S10 Mühlviertler Schnellstraße

Construction of the second tube of the Tunnel Neumarkt (north of Linz) officially started on Sunday. The tunnel passes under the town of Neumarkt and the B310 highway runs through one tube of it. It will be part of the S10 expressway, and the second tube will be constructed. The first tube opened September 21, 2003.

A2 Süd Autobahn

The widening of A2 south of Wien (Vienna) has been completed between Baden and Kottingbrunn. The motorway has been widened to 2x4 lanes, and the 8-lane section now extends 8 kilometers further south to Kottingbrunn. It is the widest motorway of Austria and serves an urbanized corridor between Wien and Wiener Neustadt. This section carries approximately 100.000 vehicles per day.

Is there any speed limits on the new section of A2 motorway? There is often speed limits (80km/h, 100km/h) on A2 at urban area.

Any plans to widen any parts of the A4 near Vienna?

That part of A4 handles almost 90.000 vehicles per day, which is very high for 2x2 lanes.

Which part? After Schwechat traffic is pretty normal for 2x2.

Sorry, could we speak more precise? The motorway until the airport has 2×3 lanes, if I remember correctly. In which point is 90,000 measured?

There is hardly ever congestion there. Only after major accidents.

I would like to see better surface on the A4, especially towards Hungary.
It's not one of the best I've seen in Austria.

2x3 is only between S1 interchange and airport (7 km) and more than adequate (signage is another story however). It is more congested on 2x2 from S1 toward A23 in the city but this is probably to be changed after S1 is done between Schwechat to S1/S2 on the other side of the Donau river. SO A4 actually doesn't need any widenings.

I doubt if the S1 east of Wien will actually relieve A4 of a substantial amount of traffic. I think it will have an impact on A23, but less on A4, because there will be no east-west connections north of the Donau River until you reach Süßenbrunn. A spur is planned from future S1 west towards the city, but it's not planned all the way to A23/S2, and it's too far north to connect to A22.

So, if you get from A4 and you want to go to the northern part of Wien, A4-A23/A22 will still be the only viable option, unless you want to drive on urban streets from S1. It would be different if A22 was extended southeast to S1, but that seems very unlikely at this point. This is also because they rightly don't want A22 to become a major route for through traffic (S1 is designed for that).



There is a lot of industry along the A4 corridor, plus it's the only connection from the city to the airport. On the other hand, there is not a large volume of trucks on this part of A4, because east-west through traffic uses S1 to bypass the city on the south.

I don't see much problem in A4, more in A4-A23 interchange, which was not designed for such high traffic. Widening of A4 without appropriate (and very costly) reconstruction of that interchange probably won't have much influence.
