|Bundesstrasse 243a in Germany|
|Operator:||Federal Republic of Germany|
|Overall length:||2 km|
The federal highway 243a in Germany branches off the federal highway 243 in an easterly direction at Bockenem in Lower Saxony and leads as a feeder road to junction 65 Bockenem of the federal highway 7 . The B 243a is only around 2 km long.
The main road was built to ensure the connection of the places along the B 243 in the Hildesheim - Bockenem area to the A 7 in the direction of Kassel and to bypass the junction and the place Rhüden . It also directs the traffic coming from the L500 state road ( Lutter am Barenberge ) around Bockenem.
It is used by alternative toll traffic and should therefore be subject to tolls along with all other federal roads according to the original plans. However, it does not fall under the changed criteria, as the required minimum length (four kilometers in accordance with Paragraph 2, Letter e of the Federal Highway Toll Act ) is not given.
