The cars in Germany on average (at least in that video) look a fair bit younger than here.

I would say that motorways are little bit better in Austria, but there are not big differences between them.

When exactly did they do that? I drove there at 16:45 this very afternoon and was guided through the Leutra Valley as usual.

I couldn´t find any source which says that they already opened the first tube. On the other hand MichiH posted the official press release of the state of Thuringia that claims otherwise.

Here is a very interesting video about safety tests conducted some days ago in the tunnel.
It´s in German but you can see the extreme expensive high-tech fire suppression system in action.


Some numbers:

-The Jagdbergtunnel is Germany´s 4th longest Autobahntunnel

-There is a 147 m high shaft in the middle of the tunnel connecting it with a ventilator building on top of the mountain (you can see it in the video above)

-129 cameras are installed in both tubes

-they used 480 t of explosives during the construction time

It could be a press release that was released too early.

The BMVI also speaks of 'heute' (published 30.10.2014)

The westbound tube was not opened yesterday. It was only inaugurated and the press release is inaccurate .
It was announced to be opened for traffic today 9:30 AM (source) and it was really opened this morning (source).

It looks quite strange to see tractors deployed for doing the earthworks. But then again it's rather sand than earth they are moving there.

Is this the longest motorway in Germany?

Last night I travelled from the Netherlands back to Austria. From the Dutch border I take the A3 to Oberhausen, and I exit there to stay on the A3 towards Cologne. From there it's a straight run without using exits all the way to Munich, as the A3 changes into A9 at Nürnberg. To stay on the A3 towards Regensburg you have to take an exit again.

I had this thought last night. If you get on the A2 at Berlin, and keep on sitting on it without taking exits, you'll wind up in Munich via Hanover, Oberhausen and Frankfurt. It keeps on changing numbers (A2, A3, A9) but it's still a straight run without exits.... So not looking at the numbers, it must be the longest straight motorway in Germany.

It actually starts at Potsdam Junction and goes all the way to München-Schwabing. It's not exactly straight either but it certainly is the longest central reservation in Germany and maybe even in Europe. One the lanes on this route may also be the longest one at least in Germany.

1278 km: we win!

(interesting experiment, indeed)

Maybe some cross-border route running through Germany is even longer.

Following the best European tradition, I quickly shift to the most convenient "we", depending on who's winning

That's not a European tradition but an Italian one.

It's called survival instinct. Others (the French) surrender on day 1. Everyone's got his own ways.

Yes, but they were talking about Europe.
What's the longest straight motorway in the world? I-90?
