Since 1932 the Germans have been driving on motorways right across the country. Compared with other European countries, Germany has the second largest motorway network - only the Spanish route network has more kilometres. In addition, the German highways are among the safest on our continent.
In 2017, the German Bundestag decided to reorganise the financial relationship between the Federal Government and the states. Up to then, the route network had been managed centrally by the federal government, but the implementation was carried out by the individual federal states according to federalist principles. The reform of the federal trunk road administration set the foundation for the establishment of the federally owned GmbH in September 2018.
As of 1 January 2021, the federal motorway GmbH will start its business activities and henceforth manage the essential asset of the motorway. Its many and varied tasks include the planning, construction, operation, maintenance and financing of the 13,000 motorway kilometres in Germany. In order to be able to regulate financing and management centrally and thus ensure the effective use of resources and quality assurance of the motorways, this massive reform of infrastructure policy was carried out.
Autobahn GmbH becomes the youngest and at the same time the largest infrastructure operator in Germany, with up to 15,000 employees. From 2021, the newly founded company, headquartered in Berlin, will be represented nationwide by 10 subsidiaries, 41 regional offices, 42 traffic control centres and 189 motorway maintenance depots.
