Guess the highway

Maybe it's time to start a game, similar to guess the city ones.

There are some rules though. The one that guesses the picture first, is allowed to post the next one. When there is no response in say, 24 hours, anyone can submit a new one. No new ones should be submitted unless the previous one is guessed correctly within 24 hrs.

Some other rules:
> Hints are allowed
> The pic must have something recognizeable, no rural highways that could be anywhere, unless they feature something special.
> All kinds of pics are allowed, Googled, selfmade, Google Earth, Live Earth etc.
> Don't make it too hard to guess
> No Struma
> The North must be on the upper side of the picture.
> Remember people are from all parts over the world, so again, keep it recognizeable.

I'll start with the first one.

That is correct. I guess you can also tell the near exact location?

Berlin A100, isn't it? I think I know the power plant.

EDIT: Oh and the S-Bahn of course!

--------
Berlin A100 interchanging with A104 (and obviously the S-bahn running close was the main hint)
