Don't mention that stupid CZ oval. I took that route last week, and it's completely pointless. And then I discovered that they sign the route to Prague via the S3 rather than via Brno, further adding to my misery. The state of the signage in Vienna (after coming off the A22 following Brno signs) is also absolutely disgraceful.

The S6 route to Graz is absolutely enjoyable, on the other hand

They sign Vienna from Prague via the same route, don't be they?

Wien appears on the begining of D1 in Prague, then disappears for more than 100 kms, on junction near Jihlava (I/38, E58) Wien appears again at once, but the best route is really via Brno and R52, E461.

Landslide hits Felbertauernstrasse

Today, a large landslide has hit the Felbertauernstrasse, near the village of Matrei im Osttirol. Technically not a highway, this road is a major transport route in Austria and therefore worth mentioning, i think.

Rescue workers say it is believed a car was hit by the slide and is stuck under tons of mud and rock. The road is closed as workers are trying to start a rescue operation.

Eye wittnesses stated that they heard a loud 'boom' right before the slide occurred.

More info here (only in Dutch, sorry): http://www.nu.nl/buitenland/3421981/...schuiving.html

No info on Austrian news sites yet, though.

Gallery ceiling seems collapsed:

Probably it was designed only for snow avalanches and not for much heavier landslides. Here it looks that part of the mountain came down, that would destroy almost any type of road protection.

EDIT:
very short video and news from ORF:

According to the road owner, it is a complete structural collapse.

This is some serious landslide. Looks like the gallery just after the Felbertauerntunnel.

E7 used to run from Roma to Warszawa between 1950 and 1983. Which means the sign is at least 30 years old.

Are there any plans for a Vienna bypass ringroad?

A significant extension of the S1 is (soon to be) under construction on the east side of Vienna.

Don't make us Austrians faster than we are . Planned start of works is next year for the section Grossenzersdorf - Süssenbrunn and 2018 for Grossenzersdorf - Schwechat (Danube tunnel). Completion is planned 2016 and 2024, respectively.

Hello dear Austrian friends. A friend of mine is travelling from Graz to Linz on wednesday. He is wondering if road is OK especially regarding the floods (Linz city)?

Thank you!

Styria wasn't affected and everything should be fine in Linz by tomorrow. So no problem ahead flood related.

An article about the development of the Austrian motorway network;

http://www.kleinezeitung.at/allgemei...-zu-ende.story

Quotes;

Wenn Sie heute Spurrillen auf der Autobahn sehen, sind sie von Lkw und nicht von holländischen Wohnwagen.

A very large proportion of the Asfinag revenues come from trucks - and for a good reason, the bulk of motorway maintenance is due to wear and tear from trucks.

Große Projekte wird es in zehn Jahren nur noch ganz wenige geben.

I think he's right here as well. Austria has a very well-developed motorway network, with little need for massive expansion after the last missing links to neighboring countries are completed (especially towards CZ/SK/H). Additionally, congestion is not a major issue outside the Wien metropolitan area. The A1 widening is almost completed, and maybe the A4 needs to be widened to 2x3 lanes near Wien, but that's about it. Additionally, most tunnels are now equipped with two tubes.

The only thing that bothers me was the short-sighted planning of the S1 south of Wien (Vösendorf - Schwechat). It was already loaded to capacity within a few years of opening. It should've been built with 2x3 lanes or at least with a spatial reservation for a third lane.
