It was under renovation. Apparently they had to replace the bridge, even though this segment was only opened in 1975, so it is not that old.

Edit: it appears the Mur River Bridge (which also spans the railroad) is older than S35, Asfinag says it was built in 1953. It will be replaced entirely.

Good that no train hit it. In 2008 the same happened in Studenka, CZ in 2008, 8 people died. There is a small memorial devoted to them now. No one was sentenced yet.

If the train hit the viaduct, there might have been a bigger tragedy.

40 years ago: a viaduct of A10 collapsed during construction, killing 10 workers

The Reichsbrücke in Vienna collapsed in 1976.

In 1990 a bridge on A12 near Kufstein was damaged due to floods so severely that A12 was closed for two years.

The bridge of the 2nd carriageway is still closed. It might open by end of the week, see press release.

I'll be driving from Reintal (CZ/A border) to Innsbruck and as I've driven that route on the Autobahn many times I'm looking for some non-motorway alternatives. I'll probably take the B178 between Salzburg and Wörgl.
What about the B3 or B33 between Krems and Melk? I'm expecting some nice views on the Donau.
https://goo.gl/maps/qrvpX Is there anything else worth driving?

I drove from Pöchlarn to Krems on B3. It was on a sunny day, road was good, traffic was light... very nice to drive.

Just keep in mind that there are some roadworks in the Kleines Deutsche Eck around Bad Reichenhall, often leading to delays.

Are there any bigger town or anything that could cause problems?

I should drive from Belgrade to Montafon next month and I would like to cut the route between Spittal and Innsbruck using direction Spittal - Lienz - Bruneck - Brenner - Innsbruck especially because of a new speed limit on Tauern and Inntal Autobahn. I've never driven section from Spittal to Brenner Autobahn before and I would like to know how much time do I need (less or more) comparing with Salzburg direction bearing in mind new speed limit on A10 and A12. Spittal - Brenner Autobahn section is a pretty long (over 150 km) so I also interested to know is it difficult for driving, is there a lot of villages, cars, trucks, speed limits, radar controls... As I remember the Brenner Autobahn has the speed limit mostly 110 km/h. I have one more option which is longest but cheapest, Belgrade - Budapest - Wien - Salzburg - Munchen - Lindau - Bludenz - Montafon. Using this route I avoid very expensive Croatian and Slovenian tolls as well as a couple of tunnels in Austria and drive a pretty long section from Munchen to Lindau without speed limit.

Are there any new informations about the reasons of the collapse?

The 2nd bridge is in service since today. Experts still analyze the cause.

Seeing at the pictures I believe there was some serious design flaw with temporary construction supports for the new deck plate. To me they looked much too weak.

A11 Karawanken tunnel

The construction of the 2nd carriageway for A11 Karawanken tunnel b/n Austria and Slovenia will start in fall 2015. First, the area in front of the tunnel will be built, including a 350m viaduct. The construction of the 2nd tube will start in late 2017. Afterwards, the renovation of the existing tube will start in 2021. Austra invests about 165 million €. See press release.

I don't like that they will still use 1 Tunnel for both directions

How do you want the traffic to pass through that area if traffic doesn't go through one tunnel if the second one is not ready yet?

"Will still use" --> after completion of the 2nd tube and renovation of the 1st tube! There will be 2 completed tubes but only one tube will be used 1+1.
