Is the road better in Slovenia than in Austria?

Quality of the roads are similar.In Slovenia pavement is better because motorways are newer then in Austria.In my opinion motorways are better in Slovenia then in Austria,but Austria has a plenty of long tunnels and motorways are more stunning .

Before everyone's going insane let me clarify some things. Information as of November 16, 2014 (yesterday):

Border SLO/A - Gersdorf: currently u/c, this has been the worst part of the entire A9 with huge potholes, until November 30
Gersdorf - Lebring: in average condition, good enough to drive without having to worry about potholes
Lebring - Wildon: in almost perfect condition, new pavement from 2013
Wildon - Schwarzlsee: u/c until the end of the year. New pavement is already finished, expected to be finished by December 19. (Source: oeamtc.at)
Schwarzlsee - Graz Webling roundabout: good condition

I don't know why everyone's going off-topic because of this...

Umm, the border checkpoint was opened already in 1991, and the motorway to Maribor in 1996, so 18 years ago.

Well, A9 between Graz and Vogau-Strass was built between 1978 and 1982, so it's 14 years older .

My point is that in 18 years asphalt deteriorates a lot, if you don't repave it. (also, it's older than Autoputevi kao hobi )

I was saying about overall network.Some sections of A2 are 4 or 5 years old.

About half the network is pretty old now. Most of it is in a good condition because of regular maintenance, including sections from 1970s.

Quick question - does anyone know how the area looked like? I'm guessing the motorway was open to the first exit in Slovenia (...Yugoslavia? did it open before independence? I don't think it did...) - but would I be right in guessing that trucks had to use the old border crossing?

I don't know about trucks. That section was opened on 18.9.1991 and you drove this way (same way in the other direction, you crossed to the other side of the motorway at the end).

Speed limit lowered on Tyrol motorways

A permanent speed limit of 100 km/h will be introduced for cars travelling on large sections of Austria’s Inn Valley motorway (A12) and Brenner motorway (A13) on November 20th - in an effort to improve air quality.

My god, Kufstein - Zirl is around 90 kilometers of 100 km/h motorway...

Absolutely ridiculous. Cars are cleaner than ever.

I guess this will be the longest piece of a full profile motorway in Europe to be "downgraded" to 100 km/h...

A few years ago, there was some buzz about € 2000 fines for exceeding the speed limit in IG-L zones. It was argued that these fines were not for speeding, but for environmental offenses. Do they actually issue such high fines in IG-L zones, or is it only from a certain speed (like >30 km/h over the limit)?

It is a bit of a drag, that is true. But let's face it: Amsterdam to Dordrecht is also a pain in the ass with its 100 and even 80 in places...

€600 in IG-L zones I have been told, but I never got any. 110 kph is acceptable though, you won't get nothing.

I drove numerous times on A1 east of Linz, and I still haven't managed to understand why it's the IG-L turned on. Sometimes the motorway is so busy that you can't drive faster than 100-110 km/h, but IG-L is off (many cars = much pollution, but IG-L off). On one evening the motorway was absolutely empty, but IG-L was turned on. (no cars on the road, but IG-L said that polution levels are too high).

It's a complete nonsense.
