Austria's version of "Operation Stack" on A10 north of the Tauern Tunnel. Southern Austria has seen excessive snowfall, where up to 2 meters of snow can accumulate between last night and Monday. Most truck traffic is now shut down in Carinthia.

An interesting sight, with nice weather conditions on the Northern side of the Alps. Here are a few pics taken yesterday, travelling between Knoten Pongau and Salzburg.

Probably to maintain access to exits and access for emergency vehicles in case of a traffic jam on the other lane.

Construction is planned to begin this year on the northern segment.

I'm skeptic about the tunnel segment, it's been continuously delayed since I began tracking the project 6 years ago.

Thank you! So for about 10 years it will be necessary to cross through Wien.
But a thing I didn't understand. When I travelled by day in A23/S2 there was lot of traffic so 80km\h speed limit was right. By night empty. Why not rise speed limit up to 110km\h between 22.00-05.00 (like outside Bratislava in D1)?

Maybe because of noise regulations?

Yes there are, but they are not 100% sound-proof. Plus the greens...

It's just the highest point of the A10, the highest point on Austrian motorways is at Brenner (1375m).

A1 West Autobahn

Construction begins next week to add a third lane along A1 between Ybbs and Pochlärn. The new lane will be available by November 2014. The widening is eastbound only, westbound already possesses 3 lanes.

With this new extra lane, will A1 have complete 3+3 profile between A21 (near Wien) and A9 (south of Wels)?

There is still a short section with 2x2 lanes between Pochlärn and Melk.

Hi, I am coming from Slovenia to Villach through Karawanken tunnel. Is it possible to take the first exit after the tunnel (Sankt jakob in Rosental) and then use local roads to avoid paying Austrian vignette or I must have a vignette even for that small section between the tunnel and the first exit?

^ No, you don't need a vignette until the first exit.
