Test of new German road repair scheme halts traffic
First publishedon www.WorldHighways.com
Traffic on the A 40 motorway in the German province of North-Rhine Westphalia will be stopped from using the key highway to allow for tests on a new road repair scheme.
The vehicle ban on the motorway near Essen begins on 7 July, 2012. Sources close to the scheme say that without the complete closure of the A40 motorway, the work would have taken two years to complete.
No details of what the new road repair scheme consists of have been disclosed.
