Which is why I dunno why they are complaining about the Klimawandel, Germany will get warmer and then everything would be way better, sandy beaches, lots of sun, like vacation all year

I have a question: they are building tunnels in SW München. When all is completed, will it be possible to drive between A96 and A995 without going through any traffic light?

When will this project be completed?

No . The RAB works have been stopped in 1941.

Ground breaking: August 2009. 2.8km, 2x3 lanes. Estimated opening for traffic: Late 2015. Estimated completion: Late 2017. Estimated costs: 400 million €.

See project page.

Traffic lights: Dunno but I think it should be grade-separated.

Yes once this is finished the entire Mittler Ring apart from the part between Berg Am Laim and St Quirin Platz is grade seperated and free from traffic lights.

You will be able to connect between A95, A96 and A995 without any lights. Only the South Eastern corridor is still covered with lights so connecting from South West to East is still prone to severe delays. That said even the rest of the ring is often congested due to accidents or capacity problems.

There is new imagery on Google Earth in the Würzburg area. Basically a strip of 29 March 2014 imagery from Schweinfurt down to Kreuz Feuchtwangen/Crailsheim.

You can see the new Kreuz Biebelried, with six through lanes. That's something done right in Germany, they often have three lanes also through interchanges. The Netherlands is lacking in that aspect, with A12 being the worst, it drops down to four through lanes at six motorway-to-motorway interchanges.

A3 has four eastbound lanes from Randersacker to near Theilheim. You can also view the construction of the bridge at Marktbreit. It shows construction at Würzburg-Heidingsfeld (A3/B19).

There's also a new arch bridge across the Main at Volkach.

In my opinion, they need to complete the A99.

It is not part of the current BVWP (2003-15) and it will not be part of the future BVWP (2015-30). But almost the entire existing A99 western, northern and eastern beltway is planned to be upgraded.

The A3 will also feature four eastbound lanes b/n Kauppenbrücke and Weibersbrunn (u/c until late 2015; section was already 3-laned before widening; westbound carriageway to be upgraded from 2 to 3 lanes) and b/n east of Wertheim and west of Helmstadt (eastern part completed but the 4th lane is closed; western part should be widened in 2015/16).
The A3 features four westbound lanes west of the Würzburg-Heidingsfeld i/c and will feature 4 westbound lanes b/n Würzburg/Randersacker i/c and east of the Würzburg-Heidingsfeld i/c (to be completed until 2019; already 3-laned; eastbound carriageway to be upgraded from 2 to 3 lanes).

The future 6-laned A3 b/n Würzburg and Nuremberg will not feature any additional lane at inclinations.

Yep, in both directions.

Picture I took a while ago on the A8 just before Inntal Dreieck, warning people that toll vignettes now applies right from the border on the Austrian A12.

Is there a particular story for building A995? Was it supposed to extend further north within München-Stadt?

It was just to connect the A99 (outer beltway) with the A999 (today's B2R = "Mittlerer Ring"). It was planned to have 11 connections b/n A99 and A999 - but not all at the same time: A990 (today's A9), A991 (A92 extension; still discussed a couple of years ago), A921 (airport Autobahn east from Ismaning; today's St2088/M3), A992 (today's A94), A993 (St 2078), A994 (today's southern A8), A995, A996 (today's A95), A997 (today's A96), A998 (today's western A8).

It was also planned to build the A8 through the city. This route had took the today's A995 route. See map. This would be your A995 extension but towards north-west, not to the north.

There is also a book about the Munich Autobahn plans: > click <.

Maps of the land development plans (Flächennutzungspläne):
- 1938: > click <.
- 1958: > click <.
- 1967: > click < (with the A8 through the city).

Pascal, are you talking about the current closure of the interchange? It is due to renovation works, see press release (I am not sure if you can read and understand it). The i/c is closed from 28th April to 6th June. The map shows the u/c section in red, the detour route in green and the A3 in orange.
