That's why there are such interchanges as Autobahndreieck Kreuz Oranienburg or Autobahndreieck Kreuz Uckermark.
But why some names are shortened to "Kreuz Xxxx", and others to "Dreieck Yyyy"? I understand "Kreuz Oranienburg is justified by expressway on 4-th way.

There is no general rule in Germany and there is also no general rule in Brandenburg (Kreuz Oranienburg / Dreieck Barnim). I guess it is arbitrariness or simply Germany .

Therefore, it so called. A10/A111/B96 is an Autobahndreieck named "Kreuz Oranienburg" and A11/A20/B166 is an AD named "Kreuz Uckermark".
Only I have no idea why A7/A70/B26a, A2/A30/B514, etc. are Autobahnkreuzen.
I see that MichiH also doesn't know why.

It was to be Autobahndreieck named "Kreuz Barnim", but I see that it has changed.

The plan addition procedure was also challenged, but the Federal Administrative Court has recently rejected it . The subject was a bridge over the B19 south of the AS Würzburg-Heidingsfeld which was enlarged by 16m (28m --> 44m) w/o an additional environmental review. The bridge was already completed in the meantime .

The project page contains a time schedule:
September 2012: start of preliminary construction
Mid 2014: start of Talbrücke Heidingsfeld construction
Early 2015: start of Katzenberg tunnel construction and begin of all works on the entire section
Late 2018: Completion
The calculation of costs (170 million €) was done in 2008. A new calculation made 221 million € now. 21 million are caused by general increase. The further extra costs are caused by higher technical and creative requirements for the Talbrücke Heidingsfeld and the Katzenbergtunnel.

Additionally the completion has moved to late 2019. The March 2013 announcement was late 2018. The September 2012 announcement was late 2017.

I drove there a couple of years ago. I believe the Zschopau bypass has a speed limit of 130 km/h.

Does Germany have plans to increase use of E-fuels (E10, E25 etc)?

Are there any national website that shows prices of fuels on fuel stations along highways?

Yes. Every gas station MUST report its prices since last summer.

There are a lot of German mid and small size cities building bypasses. I wish Italy and France were following suit. These bypasses are helpful to everyone: faster through taffic, city streets become less busy especially with trucks...

Yes. I've reported about some bypasses in November. Here a list showing their number of inhabitants:

Düren 89,000 inhabitants (B56/B399)
Worms 80,000 inhabitants (B47)
Schwäbisch Gmünd 58,000 inhabitants (B29)
Bad Oeynhausen 48,000 inhabitants (A30)
Luckenwalde 20,000 inhabitants (B101)
Reinheim 16,000 inhabitants (B38)
Hofgeismar 15,000 inhabitants (B27)
Aerzen 10,000 inhabitants (B1)

But Loy (B211), Rosengarten (B47) and Kuhbier (B189) are much smaller .

The city of Bad Oeynhausen has 48,000 inhabitants.

The German Autobahn network extension 2013 is 40.8km.

No. The first section b/n Bad Oeynhausen-North and Dehme will have no effect to the Netherlands traffic. Look at the map .

The entire bypass will be opened in 2016 (or later).

The plan-approval procedures for the next sections are in progress:
- AS Karstädt to AS Wittenberge (17.5km)
- AS Wittenberge to border Brandenburg/Saxony-Anhalt (2.0km)
- Border Brandenburg/Saxony-Anhalt to AS Vielbaum (8.8km; 141 million €)
All orders are announced for 2013.
The plan approval order for the latter section is postponed to 2014. It is announced to be passed maybe in first half-year 2014. It could also have effect to the 2km long Elbe crossing section.

The plan approval documents for the section Osterburg-Uenglingen have been modified and are laying out again.
