Another bridge problem. The Brudertal Bridge on A81 near Engen has been closed to all northbound traffic after the bearings were found to be in bad condition. It's unclear when the bridge will reopen.

It seems that the first 80% of such VDE projects are completed in relatively short time, but the last 20% takes just as much or even more time.

For example, 85% of A71 was completed over a period of 8 years. However, the final 15% took another 9 years. (184 km opened 1998-2006, 35 km opened 2008-2015).

It feels the same for those long-distance widening projects, such as A2, A4 and A9. The majority was delivered fairly quickly, but the remaining stretches required a much longer time to be completed.

It was reopened yesterday after a "more than 24 hours closure".

A minor problem with construction of A7 widening north of Hamburg (PPP project). The construction planning (Bauausführungsplanung) of bridges and underpasses took much longer than expected. There's a delay for 13 buildings between 2 and 7 months. Two sections are delayed (to be completed in 1st quarter of 2017 instead of October 2016). The Hamburg section is also delayed, to be completed by 2nd quarter 2018 instead of 1st quarter 2018. However, the completion of the entire project is on schedule (to be completed by December 2018).

Source: Abendblatt (25th May 2016)

The graphic is wrong. Section 5a and 5b were already announced to be completed by March 2017 when construction works began.

The construction of the next A26 section west of A7 is not on schedule. The plan approval order should be passed in early 2017 (instead of 2nd half-year 2016). Construction works could begin in 2018 at the earliest (previous announcement was 2017), the completion will be in 8 years at the earliest (2024, previous announcement was 2022). The project comprises 8.7km of new 2x2 A26 and 3.7km A7 widening. Complaints are likely. Source from 19th May 2016. However, the plan approval procedure of the next A26 section just east of A7 (1.9km) is still announced be begin in 2016. Source from 20th May 2016.

It was announced that the expected construction period is seven years. There was no announcement about serious delays up to now. In April 2013 it was confirmed that the road should be opened "between Mid and End of 2016".

The 2.8km new distributor road (B480) will connect the A46 to the existing road network. There's an info about the 624m viaduct "Talbrücke Bermecke" (map) that its construction period is 3 years (source). The construction of the viaduct began earlier this year. That means, the A46/B480 opening should be 2018.

It's also planned to extend the A46 up to Brilon (B480; map) but the planning progess is damn slow (preliminary design phase is not yet completed). It should be B7 with 2+1 lanes.
A news article from December 2015 indicated a construction time of 3.5 years for Bermecke viaduct. Construction works began in Mid 2015. I thought that the section might be opened in late 2018 but I've suspected that it might be delayed to 2019.

The mayor of Bestwig reported in an interview, published on 24th May 2016, about a meeting with the project manager. The manger didn't announced any completion date but it sounded like the section would be opened in 2019.

A46 is planned to be extended by a realigned 2+1 B7n. It was announced in July 2013 that the preliminary design phase (Vorentwurfsphase) should be completed by 2014. However, it's still in progress and there's another problem with wildcats. The route must be changed (source from 16th April 2016). A new study is required (13th May 2016).

The population is decreasing but the mileage per person is still increasing. It's not a homogeneous development but for Germany in total. That means, traffic volumes around cities and transit routes might still increase while less vehicles will drive in remote regions.

I drove B189 / B5 from Magdeburg to Schwerin (and partially back from Schwerin to Perleberg), and I noticed almost no traffic took the new segments of A14. At each interchange, nearly all traffic - including trucks - stayed on the old route. You can see that in particular between Groß Warnow and Karstädt, where the new A14 runs parallel to B5. A14 was empty while B5 had its share of trucks and cars. Perhaps people don't update their GPS.

nice wish, but this is caused with different reasons:

- the opened segments are so short and the germans are unable to build temporary ends that it is a time loss to use the motorway, example is "Karstätt", 200m more motorway, 100m temporary link, close the normal B5 in this area that traffic automatically goes to the new A14 and have to exit:
https://www.google.at/maps/dir/53.15...e3!4m2!4m1!3e0

- for long tavel the important parts are missing, at the moment the route is shorter but a lot of not motorway, it is the decision go via the Berlin - ring
A) Karstätt - Wittenberge
B) Stendal west bypass
C) Magdeburg bypass
these 3 sections are the key, if they are built it is an option to choose the not finished A14 because more motorway and addiontally shorter route than now using this general route and not go via Berlin

They are a good opportunity for motorists to pass a couple of trucks though. Trucks are limited to 60 km/h on German non-motorways.

I was driving on B189 from Magdeburg to Stendal, not far from Colbitz there were three trucks driving 60/70 fairly close to each other, making it almost impossible to pass them unless you got a long straight stretch with no oncoming traffic, which almost never happens on busier routes. I didn't lose those trucks until past Stendal, which is an annoying 40 kilometer stretch of driving 60-70 km/h instead of 100.

The alignment of the missing section of A143 at Halle has been chosen.
