A little guess the Autobahn. This photo was taken in Germany in 1977, but the location is unknown.

All I know is the caption;
"noise barriers in the Netherlands and Germany, set of 37 photos".
It was taken 11-11-1977.

B317 "Zollfreistraße"

The so-called "Zollfreistraße" (costums-free road) was opened for traffic today. The route is on Swiss territory and connects the German towns of Weil am Rhein and Lörrach (OSM). The road has a length of 735m and contains a 570m tunnel. The first contract b/n Germany and Switzerland was signed 155 years ago. The final treaty was signed in 1977 and the German plan approval order was passed in 1981. The construction was started in 2006 - after years of protest. Total costs: 59 million €.

The planning lastetd 155 years, so I think the 7.5 years construction period are quite ok compared to that.

The green near Frankfurt on the A5 shouldn't be there. The A5 between Frankfurt and Darmstadt was completely blocked between friday evening and ca 2 pm today due to two bridges being disassembled near Darmstadt and roadworks near Frankfurt. Traffic was rerouted via A3 / A67 with a 25 km detour.

yes, traffic was a mess on friday and saturday, especially around frankfurter kreuz. Probably more people on the road than predicted after the holiday! But today, everything was fine again.

A7, bridge over the Nord-Ostsee-Kanal (Kiel Canal), near Rendsburg.
I knew this bridge was closed for trucks but I was in Denmark this Sunday so I have personal experiences now.
The bridge is in a very bad state so the authorities made three restrictions:
- Vehicles over 7.5t are not allowed to use the bridge
- Max. speed is 60 km/h, constant speed checks are installed
- Only one lane per direction may be used, the outside lane of the bridge is closed in both sides.

At the last exit before the bridge (in both directions) there's only one lane free directed to the bridge, with a speed limit of 40 km/h. The police check the vehicles contstantly so that not any heavy truck can go to the bridge. Traffic is very congested, especially before those checkpoints. In rush hours a delay of one hour is pretty expectable.

Additionally the Rendsburg tunnel under the canal is under reconstruction so that only one tube can be used right now (2×1 lanes), having now an AADT of 60.000. I have no experiences about the situation there, but in the newspaper I read that in rush hours trucks may expect a delay of two hours.

Drove the A61 again today and what a nightmare. Baustelle every 20 kilometers, average speed compared to the last time I drove there dropped by at least 30-40 km/h over 200 km length and that without any major delays or jams. Will drive back via A3 for sure.

Another update: On the A5 between Basel and Karlsruhe the last 50 km before Karlsruhe are nearly finished as 2x3 (was 2x2). Hopefully the extra lanes open to traffic soon!

Wouldn't it have been easier to just claim that Herrenwald back from Switzerland, who cares about that piece of land with some trees anyway.
