At least...smaller progress on the B50 between Eisenstadt (S31) and Parndorf (A4) is going to be achieved. The bypass of Schützen will be opened in 2015......

Don't know if it was posted here before.

Will the S10 Unterweitersbach (A7) - Freistadt North, currently U/C, get autobahn status (speed limit 130)? Is the section Freistadt North - Czech border in planning stage?

Yes, see project page.

The Freistadt bypass will be opened in Mid of November 2014.

I've no idea about the classification but I remember that the speed limit will be lower than 130.

I assume it will be classified as a motorway, but given that 10 km of the 22 km are in tunnels, and the longest stretch outside a tunnel is only about 2.5 km long (between Ganglsiedlung UFT and Walchshof UFT), I would think that the whole stretch will be limited to 100 km/h (100-130-100 on a 2.5 km stretch does not make any sense).

Amen to that. There should be a couple of renumberings in Austria IMHO anyway:

S1 -> A21
S2 -> A23
S5/S31 -> A22
A11 -> A10
A9 -> A8 or A8 South -> A9 and A25 -> A8
S10 -> A7

Many Austrian motorways (also A-numbered) have speed limits lower than 130 because of tunnels and\or curves. It doesn't mean that they aren't motorways though, 130 is only the max s.l. allowed on motorways, not the only one possible.

Strange coincidence, Austrian A2 begins at A23 in Austria end ends at A23 in Italy.

You have S16 in between, which is 2x1. As soon they widen it, I would rename it to A12 as well (which is not going to happen soon).

Yes, but whats the purpose of 2x2 S-roads in Austria? S5, S36 etc. are as good as any A-road. Speed limit is 130 km/h too.

And whilst the A23 in Italy is among the greatest motorways, A23 at the other end is among the worst.

Also in Germany many "Gelbe Autobahnnen" (B-roads with motorway standards) have 130 speed limit or no speed limit at all! Back to Austria, A9 has still some single-tube tunnels left, that won't be doubled before 2019 and A10 had two single-tube tunnels until few years ago. Still, they have\had A-numbers.

Originally, the A network supposed to cover the main routes through Austria while the S roads were meant for the finer distribution in secondary areas. All S roads were originally meant to be 2+2 but had lower requirements for curve radii, junctions, lane width, etc. Nowadays, most new stretches get an S number because
a) there are no A numbers left which would fit geographically to the location and
b) they hope some NIMBYs will be fooled as it is only an expressway, not a motorway...
