German Autobahns

<< < (41/41)

This is a huge problem for any oversize load in Germany. There are so many bridges that have a 40 - 44 ton weight limit (some much less) that planning is complex and requires lengthy detours. A trip that would normally be a 6 hour drive turns into three overnight stages.

I've recently heard a story at work where they had to ship wind turbine components from Denmark to the Netherlands, which means a trip through Germany. They had to apply for a permit over 2 months in advance and it took them 3 days (nights) to cross through Germany.

Even bridge replacement projects in Germany suffer from this, because the steel needs to be transported by road.
