It is just a variation of the technique of anchoring-and-digging, where you build an anchor (like pillars and an injected slab under a roadway, for instance, or a base under existing houses/buildings for a subway tunnel) and then remove rocks/earth/whatever after the load is already bearing the new structure.

They will find loads of occasions where the material must not be used.
That is the most ridiculous thing: Imagine you catch crime on cam, everyone can see it, but it cannot be used, because the criminal did not agree to get filmed.

Around 10% more dead and wounded this year compared to first half of 2013.

1576 people died in the first six months of 2014 because of accidents (137 persons more or 9.5%).
The number of injured grew by 10.6%, at around 185600.
The number of accidents was lower though, from 1,15 mil to 1.2% lower.

For more info see the articles below. I'm to lazy to translate

2013 was the best year ever.
3339 people died in 2013.
3600 people died in 2012.

More than 20 years ago, in 1992. Even 11,300 in 1991.
The number of killed people per million inhabitants decreased from 14.2 (1991) to 4.1 (2013) and the number of killed people per billion kilometers decreased from 19.8 (1991) to 4.6 (2013).
The number of killed people per million inhabitants in Sweden was 2.8 in 2013. NL, UK: 2.9; Spain 3.7; Austria 5.3; Luxembourg and Poland: 8.7; Romania: 9.2 (see page 20 of above linked document).

That was a pretty good figure in 1992. Spain had record-highs of around 10,000 deaths in the first years of that decade, yet we were a lot less (and had a lot less cars) than in Germany.

A6 Mannheim - Heilbronn - Nuremberg

Westwards, there are still two gaps with 2 lanes only. The section has a length of 54km (OSM) and is the main connection b/n France and Czech Republic. The AADT was b/n 64,000 and 89,000 vehicles/day in 2010, the truck share was about 20% (source).

The 1348 meter long Neckarbrücke viaduct near Heilbronn must be renewed (OSM; age of 57 years). The number of lanes was reduced from 3 to 2 lanes last October to avoid more damage (fatigue crack in the welding seams) which causes daily congestion (this section has the maximum AADT of 89,000). The plan approval order was passed in 1998 but the plans have been modified and a new plan approval procedure was started in April 2014.

The plan approval orders for the two other sections were passed in July 2012 (7.6km section) or April 2013 (10.8km section). It is upgrade the A6 as a PPP project. The press officer of the Federal Minstry of Transport has recently announced that the award procedure will take two years, the works could been started in 2016/17. A 8.7km section near Sinsheim was built in 2010/11.
The A6 tender procedure has been started, see press release. The PPP section begins at i/c Wiesloch/Rauenberg and ends at the i/c Weinsberg. The contract contains 25km to be upgraded and 22km which are already 2x3. It includes the new Neckar viaduct. The contract period will be 30 years for maintenance. The awarding of the contract will begin in the 2nd quarter of 2015. It's planned to sign the contract in late 2016. The inception of treaty (and construction begin) should be in early 2017.

PS: Baden-Württemberg has entered into the DEGES company (federal infrastructure planning company), see press release.

I am a bit shocked actually. In the 80's and early 90's the Germans were among the best drivers in Europe. They were fast but disciplined. The discipline has gone right down the drain, but apparently it saves lives...

Around the year 1970 we counted like 20,000 road deaths only in West Germany.
If you see the relation of traffic density then and now, with the number of road deaths then and now,
all I can say that road safety in Middle Europe is quite a success story.

Of course, it is not because drivers are so much better today. Sure enough it is the technical improvement of cars themselves alongside with improved road safety.

I'm enjoying those Russian driver videos with spectacular crashes on YouTube. I bet they pretty much go through our 70s right now, because you hardly see any European or American ones on YouTube...
