Second tube of "Katschbergtunnel"

On April 4th the second tube of Katschbergtunnel (length ~5400 m) on the A10 "Tauern"-motorway will be opened.
Unfortunately it will last until 2009 until traffic goes through both tubes because the old one has to be reconstructed.

Here are some pictures of the new tube (source:http://www.salzburg.com/sn/nwas/PictureGallery_scom3/PHP-Files/Gallery.php?PicNr=0&ref=vrui~lfsw$7e30ipo-8w9f9)

[IMG]http://www.salzburg.com/sn/nwas/PictureGallery_scom3/PHP-Files/ShowImage.php?Ref=DBild/zy_fbqsjc*1z40s75acuad6[/IMG]



When the works are finished in the end of 2009 there is only one single-tube-tunnel left, 6400m long "Tauerntunnel" of which the second tube should be finished in 2010 and the reconstruction of its second tube in 2011, so in that year the whole A10 should be s2x2s

Yes, the construction of the secont Tauerntunnel-tube started in 2006, it lasts so long because of the different geology there.

The second tube of Bosrucktunnel is planned to be opened in 2014 but they're only building it because they have problems with water in the old tube AFAIK
For the Gleinalmtunnel there is nothing planned yet AFAIK but that's not a big Problem because there is not much traffic and when S35 expressway (with almost-motorway-characteristics) is opened in 2010 and even now you can bypass it, the detour is only ~20 kms longer and you're nearly as fast as via Gleinalm AND you save €7,50 tolls.
The really bad thing about the A9 in Austria is that the second tubes of the tunnels near Klaus are planned to be in operation in 2019

They once promised to begin the construction when the firs carriageway was ready but then they found out that they don't have the money...

What is this viaduct over the highway? Is it a kind of runway's emergency extention? Or what?
From the ground it makes a breathtaking impresion as being around 20 m high

It is located on A4 higway by Schwechat Airport:

You forgot to mention the karavenkentunnel, because it has also only one tube and if another tube wil be build is dubious.

Karawankentunnel is not at Tauernautobahn (A10), it is on A11

Unfortunately you're right. And the last thing I've heard is that they'll only build a safety-tunnel instead of a second tube and that until 2019

On the other hand the Karawankentunnel/Predor Karavanke is not so important because traffic jams there are not very often and if there are it's mostly because of the toll station.

No, jams were mostly because of former border crossing. There were no jams in this year yet (border crossing doesn't exist anymore, but toll station does).

There was only 17% increase in traffic from 2001-2006, figure from 2006 shows traffic quantity only 6300 AADT. By that growth traffic would reach between 9.000 and 10.000 AADT by year 2019. Pretty low number. It is quite interesting, that more traffic goes off the motorway at last exit than it continues towards Austria.

On the other hand, Šentilj/Spielfeld border crossing experiences almost 22% traffic growth between 2001-2006 and could reach about 18.000 AADT in 2019. It is also a cheaper way to travel between Germany and Croatia in terms of tolls.

I think, that München-Ljubljana-Zagreb transit route looses leading transit importance, so tunnel Karavanke could really see only service tube.

And that´s really strange, where does the traffic to the east go, it used to be the main transport route to the east. But many people might also be affraid of travelling through Serbia know since all countries accepted the independence of Kosovo, some Bulgairans for example are affraid of travelling through Serbia.

Even not in the summer months? The Karawankentunnel is the main throughfare for holiday-goers from western Europe to Istria, the main tourist destination on the Balkans. The Austrian A10 from Salzburg to Villach has huge traffic jams at the tunnels during the summer months.

Do you know the meaning of "this year" phrase?

@radi:
>>> And that´s really strange, where does the traffic to the east go, it used to be the main transport route to the east.

Go in the middle of the day and count vehicles through Karav(w)anke(n). Pretty empty even for a national road. In summer many go through tunnel, but a lot of traffic diverges towards Italy. Queues were mostly induced because of border crossing. This Easter, for example, there were no considerable queues, in contrary to last Easter. At AT-SLO border, of course.

Massive pile-up with up to 100 vehicles involved today in dense fog on A1:

The accident happened between Seewalchen and St.Georgen in Upper Austria. Many injured, none killed.

What's more strange is people going from Salzburg to Zagreb over Graz/Maribor instead of Villach/Ljubljana.
