News:
- A49: construction of Frankenhain tunnel has started (first blasting ceremony was on 29th April); article and video; press release (BMVBS); press release (Hesse Mobil).

The tunnel compleation is scheduled for late 2015. Afterwards the technic will be installed. The tunnel has a length of 900m. The current construction job contains a 1600m long part of the road including junction AS Schwalmstadt. The currenct job costs 53 million €. The whole A49 section (VKE20; 1st section of 3 missing sections) has a length of 11.8km. Total costs: 205 million €. No further works are in progress, thus it is not possible to predict the opening date.

More news:
- Our Federal minister of Transport, Building and Urban Development Mr. Peter Ramsauer announced, that the 25km long A1 gap in the Eifel (between Cologne and Saarbrücken, OSM) will maybe be completed in 2023/24 or later. He said, this project is a paradigm for anachronism.

- The government of state Saarland announced, that it is currently expected to start construction of the 2nd A8 carriageway between AS Merzig/Wellingen and AS Merzig/Schwemlingen (OSM) by the year 2015 (Autobahn from Luxembourg to Saarbrücken). Thus there is no need to apply that project for the new BVWP 2015 (but the plan approval order has not yet started ).

- The A23 gap near Itzehoe is currently u/c (OSM). There is already one carrigeway in service since many years. The new construction started in 2007. It will be completed in late 2015. Length: 6.2km. Estimated costs: 140 million €. The main challenge is the viaduct over the Stör river. The first 1200m long viaduct is already in service, the old viaduct was demolished, and the 2nd new viaduct is currently u/c. The central 120m long steel part (1200 tonne) will be assembled on 7th May 2013 (see German press release). Page with many pics: > click < (April 2013 pics).

Only the "Hochstraße Findorff" has 1 lane. I had a little jam there thus I used the right lane. This lane goes lower, passes a roundabout and some lights. I've no idea which lane was faster.

That's not correct! See database of the 2005 and 2010 AADT: > click <. The data is based on the official data from BASt.

The section AS Bremen-Woltmershausen/Hohentorshafen - AS Bremen-Neustadt (B 75) was the busiest B6 section (73.700 vehicles per day) and the 6th busiest Bundesstraßen section in 2010.

The Nordwestknoten interchange also has only 1 lane for through traffic.

About the traffic data, it was claimed on Wikipedia I wondered if it was correct, because I thought B2R in München may be busier.

Agree.

The B2R is a inner city road, so it is not counted by BASt.

In 2005 there was a further counter point on the Stephanibrücke over the Weser river. The AADT was at 96.700 vehicles per day - position 1! (Source).

Never trust any statistics that you didn’t forge yourself .

A26 Stade - Hamburg

The future A26 will connect the future A20 with the A7 west of Hamburg and the A1 east of Hamburg.
The first of 8 sections is in service since October 2010. The A26 begins at AS Stade-South and ends at AS Horneburg (11.2km; 180 million €; OSM) Section 2 is u/c since summer 2006 (9.1km; OSM). Completion maybe in 2018.

Here some pics of the construction (taken by IOOI in April 2013):

Rural road overpass:





Precompression bank:



Junction AS Jork:














One more little bridge:

2nd rural road overpass:

A270 Bremen

The A270 is an east-west "Autobahn" in the city of Bremen. It was created in 2001 by upgrading the B74 to Autobahn status. The road itself was built in the 1960s. It is one of the most substandard Autobahnen in Germany, it lacks shoulders everywhere, the speed limit is no more than 80 km/h (even 60 eastbound) and the geometry is highly substandard. However, it serves its purpose well, as far as I could see only the traffic lights at the A27 interchange may be a congestion spot during rush hour, this is also the busiest segment of A270. There is no through traffic in this area.

The construction of the last section from Farge to AS Bremen-Rönnebeck was started in September 2007 and opened on 9th December 2009. This section has only one carriageway and is doveted as B74. It also contains a grade railroad crossing.

The 60km/h limit is caused by the bad pavement. It is only a short section near Vegesack and it was not yet limited in September 2012.

It is incredible, that the A270 is devoted as Autobahn, whereas many Bundesstraßen sections (B6n, B9, B10, B15n, B14, B27, B29, B30, B45, B49, B469,...) are only Yellow Autobahns!

Quick question. Is at the former tripoint DDR/BRD/CSSR some monument or something? I will be in Hof on Sunday, and thought to check it out. Is it accessible by car? Maybe until here? http://goo.gl/maps/DTnED

The best way to find stuff like that out is to use Google Earth and activate the panoramio layer. This way you can find out what's on such locations.

Thanks.

By Google Earth you mean on the Google Maps page to turn on the "Satellite" view? I did that, and also took a look on the pictures marked from Panoramio there

Google Earth is not Google Maps. Google Earth is a separate software program that allows much easier browsing of satellite imagery. You can turn on many more layers than in browser-based Google Maps, and you can also measure straight-line distances or paths. You can also view historical imagery.

Google Maps allows route planning and viewing static maps, but for all other purposes, Google Earth works much better.

A14

http://www.mz-web.de/mitteldeutschla...,22668878.html

http://www.bverwg.de/presse/pressemi...ahr=2013&nr=25

The high court in Leipzig has dismissed all appeals by BUND against the construction of the A14 in the state of Brandenburg. The court judged that the plans are sufficient to reduce impact on nature and environment. They also dismissed the appeals questioning the necessity of the Autobahn, which gives great precedent for the other segments of A14, which are more or less the same in character.

Plus the A 241 between Schwerin-Süd and Dreieck Schwerin. This section is now part of the A 14 though.

And not to forget the A 113/117 between Dreieck Treptow and Schönefelder Kreuz.
