That one would proabably be way too South in order to light traffic on Bodenseestraße and the link at Lustenau (i.e. for Northbound traffic/traffic coming from Germany).

In Northern Lustenau/Southern Höchst are some pretty important industrial areas creating quite some commuter traffic. The Z proposal would also provide for those needs.

Fair enough. It would serve the traffic between Innsbruck and St Gallen/Zürich well though...

Even if the distance between the Austrian A14 and the Swiss A13 is very short, it's weird that two prosperous European countries don't have any motorway link between them. Traffic through Lustenau must be very bad currently, since it is a real bottleneck.

It is. There was already an approved project about 15 years ago, but the responsible officials did not perform the administrative acts according to valid law, so the approval was overruled by the constitutional court. Now EU regulations are applicable and the overground connection planned earlier is not possible any more (Natura 2000), thus the delay.

Don't forget that on most days of the year, the relation Munich <-> Zurich is by far the most important. That is also better served by a northerly connection.

From this weekend on A4 has 3 lanes from Fischamend towards Vienna. Until the end of 2015 the whole motorway will be widened to 2x3 lanes between Fischamend and S1 interchange.

Yesterday I had the opportunity to test that piece of new road. I am not sure, but I think the inner lanes are nowhere near 3,75 meters. Has somebody taken a better look on it yet?

I drove the A4 today between Fischamend and VIE airport. As of today, there are three nice newly paved lanes open in the direction toward Vienna. In the direction driving away from Vienna, there are two lanes open and (at least) repaving is required.

IIRC, standard cross section in Austria is 3.75/3.50/3.50 m for three lanes per direction.

Repaving and expansion to three lanes for the eastbound carriageway will happen April to November 2015. Repaving of the stretch Neusiedl -> border will start in 2015 and a three lane extension between Fischamend and Neusiedl in 2018. By 2020 Schwechat junction-Neusiedl should be six lanes and all of A4 should have had a total makeover.

Thanks for the information. I will drive on A4 direction Budapest on Friday, and will test the other side with 3 lanes on Sunday.

You're right about that.

A9 Tunnelkette Klaus

The boring of the 2nd tube of "Tunnelkette Klaus" was started today. The construction of some bridges had already begun in September 2013. The new tube will be completed by late 2017. The existing tube will be renewed in 2018. Both tubes will be in service in late 2018, see press release.

not correct (in details), there are 4 tunnels, short english description:

this 8kms are effective:
bridge - tunnel - bridge - tunnel - bridge - tunnel - bridge - tunnel - bridge

first the bridges have to be built to able to built the tunnels, the bridges are nearly finished and it is time for the tunnels

but at the moment are no new tunnels built, at the moment they start to wide the emergency tunnels of the 2 longer ones to a scale for traffic, next year in summer the start to dig the new tubes of the short 2 tunnels which have no emergency tubes

all just in time building, all is started to be finished when it is needed and the shorter complete new tunnels are finished faster than the widening of the long ones

A7 Linz

On October 16th, about two months ago now, Austria's first ramp meter or zuflussregelungsanlage in German has been put into operation. It is located on one of the entrance ramps of the Mühlkreis Autobahn (A7), more specifically just south of the city of Linz. Based on Asfinag's announcement - and as far as my German skills provide me to fully understand the text's details - the technical functioning of the system seems to be similar to the way they are being programmed in NL. That means the ramp meter will turn on when traffic flow exceeds a certain value, or when a (strongly) decreased speed is being measured. When the row of waiting vehicles gets too long and is starting to block other traffic, the ramp meter will automatically turn off again. The only difference seems to be absence of a red light camera, apparently Austrians do not need these things to comply with the law Is there any data regarding the improvement in traffic flow available yet? Or has that still to come?

Austrians normally don't run red lights, yes.

Is it possible to go from Salzburgo to Ljubljania in an autobahn?

A quick look on Google Maps answers your question; that is definitely possible. First you take the Tauern Autobahn (A10) to Villach, then you take the Karawanken Autobahn (A11) to the Austrian/Slovenian border and in the last place you take the Slovenian A2 towards Ljubljana.
