It will be decades before the A4 is 2x3 all the way to the HU border. More urgent works include 2x2 A5 to the CZ border (to Brno), 2x2 S3 to the CZ border (to Jihlava and Prague), a 2x2 connection from the A8 near Ried am Innkreis past Braunau am Inn to connect with Germany's A94 (to Munich), an extension of the S31 from Eisenstadt to the A4 near Parndorf, etc.

In this decade, it would suffice to widen the A4 to 2x3 as far as the A6.

BTW, the proportion of lorries in the 20,000 AADT crossing the AT/HU border is huge.

a)A5 Nordautobahn - the construction of the next section between Schrick and Poysbrunn (+ 1x1 the bypass of Drasenhofen) is scheduled for this year. It is important step forward. I expect that the complete 2x2 A5-Motorway might be finished till 2017/2018. By the time there will be no transit road via any commune (currently Drasenhofen, Poysdorf, Wetzelsdorf and Erdberg) The fact is that the deadline for frontier sections (Poysbrunn - Drasenhofen - widening of the current B7-national road, completing of Drasenhofen-Bypass etc.) has been not fixed yet......

b)S3 - Weinviertler Schnellstrasse. The next section between Hollabrunn and Guntersdorf should be built up in 2014-2017. The layout will be similar as the section Hollabrunn-Stockerau, only 2+1 lines-highway with the grade-separated junctions. In the Czech Republic (we are talking about the shortest connection between Prague and Vienna) there are only plan of national road (No.38) improvement. Bypasses of Jihlava and Moravske Budejovice were built the construction of the bypass-road in Znojmo will go on.....

c)the connection Braunau am Inn - A8.at - I suppose that previous plans to build up the motorway have been cancelled or - at least - postponed indefinitely.

I wrote here some posts ago that I got a Parkenstrafe for 36€ in December.
Like a good citizen, I sent the money to their account the same week.

Now, I receive a letter that I had parked wrongly and I have to send 48€. Just checked my banking account, and the money was delivered, with the right code and everything.

I guess now I have to send an email or call the number and tell them I already payed. I won't pay them anything else.

Unless you've committed an offence twice within a short period...

No, the offence refers to the parking, street is the same, and I made sure not to repeat it.

Probably just a stupid mistake at the responsible Bezirkshauptmannschaft. Just call them and explain in a friendly manner and it will resolve itself, I think .

Which one would that be? He lives in Germany. When I get a speeding ticket it always goes through BH Schwaz, because that's where I live, no matter where in Austria they've clocked me.

You always have some clerk that is responsible for you. It usually says on the letter that you got.

I called there and gave then the id number on the letter. The guy checked, but said there is no record of money being transferred and told me to send them an E-Mail with the bank transfer details to localize where the money went. I did, hopefully it will be resolved.

There's no Bezirkshauptmannschaft in Vienna, only Magistrat and Bundespolizeidirektion (depending on the violation).

Hello, I have a quick question for you all -

The A6 opened in 2007, as far as I know. Was there a small section of A6 open before that, after the border crossing on the Slovak D4? Or if not - where did the traffic go after the border crossing?

Also : does anyone know if the border crossing on the D4/A6 was open for trucks?

Thanks!

Onto B50 at what is now Kittsee exit.

I'm not sure, but I somehow remember a 7,5 ton weight limit on the Austrian side before A6 was opened. However, it's quite possible that I confuse it with some other stretch.

As a side remark, a 50 ct fee will be introduced for using the restrooms on fuel stations and rest houses on Austrian motorways. In compensation, one gets a 50 ct voucher which can be used at any fuel station on Austrian motorways for fuel or goods from the mini-stores. They are valid for at least one year and up to five vouchers can be redeemed per purchase. This system is going to be adopted as more and more fuel stations started to charge for the restrooms in an unregulated way and Asfinag is obviously tired of going to trial against their tenants...

What I hate at Austrian motorways fuel stations: at the restroom there's always a lady looking angry at you to see how much money you leave on her table when you enter the restroom. If they want to toll the restrooms, they should do it in an elegant way, with the vouchers (like in the Marche shops).

That's exactly why this system is now introduced. Asfinag is totally fed up with those "beggar ladies" in front of the toilets, they even went to court over the situation. While the ruling was in favor of Asfinag, the fuel companies threatened to give up the rest areas, thus a compromise had to be made (Asfinag wanted free use for the toilets, but the rest area companies didn't go with it, so now this voucher system is introduced.)

In Germany the SANITAIR vouchers work fine. It is a small fee that prevents loitering

Weren't these "toilet-ladies" more a phenomenon in Lower Austria, Vienna and Burgenland? I can't remember having them seen west of St. Pölten.

Just those price-reduction tokens you get when using the lavatories are so useless if you always bring your own food instead of consuming some comparably expensive stuff at these rest areas



Such tokens are known in Switzerland as well (this one already expires after one month only )
