I think it should be at least mentioned here: A38 was opened.

Well, there's one last part missing, which is often jammed and will be opened in 2009.

None

The section Eisleben - Halle opened 2 days ago.

Today a 7.7km section of the A71 opened today, including the Schmücketunnel:


The missing part of the A39, which you mentioned in post 427 hasn't opened today but should opened until chrismas.

Horrible. Are the barriers reinforced on this viaduct? They should do, to prevent accidents like this. If the barrier had prevented the truck from falling, the driver had a much greater chance of surviving.

There's no such barrier that will stop a truck.

They should have on viaducts that are that high. It might cost a lot of money, but in case of this high viaducts it should be: safety first.

Weren't barriers instead of stopping trucks suppose to be shiny?

But this accident reminds me of this one on the Wiehltal Bridge (A4).

That was a little worse, damage wise. They had to replace the whole bridge because of that explosion. But yes, it was quite similar.

A truck that drives 90km/h and weighs 30 - 40 tonnes creates quite some kinetic energy. I also doubt if any barrier can withstand that. Usually, trucks don't hit that barrier dead on, but on a certain angle. Usually, the barrier is sturdy enough to absorb some of that energy and push the truck back on the road again. But it looks like the truck hit the barrier dead on and smashed trough it. I wonder if such accidents will happen on say, the Viaduc de Millau which towers nearly 300 meters above the ground.

I think you can be fined for having your TomTom placed that way. It should not be in your line of sight, so you need to place it much lower. I have my TomTom at the bottom left corner of my windscreen. You see many people having their TomTom at the middle of their windshield though.

^Normally my dad places it a lot lower. On the ride back it was placed in the lower left corner.
We also didn't had a environment sticker (?) for in the big german cities. No controles yet.
