Bundesautobahn 52

Bundesautobahn 52 (translates from German as Federal Motorway 52, short form Autobahn 52, abbreviated as BAB 52 or A 52) is an autobahn in western Germany. It starts at the Dutch-German border near the community of Niederkrüchten, district of Viersen. From Elmpt it runs northeast.

Its westernmost part serves as an important commuter route into Düsseldorf. The autobahn becomes Bundesstraße 7 shortly before the Rheinkniebrücke, which leads into the Düsseldorf city centre. Traffic of the A 52 is routed through the Düsseldorf city centre on the B 8 and B 1 secondary roads up to Düsseldorf-Mörsenbroich, where the A 52 becomes a road of its own again.

The autobahn has three parts:

  1. Dutch-German border - Niederkrüchten-Elmpt - Mönchengladbach - Düsseldorf-Heerdt
  2. Düsseldorf-Mörsenbroich - Dreieck Essen-Ost
  3. Gladbeck - Gelsenkirchen - Marl-Nord

A new connection from the Dutch border to Elmpt opened in May 2009.[1] An extension connecting the interchange Essen-Ost with the interchange Gladbeck has been proposed for several years, but has not been built yet, due to the need for several kilometers of tunnels below densely populated areas.
