The 2nd stage of the B20 Furth bypass (b/n tunnel and CZ border; OSM; 1.8km; 30 million €) was opened on 5th September. The 1st stage (including tunnel) is in service since March 2012 (OSM; 2.5km; 45 million €). The plan approval order was passed in September 2006 and the construction was started in 2007.

Seehofer's proposal was to introduce toll for foreign cars. And Merkel said about that: 'We'll find a solution'. I think it's clear that she's not talking about finding a solution for increasing prices of electricity :-)

The newspaper article is about the wired hustings: The costs for the Pastetten-Heldstein section are about 350 million €. The 2014 federal budget draft contains an item for the PPP project. The designated costs are 900 million €. The Green party is supposing an affair... Well, the 900 million € also comprise the operation and maintenance costs for 30 years...

It was not allowed to drive with an own car to the groundbreaking ceremony because the ceremony location is in the middle of a nature protection area. Thus a shuttle service was introduced. Here a short vid (in German) to clarify this weird thing: > click <.

The A45 Lennetalbrücke groundbreaking ceremony was on 11th September 2013 (105 million €; OSM; completion 2017/18), see press release. AADT 80,000 vehicles per day. The new viaduct will be able to serve 2x3 lanes.


The A62 has only one carriageway b/n AS Bann and AS Pirmasens (~20km). A 3.6km long part is now been upgraded to 2x2 (4.7 million €; OSM). The works for the 2nd carriageway began on 12th September 2013. There was NO groundbreaking ceremony, only a simple press release. The construction time is one year. The section begins south of AS Weselberg and ends north of the Schwarzbachtalbrücke viaduct. The plan approval order (July 1983) is still legal.


The groundbreaking ceremony for the replacement and widening of the A643 "Schiersteiner Brücke" was on 11th September 2013 (2,5km; 206 million €; OSM). See press release. The viaduct has a length of 1,280m. The A643 is upgraded from 2x2 to 2x3. The viaduct connects Wiesbaden (Hesse) and Mainz (Rhineland-Palatinate). The Hesse plan approval order was passed in January 2012, the Rhineland-Palatinate plan approval order was passed in February 2012. The new viaduct will be built until 2015/16. In 2016 the old viaduct will be demolished and the 2nd new viaduct will be built until late 2019. The current viaduct is in need of rehabilitation, the speed limit for trucks is reduced to 60kph. A modification of the interchange "Schiersteiner Kreuz" is also included in the project. AADT 90,000 vehicles per day. Project page: > click <.

They splitted the 3.8km long section into 2 phases. The groundbreaking ceremony for the 2nd phase will be on 23th August 2013. A state secretary of the Federal Ministry of Transport will participate.
The estimated completion date of the 2nd phase is now 2018.


The groundbreaking ceremony for the first section of the B96 Neubrandenburg bypass was on 29th August 2013 (3.6km; 52.8 million €; OSM; b/n B104 and B96). The entire 10.3km bypass costs 115 million €, see press release. The plan approval procedure for the first (of three) section was started in 2011. I have no information when the plan approval order for section 1 was passed (was announced for May 2013). There is also no information about completion.


The groundbreaking ceremony for the B245 Bebertal bypass was on 4th September 2013 (4.8km; 10 million €; OSM; completion 2016), see press release. Preliminary works were already done in the last months. There was no need for a plan approval procedure.

Happened, see press release. Completion: 2017. The B311 Unlingen bypass construction will start in spring 2014 according to a further press release. The plan approval order was passed in September 2009.

Lots of groundbreaking ceremonies. Are there upcoming elections?

I wonder why the construction of the B480 around Bad Wünnenberg needs 6 or 7 years of construction. It's possible to do this in 3-4 years, maybe even less.

I wonder why generally all German projects need so long. The reason is lack of money in relation to the number of groundbreakings. The slow progress also results in higher total costs. That's Germany...

Openings

Well, there are not only groundbreaking ceremonies but also opening ceremonies.

Chris has already posted one:

The 2nd opening within the last weeks was the completion of B47 Rhine viaduct near Worms (OSM). It is the only Rhine viaduct b/n Mainz and Mannheim (about 50km). The old 745m long viaduct was opened in 1953 (the forehore brigdes were built in 1900). The AADT is over 23,000 vehicles per day thus a 2nd viaduct were built until 2008. Afterwards the old viaduct was renovated and now opened for traffic. 4 lanes are in service since 12th September 2013. The renovation costed 13.6 million €. See press release.

Further improvements of the B47 b/n A61 and A67 are also planned (since decades).

A44 Kassel - Eisenach

The potential for future groundbreaking ceremonies has also grown:

The plan approval order for the section A44 AS Sontra-Nord to AS Sontra-Ulfen (OSM) was passed one week ago, see press release. The 10.8km section contains 3 tunnels (1647m, 686m and 300m) and 5 viaducts (550m, 300m, 200m and 2x 100m). Total costs: 275 million €. Up to now all A44 plan approval orders were challenged...

The last section w/o building permit is the section b/n A7 and Helsa (OSM). There are still discussions about the route.

B27 Donaueschingen - Hüfingen

More potential:

The plan approval order for the B27 b/n AS Donaueschingen (L180) and AS Hüfingen (B31) was passed, see press release. It is planned to built a 2nd carriageway (2x2 with hard shoulders) and grade-separated intersections. The section has a length of 4.1km. Costs: 22.9 million € (OSM). The B27 already has 2x2 lanes (plus hard shoulders) b/n Donaueschingen and Bad Dürrheim. The B27 is on the formerly planned A83 route. There is also an intersection with the A864 (Ex-A86). The AADT is about 20,000 vehicles per day on the approved section and b/n 26,000 and 33,000 vehicles on the 2x2 sections (> click <).
