The IRP 2011-15 was relased in March 2012. I checked my list for the actual status.

Note: I split my list into sections, that's why the total number of projects is higher than in the official list.

Category B (ongoing projects / Laufende Vorhaben):
200 sections completed
53 sections u/c
8 sections not u/c (B97 Cottbus bypass (2 sections), A6 Neckarbrücke Heilbronn, A94 Malching-Kirchham, A66 Riederwaldtunnel, A44 Ratingen-Heiligenhaus, B7 Altenburg-Frohburg and B173 Flöha bypass 2nd section)

Category C (urgent projects for IRP period / Prioritäre Vorhaben im IRP-Zeitraum):
21 sections completed
70 sections u/c
70 sections funded
32 sections: plan approval order but not funded
16 sections: plan approval order but challenged
54 sections: plan approval procedure
11 sections < plan approval procedure

There's also category D, additional projects.

It's less than 50%.

Munich has to finish it's ring road, it would seriously decrease amount of cars on western part of Mittelerring.

I disagree. If you build it, they'll come, or as we say in Germany: "Who sows roads will harvest traffic"(Wer Straßen sät wird Verkehr ernten)
2 lanes per direction is usually just enough.

The cars are there anyway - they are just driving on alternative routes or stuck in traffic.

Roads do not create traffic, people do. And with increasing number of citizens in and around Munich plus growing transit traffic on the ring the infrastructure should be expanded.

It is literally true, but actually roads may create traffic in an indirect way, and in a city like Munich they surely do.

Quote:

No, not necesserily.
People may decide:
- look for a job nearby which is accessible by bike or on foot
- look for a job which is best accessible by car
- take the public transport.
In and around Munich a vast majority of adult people has a car (it is one of the wealthiest regions of Europe) but many people don't use it for daily commuting but use the public transport or a bicyle instead, or go on foot.
The quality of infrastructure may influence people's decisions about transport mode primarily (shall I go this morning by train or by car?) and secondarily (shall I take a job in a certain area in or near to the city?)

Modal share in Munich (only inside the city itself):
On foot: 27%
Bike: 17%
Public transport: 23%
Car (driver or passanger): 33%
Minor changes, 1-2% up or down, happen every year, the basic proportions have not changed in the recent ten years.

The 'induced demand' theory is typically exaggerated and is a not an argument not to expand or build new motorways.

By far the largest increase of traffic is due to population / economic growth and changes in routing. For instance, nearly all traffic on a southwestern leg of A99 would come from existing roads and thus would relieve those roads. As A99 is not a route into the city center, a modal shift from public transport is negligible, because the modal share of public transport on circumferential or bypass trips like A99 is marginal.

A 2014 study (English) by the Institute of Mobility in the Netherlands found that only 1/8th of the traffic growth after a motorway expansion project was due to 'induced demand', i.e. new trips that would have otherwise not been made. Approximately 0% of those new trips came from public transport.

is induced demand even a problem ? Surely if the road is improved and people drive, that situation is better than the situation that existed before (people wanted to drive, but didn't because the roads were bad)

That may be a valid point when discussing some road projects. But come on, a city the size of Munich not having a full ringroad is just unacceptable in such a developed country. There may be congestion in peak hours, but just think about how many non-peak hour trips could benefit from that.

The induced demand theory has long been popular in The Netherlands. Still some people that believe in them. Though the numbers prove them wrong. I rarely hear it anymore.
I travel a lot in Germany and hope they start massive projects soon (and finish them much faster also).
What I am wondering, what changed the situation in the Netherlands?
What should it take for such a policy change to be made with our neighbouring friends?
There should be plenty of money in DE and these kinds of investment increases economic growth I would suppose. So in the long run it might even pay back.

I think 1/8 is a lot! I didn't expect such a hugh increase due to 'induced traffic'. Thus I cannot agree that the argument is exaggerated because I rarly read about this argument.

Yes, more traffic = more air pollution etc. It's bad for the nature. Well, that's what conservationists say. I think it's not bad because a new road typically reduces air pollution if congestions are dissolved.

I think new roads connect people. It's easier to visit different towns, different regions or different countries. That's positive especially considering that European countries were used to wage a war with each other.

On the other hand, induced traffic also means: You look for a new job. You have to decide what are your limits, e.g. if driving 30 minutes (one way) from home to the plant/office is ok, or 60 minutes or even 90 minutes etcetera.
For instance, if one lives 100km out of town and driving to a company/office in the city takes 2 hours one way due to daily congestion, one would not apply for a job there without considering to move closer to the city. If a perfect motorway would be build and the daily travel time would just be 1 hour.... The company location could be within the personal limit and one could decide to apply for a job without moving there. That would result in induced traffic.

It's the same for shopping, sightseeing etc. Everyone has limits what's ok for a trip / commuting etcetera. New roads provide opportunities. I see the positive things (connecting people etcetera), others see the negative things ("Who sows roads will harvest traffic").

1/8th of traffic growth. That's pretty small, for example in a not-so-unlikely scenario of 80,000 vehicles per day on 2x2 lanes with a growth of 20% after widening to 2x3 lanes over 10 years, this means the traffic growth due to 'induced demand' is 1/8th of 20% of 80,000 = 1,280 vehicles per day.

So that means out of 96,000 vehicles per day, only 1,280 is due to 'induced demand'. Whether a motorway carries 96,000 or 94,720 vehicles per day after widening to 2x3 lanes is pretty irrelevant and is more or less within the margin of error.

