@Verreme: Does this mean that they got rid of the 80 limits on motorways through and around Barcelona?

Does it mean that A1 has 3+3 lanes all the way from St. Pölten to Linz?

Only eastbound. There is still a 2 lane section for about 10 kilometers around Pochlarn.

They removed them in 2011. Some of them have now variable speed limits that are set to 80 on days with heavy pollution, but I don't remember this happening anytime this year. Rondes keep being 80 km/h (they always were), but most of the network is back to pre-2008 speed limits (120 or 100).

There is no A10 anywhere near Linz. Trust the Austrians to mess a sign up and put it in place anyway...

Well, maybe S10 will be continued one day (eastern Linz bypass). Is there any news about it?

that is very longtherm, eastern linz bypass after 2025

a lot of information in german:
http://www.land-oberoesterreich.gv.a...6_DEU_HTML.htm

(only to find possible routes and stop buildings there which block the "last" options at the moment)



now there are 4 variants left officially (red ones), the rightest possibilty is not realistic, geological difficult and not really cheaper to the longer tunnel solution

Are both eastern routes not realistic?

How necessary is a third bypass of Linz? A26-A7-S10?

Well, the A7 is an urban motorway. Very crowded (I couldn't find AADT). The predicted AADT 2030 of the future A26 is 62,000 vehicles/day. Works should begin in 2015 but it's only 4.7km (650 million €). A26 project page.

I think, an eastern bypass is necessary, especially if S10/D3 are completed one day.

what is the progress of Götschka tunnel, is it going to be opened by the end of the next year? it might be one of steeper known tunnels (160 m on 4,5 km).

when they connect the northern portal of Neumarkt tunnel with newly existing S10, it will be really nice piece of motorway

An update on the Austrian-Swiss-Autobahn link (formerly known as S18). So two options are left on the table:

* Bypass Lustenau East (CP): This one would use the existing L204, 2+2 lane, between Dornbirn and the entry of Lustenau, which would become Autobahn. Just before Lustenau a new bypass road would branch off to the North, along the East of Lustenau. Further north a new interchange would serve the northern part of Lustenau. It would then follow the borders of the settlement, cross the Rhine and then connect to the existing St. Margrethen (CH) interchange.

There is no up to date map of this proposal available. It is also the less likely one of the two, as it will affect a much larger part of the Lustenau population (it is quite close to the built up area and many people own fields in the East of the town that would have to be expropriated from them). Estimates are around € 615 million in a 2+2 configuration.

Here's an info graphic from 2009:

One big problem here: If L204 were to be turned into an Autobahn, L41 and L42 - which according to the original CP variant proposal would be closed, would have to stay open, so people without a vignette could travel between Lustenau and Dornbirn.

* Route Z: This completely new Autobahn would branch off the existing Dornbirn Nord interchange, lead almost completely straight eastwards to Lustenau, were it would connect to the Swiss network in an S-loop, similar to the CP proposal. The big question about the Z proposal - which is favorite by most (even those who are against a street, would prefer this one) is the implementation. There are basically two options: a) part trench/part cut and cover (between 527m for 1+1 and 607m for 2+2) b) sub-surface mining (800m or 900m).

here's the latest plan:
[IMG]http://oi58.************/oarh3c.jpg[/IMG]

The municipality of Fußach, which will be affected by the motorway bridge over the Rhine lobbies for a tunnel instead of a bridge. Though this is unlikely to ever happen, as it would massively increase the costs and there is no realistic proposal on how to connect this tunnel to the Swiss Autobahn.

Isn't the quickest link at Hohenems-Diepoldsau? I always use that going in and out of Swiss because it only takes 5 minutes from motorway to motorway. (unless the Swiss guards are in a bad mood, they're still out there...)
