I have never driven on the A60 although I live so close to that area (well, but the A1 part (name "1" because it is the (second) westernmost major autobahn north-south-direction (ok, the A3 begins deeper in the west, but also ends deeper in the east, but it is to discuss that the road number system doesn't work so properly in Germany as in the States )) from Trier to Wittlich to Vulkaneifel (=> and then A48 to Koblenz and Dernbacher Dreieck and A3 to Ransbach) I drive nearly every weekend. But I always forget to charge camera battery. The part of the A1 between Wittlich and Vulkaneifel is partially really really bad, you feel like bumping over the road (especially on the right lane; speed limit is mostly 100 because of the damages of the asphalt)).

I was told the A60 is a really good part to check the speed limit of your car because of looooong curves and stretches and few traffic and no or few limited parts. How was your impression? PS: nice pics again

The A60 is VERY empty, almost no traffic. And no truck traffic aswell. However, it has some climbs, but i think it's okay to test your car here. But i don't have a fast car, sometimes i couldn't get faster than 110 climbing a hill.

^I hope it's not very offtopic to ask: What car do you drive?

i could have guessed you'd drive those 128.000 km in one year

btt: I edited the map in the 1st post a bit, it's now including yellow autoban stretches



EDIT: I have some trouble with uploading it, pic will follow later

I'm interested in that map with Gelbe Autobahnen. They really look just like motorways. In fact, in many countries such roads would be described as motorways.

The main diference between autobahnen and gelde autobahnen is that the former were build to replace(built on top of, in many cases) regular roads, right?

Comeon man, you can´t consider the Gelbe Autobahnen as real motorways, i know how it feels to drive on them and on the real Autobahnen, it is way different and the Gelbe Autobahnen go through towns and also sometimes of a sudden become two lamed national roads, it is the case here close to where i live. The Gelbe Autobahnen usually have not the newest asphalt and the lames are narrower, they don´t have shoulders. You said in some coutries these would be consideret motorways, in bulgaria they wouldn´t considered motorways i think, for other countries i don´t know.

In the first half, the autobahn didn't look any more impressive than a run-of-the-mill interstate in the US. The second half was more in-line with what I've come to associate with an autobahn.

The stretches with the standards this one have are indeed real motorways, although not called autobahn.

But that only applies to stretches with limited acces (no same level access), 2x2 configurations and that have shoulders, like the one on the picture.

What's the speed limit on Yellow Autobahns? And are there no plans for completing the Munich ring in the south-west?

This Yellow Autobahn (B9) has a speed limit of 120km/h. They say the B2 north Augsburg has no speed limit.

Yeah, this part used to be a Bundesstraße. But they rebuild it to Autobahn standards. Immediatly after this left exit, there is an interchange with the A57.

they would say it´s a bad fourlamed road, or they probably would say magisrala but they wouldn´t qualify this as an autobahn or avtomagistrala as they know how real avtomagistralas look. but i like such Gelbe Autobahnen, the B10 here hasn´t shoulders.
