Well, at least you live along among one of the finest motorways in Germany. Now that they've nearly completed all the roadworks, the A3 is the best route to travel between Austria and NRW. A lot better than that pig bastard swine of a A8...

Yeah, about that... They are planning to start widening the A 3 to 3 lanes in each direction between Kreuz Regensburg and Neutraubling so expect further delays around here for another decade. Traffic around Regensburg (both on the A 3 and especially the A 93) is a complete, unregulated mess.

Now they've built an Eastern detour and instead of making it 2x2 and with interchanges it's a regular country road that can't handle the existing traffic. The planners around here deserve being beaten to death with a wet towel... *grrrrrr*

Well, A3 for me starts at Nürnberg. I'm only in the Regensburg area when travelling from Calais to mainland Austria, so no problems there

What Eastern detour? Do you mean the Osttangente?

I know every time I drove Regensburg-Ingolstadt, the traffic was slow unitl A93. The other way around it was better. I also went on some local roads, only to avoid stop and go, wasn't really quicker though, because of jams in Regensburg and area.

So you are talking about "my A3" Aschaffenburg-Würzburg(-Fürth/Erlangen). Only 53km feature 2x3. About 120km are still 2x2. That's far away from completion! Even the missing 41km b/n AB and WÜ will not be completed until 2020 (or 2025).

Edit: Sorry, you are usually driving at night, aren't you? Driving on the A3 is absolutely great at night (200+) .

The PPP was tendered, see press release. Contract time: 30 years. Construction time: 2016-2019. Length of road to be built: 33km. Length of road to be operated: 77km. See also tender.
There are four candidates. They will probably be asked in May 2014 to deliver a practical bid until late 2014. The PPP contract shall be placed in late 2015.

I travel both day and night, and I actually quite like the 2x2 bit with overtaking lorries. To me it's a nice change of pace before blasting after the Aschaffenburg tunnel again.

The Stuttgart route is way too much of a drain to me, with roadworks, congestion, slow speeds etc etc.

[...]

The 8th section (5.2) from AS Rötha to AK Leipzig (A38) has a length of 7.2km (OSM). The plan approval procedure was started in 2011, its end is estimated for 2013. Here does already exist a 4-laned road.
The plan approval order for the last A72 section was recently passed. The Saxony Minster of Transport hopes for funding in 2014 by the Federal Government, see press release.

A31 Emstunnel

Workers accidentally bored through the floor of the Ems Tunnel (near Leer) during renovations, causing the tunnel to leak 500 liters of water per minute. They are now figuring out how to stop the water from pouring into the tunnel.

The Ems Tunnel is a twin-tube immersed tube tunnel under the Ems River. It opened to traffic in 1989. There is no additional impact on traffic due to this leak, because the tube was already closed for renovations.

No, I mean the newly built "Pilsen Allee" which connects the "Osttangente" on the northern bank of the Donau with the B 16 near Wenzenbach. It creates a new eastern bypass for Regensburg.

How is the status of the final short gap on A66 near Neuhöf (south of Fulda)?

It is delayed to September 2014.

I remember the first trip I took with my current car in August 2008, I drove all of A45 & A66. It was already under construction then (evidently it's been under construction since October 2005).

But we don't have any beach towels to use... Nor do we have any cute girls for a wet T-shirt contest either...

Come to think of it, we didn't even get a funny reply from Chris, either.
