Forget German roads, they are poor, I am wondering when Germany finally will manage to apply soft asphalt instead of the concretelike asphalt. They should finally use softer variations of asphalt so that the roads are more confortable. But as some say, the harder asphalt might be better for trucks than Hungarian, Bulgarian or Slovenian asphalt but itīs definatly not very confortable.

stop trolling, radi!

the longest stretches of Gelbe Autobahnen might be the B6n between Bernburg (A14) and Goslar west of the A395, though the last section near Bernburg will be finished in 2010. Or the B2/B17 Donauwörth - Augsburg (A8) - Landsberg (A96).
Both should have a length of ~70-80km.
If finished anytime the longest Gelbe Autobahn should be the B15n with ~150km between Saalhaupt near Regensburg (A93) and Rosenheim (A8). This is the missing link between the two parts of the A93. The existing A93 stretch between Saalhaupt and Holledau (A9) was once planned to be numbered as A90, coming from Augsburg.

German roads are wonderful. And it's not up to the road to be "soft" to give you a comfortable ride, that's the job of your vehicle. Would you like soft rails when you take a train?

German roads are good in many areas but in others are not that impressive, certainly they do not live up to their billing what with all this 'fastest roads in the world' talk.

Firstly they are clogged up with cars and trucks because they are free, which constantly cut into the fast lane, secondly the speed limit *constantly* changes, which is so annoying. Just make it all 130km/h like in France and be done with it. Don't even bother having an unlimited speed section if 2 miles down the road it switches to 100km/h and then 2 miles further to 120km/h. Thirdly they are constantly under construction, I mean seriously, how many times can you rebuild the same road?

Heh, yeah Germany is notorious for it's many "baustelles". I also wondered why some take so much time. Some roads are under reconstruction for years in a row.

maybe because they canīt build good quality roads like Hungary, Hungary build smooth motorways and they are always free, Germanys hard surface isnīt cofortable and there are lots of bumps, reconstructed roads allready look faded out after only two!!! years, WTF.

So? Donīt you know that there is exorbitant high toll for trucks in Germany so that some use nationalroads and minor roads instead? And if you think the motorways would be any better with toll you are poor. In Germany they use very hard materials on porpuse to last long, they donīt carry if the motorway is any confortable or feels like a rollercoaster.

I'm an American, and I personally like British English better. There's more style and class to it haha. As for the squeezing toothpaste sound, I think you meant southern America (Texas, Florida, Louisiana, etc.)

Germany may use harder concrete asphalt, but their roads are much more durable that way. Asphalt will need to be replaced in about 8 to 10 years depending on their usage, where concrete can last for 20. I'm sure it's especially important in sections with unrestricted speeds. I think Germany's pavements are usually non-porous right?
