.

Thank you Deadeye.
