A30 at Bad Oeynhausen is becoming a shameful project. If it opens in 2019, that would mean a construction time of 11 years.

When started in september 2008, it was expected to be completed in 5.5 years, so early 2014. So that is now rapidly approaching twice the original construction time (which in itself wasn't a very ambitious schedule either).

A448 Bochum

More news about the project... According to an official announcement, the city street b/n AD Bochum-West and AS Bochum-South is officially A448 since 1st Januar 2017 although signs are there since June 2015. The former Landesstraße b/n AS Bochum-South and AS Bochum-Wiemelhausen (0.9km) is also dedicated A448 since 1st Januar 2017. It's already updated in the official data base/map of NRW: http://www.nwsib-online.nrw.de/.

The announcement also indicates:

Quote:
Im Zusammenhang mit der durchlaufenden Nummerierung der Bundesautobahn zwischen der A40, AD Bochum-West und der A45, AD Dortmund/Witten wird der Abschnitt zwischen der A43/A44, AK Bochum-Witten bis A45, AD Dortmund/ Witten in A448 umbenannt.
-->
To get a continuous numbering b/n A40 and A45, the segment b/n A43 and A45 will be renamed to A448
This is not yet updated on http://www.nwsib-online.nrw.de/. I guess that signs have not yet been changed but I guess it will happen "soon". The 9km segment is (was?) signed A44 (map).

The official 2016 Autobahn directory (September 2016 version) already indicates the former A44 as A448 with exit numbers 8-12.

Interesting. It makes sense to make it one continuous route from Bochum-West to Dortmund/Witten. It also eliminates one segment of A44 (which happens to have 2x3 lanes).

It was already announced to be renamed years ago.

The segment u/c was planned as A44 (the new BVWP 2030 still indicates it A44). It was reported later that it should be A441, A442 and finally A448.

The final configuration of A44 will have three segments. Belgium - Mönchengladbach (A46), Mönchengladbach (A52) - Essen (A52) and Dortmund (A1/A40) - Eisenach (A4). The gap b/n Essen and Dortmund contains a short A52 segment and the existing A40/B1.

Most of the currently missing A44 sections are u/c. 2 short segments in Essen and Dortmund are left and have only further demand in the BVWP 2030 (construction > 2030).

The Essen section is currently a 4-laned city street. A 2x2 tunnel is planned. 3.1km, 363 million €, current AADT 64,000 vehicles/day, 9-10% truck share. Future AADT (in tunnel): 60,000 vehicles/day. Cost-benefit ratio: 6.9.

The Dortmund section is also a 4-laned city street (B1) which is to be upgraded to a 2x3 Autobahn. It's planned to be A40 though. 15.7km, 791 million €, AADT 2030 77,000 vehicles/day w/o upgrade, 83,000 vehicles/day with upgrade. The eastern most section (9.5km b/n B236 and A1) is already 2x2 and grade-separated. The plan approval order for 2x3 widening (and noise protection) was passed in 2016 but it's challenged by residents who want a speed limit instead of noise protection. It's also challenged by a gas station owner who will only have access from a city street after the upgrade. However, Straßen.NRW plans to start construction in 3rd quarter 2017. The widening section has a cost-benefit ratio of 14.8 (VB-E) but the 2 short city sections have 1.2 or 1.4 only.

What about the gap at Mönchengladbach. If I remember correctly, it is not a part of the Bundesverkehrswegeplan.

Yep, you're right This gap is not planned to be closed. It was further demand in BVWP 1985, urgent demand in BVWP 1992 but no demand since 2003.

vignette

New prices for the vignette: http://www.bmvi.de/SharedDocs/DE/Art...turabgabe.html

The price for foreigners is dependent on fuel type and euro emission class. First, the annual vignette need to be calculated. This is a price per 0.1 liter engine size. Then, you get the price for the annual vignette. Based on that price, you can see how much a 10-day or 2-month vignette would cost.

In my case, I have a 1.0 L petrol engine (euro 6 standard). That is € 1,80 / 0,1 = € 18 for the annual vignette. That translates to € 2.50 for the 10-day vignette or € 7 for the 2 month vignette.

I usually make 3-4 trips per year to Germany. Which means purchasing a 10-day vignette four times would be the cheapest.

Yep, a campervan based on a 1993 Transit. Despite its age it's still in mint conditions and it would be an (expensive) shame to replace it only for its emissions level. Which I know is miserable, but considering it ran for less than 60k km in the past 24 years, I'd safely place it among the 10% less polluting vehicles in Europe

That's a point, how can you find out the Euro class of your engine?

I know for certain that my main car is Euro 6, but I also have a lovely 2003 1.2 petrol Astra that I use for random trips because it's very economical - but I have no idea how to find out about the class of the engine.
