According to ADAC, there are currently around 1,000 construction sites on the German motorway network. Besides high traffic volumes and accidents, they are the main cause of traffic jams and delays on the Autobahn.

The association believes some stretches of motorway that are under construction during the summer months are likely to be prone to congestion.

This includes the following motorways:

  • A3 Würzburg-Nuremberg in the entire area several construction sites
  • A4 Chemnitz towards Dresden, between Dreieck Dresden-West and Dresden-Neustadt
  • A8 Stuttgart-Karlsruhe, near Pforzheim
  • A9 Nuremberg-Halle/Leipzig, between Kreuz Nürnberg-Ost and Kreuz Nürnberg
  • A45 Hagen-Gießen, in both directions between Lüdenscheid-Nord and Lüdenscheid, due to the closure of the Rahmede viaduct

ADAC warns that drivers should expect traffic jams and longer waiting times on these sections, especially on public holidays and during the school summer holidays.
