Well, there aren't many news regarding A5 itself, all is set to be opened December 2017. I haven't passed by in some months... but might go by relatively soon.

In the meantime, I found some pictures published by the consortium building the last lot ("Baulos 5" in the map below) from Walterskirchen including the Poysbrunn interchange (http://hochtief.at/projekte/a5-nordw...bschnitt-4-noe).

From mid-March 2017:











From mid-January 2017:








Shows really good progress on the structures in these two months, especially considering that this lot was the last one that started work.

There are also older pictures from 2016 showing earthworks etc. at that website (http://hochtief.at/projekte/a5-nordw...bschnitt-4-noe)

--

Related news, but no so positive, are from the Drasenhofen bypass, which is the last village before the border, and thus the final bottleneck, see the map:



This will be built as a single-carriageway, until demand increases. Due to this decision a few years back to not build it as motorway standard, they had to restart some of the approval procedures.
Initially, they wanted to open the bypass in 2018, now it is likely they could start construction end of this year (still some approvals to be confirmed in court), and finish in the second half of 2019.

B50

I got a inquiry, guys, whether there will be any continuation of bypasses on Bundesstrasse B50. Schutzen am Gebirge bypass has been opened lately, but I did not find any information about the continuation of bypasses construction along B 50.

I think even in 1973, in approved Bundesverkehrsplan the plan was even to have motorway, or expressway along Neusiedler See up to SVK border, Neusiedlerschnellstrasse? As of 2017 from these route there are just five village bypasses missing: Jois, Winden am See, Breitenbrunn, Purbach and Donnerskirchen. Other parts were covered by A6, A4, B50 and S31 up to A2.
I mean this route will even more facilitate the transport from SVK, or Poland to southern Austria, SLO, CRO, or Italy. Current route A6/A4/S1/A2 is not a bad option, but a little longer, than route along Neusielder See, which I sometimes use, when travelling to southern Austria, or Italy.

B50

Short answer ad B50: I don't think so in the near/medium future, I didn't hear anything, and the example of Schützen am Gebirge is rather a deterrent...

- Initial plans indeed were for a "Neusiedler See Autobahn", but they realised at some point that they don't want a transit corridor along there.
- Later it was planned to extend the S31 from Eisenstadt Ost to Schützen am Gebirge, likely as a 2+2 road.
- Instead around 2010, this was changed to just the bypass road, which opened 2014.
- But, there are/were some issues with this road. The state of Burgenland decided that now environmental impact assessment is needed for the bypass road; but they didn't inform land-owns on that decision, which therefore had no possibility to object against that. Subsequently, a number of land owners sued against expropriation. Their appeal was successful, so in 2016 the land was rightfully returned to them, and there were even fears that the road needs to be demolished.. (also, the permits required according to water law were revoked in court).

Just recently they got a settlement (for an undisclosed sum, though), and as a consequence of that agreement, likely the speed limit will change to 70.

(also in the south of S31, the extension was converted to a 1+1 bypass road, from Oberpullendorf to (close to the) border near Köszeg, see http://www.openstreetmap.org/relatio...7.4648/16.6484)

Some pictures from the construction along the S36 in and around Unzmarkt (Source: http://www.kleinezeitung.at/steierma...usbau-der-S-36).

The major piece of work is the tunnel unter the town of Unzmarkt, similar to the tunnel under St. Georgen (see this post for a video: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...postcount=4115), which was completed ~1.5 years ago, and relocation of the river "Mur" for ~500 meters.
Project details (in German) here: http://www.asfinag.at/unterwegs/baup...E_j7blkptlhsV5, for the route, see http://www.asfinag.at/documents/1018...6-b273e88e4d4b

Mostly politicians (and other important people) to be seen in the picture, but - asphalting works on A5 Nordautobahn Schrick-Poysbrunn are under way!

Pictures from laying concrete on the A5 Nordautobahn Schrick-Poysbrunn, specifically from the area around Walterskirchen (see http://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=13/48.6432/16.7128)











The machine produces a 13m wide band (so one dual-laned carriageway including shoulder) of 600m length per day. By mid-September, all works for the surface along the entire 34km section should be finished. Opening is scheduled for December 2nd.

