Don't you have to have a registered company in your name in order to claim vat rebates on fuel?

Preliminary works are already ongoing (clearing). Tendering will be done in spring 2015. Earthworks will start in June 2015. Estimated completion: Late 2017. Source.

It's the 2nd and final A14 section in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern (Mecklenburg-West Pomerania). The next section to the north and the next section to the south (in Brandenburg) will be completed in late 2015. Total length of the three sections: 37,5km.

Section control

The first German section control will be installed on the 4-laned B6 south of Hannover between Laatzen and Gleidingen (OSM; 3km) in 2015. There's an accident black spot. The project period is 18 months.

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).
The new 4.6km A26 section will be opened on Thursday, Friday or Saturday. The opening will be done without any ceremony because it is too mortifying for the officials. It will only be opened for cars driving towards Stade. Source.

The groundbreaking ceremony of the 4-laned B31 between Immenstaad and Friedrichshafen/Waggershausen happened today (OSM). Total costs: about 110 million €. Estimated completion: Late 2020. A 700m noise protection tunnel, a bat flyover and 12 bridges are built. See press release (2). The road will feature 2x2 lanes with hard shoulders. The route was finally chosen in 1982, the plan approval order was passed in 1987. It was challenged and repealed in 1990. The first section (northern Friedrichshafen bypass) was built from 1994 to 2001. The new plan approval order was passed in June 2008. The appeals were rejected in 2009 and 2010. Project page.



btw: I've edited the yesterdays post (A8 Bergen viaduct)

I don't think they will finish it next week from what I saw today But I have no idea what their actual schedule says.

Here are some low quality cheap smartphone photos.
This is the construction site of the Boden/Niederahr exit and the current end of the new B255 bypassing Boden (driving towards Niederahr).







EDIT: or maybe I am just plain dumb and they will or already have opened a section between Oberahr and Niederahr, which I have not checked...

This section is announced to be opened Mid 2016, see latest news article (10th October).

I don't think it's already opened. I've checked the local media yesterday.

A44 Kassel - Eisenach



A great aerial video of the u/c A44 (70km) with comments (I think it's understandable for Non-German speakers too. The most used word is 'tunnel' ).

When a 44 Kassel - Eisenach will be finished, which route will be better (short/fast)? Dresden - Kassel via 14/38 or Dresden Kassel via 4/44?

According to Google Maps, the A14/A38/A7 route has a length of 353km. The current A4/B400/B27/B7 route has a length of 355km. The future A4/A44 route should have almost the same length but the entire A4 has 2x3 lanes.

I think the transit traffic will get the chance to choose the route according to the traffic conditions.

Thank you for professional answer (as always) . IMHO the problem is that if you are near Dresden you have no chance to hear verkehrsservice from Hessen. And a7 Dr. Drammetal - Kassel is really... i hate to drive there, always problems. I hope that new a44 will be better, as it will be new.
New a44 will be 2x2 all the way?

I don't drive east-west there but driving the A7 I usually listen to MDR jump radio. There is only one problem: No radio traffic service about A7. I think, congestion on A7 is currently problematic north of A38 only (2x3 widening ongoing). I can't remember bad experience south of A38. But I don't drive there often. I don't drive there Monday morning or Friday afternoon.

A44 will feature 2x2 lanes all the way. There will be many tunnels with 80km/h speed limit. There is also a very sharp curve. The A44 will relieve A7/A4 south of Kassel. But the 2x3 A4 should allow fast driving with low congestion risk.

The A44 progress is not like in Poland. It's damn slow. Works on the next 7.2km section will probably begin in 2015. Two sections will be completed in 2016 (10.4km), I hope this will set free money for the last three eastern sections (21.6km). I hope works begin in 2018 but there is another competing Autobahn project in northern Hesse, A49 south of Kassel. Funding is still done state specific, not demand specific (Hesse is in the middle of Germany and should get more money for its infrastructure projects).

I made a prediction on the German forum 6 weeks ago: The A44 should be completed by 2022-25 except the western-most section Kassel-Helsa but I guess the planning procedure (including court decisions) of this section should be completed by 2022-25 too. There are a lot of discussions, the plan approval procedure - started in 2006 - should be restarted "soon". The A7 is planned to be widened to 2x4 lanes b/n Kassel-East and Kassel-South (6.2km, approved since March 2010). Noise barriers are currently built there. I think, the completion of the A44 is more important than this A7 upgrade.

btw: Hesse has proposed a 2x4 upgrade of the entire A7 b/n the Lower Saxony/Hesse border south of the A38 and Kassel-East for the BVWP 2015 (masterplan 2015). In addition a 2x5 upgrade b/n Kassel-East and Kassel-South (where a 2x4 upgrade is approved, see above ). It's currently checked by the Federal Ministry of Transport.

2x5 sounds impressive, but i guess it might be around 2030? 40?

I promise this is is my last question for today -
I found this map:
http://www.autobahnatlas-online.de/A...ererBedarf.pdf
And i spotted 3 very interesting places:
1. A 4 to Frankenberg (Eder)
2. A 480 North of Giessen
3. A 143 east of Halle
Are these three possible at all? For me it looks like science - fiction, but very useful (at least for me nr 1 and 2)
