Munich (ots) - Because the holidays in Hesse, Rhineland-Palatinate and Saarland as well as in parts of the Netherlands are already ending, the ADAC is expecting an increase in traffic jams this weekend, especially on the return routes.
However, quite a few motorists, for example from Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg, are only just starting their vacation, so disabilities must also be expected in the lanes heading south. In Saarland and parts of Bavaria, Saturday, August 15, is a public holiday (Assumption of Mary), which additionally stimulates excursion traffic in these two federal states.
There is still a risk of congestion on the access roads to the excursion areas, especially in the mountain and lake landscapes of Bavaria, but also on the coasts.
The high-risk motorways (both directions):
- trunk roads to and from the North and Baltic Seas
- A 1 Puttgarden - Hamburg - Bremen
- A 1 / A 3 / A 4 Cologne Ring
- A 2 Dortmund - Hanover - Berlin
- A 3 Passau - Nuremberg - Würzburg
- A 5 Basel - Karlsruhe - Frankfurt
- A 7 Flensburg - Hamburg - A 7 Füssen / Reutte - Ulm - Würzburg - Kassel
- A 8 Salzburg - Munich - Stuttgart
- A 9 Munich - Nuremberg - Berlin
- A 10 Berliner Ring
- A 24 Berlin - Hamburg
- A 31 Emden - Bottrop
- A 61 Ludwigshafen - Koblenz - Mönchengladbach
- A 81 Stuttgart - Singen
- A 93 Inntal triangle - Kufstein
- A 95 / B 2 Munich - Garmisch-Partenkirchen
- A 96 Munich - Lindau
- A 99 Munich bypass Although the volume of traffic on the transit routes abroad will be very lively, large traffic jams are likely to remain the exception. The classic tourist routes Tauern, Fernpass, Brenner, Karawanken, Rheintal and Gotthard routes, the highways to and from the Italian, Croatian and French coasts and the access roads of the excursion regions in the subordinate road network of the Alpine countries are still at risk for traffic jams. In Italy there should be a lot going on on the traditional Ferragosto weekend (Ferragosto holiday on August 15th). At the borders with Denmark, between Austria and Slovenia and between Slovenia and Croatia, waiting times due to intensive identity checks are to be expected.
