Thanks for the answers!

To Bratislava I would go via B9/61 and avoid the tolled parts of D2 so no sticker needed.
I also was already in Hainburg and Devin, great stops along the Danube

I drove the Phyrnautobahn 2 times already, in both directions.

Also the S6+S35 from Vienna to Graz in December 2012, it was very scenic, returned the same day at night on A2.
I posted them also in this thread then:

Certainly the biggest problem you will have will be at the HU-RO border, already for 1st December and days around, it was a big mess with hours of waiting at border with poorly organised customs (also an interesting thing to do is probably to go through the old border control outside the highway where now there is only few cars that are crossing (I saved 1-2 hours of waiting by doing this on 1st december) or to cross it by night...

(Sorry for this small off-topic )

The section should be opened on 20th December 2015, see news article.
Also Asfinag states now "end of december" ("Die Gesamtverkehrsfreigabe der S 10 wird Ende Dezember 2015 erfolgen"), at the project page.
The symbolic opening ceremony will be next Saturday, December 12th. Source.
The section will be opened on 21st December at the earliest because a short stretch near Unterweitersdorf must be asphalted. Source.

The schedule can be seen at http://www.asfinag.at/unterwegs/baup...u%C3%9Fenbrunn

It is planned to do the northern part starting 2017, with ~2-3 years construction, and the southern part, which is mostly the tunnel, starting 2018 and finishing it 2025.

The project has the budget assigned, and has passed the environmental impact assessment (Umweltverträglichkeitsprüfung), even though there have been objections to it, and it might take up to a year to get the final approval.

On the other hand, there is a bit of political fight over the project. The green party forms since October a coalition with the socialists (for the second term running, the first coalition startetd in 2011). And the greens want to replace the tunnel, which will go under the national park & wetland "Lobau", with some other solution. Their proposal is to extend the A22 motorway from the interchange with A23 @ Kaisermühlen, and then build a bridge to the A2 motorway, the route of which you can see here in green:



This obviously is not an equivalent to the current project shown below, because it doesn't provide a bypass for Vienna, it just takes traffic off the A23 crossing over the Danube, which is the most busy section.



The bigger party in the city coalition (socialists), plus the two biggest opposition parties, support the project, as does the federal government and the motorway operation agency ASFINAG...
In the coalition agreement, the socialists and greens avoided a direct mentioning of the tunnel, and just agreed on providing a "new danube crossing", motorway standard. The greens see their proposal fulfil this requirement...
So, we'll see what happens..

If the green party gets it their way, it basically means going back to the drawing board (even though pre-studies exist), and that would mean many years delaying, plus a solution for a slightly different problem...



You can read up more in "Vienna" thread (in German) starting at http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...669645&page=21, there are more maps of different routes that were investigated in the last ~20 years

S16 Arlberg Schnellstraße

A € 61.3 million contract has been awarded to construct the second tube of the Perjen Tunnel at Landeck. It will open to traffic in late 2018, after which the existing tube will be renovated. Full 2x2 capacity will be available by late 2019.

Of all the possible ways to try to protect the environment, of course the Green Party would find the most stupid way possible. The tunnel would be substantially better for the environment than the Green Party proposal.

First picture is a thypical 3x2 motorway in Italy: rightmost lane = trucks-only lane (even in weekends when there aren't any).

The contract for the final lot of A5 Schrick-Poysbrunn section was awarded. The 25km section will be opened in late 2017. See press release.

1,5 years for construction is a nice tempo, I'm glad we're finally done with motorway construction times of 3-4 years.

The works for the first lot began one year ago. That means, 2.5 years. Note: "Lot" is not "Section (to be opened)".

The A5 terrain is quite easy. A26 construction in Linz will take 14 years (4.7km in 3 sections). S10 north of Freistadt will estimately take 4 years (8.5km). 15km S7 6-7 years.

Well the actual works on the motorway are indeed going to be approximately two "construction period seasons" (2016/2017), as the work done last year was mostly to build a replacement for the existing national road, which in turn will be used in parts as one carriageway of the motorway.

A26 has a total of 14 years, yes, but just putting it like this is confusing - the long time is because it is built in stages, each of which is usable by itself; the longest construction period of one lot is 6 years - that will be a tunnel in the built-up area, so that is not a too long time frame either.

With adequate funding, almost any motorway could be constructed in 2-3 years, unless it features long tunnels.

The construction of the famous Viaduc de Millau in France took only 3 years despite the challenges to construct such a large and long bridge.

I was just about to ask why there is so little progress near Wilfersdorf-Nord and no progress near Poysbrunn if the construction started almost a year ago. Now I know

Quote:
Projekt A 5 Nord/Weinviertel Autobahn zwischen Schrick und Poysbrunn wird von der Europäischen Union Connecting Europe kofinanziert. „Dass wir als ASFINAG diese Förderung erhalten haben zeigt ganz klar, dass auch für Brüssel die A 5 als prioritäres Projekt gilt"
Too bad that nothing is going on with Czech D52.
