Thank you all for the information on historical German road numbers!

Now to see if something can be done about the idiotic signage on the A12 towards Poland. No chance of Poznan, really?

A643

The A643 'Vorland' bridge of the Schiersteiner bridge b/n Wiesbaden and Mainz will be strengthened by 80 additional steel pillars. The bridge will be reopened for vehicles > 3.5t in late 2015. 1 lane per direction will be in service until Mid 2016 when the first new Rhine bridge will be completed. See press release.

Yeah, it's build by the municipality of Stuttgart. The Mayor of Stuttgart, Mr. Fritz Kuhn, is a former co-chairman of the Green party! I seems, Greens like to build great road infrastructure .

btw: Stuttgart is German no. 1 in tomtom stats about road congestion...

IS there any plan to ultimately link B10 with B29 in Stuttgart?

It was in the BVWP 2015 but it's canceled now. Thanks to the Greens!

How can these people get such a huge share of votes in a state where car industry is so important? For God's sake, there's Porsche in Stuttgart! I just don't picture the average Porsche buyer (or worker) voting the greens and allowing them to systematically block all road infrastructure projects and threatening to impose a general speed limit, especially with road-loving Bayern so close.

There are also the headquarters and major plants of Daimler (Mercedes, Smart,...), Bosch (no.1 automotive supplier) and ZF (big automotive supplier) in Baden-Württemberg. In addition, there are many machine builders which are focused on automotive industry.

The first regional association of the Green party (Landesverband) was founded 1979 in Sindelfingen. There's also the largest Mercedes plant in Sindelfingen. The Federal association of the Green party (Bundespartei) was founded 1980 in Karlsruhe.

Baden-Württemberg got the first German green Minister-President in 2011. CDU got 39% (conservative party of Merkel), Green 24%, SPD 23% (social-democratic party), FDP 5% (liberal party). Opposites thought it's caused by "Stuttgart 21" conflict (big railway project) and Fukushima but opinion poll still says (26th March 2015): CDU 38%, Green 25%, SPD 18%, FDP 5%, The Left 5% (socialistic-democratic party), AfD 4% (Eurosceptic conservative party). It's higher than in 2011. The voters seem to be happy with their government .

I gotta say the wishlist for the Bundesverkehrswegeplan from Baden-Württemberg was not a big disappointment as one may have expected with the greens in the government. Although new alignment construction isn't ambitious, they wanted to widen nearly every Autobahn in the state.

The 2nd carriageway will be completed in November 2017.
Yeah! I live in the near of the area... I'm very glad it had been afforded to built the 2nd carriageway (after about 30 years!). Man these maximum speed of 80km/h used to be so annoying but it'll take a while til it's finished

No wonder since the Autobahn network is very weak for the urban area of about 3 million situated in rather dense populated region.

I assume that it was not in Mr. Kuhn mayorship that this project was started?

Planning started thousand years ago but construction work began in late 2014. Mr. Kuhn is in office since January 2013 .

The old council passed the beginning of the tender procedure just after election but prior the new mayor was in office - in late October 2012. See news article from 25th October 2012 (2). Mr. Kuhn had no chance to stop the project although he and his parry are against it .

I know it's not considered a very high priority in Germany, but I'm so happy this project is included. There was little chance for a completion before 2030 or even 2035 given the reports of exceedingly slow planning and construction pace of other conventional projects in this thread.

This road is only a two-lane highway. Although it bypasses all towns, there are a number of traffic lights and the endless convoys of trucks doing 65 - 70 km/h on this road makes it a total drag.

With 100 km/h you can drive from A31 to A1 in 50 minutes, but in reality it's closer to 75 minutes with all those trucks. At 120 km/h it could be done in nearly 40 minutes.

This route is in fact the shortest from Rotterdam to Hamburg and trucks use it to avoid the LKW-Maut (it's nearly the same travel time for them). The Netherlands upgraded the route to motorway in 2007, together with a small portion of B402 in Germany to the A31 interchange west of Meppen.

I have a question, since I'm not following in details all updates on bridge closures and else. I'm going from Netherlands to Würzburg next week. There are numerous route combinations between A40 and A3 (A61, A3, A45 or even A7 (via Kassel) are viable routes) within 1 hour of "travel time without traffic"

Which of these routes have bridge closures or severe bottlenecks?
