A14 Schwerin - Magdeburg

The 154km long new Autobahn from Schwerin (A24) to Magdeburg (A2) transits the states Mecklenburg-West Pomerania ("McPom"; 25km), Brandenburg (32km) and Saxony-Anhalt (97km). The A14 is partly funded by EU.

The first 16.2km long section from AK Schwerin to AS Ludwigslust-Süd is currently under construction (140 million €). The works have started in November 2012 and are estimated to be completed end of 2015.

The next 9.8km section to AS Groß Warnow has building law. The plan-approval order was passed in November 2012. The construction is expected to start in 2014.

The northern Brandenburg section from AS Groß Warnow to AS Karstädt has a length of 12.6km and is challenged by BUND and the district Prignitz. The BVerwG trial is on 23rd April 2013, see BVerwG. The official start of construction will be in summer 2013 - but the works are already in progress (90 million €).

The plan-approval procedures for the next sections are in progress:
- AS Karstädt to AS Wittenberge (17.5km)
- AS Wittenberge to border Brandenburg/Saxony-Anhalt (2.0km)
- Border Brandenburg/Saxony-Anhalt to AS Vielbaum (8.8km; 141 million €)
All orders are announced for 2013.

It is planned to start the plan-approval procedure for the following 16.8km section from AS Vielbaum to AS Osterburg in the first half of 2013 (111 million €).

The next plan-approval procedures are already in progress:
- AS Osterburg to AS Uenglingen (18.2km; 133 million €)
- AS Uenglingen to AS Lüderitz (12.9km; 146 million €)

The next two plan approval orders are challenged (among others by BUND):
- AS Lüderitz to Dolle (12.5km; 72.6 million €)
- Dolle to AS Colbitz (10.8km; 77 million €)
The BVerwG trials will be in 2014. It is planned to build both section in common.

The section from AS Colbitz to AS Wolmirstedt is already under construction since November 2011 (5.7km; 49 million €). The completion will be end of 2014.

The 4-laned and grade-seperated B189 begins near the AS Wolmirstedt and closes the gap to the A2. But there is also a A14 section planned. The plan-approval procedure is in progress. This stretch is going to the current end of the A14 at AS Dahlenwarsleben north of Magdeburg.

I have a question regarding the route between Kassel and Eisenach. Now the A44 between the two cities is under construction and/or planned, what will happen to the nearby A4 which still lacks emergency lanes (e.g. near Bad Hersfeld)?

The A4 widening to 3 lanes in each direction is further demand within the BVWP 2003. But some A4 sections are already planned, u/c or even completed (map) for safety and maintenance reasons. The blue lines mark the 3rd lane which will be added. More information on the project page of Hessen Mobil (German).

Also a good overview provides (like always) autobahnatlas-online.de. The # marked sections will be widened to 3 lanes. The ~ marked sections will not be widened during the next few years. The Talbrücke Wommen is already expanded for 3 lanes in each direction, but will not be used until the A44 is opened.

Speaking of the A4, i wonder what will happen with the missing sector between Siegen and Kirchheim (interchange with A7)?
Are there any plans to build it?

That missing link is not included in any road plan. I don't think it'll ever be constructed, though the route via Gießen may be useful to optimize.

No. All plans for a Autobahn are cancelled!

The A45 will be widened to 3 lanes in each direction in the next years. I am not sure what will happen with the A5. Maybe it will not be necessary to widen it when the A49 will be finished soon (in 2040).

Count me among those who believe that the A4 should eventually be completed -- though not immediately as there are higher priorities.

The A4 is only a dream .

But smaller non-Autobahn projects are planned instead of the A4:
- B508 Kreuztal bypass (~2km; 2+1; OSM; plan-approval procedure in progress since October 2010)
- B508 Kreuztal-East to Lützel-West B62 (~10km; 2+1; OSM; planned)
- B508 Lützel bypass is cancelled and replaced by B62 widening Lützel-East to Erndtebrück-West (~4km; 2+1; OSM; planned)
- B62 Lützel-East to Erndtebrück-East B480 (~7km; 2+1; OSM; planned)

The road authority Straßen.NRW announced to present the new concept in spring 2013.

The A4 was still in the Hesse part of the BVWP 2003. It is submitted to replace the A4 in the new BVWP 2015 through a new Bundesstraße from Erndtebrück to Frankenberg:


Source: Waldeckische Landeszeitung - Frankenberger Zeitung

Also some B62 bypasses were contained in the BVWP 2003. But both NRW and Hesse has not yet presented their submit list for the BVWP 2015.

A3 from Passau to Regensburg, not really the best surface, drove today there, especially the part till after Deggendorf, second Danube bridge. Really bumpy.
In comparison A93 from Regensburg was pretty much good.

A49 Kassel - Gemünden (A5)

The A49 connects Kassel and Northern Germany with Frankfurt and the whole south-west Germany. The future A49 route is a little bit shorter and will not be as hilly as the existing A7/A5. That's a big advantance especially for trucks.

