A44 Kassel

There are several bridge replacement projects on A44 on the west side of Kassel. Yesterday, a demolition of an old bridge saw an uncontrolled collapse of a concrete section, it crashed into the temporary support of the temporary bridge of A44, shutting it down entirely for eastbound traffic.

They are now repairing the support column, it means that A44 is closed eastbound until at least 20 December. It creates significant traffic problems, with delays of 1 - 2 hour at the last available exit of A44: Kassel-Bad Wilhelmshöhe. This is a trumpet interchange which ends at a traffic light with a single thru lane. The limited capacity of this intersection causes a 10 - 20 kilometer long queue on A44, with waiting times reportedly as long as 2 hours.

Truck traffic is being detoured from the Zierenberg exit, using B450 south to Fritzlar and then A49 back north to Kassel. Most other traffic seems to use either B251 from the Zierenberg exit, or wait excessively long until the Bad Wilhelmshöhe exit. At times the queue starts even west of Zierenberg.

Google Earth shows the bridge construction sites. The easternmost (right) bridge site was impacted by the incident.

A10/A24 Neuruppin - Berlin

BAM wins PPP road project (Availability Model A10 / A24 Neuruppin to Pankow) in Germany

The consortium consisting of BAM-PGGM and HABAU, has been appointed preferred bidder for the project Availability Model A10 / A24 AS Neuruppin to AD Pankow in Germany by DEGES GmbH. The project is located near the German capital Berlin. Financial close is expected to be reached in February 2018.

The design, build, finance, maintain and operate contract comprises the widening of the A10 to six lanes for a length of 29.6 km of motorway and the complete reconstruction of the A24 with four lanes plus an extended hard shoulder for a length of 29.2 km. In addition to the motorway the construction scope of works also includes several bridges (27 replacement constructions, 10 new constructions, 2 demolitions), noise protection walls, traffic sign bridges, traffic management installation, interchanges, rest areas and secondary/agricultural roads.

The construction activities will be carried out by BAM’s German civil engineering company Wayss & Freytag Ingenieurbau in cooperation with HABAU.

The O&M services scope (including winter maintenance) covers the entire contract section with a total length of approximately 64.2 km of motorway, including 51 bridges (37 new constructions and 14 existing). The O&M works will be carried out by BAM PPP and HABAU.

The construction period is approximately five years, the overall project period is 30 years.
Full press release: https://www.bam.com/en/press/press-r...4-neuruppin-to

It is planned that the project is completed by late 2022. The concession could start on 1 March 2018. The value is 'over € 1 billion'.

As mentioned, it is an availability payment PPP model, which is different from many other PPPs in Germany, which are revenue/risk PPP models.

B472 Hohenpeißenberg

A 5.2 kilometer bypass of B472 around Hohenpeißenberg in foothills of the Alps opened to traffic today. It connects to the bypass of Schongau / Peiting (1997) and the bypass of Peißenberg (2008). Traffic can now bypass all 4 of these towns.

B2 Oberau Bypass

The breakthrough in the second tunnel bore was successful. The workers will get an extra bonus because it has been done before Christmas. The bypass will be finished in 2021 and will cost 228 million Euro.

I had the impression that the Oberau bypass would have been a single carriageway road...

I think they try to avoid that after the fatal accidents in single bore tunnels. The Farchant tunnel is 2+2 too and the traffic count is 26000 vehicles per day with peak at 45000.

I wonder however why they didn't split the tunnel in the middle since there is a deep valley.

Oberau bypass will feature 2x2 lanes. A plan approval supplement procedure for the section in-between from Oberau to Farchant including Auberg tunnel was started last September. It will also feature 2x2 lanes. The actual AADT on B2 was 19,800 vehicles/day in 2015. A95 AADT at Farchant tunnel was 14,000 vehicles/day.

I will never get this idea nowadays that a motorway is seen as the devil by the people, but the exact same road named "expressway" is ok.
It is not a German-only thing.

26000 is from this info sheet, south of Oberau, may be its B2 and B23 combined. They don't tell the year however.

It's indicated that it's AADT 2005. And it's right. It was north of Oberau and B2 only.

Yep! Decreased to 19735 vehicles/day in 2015.

The section was opened today, see press release. Total costs are 114 million €. It's the last new Autobahn section in Mecklenburg-West Pomerania (home of Mrs. Merkel).

The northern A14 has a length of 93km. The southern A14 is 208km long. The gap in-between has a length of 112km, 6km are in service (Colbitz bypass), 8.5km are under construction, another 15km section should be started anytime "soon" (2018?).

The offical completion date of A14 is still 2022 (but very, very unlikely). The 155km segment between A24 and A2 (where are the new section and all remaining sections to be built) has total costs of 1.4 billion €, thereof 200 million € for EU ERDF.

Tunnels around Garmisch

According to a new article in Süddeutsche Zeitung about the tunnels it looks good:
Garmisch's tunnel dreams will be realized
- building permit for the Auerberg tunnel can come soon
- money for the Kramertunnel has been committed
- trees have been cut in November and next year works at the bridges over the Loisach will start
- works in the Kramertunnel will be resumed in 2019 and everything finished in 2024 at best case
- only the Wanktunnel is still delayed

All this is a merit of former Minister Alexander Dobrindt, which looks remarkable since the Süddeutsche Zeitung is not known to report in favour of CSU Ministers.

Btw: there even further projects on B2 south of Munich, most advanced is the tunnel in Starnberg

Auerbergtunnel seems a bit unnecessary... if I remember correctely there is plenty of space on the other side of the Loisach to build a new carriageway...

yes, there is plenty of space at the other side, but there is the river, the railway line and probably an additional local road, since its the only road in the valley. So you would probably need 2 big bridges and have to deal with the risk of floodings. This is an ecological sensitive area. The mighty Bund Naturschutz in Bayern (BN) however did not oppose to the Auerberg tunnel only the ÖDP did. So probably this is the faster and easier way. Money is not so much an issue since there is plenty at the moment...

B90n

An almost 14 kilometer new section of B90 opened to traffic today in Thüringen, from the new Stadtilm interchange of A71 to Nahwinden. It is part of the B90n upgrade between A71 and Rudolstadt.

The Landkreis Saalfeld-Rudolstadt has a population of 109,000 but had no high-standard connection to the west until now. B90n is a single carriageway road with passing lanes on grades.

Press release: https://www.thueringen.de/th9/tmil/p...371/index.aspx

A14

The completion of A14 from Magdeburg to Schwerin has been pushed back considerably:

2016:
Die A14-Nordverlängerung von Magdeburg nach Schwerin soll trotz des Streits im Jahr 2020 komplett fertig sein

http://www.radiosaw.de/a14-nordverla...d-weitergebaut


2017:
Die Fertigstellung der Autobahn 14 bis nach Magdeburg verzögert sich voraussichtlich um mehrere Jahre. Bislang hieß es, die Autos sollen bereits 2022 zwischen Wismar und Magdeburg durchgängig rollen. Der Termin sei nicht zu halten und verschiebe sich auf 2030, sagte der Staatssekretär im Bundesverkehrsministerium, Enak Ferlemann (CDU), dem NDR Nordmagazin.

https://www.ndr.de/nachrichten/meckl...obahn2128.html

So in one year the project was delayed by 10 years.
