The section in between will be "adapted" (I guess that means, it will be rededicated to S36 only!?).

Most of the section between the two tunnels is already dual carriageway with two lanes each, see e.g. http://binged.it/1KYgcH4; I think the "adaption" might include upgrading those by an emergency lane, potentially also the lanes are currently too narrow.
Other than that, yes, I think once the two tunnels are done, it is likely to become a restricted access road for these 7 km.

A9 Bosrucktunnel

According to the project page, both tubes should get into service on 17th October 2015.
The project page is not updated but there's an ASFINAG press release about a safety exercise (on 10th October) which reports that both tubes will be in service from 19th October 2015.

I checked whether I could find other news entries regarding this, only thing that is recent is a press release from one of the political parties, they mention that 17th of October 10:00 is the official opening with the minister attending, see http://www.ots.at/presseaussendung/O...8-oktober-2015

So maybe they have just the ceremony on 17th, and indeed cars can only go from 19th on. We'll see very soon :-)

AFAIR the adaption will consist of installing emergency bays (no emergency lanes), installing the emergency call system and renewing the guiderails/concrete dividers. And of course, installing the truck toll collection units .

Regarding the Bosrucktunnel on Austrian A9 motorway:

Kleine Zeitung newspaper of October 11, 2015 mentioned the following information in their article on pages 18-19:

opening ceremony: Saturday, Oct. 17
open for traffic: Monday, Oct. 19
Section Control will be removed on Friday, Oct. 23

Total cost of the project was 280 million euros, 200 million of that amount for the new tunnel

Is there a reason why the Bosruck Tunnel twinning was relatively expensive compared to Tunnel chain Klaus and Gleinalm Tunnel?

* Bosruck: 5.5 km € 280 million
* Klaus: 8.0 km € 180 million (not all of the length is tunnel)
* Gleinalm: 8.3 km € 240 million

-> Klaus only build the 2nd one, no costs for number one because it is only 10 years old

-> Bosruck, you forget on both sides are bridges direkt following which must be constructed, also difficult geology in the Bosruck-Massive this was the major reason for twining because the old one have to be renovated urgently

-> Bosruck is similar to Katschberg and Tauern from Tunnel length, renovating there number one needs one year, renovating the bosruck needed two years (geological problems)

S36 extension

The construcion of the second section "Unterflurtrasse Unzmarkt" was planned to be started in spring 2016 and to be opened in 2019 (the project page indicated "summer 2018" in late 2013 though) but there's a problem with expropriation now and works cannot be started in spring 2016 (source).

S36: north of Unzmarkt – south of Unzmarkt ~2.5km (2016 to 2019) – projectmap
A court decision says that the expropriation of 3 properties is not legal because of a formal error. ASFINAG confirms that there's a delay of minimum 12 months - the section will be opened in 2020 at the earliest. See news article.

S10 Unterweitersdorf - Freistadt

Google has updated its imagery of the area where S10 runs through. It's interesting to see how much of S10 runs in tunnels. These are some highlights which run from south to north.

1. Tunnel Götschka (4425 m) the southern portal at Unterweitersdorf.


2. Tunnel Götschka, northern portal


3. Tunnel Neumarkt (1975 m), southern portal


4. Northern portal. The tunnel is extended to reduce impact.


5. The Kefermarkt interchange


6. A mini stack interchange at Freistadt-Süd


7. Freistadt-Nord

Yes, there will be three lanes, because the tunnel is located in an incline. The southern portal is at approximately 380 m and the northern portal at 540 m. So there will be 3 lanes northbound due to slow trucks.

Asfinag (and media) report that the bypass for Drasenhofen, the first stage for extending the A5 north of Poysbrunn to the Czech border, has passed the environmental impact assessment ("Umweltverträglichkeitsprüfung"):

http://www.asfinag.at/newsroom/press...prufung-fertig
http://www.noen.at/nachrichten/lokal...erie/125516/15
(both in German language only)

This will be a half-profile for about 5km out of the total 9km of this segment, including a grade-separated interchange "Drasenhofen West", with a potential future upgrade to full profile.
Expected start for works is in 2017, and the date for completion is 2018 - one year after the Schrick-Poysbrunn segment of A5 (which will be full profile)

Also Asfinag states now "end of december" ("Die Gesamtverkehrsfreigabe der S 10 wird Ende Dezember 2015 erfolgen"), at the project page.

The Czech R52 extension is not even appearing on the list of future projects with ŘSD, so constructing the A5 extension partially with one carriageway seems like a sound decision. Czech motorway building processes are completely messed-up, nearly all plans are significantly delayed or postponed indefinitely. They won't finish their planned network within 50 years at this pace.

Austria and the Czech Republic did sign a treaty in early 2009 to construct this international motorway link, but not much progress seems to have been made over the 7 years since that event.

Given that the R52 will only exist for a further 36 days...

Though I'm sure you tried looking for D52 projects as well.

I'm hoping that the major improvements now under construction on the AT side will help spur some construction on the CZ side. I agree that the single carriageway bypass of Drasenhofen was a sound decision.

Tomorrow, the new tunnel under St. Georgen ob Judenburg on the S36 motorway will be opened for the public (the official ceremony & party was already on the weekend). A few images from Google, showing the almost finalised work:

Western portal:


Eastern portal:


Using the ~1.5 km tunnel & road between the motorway entrance & exits at each side of the town will require paying the motorway toll, i.e. having a valid Austrian "Vignette".

Why did they build this instead of simply getting around of the center of the city? It would have been so much simpler and cheaper?
