Autobahn in crisis – 74 billion kroner missing

Public coffers are low in Germany. For example, the company behind the German motorway network – Autobahn – is missing a whopping DKK 74 billion.

Back in December, Germany's government slammed the coffers in front of people in new electric cars, when a subsidy scheme for the cars ended with immediate effect.

The scheme was shelved in an attempt to patch a gaping hole in the German treasury. And now the newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung can reveal a little more about how bad things are.

That's what Auto Bild writes.

In total, just under 10 billion euros, which corresponds to 74 billion Danish kroner, are missing from the state treasury. Money that would otherwise have to be spent over the next four years.

Money that should have gone to work on around 4,500 dilapidated motorway bridges and sections.

At the moment, the German government, which consists of several parties, is negotiating Germany's economy and financial law for the coming years. And it looks bad.

At least when it comes to a large planned infrastructure plan, which Transport Minister Volker Wissing is behind. The money simply isn't there. Something the German response to the Rigsrevisionen, the so-called federal audit, already pointed out in January.

Another thing is that the company responsible for the operation of the Autobahn, Autobahn GmbH, lacks staff.

– It is necessary to add both personnel and finances to Autobahn GmbH, says the federal auditor's report, which also contains a solution.

Namely that the government saves money by dropping expansions of the motorway network and infrastructure in general. In other words, to spend money on improving the already existing network of motorways and bridges.
