The traffic load is not evenly distributed across the Berlin road network. It is particularly high along the sections of the urban motorway and on the routes leading to the city centre from the surrounding areas, which mostly serve as federal highways.
Table 7 illustrates the road sections with the highest weekday traffic loads in relation to the total number of motor vehicles and trucks. The section of the A100 motorway between the Messedamm Süd exit and the Kurfürstendamm exit is one of the most heavily travelled roads in Germany, with approx. 196,000 vehicles per 24 hours. With respect to peak truck loads, the distribution is similar across the individual motorway sections. It differs across urban roads, however, as the location of inner-city commercial and industrial areas influences the distribution of truck journeys.
