Traffic jam forecast: Construction sites: It can be congested on some motorways

Berlin/Munich (dpa/tmn)
Even if there is less activity on the motorways after the summer travel wave: Travelers cannot get on everywhere without waiting – autumn vacationers and over 1000 construction sites often slow down the flow.

Overall, traffic on the motorways has decreased compared to the past few weeks. However, over the coming weekend (23rd to 25th September) they will occasionally fill up in some places and will then be noisy ADAC “heavily burdened”.

This is due to travelers who are not bound by school holidays together with day-trippers who are “criss-crossing”, he says Auto Club Europe (ACE). They are often drawn to the mountains and the coasts.

The day-trippers often cavort on the secondary routes. Wine festivals or the Oktoberfest in Munich (until October 3rd) can also ensure more traffic in the region.

The more than 1000 construction sites counted by the ADAC also become a bottleneck with a risk of traffic jams. In addition, road closures are active or announced for sections of the A3, A7, A8, A43, A44 and A61.

Commuter traffic, which according to ACE keeps the risk of traffic jams high throughout Germany, has to be taken into account as early as Friday afternoon. Here especially between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m.

More traffic is also expected on the routes to the Alps and the Mediterranean on Saturday. This also applies to the routes home from the south. On Sunday, the ACE expects some holiday traffic in both directions as well as day trippers on the secondary routes – especially when the weather is nice.

The car clubs consider possible traffic jams and delays on the routes to and from the coasts of the North and Baltic Seas and on the following routes (often in both directions) at the weekend:

a 1

Cologne – Dortmund – Bremen – Hamburg – Lübeck

A 3

Frankfurt/Main – Würzburg – Nuremberg

A 5

Frankfurt/Main – Karlsruhe – Basel

A 6

Mannheim – Heilbronn – Nuremberg

A 7

Würzburg – Ulm – Füssen/Reutte

A 8

Karlsruhe – Stuttgart – Munich – Salzburg

A 9

Nuremberg – Munich

A 81

Heilbronn – Stuttgart – Singing

A 93



Munich – Garmisch-Partenkirchen

A 96

Kreuz Memmingen

A 99

Bypass Munich

Travelers are also on the classic holiday and transit routes in Austria and Switzerland. Northbound and southbound traffic can be expected over the weekend. As in Germany, this also applies to the secondary routes and the access roads to the valleys, especially when the weather is nice.

In Switzerland there may be waiting times before entering the Gotthard tunnel. The ACE suggests the San Bernardino route (A 13) as an alternative if the waiting time is more than one hour.

In addition, the Gotthard tunnel is currently being Maintenance work blocked several times. According to the ADAC, weekend nights are not affected.

Regionally, drivers in the Alpine countries should also be prepared for cattle drives, which can lead to road closures.

According to the ADAC, you should be prepared for short waiting times at the borders of neighboring countries. How long you have to wait at the border from Austria to Germany at the Walserberg (Salzburg – Bad Reichenhall), Kiefersfelden (Kufstein Süd – Kiefersfelden) and Suben (Ort i. Innkreis – Pocking) crossings can be seen at the Austrian infrastructure company Asfinag on-line.
