If I remember correctly, A8 west of München till, more or less, Augsburg is made of concrete.

A4 and A8 actually have rather similar traffic volumes, around 45.000 - 55.000 vehicles per day, though A4 briefly dips to 30.000 east of Gera.

From Jena a new alignment of A4 is under construction and the traffic goes on the old alignment (which is 2+2 without shoulders).

81.


The motorway will go to the right here through the tunnel:

A4 on the actual alignment. Does anybody know what will happen with it after the construction of new A4 is finished?
83.


85.


86.

Unfortunately the Jagdbergtunnel has been significantly delayed. Construction started in 2008 and was to be completed in mid-2012, but has been delayed to mid-2014. The overall roadworks in Jena started in 2004.

Yes, you must follow Frankfurt signs on A7, then A5 and from Giessen A45 towards Dortmund. Then you join A4 at Kreuz Olpe Sud.

To me German motorways are NOT the best in the world. Obviously never been in France. And have you REALLY driven on ALL autobahns in Germany apart from the A17? Then surely who know the way "against" Aachen or Frankfurt...
