The national highway 156 (abbreviation: B 156 ) is a federal highway in the German states of Brandenburg and Saxony . It begins in Großräschen on the B 169 and ends in Bautzen on the B 96 . Between Jämlitz-Klein Düben and “Bendels Kreuzung” in Krauschwitz it is congruent with the B 115 .


The National Highway 156 linked to 1945 Muskau (now Bad Muskau ) on the Neisse, where she attended the National Highway 115 had its beginnings with Triebel (now Trzebiel ) at the former Reich Straße 122 . It came under Polish administration for practically its entire length in 1945 and today forms part of the Polish Droga krajowa 12 .

In addition to the then highway 115, the F 156 was one of the most important roads in the Weißwasser district during the GDR era ; among other things, it served as a delivery route for the construction of the Boxberg power plant . Due to the Nochten open-cast lignite mine , the route between Weißwasser / Oberlausitz and Boxberg had to be relocated . This part was led as a concrete road east around the opencast mine. Due to the Bärwalde opencast mine between Boxberg and Uhyst (Spree) , the road had to be relocated to the west. As a result of these relocations, a 29 km long route is now required for 17 km as the crow flies.

New construction and expansion of the B 156a / B 160

The federal highway 156 was to be rebuilt from Weißwasser to the west via loop at least as far as the B 97 near Spremberg (or up to the A 13 near Großräschen ) as the federal highway 160 (old working name: B 156a ). In July 2011, the preliminary planning was canceled by the Federal Ministry of Transport.

In the area of ​​the city of Bautzen , the B 156 was re-routed in the course of the construction of a bypass road and the relocation of the Bautzen-Ost motorway junction in the 2000s.

A bypass to the west is planned for the Niedergurig area in order to bypass the narrow curves of the through-town in future.
