A44

https://wirtschaft.hessen.de/presse/...ten-oestlichen

The construction of 17 kilometers of A44 is now legally secured, now that complaints against the plan-approval order are withdrawn. It's the segment from Sontra-Nord to Wommen (A4).

Segment VKE50 (Sontra-Nord - Sontra/Ulfen) was not appealed to
Segment VKE60 (Sontra/Ulfen - Wommen) was appealed to, but is now withdrawn.

This means the entire eastern part of A44 is now legally secured and construction could begin if funding comes available.

A14 Schwerin - Magdeburg

The Saxony-Anhalt Minister of Transport noted additional planning efforts b/c new aspects of the current law or regulations, have to be considered in the ongoing procedure again and again, see press release.
The court decision was published on 8th January. The plan approval order (signed in December 2012) is illegal and not executable, see press release.

Explanation: The plan approval order for section Colbitz-Wolmirstedt was also challenged. The section ended 1.5km north of the interchange Colbitz. Thus there were environmental problems with that part ("Stummel") it was excluded from that section in 2011 and moved to the Dolle-Colbitz section. But the environmental problems have not been fixed (completely) thus the Dolle-Colbitz plan approval order is illegal now. The problems can be fixed with an additional plan approval procedure.

Quote:
Um die insoweit fehlerhafte Abschnittsbildung zu heilen, hatte das beklagte Landesverwaltungsamt im Jahr 2011 gegenüber dem auch damals klagenden BUND durch Prozessvergleich die Verpflichtung übernommen, die „Stummelstrecke“ aus der Planfeststellung des vorherigen Abschnitts herauszunehmen. Der daraus folgenden Obliegenheit, den betreffenden Teilabschnitt insgesamt in die Planung des Folgeabschnitts zu integrieren, ist das Landesverwaltungsamt aber nicht in vollem Umfang nachgekommen. Vielmehr sind dabei Defizite aufgetreten, die sich vor allem auf die Durchführung der Umweltverträglichkeitsprüfung beziehen. Auch wurde versäumt, Kompensationsmaßnahmen für die mit der „Stummelstrecke“ verbundenen Eingriffe in Natur und Landschaft neu festzusetzen.
The Saxony-Anhalt Ministry of Transport is grateful that the judge have given helpful notes, see press release.

Quote:
Andererseits sei er dem Gericht für die intensive Befassung mit den Planungsunterlagen und seine klaren Aussagen dankbar. 'Mit Blick auf die weiteren Autobahnabschnitte haben uns die Richter wichtige Hinweise gegeben und Festlegungen getroffen, die uns dabei helfen werden, die weiteren Planungen zügig voranzubringen', erklärte Webel.

The plan approval order for the B474 Datteln bypass (4.1km; 17 million €; OSM) is illegal and not executable, see newspaper article. The plan approval procedure was started in August 2005. The order was passed in March 2009. The additional plan approval order was passed in May 2011. It was challenged and the complaints were rejected in January 2013. But the higher court has stopped it now.

So, 9 years of planning flushed down the toilet?

The planning was not started in 2005. It is a long way until a plan approval procedure can be started. An environmental impact study "Umweltverträglichkeitsstudie" and a preliminary design "Vorentwurf" must be done and an approval by the state's and the federal Transport Ministry "Erteilung Gesehen-Vermerk" must be issued prior. The approval by the Federal Transport Ministry takes at minimum about 1 or 2 years.

The B474 plan approval documents can be modified by another additional plan approval procedure (1-2 years).

The ministry of transport and urban planning (Bundesministerium für Verkehr, Bau und Stadtentwicklung - BMVBS) has been renamed to Bundesministerium für Verkehr und digitale Infrastruktur (BMVI).

New homepage: http://www.bmvi.de/

The old www.bmvbs.de also still works.

Aus der letzten Ausgabe der Motorrad News, ein Urteil des Oberlandesgerichts Koblenz.
"Wer bei 200km/h auf einer tempounbegrenzten Autobahn unschuldig in einen Unfall verwickelt wird trägt 40% Mitschuld"

It means if you are,completely innocent,involved in a accident on a german motorway without a speed llimit with a speed of 200km/h you are 40% guilty

And that's totally ok. Autobahn is no rally track. Noone is 100% safe with this speed.

German motorways have no speed limit, that is true.
But there is a recommended max speed of 130km/h.

Traffic laws state that you always are responsible to adapt your speed to the situation.

Why do people always think that everything is allowed as long it is not forbidden? Why do people not understand that freedom demands responsibility?

I am not so pessimistic, people driving on Autobahn seem responsible, safety record of the network is excellent compared to similar roads elsewhere in world, who have fixed limits.

Recommended speed as on Autobahn is used frequently in US and Canada on sharp curve warnings and similar, usually will suggest speed of 45 km/h and people go around at 80 or 90 km/h, so 200 in recommended 130 seems fine, and as we see by visiting the nice BRD, it is perfectly fine most of time

This regulation is, in effect, very simple (and I like it).
You have the recommended limit of 130km/h, up to which you are "safe" (in terms of "automatic" partial liability in an accident). Then, you are allowed to drive as fast as you judge it reasonable, however, the legal perspective of a partial liability in case of an accident (you are otherwise not responsible for) requires an extra share of cautiousness from those doing significantly more than the 130km/h.
I say it's sort of a "gentlemen's agreement" regulation. The lawmaker explicitly allows you to exploit your vehicle on the unlimited stretches, but requires a higher share of responsibility from the "stronger" traffic participants, due to the simple fact that high speeds always imply a higher accident risk.

Plus, if you prove that the accident (you are otherwise not responsible for) would also have occurred if you had been driving at 130km/h or less, you can avoid this partial liability due to high speed. But the burden of proof would be on you (which, depending on the case, might be everything from easy to impossible).

I wish more countries adopted the German autobahn speed regulations.

I guess German style law is easier to interpret legally, but I am not sure.

For example, what happened in Montana. A man was driving a new Camaro Z28 (Vmax = 265 km/h) at 140 km/h on a freeway with speed limit "reasonable and prudent", and got ticket. Court found that it was vague to ask people to be "reasonable and prudent", as Camaro driver felt his speed was prudent, and police did not, so that the law could not be enforced. Eventually they switched to a fixed limit of 120 km/h, but people frequently drive 200 km/h or more (it is a really wide open place, and ticket is not expensive.)

But German style sounds even more complicated and vague, especially in regards to partial liability. For example, if a car changes lanes and hits you on the side, and you are driving 200 km/h, but the road is straight and long, and, let's say other guy is driving 190, what is going on?

But surely, Germany is a wonderful place to drive on the freeway without the stress of speed checks and highway robbers waiting to steal from you, as is common in the US, Canada or even worse a place like France...

There are a lot of speed checks on German roads and Autobahns! About 50 percent of the German Autobahn network is limited.
