Traffic restrictions Kalk tunnel (B55a) / motorway junction Köln-Ost (Cologne-East)
Due to the general renovation of the Kalk tunnel on the B55a between the Zoobrücke and the Köln-Ost motorway junction, traffic restrictions may be in place near the trade fair grounds. During the entire construction period, only two lanes out of the usual three will be open in the tunnel in each direction of travel. The tunnel remains closed to HGVs over 7.5 tonnes.

HGVs over 7.5 tonnes already travelling on the A4 should take the signposted diversion from the Köln-Buchforst exit. This route leads to Frankfurter Strasse, then onto Vingster Ring and from there over the eastern access road (L 124) towards the trade fair grounds. Alternatively, you can take the route over the A4, Gremberg junction, to the eastern access road.

Additionally, the slip roads at the Köln-Ost motorway junction from the A3 to the B55a travelling towards Cologne and the access onto the B55a from Buchheimer Ring towards the city are closed. If you are travelling on the A3 from the north, leave the A3 at the Mülheim exit and follow the signs towards Köln Messe (via the Mülheim access road, Clevischer Ring, Bergischer Ring, Pfälzischer Ring).

If you are travelling on the A3 from the south, take the A4 at the Heumar motorway junction. At the Gremberg junction, take the A559 towards the eastern access road (L 124) and follow the signs to Köln Messe.
