It will be ready in 13 years, because it's urgent. Imagine projects which are not urgent.

Until recently, the Euro emission class was not really relevant in everyday use for passenger cars. It was mostly used for trucks in respect to tolling, as some countries have toll rates that depend on the emission class (mostly in Central Europe).

Euro 6 was introduced on 1 September 2014, however cars can be sold up to 1.5 years beyond that date. My April 2015 Hyundai has a Euro 5 engine despite being built / registered after 1/9/14.

I wonder how they are going to enforce the emission class though. Do German authorities have 'on the spot' access to all national car databases in Europe? How are they going to know I drive a Euro 5 car instead of Euro 6?

Nice upgrade, with quite an unusual design. It's a cross between these more standard designs:

- Clovermill: two cyclic ramps horizontally separated from the loops to the inside. There are four of these already in NRW, e.g.: https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@51.544355,7.1995543,16z
- Cloverturbine: two cyclic ramps horizontally separated from the loops to the outside (sometimes called a cloverstack, though I think this is imprecise). Not used in Germany, but found in Spain, the Netherlands and Austria: https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@48.0627398,14.037903,16z
- Cloverstack: two semi-direct ramps grade separated from the loops (a 'classic' cloverstack). Common in the US but pnly one in Europe, near Paris: https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@48.9738378,2.4881455,16z

The new A1/A44 ramps are grade separated from the loops, like a cloverstack, but the ramps are cyclic, like a clovermill or cloverturbine.

I remembered where I saw a similar layout to the redesigned A1/A44. The N2/M41 uMhlanga interchange in Durban, South Africa is currently being reconstructed to this design:

I monitor the "planning progress" for years now. The first news article about planning start is from August 2010:
To relieve the existing bridge, it features only 2+1 lanes from today, see press release. The bridge will be renovated from summer 2017. See press release. The westbound bridge (opened in 1962) will feature 1 westbound lane, the eastbound bridge (opened in 1971) will feature 1 westbound and 1 eastbound lane.

AADT 2015

A manual traffic counting took place from April to October 2015. The first patch of results (Autobahns) was published today, see press release. Autobahn traffic grew by 8% from 2010 to 2015.

Funny. Actually 4 of 10 are the eastern bypass of Cologne, a section of 14 km between intersections Heumar and Leverkusen.

Meh, the A20 near Rotterdam used to carry that amount of traffic on 2x3 lanes. The A10 on the southern side of Amsterdam carries 200k+ on 2x4. (2x3+shoulder running)
So it could be worse

So far I've looked into A1 in 2010 and 2015. There is quite some spectacular traffic growth, in particular between Lübeck and Köln, where a 10,000 - 20,000 increase was registered on many segments, some even up to 25,000 vehicles growth. A1 through Bremen recorded a solid growth from 80-100k to 100-118k vehicles per day. A1 at Münster grew from 58k to 82k vehicles per day. A1 at Kamen grew from 100k - 120k. The biggest increase was at Hagen, from 75k to 100k.

Meanwhile A1 Kelberg - Gerolstein carries just 2,000 vehicles per day.

There is no clear plan when this gap will be built.

I'm normally not really the one that likes new motorways in western countries a lot (with the exception of the UK and at remote locations in Scandinavia), but the A1 at that location... it should be built! It's ridiculous that gap. It would speed up Cologne-Luxembourg a lot.

No. Between K-Mülheim - Kreuz Leverkusen only 2×3. Between K-Mülheim and LEV-Zentrum it is currently being widened to 2×4.

The 25km A1 gap is split into 3 sections. They've been urgent demand for a long time (minimum 2003) and they are again urgent demand in the BVWP 2030. It was announced by the Ministers of Transport from NRW and RP last August, that the plan approval procedures or plan approval supplementation procedures should begin in 2017, see press release (2).

According to PRINS, the costs are 481.2 million €. Expected AADT 2030: 17,000 vehicles/day. Cost-benefit-relation: 5.4 (2014 figures). Remaining planning period: 120 months, construction period: 48 months.
