I think this motorway was constructed long time age and fashion in building was a bit different

Exactly.

However, the A26 Linzer Autobahn will offer some sort of relief for the urban roads in Linz and the A7 when its first section opens in 2014.

The population of the city proper is 189,343 (2007), and 271,000 in the agglomeration.
Larger than i thought, one main road is not very good in distributing traffic there then.

More or less. IMO it starts to close to the city. You can't directly connect to A1, you have to use A7 nonetheless...

A crappy "visualization" of the new Danube crossing, Linz' fourth Danube bridge.


The red parts are tunnels:


North is to the right:
Note that all the red parts are underground! Will be pretty interesting I guess:

This is what will be built:


And this is what would make sense IMO...


Perhaps I'd even add a western branch between N Linz and A1...?

frankly, i don't like too much A26 route because it will be also partially city motorway and city will eat it in few years. imo the bypass should be done somewhere between Asten and Galneukirchen (as east option), or from knotwn Traun to to Linz nord (as western option, David also made this one as his option). but i prefer much more this eastern option

As I said, it doesn't make much sense.

(Don't be confused by my new username, it's still me, as you can tell by my avatar...)

OK, I'll just compile a list of all A and S numbered motorways in AT, be they finished, u/c, planned or proposed and later make a conclusion.
However, the only motorway section that was opened in AT last year was A6 (22km). Only A5 (58km) and the S1 extension (23,5km) are u/c as we speak.

A1 Westautobahn (E55/E60)


Length: 292km
Vienna-St.Pölten-Linz-Salzburg-German A8
Provinces: Vienna, Lower Austria, Upper Austria, Salzburg

built: 1940s-1970s
Status: finished

I like this one:

White and black: in use
Red: planned or u/c:



At the moment, we have 1,696 km of motorways (Autobahnen - A) and 428 km of Schnellstraßen, out of which 260 km are up to Autobahn-standard.

92 km of A and 296 km of S are either planned or u/c by January 2008.

Will there be connection between the A10 and A12 Autobahn or the mountainous
terrain makes it impossible to build?

I suspect because of Schengen,there is no need for that...there is a connection through Germany I suppose.

You're both right.

Austria's highest mountains can be found in this area, the Hohe Tauern. Big parts of the area are protected and some areas are a National Park. It'd be hard to build anything at all there, let alone a motorway. Also, traffic volume doesn't justify wider roads. The B-street network does its job quite well.
