Sorry for inquiring. I meant - as answered by @SRC_100 - if this section will be speed limited, since the curve radius seems to be quite narrow.

I've no idea but I don't think there will be a speed limit because of the curve radius (they are not critical). Maybe because of noise protection.

A26 Stade - Hamburg

The Jork bypass will be opened in May 2015. The authority will monitor the traffic changes. Maybe the Hamburg direction b/n Jork and Horneburg will be opened in 2015.
The Lower Saxonian Minister of Transport has the aim to open the 2nd carriageway in Summer 2015. Section 4 (up to the A7 in Hamburg) is announced to be opened in 2024 (or 2025?). Source (please ignore the damn incorrect diagram).

btw: The Schleswig-Holstein Minister of Transport announced that the plan approval procedure of the A20 Elbe tunnel will still be passed in 2014. Source. The procedure of the next section b/n tunnel and A23 should be passed in 2015, the remaining four plan approval procedures should be passed in 2016.

The last A71 section b/n Etzleben and Sömmerda is announced to be completed until August 2015 (source; Landtag of Thuringia).
The additional costs are about 60..70 million € (source). The last info about the costs were announced in a press release of the Thuringian Ministry of Transport from January 2014: 72.6 million € --> ~ 140 million €.

I must admit it's much nicer to visit a construction site with another enthusiast, or sometimes a group. You can discuss the things you see and learn a thing or two
