BERLIN, Sept. 30 (UPI) -- The last stretch of Germany's original Autobahn motorway, built in 1936 during the Hitler regime, is about to disappear, a newspaper report said.
The original four-kilometer (2.48 mile) section of the A11, which links Berlin to Szczecin, Poland, suffers from cracks and potholes, the German newspaper Welt am Sonntag reported, and is the last remaining part of the 3,000 kilometer (1,864 mile) roadway built in Germany prior to the advent of world War II.
"The condition of the roadway is unbearable. Everyone drives carefully on it," said Frank Gotzmann, director of the nearby town of Gartz.
Renovation, and removal of the 25-meter (82 feet) concrete slabs that comprise the road, is planned for 2015 if funding can be found, the German news website TheLocal.de said.
