Between Nordbrücke and Bonn-Nordost: Construction site on the A565 to last longer

Bonn. The NRW State Roads Office provided new up-to-date information about the mammoth renewal projects on the Bonn motorways at busy locations. Further dates are planned for August and September. Schaffrath announced bad news with the ongoing three-lane expansion on the A565 in the section between Nordbrücke and the Bonn-Nordost junction in the direction of Cologne. There, the hard shoulder will be developed into a driving lane. "Due to the installation of an unplanned retaining wall and the necessary replanning of the drainage system, we will not be finished until the end of the year," said Schaffrath. Drivers will still have to face narrow lanes for the time being.