See my post a bit above, nothing new on the status- construction to start this year in winter, opening 2019:

Still not having all the permits, though, some were appealed against, so that timeline still has some uncertainties ...

have still hope left that the drassenhofen bypass is NOT built in this stupid setting, what to i mean:

-> nobody needs the temporary Drassenhofen south roundabout
(local traffic can use the new exit Drassenhofen west instead with no disadvantages)
-> save the money on the temporary Drassenhofen north roundabout

-> use the saved money (and probably a little bit more) to build the future Drassenhofen north exit

-> benefits:
+ no traffic disrupting roundabouts
+ future Drassenhofen north already exists, save a lot of money at the full upgrade

That sounds like a very valid argument; not sure what is in the environmental impact assessment plans (I think they are only about the bypass, not about the future potential motorway duplication), so it might not be too easy to change the layout. In any case, maybe worth writing to ASFINAG?

Funnily, on http://www.asfinag.at/verkehrssicher...g-drasenhofen/, they talk about a grade-separated and no-traffic-lights bypass; maybe they consider roundabouts differently, or they talk up the project, or maybe maybe maybe they already plan it w/o roundabouts?

Are you talking about this statement:

Quote:
Durch den Bau der ampel- und kreuzungsfreien Umfahrung bei Drasenhofen
It just means "without traffic lights and junctions" (although kreuzungsfrei is usually translated "grade-separted")...

They probably didn't count the two roundabouts, because they're placed at the beginning and the end of the bypass, respectively. Between the roundabouts there is indeed no at-grade interchange planned, just a grade-separated interchange Drasenhofen west.

Random pictures through Austria. Heading South from CZ border to Wien and then Tarvisio (I).

1. I'll start with Latvi.., Drasenhofen village on the B7 after the Czech border. Incredible that there are still no bypass roads built during all these years on this important route. Can't imagine the daily life in these houses, as hundreds of trucks pass here almost every day.


2. Luckly, a few of these villages will be saved. This is before Poysdorf.


BTW, I did not capture the long ass stau after this curve before Poysdorf.

3. Bau!


4. Schneller!! The views here are quite scenic. Those fields look captivating.


5. Dusty.


6. Along the U/C A5.


7. On the motorway. This was the first time I saw this A5 segment, I have travelled here back in 2005, when there was just this 2-laned rural road all the way to Wien.


8. Neat.


9. Distant view.


10. Hallo Leben as in Hello Life. Informative sign reminding to wear seatbelt.


11. Wien skyline on the horizon.


12. View towards the A5 (Wien) from the overpass to Raststation (The roadside rest area).


13. Different day. I skipped several places due to bad weather. This is the A2 autobahn in Graz with roadworks. It's the first time I was heading in direction to Italy on this route, as I mentioned above, I have travelled here in 2005 as a passenger, and in 2014 as the driver.


14. View towards the A2 from a watch tower at one of the rest areas near Twimberg.


15. On the same bridge above.


16. Endless viaducts. Very scenic places.


17. Near Klagenfurt.


18. Autobahn along Wörthersee (lake), after Klagenfurt.


19. Beautiful clouds and the view itself.


20. Approaching this.. important.. junction (Knoten/Kreuz Villach, A2xA10).


21. We continue to ignore Slowenien, and head towards Italien.


22. 3 lanes out of nowhere..


23. Last moments in Austria near Arnoldstein..


24. ..and we're in Italy.

https://www.google.at/maps/@46.55725.../data=!5m1!1e4

reason there are mountains and if there is a short hard climb piece a lane more is quite useful, you shot your picture direct after the exit hermagor after the gailitz bridge driving south direction, more than 30m up follow direct after the picture

nice pics

I think so, yes

I see nothing wrong with that, don't think people will make an association that Salzburg is in Germany... And obviously, it is more important to announce Salzburg as the major town along the route than to write "Deutschland"..

Well, there is another sign to "Udine (I) / Villach", similarily there could be "München (D) / Salzburg"...
