Federal road 43a
|Bundesstrasse 43a in Germany|
|Operator:||Federal Republic of Germany|
|Overall length:||7.5 km|
The federal highway 43a (abbreviation: B 43a ) is a motorway-like connection road between the Hanauer Kreuz ( A 45 Dortmund / A 66 Fulda ) and the junction with the B 45 near the Hanau junction of the A 3 ( Cologne - Frankfurt am Main - Würzburg) ).
The B 43a became known nationwide when the gap in the road in the Hanau-Wolfgang area was completed, but the noise protection measures were not completed. Actually, the road should not have been opened to traffic yet, but the residents concerned and the authorities found a compromise, so that the traffic could close the connection before the noise barrier was completed - albeit with restrictions (only one lane per direction and limitation of the Speed to a maximum of 50 km / h) - could use.
