This Saturday, the Elbtunnel in Hamburg will be impassable. The reason for closing, are works related to the extension of the A7 motorway.
From 10 pm on Saturday to 9 am on Sunday, the Elbtunnel will be closed in both directions. After adjusting the signalling systems for the upcoming expansion of the A7 in the tunnel, it is necessary to test them. These tests will be carried out this coming weekend – says the Hamburg Transport Office.
Therefore, the A7 motorway towards Flensburg will be closed between Heimfeld and Volkspark junctions, and to the south between Volkspark and Hausbruch junctions
Works in the tunnel, the office explains, take place at night and on weekends, because then the traffic is the least.
