Thanks for the answers. However, I still don't get the time schedule..

- Why they need 4 years for a 3km tunnel? In 4 years, they managed to build the second tube at Bosruck and they plan to have the same for Gleinalm, which is more than 8km in length.. Or is there any special difficulty with this tunnel? If not, then setting 4 years construction time seems to be a delay on purpose, because they don't have the funds anyhow ATM...

Further, also synchronising opening with the eastern lot isn't a legitimate reason for an opening date of 2021:
- The eastern lot has no special difficulty (no tunnels at least), thus it could easily be done in 2 years once you have the permits...
- The maps at the Asfinag website and also the Asfinag press release from May 21st mention that the western lot will have a provisional connection to B65 east of Rudersdorf - thus I don't see the pre-condition that both lots can only be opened together, on the contrary, they do provision for opening the western lot alone..
(Sorry, can't post links, too few post count (<10))...

A4 Autobahn nearby Vienna Airport is currently expanded between Airport exit and Fischamend exit from 2+2 to 3+3 lanes. This is how it looks like now, during the works:


exact location

From left to right:
- traffic from Budapest to Vienna (on 2 narrow lanes)
- traffic from Vienna to Budapest (on 2 narrow lanes)
both of the above are currently going on the left carriageway which was already expanded to 3 full lanes + hard shoulder last year
- right carriageway, that is currently expanded with 1 more lane
- main road no. 9 (traffic in both directions, separate from the motorway)
- Vienna Airport perimeter road

If I recall correctly, there used to be some roof or some other bridge-like structure above the road and motorway. Do you know what was that and when and why did it disappear?

That was an extension of runway 16/34 in case a plane should overshoot it. No idea why it was removed though.

Probably it was just unnecessary maintenance cost.

The EIS is challenged but A26 construction is announced to begin in Summer 2015 anyway. Source (German).
The "final" EIS is completed now . It took 7 years. Construction is announced to begin in July 2015, see press release.

Any map?
Will it bypass the often congested urban section of A7?

In the Beginning they are just going to build the Bridge over the Danube.
After that comes the Tunnel and at last the Bridge over the rail lines will be replaced

it will be the same thing as A7, just on the west side of the city. so, one more slow city motorway, mostly underground, and with plenty of city exits.

I found a news article. It reports that there will only be an official groundbreaking ceremony and information on 5th July 2015. Preliminary works should begin in fall 2015, construction works of the Danube bridge will being in the first half of 2016.

A26: Linz-Danube-North – Linz-Danube-South 0.9km (2016 to 2018) – projectmap
A26: Linz-Danube-South – Linz-Waldegg-Street 3.2km (2018 to 2024) – projectmap
A26: Linz-Waldegg-Street – Linz-Union-Street 0.6km (2027 to 2029) – projectmap

In addition, an eastern bypass of Linz is planned to relieve A7.

How can happen that a short, basically just a feeder becomes A number and other routes are S roads? Especially with A7/S10 this is very funny...

In Germany, A numbered roads are funded by the federal budget. B numbered roads are funded the same way but inside of cities (> 30,000 inhabitants) they have to be paid by the municipality. That's why the B75 expressway in Bremen was rededicated to A270 (10km feeder, 2+2 w/o shoulders) and A281 (20km city Autobahn, 2+2 w/o shoulders) gets Autobahn status. The Free Hanseatic City of Bremen (Germanies smallest state) has no money for building and maintaining these roads. I don't know but it could be similar in Austria?

Road numbering doesn't make sense in many countries...

14 years for 4,7 km of motorway? Even with a bridge to build, it looks like a joke.

I guess, 527 mio EUR is big money even for Austria, and they build it step by step, so they dont have to provide the sources all at once. At least this could be a good reason why they intend to build it for 14 years.

They don't have as much money to build these motorways, so they cut the project up in several parts. You'll see this with conventionally funded projects in Germany as well.

German only, but a good exaplanation: from ASFINAG

Basically, there is no specific term for "Schnellstrasse" (S) in the law anymore, and most (especially new projects) S roads are at Autobahn Standard.

I guess naming most of the new ones "S" is a political reason, a Schnellstrasse sounds less intrusive than the Autobahn (everyone wants to be close to one, but also not disturbed by it :-))

Also, I'd guess that it has historical roots - the A26 is a relatively old project, when an "A" was maybe still considered a good thing..?

Well, the construction times for the individual sections are quite ok, especially the one for the bridge is quite fast.

But as others said, the issue is financing; around 2009-2010, the project was threatened to be completely cancelled, or built as a Landeststrasse only, to save costs.

The compromise was then to build it as A, but to stretch the construction in several phases for funding reasons.
See e.g. (in German only) http://ooev1.orf.at/stories/492043
