Bundesverwaltungsgericht (specifically this unit https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/9._Rev...ltungsgerichts) is the one deciding matters related to road construction, e.g. appeals against a "Planfeststellungsbeschluss" (see in German: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Planfe...lungsbeschluss)

So this would be the German supreme court.

They (them and the constitutional court) occupy those buildings right next to the palace in Karlsruhe, to the west, am I right?

No, it is not. There is no equivalent to the (US) supreme court that is responsible for all aspects.

A good text is here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supreme_court#Germany

Quote:
In Germany, there is no de jure single supreme court. Instead, cases are handled by numerous federal courts, depending on their nature.

Final interpretation of the German Constitution, the Grundgesetz, is the task of the Bundesverfassungsgericht (Federal Constitutional Court), which is the de facto highest German court, as it can declare both federal and state legislation ineffective, and has the power to overrule decisions of all other federal courts, despite not being a regular court of appeals on itself in the German court system. It is also the only court possessing the power and authority to outlaw political parties, if it is deemed that these parties have repeatedly violated articles of the Constitution.

When it comes to civil and criminal cases, the Bundesgerichtshof (Federal Court of Justice) is at the top of the hierarchy of courts. The other branches of the German judicial system each have their own appellate systems, each topped by a high court; these are the Bundessozialgericht (Federal Social Court) for matters of social security, the Bundesarbeitsgericht (Federal Labour Court) for employment and labour, the Bundesfinanzhof (Federal Fiscal Court) for taxation and financial issues, and the Bundesverwaltungsgericht (Federal Administrative Court) for administrative law. The so-called Gemeinsamer Senat der Obersten Gerichtshöfe (Joint Senate of the Supreme Courts) is not a supreme court in itself, but an ad-hoc body that is convened in only when one supreme court intends to diverge from another supreme court's legal opinion or when a certain case exceeds the authority of one court. As the courts have well-defined areas of responsibility, situations like these are rather rare and so, the Joint Senate gathers very infrequently, and only to consider matters which are mostly definitory.

For me, supreme court is not responsible for all aspects

Supreme court - for me it's a court to which you can go as a last resort in case of a normal lawsuit.

I know that in some countries, there is one main court responsible for everything, but I didn't mean that.

It seems that the system in Germany is similar to the one in Poland, except there is even more types of different main courts (in Poland, we have only two systems of courts: the general and the administrative one + the constitutional court equivalent to the German Bundesverfassungsgericht).

Unlikely but not impossible that people call the court...

And the ECJ was called because of the plan approval order for the "A73" city Autobahn in Nuremberg. It's officially a district road (N4) which means that no EIA is required according to "Bavarian road law". Complainers doubt that it is legal to skip EIA...

There are more examples....

Yes, but it's not responsible for administration jurisdiction like plan approval orders for road projects. There are 5 federal courts for different issues.

The highest court is the Bundesverfassungsgericht. Wikipedia says: "The Federal Constitutional Court (German: Bundesverfassungsgericht; abbreviated: BVerfG) is the supreme constitutional court for the Federal Republic of Germany"

Erm, just to understand: what are the environmentalists aiming at? To prevent a new Rhine bridge?

Here is the press release: http://www.bverwg.de/presse/pressemi...ahr=2017&nr=68

They are afraid for the risks of opening up the 'Altablagerung Dhünnaue', a chemical waste dump. Another complaint was that the design is gunning for a viaduct replacement of A1 between Kreuz Leverkusen (A3) and Kreuz Leverkusen-West (A59). A definitive alternative (bridge or tunnel) has not been chosen yet. The verdict is that a tunnel would still be possible with the design of the new Leverkusen Bridge.

The Altablagerung Dhünnaue is a chemical waste dump used by the city of Leverkusen and Bayer to get rid of chemicals. People got very ill as a result of this dump and they even had to demolish a small neighborhood bordering the dump during the 1980s. The excavation of the dump will only be superficial, and they will take extensive measures to prevent any contamination:

A448 'Opel Querspange', Bochum

A new satellite image (27 May 2017) of the 'Opel Querspange' project near Bochum.

Funny thing though, the Opel factory is almost completely demolished now, by the time the 'Opel Querspange' opens to traffic, there won't be an Opel factory anymore...

A new section of A44 Kassel - Eisenach is u/c now. The groundbreaking ceremony for the first viaduct was in August, see press release. The lot has a length of 9.14km but the section b/n interchanges has a length of about 7.5km. The construction costs are 137 million €.

A44: AS Sontra-East – AD Wommen (A4) ~7.5km (August 2017 to 2022) – projectmap


2 out of 12 sections are in service, 8 sections are u/c, 1 section has building permits since 2013 but construction works have not yet been started (preliminary works only). The last section just east of Kassel - the most important one(?) - is still in an early planning stage.

There are some problems, the new announced estimated completion date is 2020 (at the earliest)


There were some groundbreaking ceremonies prior to the Bundestag election last September. Two of them are 2x2 grade-separated expressways:

1. A short extension of an expressway south of Bielefeld for 19 million €, see press release (w/o estimated completion date) and news article.



B66: AS Leopoldshöhe-Rollkrug – AS Leopoldshöhe-Asemissen 2.1km (August 2017 to 2021) – ? – map


2. A short "western extension of the Czech D6/I-6", see press release. Actual and predicted AADT is about 6,000 vehicles/day.

A20 collapse

A20 will be closed indefinitely, starting tomorrow morning, due to the Tribsees collapse. There was still one lane open towards the east, but that one will be closed as well as the collapse is moving sideways. The media reports that the collapsed section is now 6 meters deep as opposed to 2.5 meters when the collapse first occurred.

The repairs could take years, there is no timeline for a reopening of the Autobahn. The final investigation on the cause is also not yet completed as far as I know.

Traffic will use local detours via the Bad Sülze interchange. For this to happen, L23 and K9 will become one-way roads. These roads are pretty narrow with no centerline in places, it is not safe to handle motorway-grade volumes on such roads even if it is 'just' some 20,000 vehicles per day.

Construction has started on a temporary exit at K9. When completed, traffic won't have to go through two villages, as these roads were not designed for that kind of volume.

The idea is to construct a temporary bridge across the collapse, with one lane each way. There is no concrete timeline, but they're gunning for summer 2018 for that bridge to open. It is not yet known how long the repair will take, as the full extent of the problem is not yet apparent. Media reports talk about 'years'. It could be longer than the '2 years' reported earlier.

The detour plan, starting Friday:
