Nice pictures cinxxx!

Which was the usual speed limit on S6? How is the road? I will drive on it in February next year (if the world doesn't end today ).

Speed limit is 130, but I think it was lower on wet conditions, but there were also some very curvy sections on S6 and S35. Also lots of tunnels, very nice road.

We returned on the A2, but it was night and fog, so I didn't see much.
On A2 there is also a section with many curves.

I drove through the new tube of the Pfändertunnel, I assume they are now renovating the old one before opening it up to the public. Does anyone know when traffic can use the full 2x2 setup?

Great quality of pictures inside tunnels, probably one of the best I've ever seen. I can feel the speed of your car. Great job!

After entering Austria on A4 from Hungary there are many Rettungsgasse signs on the autobahn:



Entering Vienna:



Aaaaaaand... Rettungsgasse in action before Vienna because of congestion:





Of course that a Romanian (from Oltenia region ) doesn't know about this Rettun-what? thing...









Wien.

To be honest these signs are worthless not only for foreigners, but also for an average Austrian.

They should be also written at least in English and provide a clear graphic description as of how to act in case of a traffic jam.

As for the Rettungsgasse, I think it's a bit silly to drive like that every time there's a traffic jam. If there's an ambulance approaching, you can easily move aside.

exactly. and therefore i just dont give a sh*t about rettungsgasse. i am not willing to do this ridiculous bullsh*t every morning/evening when i go/come to/from work. if i get sued someday, ill pay happily...

there are way enough signs in vienna (and austria) to tell you if its just a traffic jam or an accident that slows down the traffic.

I don't understand why they don't make bigger boards if they already want do duplicate and triplicate all the written stuff. I always found most signage around Wien to be much too confusing.

The Austrian signage, especially around Vienna, is some of the worst I've seen anywhere in the world.

The Austrian signage would be OK, if those morons-in-charge would adhere to the guidelines published in the RVS (max two destinations plus the next exit on the main lanes, max two destinations on the exit arrow). But they tend to quadruple the allowed number of destinations in the Vienna area .

they tend to forget cities too: the city of wels is nowhere mentioned on A1 (nearly 60000 inhabitants), first sign mentioning wels is at A1/A7 interchange near linz. also A25 appears nowhere on A1 until linz.
