Around 11,000 of Germany's 25,000 rail bridges are over 100 years old. Some 4% of them are in unsatisfactory condition and represent a rehabilitation value of €7.3 billion, according to 2021 reports from the website Behoerden Spiegel, citing data from the federal government.

Germany's waterways tell a similar story: Many bridges, locks and dams are old and in need of repair.

==================================================

LOL!

Germany's infrastructure may need some repairs, but it is nowhere near the absolute deterioration of the American infrastructure. Compare America's proposed infrastructure bill of over $2 trillion to Germany's proposed infrastructure repairs of $324 billion. And Germany will get more for their money than America.