There are still 3 sections of the A49 left (see www.autobahnatlas-online.de). The length of the missing link has a length of 42.4km.

The first section from the A49-end at AS Neuental to AS Schwalmstadt is under construction since March 2011. The stretch has a length of 11.8km and costs 205 million €. The Federal Government published an answer last week, that they still cannot announce a completion date (see here in German).

So far 9 million € were invested (end of 2010 to 2012). In 2013 the A49 is getting 20.2 million €. This money is used to build the Frankenhain tunnel (899m). Also 4 viaducts are within this stage (170m, 252m, 259m and 285m).

The plan approval order was passed in September 2007. It was challenged. The complaint was withdrawn in May 2009.
Official project page: > click < (German); A further project page: > click < (German, with some pics); OSM.

The 2nd section from AS Schwalmstadt to AS Stadtallendorf has a length of 13.3km and contains 2 big viaducts (197m and 310m). It costs 130 million €. The plan approval order was passed in January 2012. It is challenged.
Official project page: > click <; OSM.

The last stretch from AS Stadtallendorf to AD Gemünden is 17.4km long and costs 235 million €. It contains 4 big viaducts (180m, 235m, 350m, 460m). The plan approval order was passed in May 2012 and - of course - it is challenged .
Official project page: > click <; OSM.

The expected AADT is about 35.000 vehicles per day.

By "it is defendant" you mean that the project decision (Planfeststellungsbeschluß) is appealed to? (Klage). For example, BUND appealing against the decision to build a new motorway.

I've been following German road projects as well and I am always surprised lawmakers are still hoping nobody will appeal against a motorway project. You always have to count on the fact that somebody will appeal against it. You cannot execute a project without affecting someone or someone's interests.

The key is to produce a rock-solid Planfeststellungsbeschluß so that any appeal will fail. They did a good job with this in the Netherlands, all decisions to widen or build a new motorway are appealed to, but every single one of them failed. They are now so confident they even start the works before the judge has issued a verdict on the case.

Yes. I thought that "defendant" is better (beklagt) as "appealed" (in Berufung gehen). Anyway.

The first complaints were successful, so the authority had to learn .
Now every plan-approval procedure takes much longer than before, and the costs are increasing

The main problem is the EU law (Habitats Directive). I am not sure if every EU country has the same big problem with that shit.

I used to post on the Autobahn-online forum, but I think my last post was at least 7 years ago. My German is okay, but my grammar is not as good. I am currently just reading it from time to time, unfortunately the forum has a bit outdated layout. It's not as busy as you'd expect from a nation of over 80 million people.

Besides that, I also use news.google.de and press releases of BMVBS and several state road authorities (like Strassen.NRW, Autobahndirektion Süd/Nordbayern and Hessen Mobil).

A33 Osnabrück - Bielefeld

The A33 connects the A1 (Bremen - Dortmund with the A2 Dortmund - Hannover and the A44 Dortmund - Kassel (see www.autobahnatlas-online.de). There are still 2 gaps near Osnabrück and near Bielefeld.

The first section from the A1 (AD Osnabrück-North) to AS Belm is planned in a early stadium. It has a length of 9.2km (82 million €). There is a big resistance to that link by NIMBYs .
Project page: > click <; OSM.

The next section is a part of the Belm bypass. 2.2km will have a motorway standard, 4.5km will get B51. Preliminary works have started in January 2013. The official groundbreaking will probably be in 2013 (costs: 66 million €; money for 2013: 3 million €).
Project page: > click <; OSM.

The section from AS Osnabrück-Schinkel to AS Hardenberg was opened in 1983 (7.4km). The 4.3km to AS Burgloh/Kloster Oesede in 1986. The next stretch to AS Hilter in 1988 (6.7km), and to AS Dissen/Bad Rothenfelde in 1996 (3.3km). The last 7.2km stretch to the current A33-end at AS Borgholzhausen was opened in 2001.

The 3rd section which is left, begins at AS Borgholzhausen and ends at AS Halle-Künsebeck. The plan approval order was passed in June 2011 and challenged by BUND. The action was dismissed in November 2012, construction started in December 2012. The completion is estimated for 2019. The stretch is 12.6km long and costs 140 million €. It contains 6 green bridges for wild animals. OSM

The last section from AS Halle-Künsebeck to AS Bielefeld-Center has a length of 7.9km and costs about 90 million €. The plan approval order was passed in June 2006. Construction started in September 2009. OSM. The completion will be in 2016.

The 6.5km stretch from AS Bielefeld-Center to AK Bielefeld was opened in December 2012 (OSM). Work has started in June 2007. This construction contained also a 1.5km long B61 stretch and costed 125 million €.
Project page for the 3 NRW sections: > click <.

The A33 from AK Bielefeld to AK Wünnenberg-Haaren was opened between 1980 and 1993.
