Right.

For those of you who prefer the A61 route over A3: think again. Last week I did Mayrhofen-Holland twice via A3, never had any problems. A few roadworks between Frankfurt and Cologne, but nothing you can be sued for and I did Sneek-Mayrhofen in 8.5 hours. (10 including lunch breaks and fuel stops)

Yesterday I thought sod it. Let's take a different route. Let's use Fernpass and the left-Rhine route. First congestion at Ulm due to roadworks. 2nd one at the Zwabische Alb due to lane closure. 3rd one at Stuttgart due to lane closure. Sat there for over an hour as they were painting the crash barrier. 4th one at Heilbronn due to roadworks. 5th one at Koblenz, don't even know why. And the amount of roadworks... My God!

You can keep your ******* Stuttgart-Koblenz route, I'm going back on my A3 on Saturday.

This concludes my rant for the day.

Haha I did a similar lap, last week: Munich-Stuttgart-A81-Heilbronn-A61-Venlo-A73-A15-A2-Amsterdam

And back yesterday: Amsterdam-A2-A12-Arnhem-A3-A9-Munich

I don't like both to be fair, the stretch Augsburg - Stuttgart is almost one huge baustelle. The A61 also has some major parts with baustelle, but during rush hour there is hardly an increase in traffic on the A61. While the A3 especially between Oberhausen and Cologne and near Frankfurt completely clogs up in the morning and evening between 17-19u.

On the way back between Oberhausen and Munich via the A3/A9 I counted 16 road works. And especially on the A9 there is much more to come this summer. The left lane between Nürnberg and Ingolstadt is in very bad shape in some places. I had a large part where 2x3 went back to 2x2 on narrow lanes because they are repaving the whole autobahn. This will, especially in the weekends give major delays in the next few weeks / months.

However despite the road works the A9 between Nürnberg and München remains my favourite part of the journey and one of my favourite stretches of autobahn in Germany

Despite some roadworks I don't find the A3/A9 route all that bad. But perhaps I'm saying that because the A8,A61 route is so horrible. I've crossed the Venlo border as well last night. Last week I did the A3 route going home and got stopped by the Zoll in the Dinslaken area. (I'm on Austrian plates). So, in Holland again and hopefully I can go in peace on Saturday.

I think we're in for a long and troublesome summer if you're travelling around Munich a lot. A9 between Neufahrn and Muenchen-Nord is totally detoriated. Speedlimits is 80, and not before long they're gonna dig the ****** up...

The 2+1 upgrade of the B31 near Löffingen was completed today (OSM). It has a length of 2.4km. Also 2 bridges and a noise protection wall were built. Total costs: 7 million €. The plan approval order was passed in October 2009 and the construction began in April 2010. See press release.

The plan approval procedure for the next section from Löffingen to Rötenbach (3.5km; OSM) was started in late 2008. Construction could start in 2015 if there won't be further interference and if funds will be available.

Both sections are part of the B31 east-west connection in the black forest from Freiburg (A5) to Donaueschingen (A81).
The A86 plans were already canceled 30 years ago thus an upgrade of the existing B31 is in progress now.

AADT 2010:
AS Freiburg-Süd (A 5) – Freiburg, St. Georgen (B 3) 14800 / 696 (4,7%)
Freiburg, Tunnel Ganterknoten – AS Kirchzarten (L 126 / L 127) 33500 / 2546 (7,6%)
AS Kirchzarten (L 126 / L 127) – Kirchzarten (L 128) 17800 / 1691 (9,5%)
Kirchzarten (L 128) – Hinterzarten (B 500) 17200 / 2047 (11,9%)
Hinterzarten (B 500) – Titisee-Neustadt (B 317) 19900 / 2209 (11,1%)
Titisee-Neustadt (B 317) – Löffingen (L 170) 17400 / 2088 (12%)
Löffingen (L 170) – Hüfingen (L 171) 16900 / 2096 (12,4%)
Hüfingen (B 27) – Donaueschingen (K 5756) 7600 / 1178 (15,5%)

Here some pics of the A44 construction: > click <. Not very interesting, but if you want to see pics of a German Ax4, you have to settle for that cause there are no pics of the A94!

Don't worry, if I will find some A94 pics, I will share it for you!

A86 would have been an awesome highway.

If only all those annoying greens had moved to Mecklenburg or NRW...

I was using the American English expression as in "getting over their objections and building A86 regardless of their NIMBY-ism". I'm sure most people who oppose highways ultimately drives on them as well.

Sure. But I also think that enviromental issues need to be looked at. And in a democracy everyone has a right to oppose a motorway in their backyard. As someone on here once quite rightly pointed out: you cannot look at everything from a car-eccentric point of view, or in your case concrete.

B75 Hamburg "Wilhelmsburger Reichsstraße"

The plan approval order for the new 4-laned B75 from AS Hamburg-Georgswerder to AS Hamburg-Wilhelmsburg-South (OSM) was passed this week, see press release. It has a length of 4.8km. Costs: 136.6 million €. Time for completion: 4 years. The plan approval procedure was started in early 2011. Complaints by NIMBYs are most likely.

Hamburg project page: > click <.
DEGES project page: > click <.

The A252 (northern extension of the new B75) and the A253 (southern extension) will be rededicated after B75 completion. The future A26 will cross the B75 at its southern end (AS Hamburg-Wilhelmsburg-South).

B75 Hamburg

Ah, I happened to make photos there earlier this month.

The curve from the existing A252 to the new B75 next to the railways will be pretty tight.

New project page: http://www.buergerdialog-a33nord.de/. The plan approval procedure is assessed for 2016 to 2018, see time bar.
There is a flypast animation video which also shows the currently started section (Belm bypass). It contains 4(!) ecoducts on the last few meters in front of the A1.

During the DDR regime, were Western drivers free to drive anywhere within DDR, or only on designated routes to West Berlin?

I suppose it depended upon what type of visa they had.

Those I know had to follow a strict route and were not allowed to take any exits of the autobahn A9.

Someone here told me the same. And also that they were being often stopped by the DDR police and to get away had to give them bribes
