If I go to an office where they issue Umweltplakettes, with car registration documents in one hand and 5 euro in the other, there's not much more to say...

My (albeit limited experience) is different. The fact that you are English and I'm German may play into this as well. Thank goodness I'm not deterred by this and do travel to France without fear whenever I please, unlike many of my countrymen. And my French is limited to very basic vocabulary and no grammar whatsoever

Not to Marburg, but to A5 near Alsfeld. The new stretch is divided in 3 stretches (VKEs or Verkehrskosteneinheiten / traffic cost units).

* VKE20 Neuental - Schwalmstadt: 11.8 km, U/C since 15/03/2011
* VKE30 Schwalmstadt - Stadtallendorf: 13.3 km
* VKE40 Stadtallendorf - Dreieck Gemünden (A5): 17.5 km

VKE30 and 40 are in planning. The plan approval order of VKE30 was signed in 2012. Signing the p.a.o. of VKE40 was planned for 2012 as well, but I'm not sure whether this actually happened.

The new minister of transport and urban development is Alexander Dobrindt (left). He is the successor of Peter Ramsauer (right). Both are from the Bavarian CSU party.

edit: photo was changed, it now only shows Dobrindt.

A281 Bremen

MichiH, do you have any idea when the red segment of A281 on this map will open? I believe it was originally planned for December 2013.

Drove via Ulm to Stuttgart yesterday over the A8, the ausbau between Ulm and Gruibingen is under way on most parts. Especially the first part from exit 62 to exit 61 looks on track to open next year as 2x3.

The project page has announced 2014 since at least February 2012. It was modified to September 2014 in the meantime (click on "Ausblick").

The section b/n Temmenhausen and AS Ulm-West will be opened in late 2014 (7.8km; OSM). The section b/n Nellingen and Temmenhausen (6.8km; OSM) will be started in January 2014 and completed until late 2016. See press release (published on 13th December). The westernmost (6.4km; OSM) and the easternmost (1.9km; OSM) sections will probably be completed until late 2018. Project page: > click <.

VKE20 will be completed until 2016 or later. The VKE30 plan approval order was passed in January 2012. The complaint was withdrawn in June 2013. The works will begin after completion of VKE20. The plan approval order for VKE40 was passed in May 2012. It is challenged.

Total costs for the three sections (42km): 569 million €, see press release (published on 30th July 2013).

The Autobahn in the background is the A4.
