Maybe there are very high ships here? This is the main water connection between the Ostsee and the Northsea, so that could be a possible reason.

for those who speak german, here is a satirical video from a german broadcast "Extra3" about a family who lives under and interchange, because their children can play there because of the low amount of traffic there

Funny, they don't seem to have a problem with living in the intercharge. I'd never want to live on such kind of place, even not for only 8 DM/m2.

On some signs they added Leipzig on additional boards:





Leipzig "officially" starts to appear on the signs halfway between Magdeburg and Halle:



Why is that? Is it because they don't like Leipzigers in Magdeburg? They have competing football teams or something?

Strange indeed, i would prefer Leipzig over Halle, it's much more important and larger.

Though "Halle-Leipzig" is not a strange term in Germany.

@ [anyone/everyone]

Whoa! Autobahn Road Signs are huge!

And the pavement quality of most of the Autobahn network is really good (both the cemented ones and the asphalted ones).

That certainly does not qualify for all Autobahnen.

The A28, A29, A30 and A31 in the Dutch border region all have pretty crappy pavement. Often limited to 100km/h because of the pavement.

@ Chriszwolle

Oh...I see. I guess the main reason why those Autobahn near the Dutch border have 'crappy' pavement quality is that they're really old. A re-pavement would do the trick!

Meanwhile, the ones in Frankfurt and Berlin are awesome!

Nah not really, most motorways near the Dutch border were finished in the 1980's if i remember correctly. That's not very old. It's all about maintenance, we have motorways in the Netherlands that are like 50 - 70 years old, and still in perfect condition (pavement-wise, not capacity-wise).

So, is the yellow centerline on the autobahn simply indicative of a construction zone? If I saw that, I'd stay right no matter what (which is probably a good thing ).

The yellow lines are construction site lines. Most European countries use yellow lines for this purpose. The left lane is often limited to 2m wide, and prohibited for trucks. In certain situations, overtaking is also not allowed here, which means there is a 2 lane capacity, but you can't go faster. Hell, it's dangerous to drive faster than 60/70km/h on a 2 meter ( 6,5 feet) wide lane.

It's because Leipzig is in anoter German federal state than Magdeburg and Halle. Magdeburg an Halle are both in Saxony-Anhalt and Leipzig is in Saxony.
And the thinking in each federal states is very local. They give their own cities a higher rate than cities in other federal states, also if the cities in other federal states are bigger.

But that's too big!

But thats only because the pavement of most of the photographed autobahns are younger than 15 years.

Normaly autobahn-pavement should be renewed all 30 years.

Yeah. And then they have to rethink it, because too many trucks from northwestern Germany go to Leipzig via Berliner Ring. The result is ugly-looking additional boards with Leipzig on them...
