The federal road 436 (abbreviation: B 436 ) leads from Weener near the Dutch border across East Friesland and the district of Friesland to Sande , where it meets the federal highway 29 (A 29) at the Sande junction . The entire route is around 70 kilometers.
Previous routes and names
The section from Weener to Hesel used to be the B 75 . With the completion of the largely parallel federal motorway 28 (A 28), however, this was largely downgraded to a rural road on the Ostfriesland-Oldenburg-Delmenhorst section.
District of Leer
The B 436 begins in the district of Leer at the junction Weener (departure from the federal motorway 31 (A 31), the so-called " Ostfriesenspieß "). It runs over Möhlenwarf , bypasses the city of Weener in the north, where it runs along the western bank of the Ems for about seven kilometers . It crosses the river at the Jann-Berghaus-Brücke and then turns north. As a four-lane city ring, it bypasses the city of Leer via Heisfelde to the west and north, in order to - briefly on a divided route - take the B 70 back west at the Spier intersection . It continues via Loga and Holtland to Hesel .
On an approximately five-kilometer section, it will initially continue as the B 72 until it finally branches off from this in Bagband . Via Großefehn it leads to Wiesmoor and there it leaves the Aurich district .
The B 436 leads past the villages of Russia and America to Friedeburg and bypasses the village of Horsten . Via Altgödens and Neustadtgödens it finally meets the A 29 a little south of Sande , where it ends or leads as Kreisstraße 99 to Sande train station .
Details can be found in the articles for the respective locations. The two villages Russia and America , which are next to each other near the main road - only about two kilometers apart - are a tourist attraction . The place-name signs are still popular photo opportunities today .
