B49 around Wetzlar has a long 1+1 section with a crash barrier. Speed limit sings "100" are posted there.

Ye, I meant that I don't know any (and I assume that there any) 1+1 with crash barriers who don't have any limit posted. Only the recommended speed limit on such a road would be dangerous, if it's more than a few hundreds meters without a reasonable speed limit posted.

Where are these? Can't remember of ever having driven on such a piece, although I have the impression many German simple 1+1 roads allow safely doing 140-150 km/h. I would like to see the general limit raised to 120 km/h ...

Presumably the majority of > 100km/h 1+1 stretches will be signposted as Kraftfahrstrasse anyway.

Is 120 km/h the highest sign-posted limit one can find for a 1+1 road, or is there even a higher one (would be very surprising, but who knows ...)?

What about highest numerical Autobahn speed limits? The general practice (which is based on some laws in the background) is to signpost limits of max. the advisory limit. That is, either a limit of up to 130 km/h, or none at all.
There was, however, some pilot project with a 140 km/h limit somewhere. Is this the highest limit ever signposted up to now?

I don't remember because I usually don't care about things like this. B286 b/n A70 and A3, see Pepov's post. I confirm that the speed limit will be 100 after widening to 2+1 .

I agree. I even think, 180 can be safer than 130.

Will be? No. It's not planned or discussed.

I think it's 120.

140 is displayed on VBAs near Hannover, A2. I don't know the English name of VBA, I think dynamic traffic information.

There are two variants in Germany:
- Verkehrsbeeinflussungsanlage (VBA) which display speed limit, warning, no overtaking by trucks etcetera (like stationary signs but electronically/dynamically)
- Streckenbeeinflussungsanlage (SBA) which display real traffic information like construction site announcement or route recommendation.

Car toll / Truck toll

The Federal coalition of CDU, SPD and CSU party arrived an agreement about the car toll. The law is announced to be legislated on Friday. The short-term vignettes will be scaled too. The 10-days vignettes will cost 5, 10 or 15 € depending on ecological features of the car (previous proposal: 10 €). The 2-month vignette will cost 16, 22 or 30 € (previous proposal: 22 €).
The truck toll law passed the Bundestag on Thursday evening.
- Truck toll has to be paid for usage of addition 1,100km (mostly) 4-laned B road from 1st July 2015, see map (blue: motorways with toll, green: B roads with toll, red: B roads with toll from 1st July 2015, yellow: B roads w/o toll)
- Truck toll has to be paid by vehicles with a weight >= 3.5t from 1st October 2015 (instead of >=12t)

The car toll law passed the Bundestag on Friday, 12:05 PM.
- German vehicle owners have to pay for usage of all roads from 1st January 2016
- Foreign vehicle owners have to pay for usage of motorways from 1st January 2016 (E vignette; it could be extended to all roads later on)
- Vehicle tax will run out on 31st December 2015

In addition, it's announced to introduce the truck toll for usage of all B roads (yellow on map). See press release of the Federal Ministry of Transport.

The law must pass the Bundesrat now but media says that they can only delay it (which is announced). I think the Federal Minister (Bundespräsident) Gauck must signs the law too but I'm not sure. Media says, only European Court of Justice could stop the toll.

Anyway, the regional party is happy now:
Source: CSU press release.

Translation:

Toll comes!
- No additional costs for German vehicle owner.
- More justice on German roads.
Kept word!

Since they have the e-vignette, they could at least integrate it with the unmweltplakket in one single procedure.

A20 Elbe tunnel

Section 8 contains the new Elbe tunnel (length: 5.7km; costs: 1.2 billion €). The plan approval order of the Schleswig-Holstein part was passed on Tuesday. The plan approval order of the Lower Saxony part is announced to be passed in the coming weeks.
The spokesman of the Federal Ministry of Transport confirmed that Minster Dobrindt wants to get EU funding (Juncker's 315 billion € investment plan) for the Elbtunnel. The tunnel is built as PPP. Costs: 1.5 billion € (source).
The 2nd plan approval order of the A20 Elbe tunnel was passed on Monday. It's the 6.7km Lower Saxony part which begins at the future A26 AD Drochtersen. See press release.

The plan approval order of the Schleswig-Holstein part is challenged meanwhile (source). The ferry service company (we would have to close the ferry service with 50 employees; predicted AADT wrong, A21 could be more ecologically friendly) and the municipality of Kollmar (our voluntary fire deptment would be unable to cope) and the Steinburg district (plant fire department required) appealed. In addition, there is already a comment of an opponent about the Lower Saxony part. He says, the A20 ends in the middle of nowhere w/o any connector (source)!

A7 Salzgitter - Göttingen

The last plan approval order for A7 widening to 2x3 b/n Salzgitter and Göttingen (map) was passed in late December 2014. It began in August 2012. Quite quick. All remaining sections b/n Seesen and Nörten-Hardenberg (29.2km) are ready to be built.

The Lower Saxony Ministry of Transport wants to press criminal charges against the building companies because of eco-crime and demands renovation. Source.
Renovation has been started meanwhile.

The 13.0km section in between is partial delayed. Works began in August 2012, completion is announced for late 2015 but there was low advance in the past. The southern part b/n Seesen and Harz rest area is almost completed. 3 lanes are already in service on the southbound carriageway but there are still only 2 lanes in service northbound. B/n Harz rest area and Bockenem, the construction of the first(!) carriageway has just started a few weeks ago. I guess it will be completed by late 2016. There's no official info why it's delayed.

Road trip part one

I took a road trip during the weeked all the way from Leipzig to the Southwest and back. The numbers shown on the map are the places in which the photos were taken.


1 + 2 Heavy traffic on A9 near Leipzig. There was congestion heading southbound.




3 A4 before Jena. This bus driver should be punished for ignoring the traffic regulation


4 Jagdbergtunnel after Jena. It was AT LAST opened for traffic last October after six years of construction.


5 A4 between Jena and Erfurt.


6 Kreuz Erfurt, the intersection of A4 and A71.


7 Leaving A7 and driving in the direction of 'Gießen' via A5.


8 2+3 section of A5.


9 Entering the Gießener Ring. It's actually a yellow autobahn.


10 A3 after Limburg an der Lahn. On the left side you may see the ICE high speed line Frankfurt-Cologne.


11 A3 again. On the left the P+R parking lots of the ICE train station Montabaur, quite a small town hidden in many hills. It's becoming world famous since few weeks because the co-pilot of Germanwings flight 4U9525 was born and raised here.


12 A48. River Rhine ahead of us.


By me.
