Apparently it's pretty rare. I've never seen such a truck. I've read they are used to transport 660 °C molten aluminium to car plants. Smelting aluminium requires huge electricity consumption, plants need a direct connection to high voltage transmission lines.

A30 Bad Oeynhausen

A 1.6 km stretch of A30 opened to provisional traffic today. It's a short stretch north of Bad Oeynhausen that runs from L772 to K29 (new B61?) There's one lane each way for the time being. It doesn't connect to other parts of A30 yet, so through traffic still has to go through the city of Bad Oeynhausen for the time being.

And I drove it today!
Yes, opened this morning. Some pics: > click <.
Bad news: The completion of the A30 bypass is delayed. Straßen.NRW hopes to open it in early 2017.
The official aim is to get the entire A30 Bad Oeynhausen bypass into service in 2016 (I guess late 2016): source.
There's some trouble about the construction contract of the Löhne i/c "Kreuz Löhne" (15 million €). A bidder was excluded of the tender procedure because the bidder made a formal error. A complaint of the company was rejected by the procurement chamber ("Vergabekammer") in June. Now, the company went to court. The hearing will be in October 2015. Afterwards, the contract should be awarded short-term. Thus, the planned completion (Late 2016, which is a confirmation to my previous assumption) is delayed. It's not possible to term a completion date. See press release.

I guess, it will be delayed by (minimum) 6 months. That means 2017. In addition, I don't think that the eastern section will be opened in late 2016 but together with the western section to avoid getting traffic on the new road by mistake which would lead them on streets through residential areas (L772).

It was originally planned to open in late 2016, i.e. before the winter. I'm not sure how much the works are impacted by the winter, but it could mean an additional 3 months delay, maybe opening in Q3 2017.

Works started in September 2008...

The first section was announced to be opened in early 2011 but it was opened on 12th March 2014.

The B14 project b/n Backnang-West and Nellmersbach in Baden-Württemberg has a length of 7.6km. AADT was about 22,000 vehicles/day in 2010 and it's planned to built a 4-laned road with hard shoulders. It also contains the 2nd Murr viaduct (2nd c/w, the old one was recently reconstructed) and a 135m tunnel in Waldrems.

The plan approval order was passed in November 2005 and building permit (Baurecht) is available since October 2007. Total costs: about 144 million €.

The project was split by the state's ministry of transport in 2011. It was planned to built section 1 first. It has a length of 1.9km and includes the Waldrems tunnel. The estimated costs were 38.93 million in 2012. This section was split by the Federal ministry of Transport now. Just 10 million € are funded! That's about 25% of BA1 costs (inflation is about 2-3%/year) and less than 7% of the total 7.6km section costs!

Good news: construction works of section 1.1 should begin in April 2016 (source) and should be completed by 2017 (source).

The new Parliamentary State Secretary of the Federal Ministry of Transport, Mr. Barthle, CDU party, is from the electoral district Rems-Murr but he is used to care just about B29 which is in the same electoral district. Mögglingen bypass was funded in 2014 (68 million €; construction began in July 2015), Essingen was funded in July (35 million €; construction is announced to begin in summer 2016).
Mr. Barthle don't likes the green/red Baden-Württemberg government and published a press release and an interview.

Some quotes:
- All Germans are happy about the invest! Whole Germany? No! One green Minister resists verbal like Asterix.
- We funded 100% of the Baden-Württemberg projects with building permit!
- Baden-Württemberg ordered their projects with building permit (prioritization). That's why they don't have more projects with building permit and that's why they didn't get more money!
- The prioritization was useless "Hat uns im Bund nämlich überhaupt nicht interessiert. Hat für uns keinerlei Bedeutung" --> "we didn't care about it. Has no importance at all".
- We only fund projects which are ready for building ("Baureife") that means land must be aquired (note: not true, I read about many funded projects that they have to aquire land now; it's quite common in Germany to wait with land acquisition till the construction is funded)
- B14 project was delayed because it was challenged (note: rejected or withdrawn in October 2007)

There are no more complaints against the A7 cover. The last case was settled out of court by the residents of the Imbekstieg and the City of Hamburg. So construction works can begin End of 2015 as once planned.

I've seen also a 20 km/h on italian A13 near Bologna years ago, but was a sign put alone to cover a damaged guard-rail, I don't think a real limit sign...

The 40km/h speed limit (and lower limits) is temporary sign, until the motorway repairs will begin.

that's ok for that reason, but isn't a bit dangerous a so low limit on an Autobahn, without a physical obstacle? A so low limit can cause an accident

I wonder what's more dangerous, the bump or people driving 40 km/h on the Autobahn in free-flow conditions?

Very bumpy A11 near the Polish border had a 100 km/h speed limit when I drove there in 2013. I wonder if this is much worse?

Given it is a bridge there might be also other reasons for the low speed limit.

I don´t think the speed limit in the picture has anything to do with driving safety or comfort, i´d rather assume it´s a temporary measure to save the defect expasion joint from further damage.
