No. An additional emergency tunnel (3rd tube) is not required if there are 2 tubes.

Yep, that's exactly what Verso and I say. We are not sure if this plan is still valid. I couldn't find any info about modified plans. So, is the interpretation of the latest news correct (2 tubes will be operated) or not (2nd tube will only be opened on peak days or if AADT will exceed 20,000 vehicles/day).

According to EU rules, 20,000 vehicles/day require operating 2 tubes. Due to the fact that there is no emergency tunnel, there were plans to build one but it's much cheaper to build a full tunnel instead of building an emergency tunnel and widen it after AADT would have exceeded 20,000 vehicles/day.

I'm sure that traffic density will increase in next 7 and more years so it is logical that both tubes will operate. Especially if Croatia joins Schengen area and Serbia joins EU.

A9 Gleinalm Tunnel

Breakthrough has been achieved at the second tube of the Gleinalm Tunnel (8.3 km). Construction began late 2013. The tunnel is planned to open in the summer of 2017. The old tube will be renovated afterwards.

S16 Arlberg Tunnel

The Arlberg Tunnel will be closed to all traffic, in both directions through much of 2015.

It is closed from 21 April to 14 November for renovations.

Ouch, it willd create a lot of traffic jams. That's the reason for why important tunnels should have two tubes.

S1/S8 east of Vienna

The EIS of the 19km S1 Vienna beltway seems to be completed (but one source says that additional approvals for nature protection and water rights will be completed by Mid 2016!?).
The first S1 section b/n Süßenbrunn and Groß Enzersdorf is announced to be built 2016-18 (map).
The second S1 section b/n Groß Enzersdorf and Schwechat (map) is announced to be built 2018-25 (map).
The latter contains the 9km Lobau tunnel which costs 1.4 billion €. The entire 19km S1 will cost 1.8 billion €. The EIS will most likely be challenged.

The EIS for the first section of the S8 Marchfeld expressway is announced to be completed by late 2015.
14km S8 b/n Süßenbrunn and Gänserndorf (map). Completion: 2017.
The 20km second S8 section b/n Gänserndorf and the border to Slovakia will be built later (map).

Nice - but notice that Pressesprecher has č in his surname, so it might be only a coincidence

Will it eventually reach the Czech D2 somewhere south of Brno?

No plans for motorway there, neither on the czech nor austrian side. Only bypass of Břeclav as 2x1 is being planned.

On the Czech side, the R52 will eventually be completed and the A5/R52 will someday connect Brno and Vienna via continuous expressway/motorway.

There's a new bypass u/c for the small town of Gmunden. It will link B120 with B144 on the eastern side of the town. The new bypass is between points A and B on this map. Many locals are currently using the small, narrow road as routed by Google Maps. The new, 2.5 km road with 1 lane each direction costs about 13 million Euro. Works have started in 2013 and should be ready in autumn this year. Project's webpage.



Some pictures from today:

A new roundabout built especially for the bypass, at the junction between B120 and L1306:


Try to pronounce the name of the town that's written on that sign (if you turn right).

A underpass. The new road goes above:



Picture from an overpass, facing to B144:



Same overpass, facing to B120:



Same place:



The end nearby B144. I couldn't take a better picture:



Bonus: B145 nearby Gmunden, just before junction with B120:


On the left it's the Traunstein (1691 m) and Traun lake.

Gschwandt is probably one of the longest monosyllabic names in existence.

Gschwandt is very simple. It's pronounced like it's written.

btw: Very simular to my favorite "German" (well, Swabian) word: "gschwind". It's weirdly used like "Mahlzeit"....

dashcams in Österreich

I'm considering a trip to Austria this summer. I like to film roads and produce them as timelapse videos.

Whether you can use a dashcam or not is not entirely clear.

The Österreichische Datenschutzbehörde says you cannot do any systematic video surveillance, including dashcams. (source)

However, motorway authority Asfinag says you are allowed to film from a car with a dashcam for personal reasons. If you publish the images, you would need to mask license plates and people. (source) Autorevue recently posted the same. (source)

IMHO, you will be perfectly fine as long as you mask the license plates and people when publishing the material. If you run into a police control, you'd say you are on vacation and you are filming for personal reasons.

What you are not allowed to do is to use the material to prosecute third party's illegal actions. This is exclusive to the Austrian police. You are allowed to prove your own innocence though.

But I think that you can by no means be in trouble for the filming itself.

Even better than in Germany, I'd say.

Looking forward to the videos, then!
