The closure will last until 5 a.m. Friday morning. The reason is the expansion of the A7. A signposted U11 diversion route will be set up, reports Via Niedersachsen.
- A7 disabilities from April 25 at Hann. mouths: The Autobahn in the direction of Hanover is between the slip roads Hann. Münden/Staufenberg-Lutterberg and Hann.