Of course, but it's more than I expected and I really read about it rare.

News

A44: AK Ratingen-East (A3) – AS Heiligenhaus 4.0km (Summer 2015 to 2020) – projectmap (NW; plan approval: 1991 – February 2007; additional approval: ? – February 2012; ? – 2016 (drainage); complaints rejected; funded)
A44: AS Heiligenhaus – AS Heiligenhaus-Hetterscheidt 4.9km (April 2010 to 2017) – projectmap

The eastern section is announced to be completed by Mid 2017, the western section is announced to be completed by 2018 now. Source.


B15n: AS Ergoldsbach – AS Essenbach (A92) 9.0km (August 2013 to 2018) – projectmap

Delayed to 2019 (it was already announced in March 2014 that it's planned to be completed by 2018/19). Source.


B29: east of Böbingen – west of Essingen 6.9km (July 2015 to 2018) – projectmap (BW; plan approval: October 1998 – September 1999; funded)

The groundbreaking ceremony took place on Monday, see press release, press release no.2 or news article. Only the news article reports about the estimated construction time of 3 years. The total cost of the 2x2 expressway is 67 million €. Thus plan approval orders are only valid for 10 years (but could be extended by 5 years), a bridge for a rural road was already build 5 years ago.

The neighboring section is funded meanwhile:

B29: west of Essingen – west of Aalen 3.5km (2016? to ?) – ? – map


B266: AS Bad Neuenahr (A573) – AS Bad Neuenahr-East 1.8km (February 2009 to Fall 2016) – projectmap

Delayed to Mid 2017 (it was originally planned to be opened by late 2014). Source (I'm not authorized to read the article, so I don't know the delay reason).


More news tomorrow.

Induced traffic exists and every one that denies it is a fool.
However, how big it is, may differ from place to place. In densely built urban areas it may have more importance.
Especially in secondary effects. What I mean: now in most German cities the majority of offices are in the city centers. City centers are densely built, no free place for wide roads, the modal share of public transport and bicycle are rather high, that of car is pretty low.
If new roads will be built or existing roads will be upgraded so that they are no more congested on a daily basis, even areas where public transport can not have importance and distances are too long for biking can be attractive for building offices and create jobs, or move jobs from the crowded city centers. As an effect of that many people will drive a car every day instead of public transport or bicycle. Not because they think roads are now better then trains/bike but because their new job is located in a place where car is definitely the best option.
That's what happened in several Dutch cities decades ago, happens nowadays for example in and around Budapest.
I'm 100% sure if the now missing southwestern section of A99 were built, a lot of new car traffic would come to that road. No people who now use the train between Taufkirchen and Pasing (although it's a very attractive train connection) but people that commute now from Taufkirchen to the center because they don't want to commute to Pasing because of the long travelling time, but could take a job in Pasing and commute by car on the new A99 if it existed.

BUT I do NOT mean any way that A99 should not be built, or any existing road in and around Munich should not be upgraded because of induced traffic!!

A map of Bavaria (March 2013 version) shows the state's proposal for the new federal demand plan (BVWP 2015).

Legend:
new road (project is in current demand plan BVWP 2003)
new road (new for BVWP 2015)
widening (project is in current demand plan BVWP 2003)
widening (new for BVWP 2015)

Munich area is quite green (but almost no new roads are planned there!).


btw: Bavarian project list (March 2013 version) and current Federal project list (September 2014 version); 2+1 widening projects are not contained in the BVWP!

News

A21: north of AS Nettelsee – south of Nettelsee 2km (February 2012 to Late 2017) – projectmap

The section has a length of 2.1km and it's delayed because of the required posts. The estimated completion is 1st half of 2018, that means Mid 2018. Please refer to a previous post and to a recent press release.


A23: AS Itzehoe-Center – AS Itzehoe-South 4.5km (January 2007 to Late 2015) – projectmap

The Stör bridge will be opened in October 2015 (~2.5km) and the remaining section will be opened in June 2016 (~2.0km). The opening ceremony of the Stör bridge will be on 24th October 2015. Please refer to a news article or to the project page.

The opening will be in late August (or maybe early September). Source.
It is reported to be opened in September now........ Please refer to a news article.


A94: AS Pastetten – AS Dorfen 17.4km (April 2012 to 2019) – projectmap
A94: AS Dorfen – AS Heldenstein 14.9km (2016 to 2019) – projectmap

The construction of both sections is planned as PPP project. The Lappachtalbrücke (Lappach viaduct) is already u/c. It's in the western section and it's a "big" building. That's why I declared the section u/c. According to a press release from July 2013, two bridges in the eastern section were also built as "preliminary works". Due to the clear declaration as "preliminary works" and due to the fact that they are just two little bridges (rural roads which cross the future A94), I didn't declare the section u/c.

According to a recent news article and satellite images, more works have been done there. Clearance works and 9 bridges in total are u/c (minimum 3 in the eastern section). These works are funded by the federal budget. The PPP contract should be signed in fall 2015 and works should begin in early 2016 (at the latest in March 2016) so that the new Autobahn could be opened in late 2019.

It was planned to open the entire section by late 2015 but the construction south of the Stör bridge is a separate tender procedure. A candidate challenged the award of the contract to another company. The complaint procedure took about 6 month. That's the reason of the delay .
