A1 mobil operates a section of Highway 1 between Hamburg and Bremen. As the revenues fall short of expectations, the Group demands from the federal government a million-dollar additional payment. The lawsuit also fails in the second instance.
The highway operator A1 mobile does not get the required million additional payment from the federal government. The Higher Regional Court (OLG) Celle dismissed a corresponding complaint of the company in appeal proceedings. A1 mobil operates a section of the Autobahn 1 between Hamburg and Bremen and had demanded 778 million euros in additional compensation from the Federal Republic, because revenue from toll revenues was lower than expected due to lower traffic volumes. Already the district court Hanover had dismissed the complaint, A1 mobil brought the case then before the next higher instance. "The district court has rightly decided," said a spokesman for the Celle OLG. According to the operator consortium, the risk of a change in the volume of traffic according to the contract "unlimited" itself took over.A1-mobile CEO Ralf Schmitz said, they have already been expected to confirm the earlier judgment. Now one will thoroughly examine the reasoning of the judges.
