Schoenefeld Airport rejoices in new status of city airport with the opening of the airport motorway23.05.2008
The final 700-metre section of the airport motorway A113 which opened today closes the last remaining gap between the Berlin city motorway A111 and the A113 at Waltersdorf/Schoenefelder Kreuz. Now people getting to and from Schoenefeld Airport have a choice of three fast travel options: either by S-Bahn local rail or by regional rail service or on the airport motorway. The completion of the motorway also means that the new Capital City Airport BBI will be fully linked to the German motorway network when it opens in 2011.
Construction work on the last section of the motorway started in December 2007. The old Schoenefeld north runway was officially closed last November and was demolished to make way for the final 700 metre stretch of motorway.
