Checking the air photos
(see: http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&ll=5...10986&t=k&z=17 )
it looks to me like a former grade, the original ramp leading to the southbound A-59 before the interchange was upgraded.

It was the exit to the A4 before the A59 was build.

New part of the A52 opened a few days ago. This part is located near the Dutch border.

The Dutch side will be a permanent expressway. I think the German expressway is just temporary until the whole road is cleared of construction sites.

Only 120 km/h allowed on dutch motorways? Is this strictly and often controlled by the police or can you sometimes allow yourselves a little bit faster ride ?

I think it would be really good if some old projects would be brought to life. like completing internal ring in Berlin. possibly A25 too, and some other motorways in ex Eastern Germany + urban motorways in Ruhr Area

I was wondering how the completion of the A14 (Magdeburg-Schwerin) is going? Is it yet U/C?

In my opinion, the highest priority should switch back from eastern Germany to western Germany. Many western German autobahns cannot handle the massive load of trucks. They need to be widened, and some gaps need to be completed.

A43 Münster - Wuppertal

Click on the title to view the full set

The A43 is a secondary Autobahn in the Ruhr area, it runs from Münster to Wuppertal, and this set covers all of that. The A43 is an alternative to the A1, which runs along the east side of Dortmund. The A43 is slightly longer. The A43 serves several larger cities, from north to south: Münster, Recklinghausen, Herne, Bochum, Witten and Wuppertal.

image hosted on flickr


56. Distance sign.
image hosted on flickr


57. Interchange Bochum-Querenburg.
