RLP has the B9 still unlimited in large sections... near that Worms interchange with B47 it's 120 km/h though.
A61 near the B47 interchange is also 130 km/h limited, wouldn't make much sense to have an unlimited speed connection between the two at those points.

Was mostly thinking of the section east of Worms though. The bridge and that interconnection mess on the eastern entrance of Worms will bring it down to 50-70 km/h as a stopover anyway.

So the next section will be grounded on posts. At the end of April 50 concrete posts with a length up to 26 meters were rammed into the ground.
After a pause they did load tests to calculate the amount of posts they will need.
It'll be 640 of them western of the B404 and another 800 eastern.

Due to the ground conditions a section of a half-done bypass (L49) already got damaged.

Nevertheless the aim is to finish the whole 5,1km till 2017. (The first section is already done with a length of around 2 kilometers)
It's very likely that the costs will be higher than estimated, but there's no up to date calculation available.

Still 23kms till the capital of Schleswig-Holstein and who knows what problems they will face the next years.
Sadly enough the Nordöl gas station will be demolished soon. It always had fair prices compared to the Autobahn gas stations 28km over.

Also yesterday there was an apparently unnecessary speed limit of 100km/h from Bornhöved onwards (other direction A21 to AS Bornhöved, too). Hopefully it's not permanent.

Another thing that I noticed some time ago: Google Maps already signs parts of the B404 as A21 (and there are also undoon parts of the A28 which are already signed. Very strange)

When I did my trip from south germany to north germany yesterday, I tried to get some pictures of construction sites along the A7, but sadly they are all rubbish. :-/

The Netherlands built this 'motorway on stilts' as well. A27 south of Gorinchem is an example. They entire motorway is built on piles driven into the ground in the early 1960s.

Now I understand why it takes so long to construct a few kilometers of A21 in that area. 5 years for a six kilometer segment of rural motorway.

Kreuz Schwerin

The Schwerin motorway interchange reopened to traffic yesterday, after A14 was closed for 2 years to reconstruct the interchange from a trumpet to cloverleaf. The cost was € 36 million.

https://www.ndr.de/fernsehen/sendung...azin30182.html

Interestingly, they already sign Dresden at this point, not Magdeburg. Dresden is nearly 400 kilometers away.

Happened, see press release.

My lengths of the u/c A14 section were wrong. I measured them on OSM: AK Schwerin - AS Grabow should be 14.4km, AS Grabow to AS Groß Warnow should be 11.5km and AS Groß Warnow to AS Karstädt schould be 10.8km.

Correct but is A40 already 2x3 in service since today . I've no idea when the Bochum ring road will be officially rededicated to A448 (it was announced to happen in 2017) but it's already signposted.
5.0km b/n AD Bochum-West (A40) and AS Bochum-South seem to be rededicated from city street to A448. The first section of new A448 just west of AK Bochum/Witten is announced to be opened late 2016. The remaining new A448 section is delayed and announced to be opened by mid 2018. I guess the remaining ring road section (1.8km) will be rededicated when this section is opened. See press release no. 1, press release no. 2, news article and private website with some pics.

The last section (3.9km; map) of B45 Niddeau bypass was opened on 22nd June 2015, see press release. In total, the bypass has a length of 7.3km and costs of 40.2 million €.

An additional plan approval procedure for Bürstadt bypass widening is required. The documents of Bürstadt-Lorch widening are currently modified, an additional plan approval procedure (that means some documents are published again) should begin in summer 2016.

Baustelle

There are 366 road works longer than 4 days in Germany during the summer vacation. Beware!

I love the seriousness of that infographic. If one didn't read German language maybe they would suspect it was infections of Ebola virus or something very alarming

A 20 River Elbe Tunnel

Are there any news about the A 20 tunnel between Glückstadt and Wischhafen?

I drove through France twice this month, through the entire country, from Belgium to Spain and vice versa. I encountered only two work zones over a distance of nearly 2000 kilometers.

According to the infograph, there is a Baustelle on the Autobahn every 35 km on average.

Yes, but it is not distributed equally. E.g. on A3 between Wiesbaden and Montabaur (actually Kreuz Wiesbaden and Dreieck Dernbach), 87km, there is 5 of them.

The "zur Ferienzeit" on the infograph is funny. In Baden-Württemberg for example school summer vacations don't even start until July 30th, so basically all "summer vacation construction sites" are after the timeframe cited.

About 34 or so in the state this summer vacation instead of those 25. Mostly on A81 (8), A6 (7) and A5 (7).

Not silts but mainly peat! The problem is the long lasting time dependent deformation of soft clays or peat. One very popular construction method is pre-loading. This done by dumping a dam of sand along the motorway. The dam weight causes the soft soil layer to consolidate and compress. After the removal of the dam the motorway is constructed. The time of pre-loading may be up to 2 or 3 years in extreme cases depending on the thickness of the soft soil layer. But most likely methods are used to shorten the drainage path of the pore water that moves out of the soft soil layer (e.g. vertical drains) resulting in a shorter time for soil consolidation.

Another method is to not load the soft soil layer by additional loads. In this case the loads are carried by piles to a deeper firm soil layer. This is much more costly than the pre-loading method.

A method that regarding costs may be in between the above mentioned methods is soil improvement by deep mixing, stone columns or columns of lime and cement respectively. Sometimes water legal issues do not allow this method.

Sign on the A20 Rostock eastbound. Very informative, but do we have to know that there is an airport in Berlin already in Rostock 230km away? , at a quick look you might think that the sign shows the way to the Rostock airport.

I think it is pointing to Rostock-Laage Airport: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rostoc...3Laage_Airport
