The rest areas on the east and west sides of the A31 have been completely renovated and expanded, according to motorway operator Die Autobahn; 143 new truck park spaces have been added together with ten spaces for buses.

However, the work is not yet entirely complete. At the beginning of February, the construction of a new toilet building began, which should get ready for use in the second half of 2022. Until then, portable toilets will serve as a substitute.

In addition, a weighing device of the Federal Office for Goods Transport is to be installed on the Eastern truck site in the course of the year. Weight checks for trucks will be carried out there in the future.

The concession process for a gas fuel station operator is scheduled to start this year. The multi-stage, EU-wide award procedure takes about a year. This will probably be followed by a construction period of one and a half years before the filling station can go into operation.
