Last time this road was used by trucks, was at the end of WWII. The first army vehicles passed the very tight Loibl tunnel on 4 December 1944, and it was fully compleated in spring 1945.

The Slovenian side is said to be the steepest road in the Alps - up to 32%.

Maximum or average gradient? Because if it's average it would be one of the steepest roads in the world!

No, as I said, up to 32%. Average is 14%, at least according to Wikipedia.

A259 Bosham, near Chichester. This road lost its trunk status since opening Havant-Chichester A27, dual carriageway.





And nice, unused petrol station alongside the road.


A 259 in the background.


Lovely vintage pump.




Ye olde, good imperials era.

Note: there was - partially - the last missing stretch of the A2-motorway before 1999.

I drove many times from Völkermarkt to Villach before 1999. The Völkermarkt-Klagenfurt road was 4-laned though, and we had to drive through Klagenfurt.

Yes, exactly. The B70 between Klagenfurt and Völkermarkt was 4-lined. In 1992 the motorway-bypass of Völkermarkt was completed. You had to leave the motorway at the junction Völkermarkt-West (also in video). This route was very busy. I remember the hamlet Klein Venedig (on B70), Little Venice......In 1999 this last missing section of the A2-motorway was opened - with several artificial tunnels.
In Klagenfurt there was the option to go through Südring and to continue on A2 motorway at Minimunus Park. Nowadays there is the motorway A2 with northern-bypass of Klagenfurt. The former A2-motorway in Klagenfurt serves partially as the parking place.
In early 90s, it was a bit confusing situation directly in Klagenfurt. The A2-motorway was not completed, the direction to Völkermarkt (B70) was signed as "MOTORWAY TO GRAZ", "WIEN" was signed as the national road connection via Friesach, Bruck an der Mur and Semmering.....as the original route Vienna-Venice (nowadays: S37-B317-S36-S6, anyway still the shortest connection)....

Interesting, I don't remember that, I didn't watch signs too much back then.

As I write this I'm going on the N-330 road between Zaragoza and Huesca. I can't believe back when A-23 motorway wasn't yet built all traffic used this road. Traffic jams and backups were frequent at the end of long weekends, especially in winter. By the year 2000, the motorway (Then also numbered N-330, with this old road branded N-330a) was completed and all jams were gone.

What about the sector between Huesca and Sabinanigo? There is an old road there, rather ancient one (looks like it has old bridges and the like). Did it go over the mountains (where today there are tunnels)?

It was called C-138 and was partly used for the new road, so it's not fully drivable today. It didn't climb much higher than current N-330.

C-136, not C-138 (Which ran Barbastro-Ainsa-Ordesa national park, and it was planned to reach the French border at Bujaruelo pass). Anyway, now with that section of N-330 being upgraded into A-23 most of the old road will be rebuilt for slow vehicles. Also, back in the day, the best way to get into the mountains was what is now A-132 and A-1205 (Then numbered N-240 and N-330) via Ayerbe.
