TRAFFIC IN THE NEW ELBE TUNNEL IN THE YEARS OF OPERATION 1975 TO 1977 - A FIRST PROGRESS REPORT

DER VERKEHR IM NEUEN ELBTUNNEL IN DEN BETRIEBSJAHREN 1975 BIS 1977 - EIN ERSTER ERFAHRUNGSBERICHT

THE ARTICLE REPRESENTS A FIRST ASSESSMENT OF THE OPERATING PERIOD SO FAR. IN AN ANALYSIS OF THE YEARLY, WEEKLY AND DAILY TUNNEL TRAFFIC, TEMPORAL FLUCTUATIONS IN THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF TRAFFIC, DIRECTIONAL TRAFFIC AND HEAVY DUTY TRAFFIC ARE INVESTIGATED. THE CONSTRUCTION OF THREE TUNNEL CHANNELS MAKES IT POSSIBLE TO ADAPT TO THE AMOUNT OF TRAFFIC. NEVERTHELESS, THE TRAFFIC CONGESTION IN THE CONFINED SPACE INSIDE THE CHANNELS OF THE TUNNEL IS CONSIDERABLE. THE EXTENT, CAUSE AND EFFECTS OF TRAFFIC BOTTLENECKS ARE DESCRIBED ALONG WITH THE MEASURES BEING TAKEN TO RELIEVE THE CONGESTION. IN ADDITION, TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS AND VEHICLE FIRES IN THE VICINITY OF THE ELBE TUNNEL HAVE BEEN EXPRESSED STATISTICALLY.
