A49 Motorway

This 30-year Public Private Partnership is part of a larger plan to improve German motorways, the A-Model program. Launched in 2005 by the German Federal Government, it aims to refurbish, upgrade and develop more than 20 essential but outdated and congested motorways.



The A49 Project is located in the German State of Hesse, between Kassel and Gießen, northeast of Frankfurt. The projects consists of the design, construction, financing, operation and maintenance of two sections of the A49 highway, including a new interchange to the A5 motorway and the take-over of 2 existing sections of the A49 for operation and maintenance by the project company. The total length of the project is c. 61km, whereof 31km are to be built.

The A49 project was developed to improve an important transport corridor and to divert traffic from notoriously jammed villages and city centers along the existing local roads. It is also an important link to the main German north-south axis, as it connects to the A7 around Kassel.

Construction of the motorway started in September 2020. Take-over of operation and maintenance of the existing sections will start in July 2022, and the whole road will be open to traffic in November 2024.
