Why is height control set at only 4,0 m? Then it means that trucks are not allowed to go over S1? (Actually I didn't saw single one on those pictures)

A lonely bridge with no on/off ramps? Probably future exit, but still somehow strange.

2007. Work hasn't been finished yet, I believe.

No idea. Actually the S1 was built in order to take truck traffic away from A23...

Quote:

That's only because it was Sunday. On weekdays the right lane is really very much occupied by trucks.

Could be the future A24/S1 interchange. (See the above map.)

Copied here from my S1 thread:
Quote:
This might be the beginning of an "Austrian Motorways" thread. Though it might just as well not be.

S1 (Außenringschnellstraße)

The S1 is Austria's latest motorway. It was opened in April 2006 and has largely managed to attract a lot of transit traffic that earlier had to take the A23, straight through the city. It will be extended to total length of ultimately 57 km around the East/South-East of Vienna.




Length: 16.2 km
Provinces:
Lower Austria
Vienna


A journey East-West (Schwechat-Vösendorf)

Since VIE airport is located in Schwechat, this motorway has become my best option to get there from where I live.

Still on A4, coming from SE, between the airport and Vienna:


Leaving A4 (Ostautobahn, Vienna-Hungarian border) at Schwechat interchange:


Accelerating and passing below A4:


The first major road signs, showing principal cities in Austria (Linz and St.Pölten via S1-A21-A1, Eisenstadt via S1-A2-A3, Graz via S1-A2), the country indications for SLO, D and I as well as the next exit (Mannswörth-OMV) and the next one (Schwechat-Ost):


Flexible speed limiting (80??? C'mon...)


Schwechat Süd exit, interesting for plane spotters:


Entering the tunnel below the town of Rannersdorf (1880m long):


Inside the tunnel:


Daylight again:


Once more, the next exit and the one after are indicated:


Shortly before the exit, additional communities served by this exit are shown as well:


Changing lanes is restricted before tunnels:


Pretty strange that nothing tells you that Altmannsdorf is actually Vienna-West and Favoriten is actually Vienna-South. Not good for strangers...


Announcing Vösendorf interchange:


Distances to major (and minor) destinations, however Vienna ("Wien") isn't mentioned with a single word. Who outside Vienna knows where Favoriten or Altmannsdorf are?


Entering Vösendorf tunnel.


For A2 towards Vienna/A23 (Südosttangente/Altmannsdf/Favoriten) you have to leave the motorway inside of the tunnel and it's pretty hard to see the signs. The only thing that actually tells you where to go if you need to get into the city center is the white dot on the ground:


The left (!!!) lane takes you to the A2 (Südautobahn, southbound, I/SLO), the two others simply continue as the A21 (Außenringautobahn) which later merges with A1 (Westautobahn) that leaves Vienna in the central West and continues to the German border near Salzburg and on towards Munich:


A view facing North, the A2/Südautobahn that leads towards the A23 and the Wienerberg Towers in the background:


Please comment!
If no one minds, I'll kidnap this thread for future postings.

and can we please not use ugly googleearth renderings, i hate that program, the sattelite pictures don´t look real at all, they don´t have shadows, there isn´t a sun shading function etc, Nasa worldwind with a high resoluted layer is WAY better.

I agree but it's just your wording that implies a little arrogance.

I love motorways on mountains, especially snowy ones.
I like the electronic signage
