It was definitely up for sale recently as well, and what makes it even stranger is that there doesn't seem to be any sign whatsoever of life there. I stayed with someone living near there, and they said that it didn't seem like the house was ever actually used.

Chris, the Semmering pass looks like a good idea, thank you!

i am not sure how reliable that info is neither. but i remember that almost each tourist guide on trips at that area called our attention on that fact. however, it might be only a tourist hoax. also, somebody has put a photo of that house on Panoramio and named it Wurz (Alexander?) house, so maybe it has changed the owner. light googling doesn't give some information, it should be deeper.

http://www.kleinezeitung.at/steierma...zu-haben.story

The whole story is just weirder and weirder - this article claims that the house is only partially used, and surely someone that owned a couple of shoe shops in small Styrian towns wouldn't be able to afford to build such a thing?

All very weird...

Some citizens' initiatives complaint about a water right order and a nature conservancy order for the A5. The tender procedure is completed but the contracts will not be in force until the complaints are dismissed. The ASFINAG still wants to start construction in 2014 but delays are most likely. Total costs: 320 million €.

They've capitulated. ASFINAG: The tender procedure will start soon (maybe even in August).

I guess the works on the A5 Schrick - Poysbrunn section could begun in early 2015.

Yes, "we capitulate because of the pressure and personal (verbal) attacks". "Defamation and threat of violence".

A4 will be widened to 2x3 all the way to Neusiedl/See in the upcoming years. If I remember correctly deadline is 2019, but i am not sure.

A4 until Fishamend will be widened to 3+3 lanes until autumn 2015 (that's what the signs in the area say). The long-term plan is to make it 3+3 all the way to Parndorf.

What it's missing from the network and also from the plans is a direct connection between Eisenstadt and Parndorf. That one-lane road is quite crowded.

Specifically to the A6? Or a few kilometers beyond?

I suppose by 2040, it will be a minimum of 2x3 all the way between Vienna and Budapest.

Here is a map about the scheduled constructions. A4 will be a shitty place to drive in this decade

Is that stretch in concrete? It may explain why it takes up to 3 years to renovate it.

Entire A4 from Airport to the Hungarian border is with asphalt. Only the stretch from the Airport to Vienna is in concrete, but that part is already 3+3 until S1.

mmmm. Up to 3 years for a 'generalsanierung' is quite long. Perhaps the foundation is the motorway is in concrete. Some motorways have a concrete foundation and asphalt top layer. Replacing concrete costs much more time and money than asphalt.

In the Netherlands they replaced a concrete motorway with asphalt (10 km) in under 1 year.

Operation UK-F-I-AUSTRIA-D-L-B-F-UK

Austria - Fernpass route





Getting really tired now. See how I looked in the Italy thread and how I look now. Just driven UK - Mont Blanc - Turin and Austria in one go, and still want to make it to Heilbronn before I can shut my eyes.






Also see France and Italy. Will post Germany, Luxembourg and Belgium later.

And A4 has quite a bad surface quality. If you drive H -> A, after the border you may have the feeling Welcome to Africa. Which is awful because actually in Austria almost everything but motorways are better than in Hungary :-)
