Correct. See BVerwG press release. Two complaints were allowed, five complaints were rejected, one complaint was already cancelled by the complainer.

The Schleswig-Holstein Ministry of Transport also published a press release. The additional plan approval procedure will take at least 2 years.

The states coalition contract planned to build A20 section 3 (near Bad Segeberg, which was mentioned above) and section 4 (plan approval order is announced to be passed in late 2013) until 2017. Section 4 ends at the A7 nearby Bad Bramstedt. The funding for section 3 (150 million €) is still available and could be relocated.

More information: A20 overview in German forum, A20 project page Schleswig-Holstein, A20 project page Lower Saxony.

A20 north of Hamburg

The six missing A20 sections in Schleswig-Holstein have still no valid plan approval orders.

I want to show you a little overview of the announcements of the last 1 1/2 years:

Minister Jost de Jager (CDU) announced by an official press release on 30th April 2012 that all plan approval orders will be passed until end of 2012. The motive was that the order for section 3 was passed.

The election for the new Landtag was on 6th May 2012. SPD, Greens and SSW won and constituted the new government.

The press officer of the new Minster Meyer (SPD) said on 20th June 2012: The plan approval order for section 7 will be passed until end of 2012 in best case. The orders for section 4, 5 and 6 will probably be passed until early 2013 or mid of 2013.

I checked the official A20 Schleswig-Holstein project page (October 2012 version / October 2013 version):

Section 4 (procedure beginning: July 2009): 3rd quarter 2013 / end of 2013
Section 5 (procedure beginning: October 2010): 3rd quarter 2014 / end of 2014
Section 6 (procedure beginning: May 2008): 3rd quarter 2014 / end of 2014
Section 7 (procedure beginning: December 2007): 3rd quarter 2014 / end of 2014
Section 8 (procedure beginning: May 2009): 3rd quarter 2013 / 1st quarter 2014 (Elbtunnel section)

A20 north of Hamburg

Section 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 have a total length of 69.3km. The total costs are 663 million €. 9.6 million € per kilometer. Schleswig-Holstein is plain land.

Section 8 which contains a 5,671m tunnel under the river Elbe has a length of 12.3km and costs about 1.1 billion €. About 90 million € per kilometer.

The plan approval orders are still not passed (modifications still possible e.g. caused by complaints) and costs are usually increasing - especially due to postponing construction start (inflation). I think the final costs of sections 3 to 7 will be at least 20% higher than announced.

Could section 4 be affected by the cancelled plan approval of section 3 in regards to alignment etc?

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).
The B47n southern Worms bypass (2.3km; 2x2; 22 million €; construction time: 3 years; OSM; project page) has a valid plan approval order!The first plan approval procedure was started in 1977. The current procedure was started in late 2007 and the order was passed in January 2011. It was challenged but the complaint was lately dismissed. The construction cannot be started b/c funding is not yet available.

It is also planned to upgrade the existing western B47n extension to the A61 interchange AS Worms (1.0km; 2x2; plan approval order: July 1973; OSM).

There are also 3 planned projects on Hesse side (project page). After completion the B47 would be a 2x2 grade-separated connection b/n A61 and A67/A5.

The B47 Rosengarten bypass has a length of 3.6km (OSM). The plan approval procedure was started in December 2009.
The upgrade of the B47 Bürstadt bypass has a length of 4.6km (OSM). The plan approval order was passed in December 1971 (but only the first carriageway was built).
The upgrade b/n Bürstadt and Lorsch has a length of 3.0km (OSM). The plan approval procedure was started in December 2010.

Nordrhein-Westfalen is phasing out exonyms. Arnheim is being replaced by Arnhem and Nimwegen is replaced by Nijmegen. Likewise, the Netherlands uses Köln on the signs, not Keulen (and Aachen instead of Aken).

Yes, see map:

source: shz.de

Red: current route.

The Federal Administrative Court has instructed to examine the southern variants. Both would affect section 4 which begins at the B206 west of Wittenborn. Both are worse for the main relation Kiel-Lübeck (north to east) and are less effective to traffic.

The Schleswig-Holstein Prime Minister Albig said that the northern variant will also be examined. This route would cost at minimum 32 million € more than the current route (150 million €) also if the Bad Segeberg tunnel would have a length of only 200 meter.

On the Frankfurter Kreuz not all roads are A, but it's Autobahnkreuz.
Autobahns should be 4-way. 3-way is "Autobahndreieck"

That's why there are such interchanges as Autobahndreieck Kreuz Oranienburg or Autobahndreieck Kreuz Uckermark. On the other hand, is Autobahnkreuz Bad Oeynhausen, and according to the rule should be Autobahndreieck.
