It is awe inspiring to see the erection of something so large and so hard, soon to be throbbing with traffic discharging at one end.

I admire the Austrians for their continuous construction programme of second tubes for old single-tube tunnels.

We all know that the safest tunnels are the ones with two tubes and from what I remember there were many such additional tubes completed in the last years in Austria.

I will try to make a list.

Addition of second tubes and the year of their completition:

Karawankentunnel (A11): 2019 (planned)
Gleinalmtunnel (A9): 2017 (planned)
Bosrucktunnel (A9): 2013
Pfändertunnel (A14): 2013
Tauerntunnel (A10): 2010
Lainbergtunnel (A9): 2008
Katschbergtunnel (A10): 2008
Herzogbergtunnel (A2): 2005
Gräberntunnel (A2): 2003
Ambergtunnel (A14): 2003

Hello! Do you guys have any idea what happened with the U/C projects in Austria after Alpine went bankrupt? Alpine had some motorway works in Romania too which have been stopped already for a few months and it's interesting to see what the Austrian Gov did as a solution to continue the works previously under Alpine's task.

What about the Tunnelkette (tunnel chain) just north of the Bosruck tunnel?

Well those projects, where Alpine is the only contractor have to be tendered again (by law just as in Romania). Bigger projects with Alpine as a working group member are not really affected as the other contractors are held responsible for Alpine.

Perhaps going straight ahead won't take you to Wien?

Going straight ahead, (oops! I didn't mean to be gay bashing.) Going gayly onward, one comes to the end of the A6 and can either turn left (toward Budapest) or right (toward Vienna) onto the A4.

That's quite an embarrassing question for someone living in Austria and driving across Europe on a regular basis.

This can't be an Autobahn though.

Edit: It is no Autobahn. All Autobahns in Austria are stated in "Verzeichnis 1" of the Bundesstraßengesetz:

Probably one of the many Google mistakes, check if they'll fix it in the next days.
In this place they made two mistakes: SR56 instead of SS676 and Località Produttiva (bad translation of industrial area) signed like a toponym.

Are they gonna changing the classification of expressways (schnellstrassen)? They usually use the S-prefix.
