According to a press release of the planning authority the criticisms of the BVerwG relate particularly to
- the method of the inventory of bats,
- the rejection of a more southern bypass of Bad Segeberg based on a rough analysis and
- the further consideration of dormice and amphibians.
The authority hopes to get a valid plan approval order within 2 years. The 5 ongoing plan approval procedures in Schleswig-Holstein are also effected and postponed by at minimum one year.

The regional press announces a construction beginning between "at latest 2016", "in 2016" and "at earliest 2016" . My guess is 2018.

If they manage to get another Planfeststellungsbeschluss by 2016, they will still have to go through likely appeals at the Bundesverwaltungsgericht (and Landesgericht?), so even if they do have the order by 2016, it will likely not commence until 2017 or 2018, provided there is funding by that time.

Given the slow speed of construction at most projects, a completion before 2020 seems unlikely. For example, look at A33 Borgholzhausen - Bielefeld. It's been under construction for more than a year now and completion is not anticipated until 2019. And more often than not projects get delayed during construction.

BVerwG only.

The Federal Ministry of Transport said that the funding is definitely (money available as soon as the PFB is valid).

The construction time for that section was announced at 5 years, e.g. 2018-2022 (my guess - w/o appeals - is 2018 to 2023/24).

Sorry, you are right. Stendal covers an area of 268km². Reutlingen covers 87km² only.

To be honest, it is Gardelegen west of Stendal (634km²; 23,000 inhabitants). The future A14 will cross both.

That's not written in stone. Hesse announced this section as "810BB" for the BVWP, but it's still not decided yet whether it will be 5+5 (least likely as a new AS Europaviertel is definitely planned, but this requires separation of long distance and local traffic), 3+3+3+3 with some short 2+3+3+2 parts, 3+3+3+3 all the way (some parts even having 4 lanes) or 2+4+4+2. Or maybe even something different. So we might very well see this part of A5 having 6 lanes per direction in the future - at least partly, but presumably all the way.

Truck toll is planned to be extended

Quote:
The existing truck toll will be extended to all federal roads (B roads).
It is planned to launch the toll for all 4-laned B road in 2015. It will comprise about 2,100km instead of about 1,100km. This will not (yet) fulfill the coalition agreement that the entire about 40,000km B road network shall be tolled.

The former CDU/CSU/FDP coalition had reduced the affected 4-laned road network in April 2011 by that 1,000km of roads w/o direct connection to the Autobahn network which are added now.

Quote:
The truck toll will be further developed in consideration of the results of the new infrastructure costs expertise
The result is that the interests are very low thus the state saves money for renovation works. Conclusion: The toll rate must be lowered! It is planned to introduce the toll for all trucks with a weight of 7.5 tons (instead of 12 tons) to compensate the lower incomes (80,000 trucks are concerned).

It is planned to launch the car toll in 2016.

In Hamburg only, see press release.

It is a pilot project to improve accident rescue.

I drove across this segment this morning. I took some photos.

1. Entering the new alignment west of Büderich.


2. The new alignment around Büderich has two lanes.


3. bridge across B58.


4. Entering the four-lane towards the bridge.


5. The speed limit is 100 km/h.


6. Last traffic signals before the bridge.


7. Bridge across the Rhine. This bridge opened in 2009.


8. End of the four-lane and bypass alignment. All traffic has to go through Wesel.

http://www.hamburg.de/np-a7-stellingen/ (many documents)
27 residents have taken an action against the plan approval order for Schnelsen section. It has no suspensive effect thus works can start in spring 2014.

The contract for rebuilding the "Langenfelder Brücke" (about 400m; Stellingen section) was signed today (see press release). Costs: 80 million €. Construction time: Spring 2014 to 2018.
The construction of the Stellingen section will start in May 2014.
The construction of the Schnelsen section will start in September 2014.
The construction of the Altona section will start in 2019. Source.

A44 Kassel - Eisenach

The last section of the future A44 b/n Kassel and Eisenach w/o a plan approval order is A44 VKE 11 b/n the i/c Kassel-East (A7) and i/c Helsa-East (~11.3km; map; project page). The plan approval procedure was started in 2006 but aborted. The planning documents were modified and sent to the Federal Ministry of Transport in January 2012. The Ministry has to approve the plans. The Federal Court of Auditors ("Bundesrechnungshof") also has to check it. They've some concerns but they want to finish the check until spring 2014. Then the Federal Ministry of Transport has to authorize the plans. Afterwards the plan approval procedure can be started again (source).

Here a map of the current planning state:
(Source: Hessische/Niedersächsische Allgemeine)

The i/c Kassel-East shall become a three-leg-interchange by what there would be no connection from the A44 to the B7 towards Kassel downtown. The final decision (with or w/o B7 connection) will be done during the plan approval procedure. The Losse river and the railway will be crossed by two bridges (87 meter and 88 meter) instead of an underpass tunnel (which was part of the 2006 plan) b/c the bridge construction costs are only about 51 million €. There will be no additional lanes at the inclinations. The B7 near Oberkaufungen will be removed and the A44 will use the current B7 route b/n Oberkaufungen and i/c Helsa-West. The planning authority Hesse.Mobil does not agree the Federal Court of Auditors' request to use the B7 route near Niederkaufungen too, b/c this would require additional noise abatement measures. The A44 will also feature a 50m ecoduct and a 1.4km tunnel near Helsa. The total costs were specified by 223.8 million € in 2012.
