I like 0-900 m
1km+

No 0.xx should be used.

If you use metres for exits (250 m, 500 m), it makes sense to use them also for 1000 m or 1500 m. However, once I saw 9000 m in Slovenia, which looked weird. I think it should be max. 5000 m.

At first glance from a distance I thought the sign said 2200 km

Combining meters and kilometers isn't the best idea.

Yesterday I drove on A7 / S10 / E55. On the entire route between Linz and Freistadt it's either an opened motorway/expressway, or a construction site. From what's I've seen from the main road (old road), the new expressway will be really nice to drive: hilly terrain, nice landscape and a lot of tunnels.

When is scheduled S10 to be completed until Freistadt?

One thing: just after the border, in Czech Republic, there are some hills and the road goes up and down with up to 12% steepness.

The bypass of Freistadt (S10) was opened in November. The remaining part of S10 to Freistadt is going to be opened within this year. The first tunnel tube in Neumarkt was opened in 2003.
Yes, the national road I/3 in CZ just after the border (bypass of Dolni Dvoriste) is very dangerous. In 2003 there was large coach accident, 20 people died.......

I think that was the scariest road in my life, our bus driver drove there like crazy back in 1996.

This summer I saw queues around 20 km long, in both directions on that road.

They should have written 2,2 km instead, or even have rounded it to 2 km.

Is really necessary to signpost an exit (or even a motorway-to-motorway interchange) 9 km before?

Some American toll roads systematically tell you on exit signs "Next Exit 15 Miles" or whatever. Presumably because the gaps between exits are fairly long.

I don't remember where I saw it, but I don't think it was a sign for an exit.

A bridge over Graz-Wien railway on S35 collapsed yesterday. Bridge was being reconstructed, there are no casualities but mainline railways will be closed for several weeks. Only few minutes before collapse a passenger train drove under that bridge. S35 is closed too.

Here is that bridge:

This is the fourth bridge failure this month in Europe;

* 2 February: Skjeggestad Bridge in Norway collapses after a slide. Was demolished with explosives yesterday.
* 10 February: bearing snapped off the Schierstein Bridge in Germany, the bridge deck dips by 30 cm and cracks. Bridge closed for circa 6 weeks.
* 14 February: The Łazienkowski Bridge in Poland catches fire, needs to be demolished.
* 21 February: The S35 Bridge in Austria collapses.

Really impressive!

It's good to know that nobody has been hurt...

Why they had to reconstuct that bridge? S35 was already completed.
