A270 Bremen

A video of the A270 in Bremen, maybe the most substandard Autobahn of Germany.

An interchange with two Autobahns, but with only a B-level access between them?

Are there any more of those?

There are few similar interchanges in the US Interstate system. Most interesting is a discontinuation of I-70 in Breezewood, PA; where I-70 turns away from Pennsylvania Turnpike, than for a few hundred meters on US 30 to expressway I-70 as a bypass to interchange I-68 in Hancock, MD. Part of this interchange is a western terminus of abandoned PA Turnpike around Sideling Hill tunnel.

A281 Bremen

This video covers all of the A281 in the city of Bremen in both directions. The A281 currently consists of a short northern stub (2 km) and a central segment near the Airport and the Seaport of Bremen. A northern extension is currently under construction, but a toll tunnel under the Weser River is still in preparation phase. A southern extension should bring A281 to the Autobahnzubringer Arsten and connect it to A1.

A great aerial video of the new A14 AK Schwerin to AS Grabow: > click <. The construction is shown at 2:15 for the first time.

Construction began in November 2012. Completion is estimated for late 2015.

I have a question about B286 between A70 and A3 near Schweinfurt. What is the reason for placing "120" sign on singlecarriage road??? Isnt it highly dangerous?

I have no idea why the limit is 120, but the road was built as an highway to connect the important industrial town Schweinfurt with the A3 to Nürnberg. The road is not dangerous, but an accident black spot.

It was planned to have four lanes, wherefore the alignment is prepared for widening. The northern section from the A70 junction AS Schweinfurt-Center to AS Schwebheim (OSM) will be widened to 4 lanes. It is also planned to widen the B286 between Schwebheim and A3 junction AS Wiesentheid (OSM) to 3 lanes on 8 sections. It was announced to start construction in 2013, but nothing happened yet.

Official project page: > click <.

Unfortunately I never drove on that Lower Franconian road .

Anyway, the first 2.1 long stage for the B286 bypass of Rüdenhausen (south of the A3 junction) is currently u/c. The plan approval order was passed in May 2009. The construction works have started in July 2012. Completion is estimated for late 2014 (the route on OSM is wrong, see official project page). The second 0.8km long stage will be build by the Bavarian state.

The Czech section is also u/c, but there is a complaint by a dispossessed ground land owner (she wants a higher compensation). There is still no date announced regarding the hearing at the court. Thus it is unlikely that the road can be opened in 2013 (OSM).
The complaint was dismissed. Completion late 2014 (source CZ).

News:
- The Groundbreaking ceremony for 1st 5.0 long stage of the 17.5km long bypass of Münchhausen, Wetter and Lahntal-Göttingen (OSM) will be in July 2013 (see press release; official project page). Total estimated costs: 94 million € (older source: 98 million €). The southern part will get 4 lanes. Parts of the bypass are similar to the formerly planned A5 route. The plan approval procedure was started in November 2006, the order was passed in July 2012. It was challenged, but the NABU has withdrawn its complaint because "the population would suffer". A farmer also challenged, and I have no info if he has also withdrawn. Maybe it does not regard the 1st stage or the complaint has no suspensiveness.

- The 5.8km long B23 Garmisch bypass (OSM) - the Kramertunnel - is a project in Upper Bavaria. The plan approval procedure was started in April 2007, the order was passed in November 2007 (7 month only!). It was challenged but finally rejected in June 2009. Preliminary works started in 2010. The works for the reconnaissance tunnel showed difficulties with the geological conditions. Thus the costs rised up to at least 176 million €. The construction can be restarted at the earliest in 2015. Completion not before late 2018 (see press release; official project page).

- The construction of the B535 Schwetzingen and Plankstadt bypass was started in February 2002. The first and the second stage were already opened in 2006, the third stage in December 2010. The second stage has only one carriageway, also all overpasses were built for one carriageway. All other stages have two carriageways, but the construction of the 2nd carriageway for the 2nd stage have also started in the meantime. The overpasses must be replaced (OSM). It will be completed in 2015 (see press release; official project page). The B535 bypass is similar with the route of the formerly planned A655.

Thanks! Any news about Oberau Westumfahrung? I remember some works there in 2011 but as soon as München lost the bid for the Winter Olympics I think they were abandoned.
Is this Garmisch bypass project capable of reviving Oberau bypass too?

Well, no news since May 2012 regarding burden abolishment (see press release). These works were estimated to be finished in summer 2013. Costs: 7 million €.

Munich wants to make an application for the Winter Olympics 2022. If Munich would get the event, all projects could be implemented.

The 2-tubes B2 Auerbergtunnel north of Oberau (project page; OSM), the B2 Oberau bypass (2-tubes Tunnel Oberau; OSM) and the B23 Garmisch bypass (Kramertunnel; OSM) and the B2 Partenkirchen bypass (Wanktunnel; OSM). Estimated costs: more than 500 million €.

The plan approval procedure for the Aubergtunnel is running (since many years), the plan approval order for the B2 Oberau tunnel was passed in February 2010, and the plan approval procedure for the Wanktunnel could start after acceptance of the Olympic bit. Preliminary plannings for the B23 Oberau bypass are in progress (OSM).

Also the A8 widening and the B21 Bad Reichenhall bypass could be implemented (Kirchholztunnel and Stadtbergtunnel; OSM).

None of the winning design company websites include the total length of the bridge and the height of the main span on their website...

The addition plan approval order was challenged. The Federal Administrative Court rejected it, but attached a condition to an approval for temporary construction objects. An plan addition procedure started in April 2012, the order was passed last week (see press release).

Estimated costs for section 10: 219 million € (see press release). Note: there are 5 viaducts with a length between 50m and 280m. The 94m Regnitzbrücke was already replaced and widened some years ago.


The plan approval order for the A7 widening between AS Bad Bramstedt und der AS Kaltenkirchen (2x3 lanes; OSM) was passed on 30th April 2013. The last plan approval procedure between AD Bordesholm (A215) and AD Hamburg-Northwest (section AS Quickborn to state border Schleswig-Holstein/Hamburg) will be finished soon (within the next few weeks). The 7 sections (about 64km) will be built as PPP from 2014 to 2018.


The A12 from Berlin to Poland gets hard shoulders between AD Spreeau and AS Fürstenwalde-West (17km; OSM). The plan approval order was passed in August 2011. The construction started 2 weeks ago. Completion 2018. See video.

Maybe the data will be published on the official project page in the future. But I guess the length was about 400m.

It's highly doubtful that the bridge would be under 1 kilometer long, if the bridge deck is 53 meters above the water level. Even an 8% ramp requires a 660 + 350 + 660 m bridge.

Well, I think reading the press release is better than wild guess .

"Die neue Hochbrücke wird eine Länge von rund 535m haben."

The 535m are maybe w/o the ramps?

No, further article: > click <.

"Die Spannweite über Wasser beträgt 350m, die lichte Durchfahrthöhe 53m, genauso viel wie bei der Köhlbrandbrücke"

Costs: 176 million €. Costs for the entire 9.7km long motorway between A7 and A1: > 600 million €.
