Never seen one (except vignette controls). But people (locals and most foreigners) are respecting speed limits, something you wont find on Vienna motorway network.

That was just for a short time and ended a few years ago. At night the speed limit for trucks on A10 is just 60 km/h, btw!! That's what I call really dangerous!

Why? It is still the same difference in speed limits to personal cars as in the day.

Yeah, but not everyone drives 130 km/h. Just the thought of someone driving 60 km/h on a motorway gives me the shivers.

No, at night only 110 km/h is allowed. And I think vast majority of drivers don't speed on A10 at least when I'm driving there.

(I'll post a photo of this sign, posted every 50 km or so, when I'll get to other computer - funny I have it already a year and a quarter)

I know, I said not everyone drives 130 km/h by day, so it's usually a smaller difference.

I don't se that as a danger. On normal roads in Austria 100 km/h is allowed, so being on a wide and straight motorway (which is virtually empty in the night) it is not very hard to see a lightened truck going 60 km/h and therefore even safer.

There are countless motorway ascents, where truck with trailers can go only 40 km/h, and cars are easily going 130 or more (Germany) and yet I don't see much danger here.

The 160 km/h Test was in 2006; 130km/h at night


I´ve to keep my eyes more open, but truck limit @ 40 or 60 km/h?

i know it exists but i´ve never seen it here

... btw: Driving 60km/h is surely no problem for the driver (-> Tempomat) and also not for other users driving at regular speed

110 at night is REALLY a falling-asleep-speedlimit. They have never heard of drivers fatigue?

it´s good for the police to see the young drivers on their way do disco <> home because - when drunken - they don´t keep the 110 - even not the 130, so it´s easy to select those people.

It´s dark - you don´t see them, but they see you
(specialy when in civil)


btw: 110 is from 22 - 05 o´clock

A10 has hard shoulders (and always had them), A11 doesn't (which I don't mind at all).

A10 Villach-Salzburg, Tauernautobahn

The last set of pictures already. Only the border will follow, and that's it!

Anyway, we passed here on a quiet tuesday, so no jams at all at the tunnels. When we entered the Tauerntunnel our direction was completely empty!

1.



2. Speed limit 100 km/h for a tunnel.



3. Salzburg 170 km.



4. These rusty shoulders again



5. Great!



6. Knoten Spittal-Millstätter See ahead.



7. For Lienz and Lendorf turn left...



8. ...and exit here



9. Ugly concrete and concrete middle barrier.



10. Noise barriers in the middle of the motorway



11.



12. Nothing but a caravan



13. The valley is narrowing down.



14. Some curve and a lorry. There weren't many of them on this motorway (tunnel restrictions).



15. Empty.



16. Wartezeit......heute nicht



17. Ski area Rennweg am Katschberg.



18. Entering Katschbergtunnel.



19. Exit St. Michael, AFAIK the only exit between the Katschberg and Tauerntunnel.



20. Empty



21. Just a caravan



22. Dirty windshield



That's it for part one! Part two is coming up

Part 2

23. At least a small part of this motorway is good



24. 2×3 uphill.



25. No stau today



26.



27. Just before entering the Tauerntunnel.



28. The road narrows down to 2×1.



29. Entering the Tauerntunnel. This is also the highest point in the Tauernautobahn (1340m).



30. After the tunnel; 4% downhill.



31.



32. Quite large roadworks near Flachauwinkel.



33. All traffic moved to one side.



34. After the roadworks.



35.



36. Beautiful mountain.



37. Entering a small tunnel.



38. Going downhill.



39.



40. Still going down.



41. A little bit more traffic.



42. Roadworks again. There was some congestion here (20 mins, not much).



43. Still 2 lanes each direction available.



44. Knoten Salzburg ahead.



45. End of the A10. We're following München here.



That's it. Hope you liked it

Nice. I thought the Tauern Autobahn was more spectacular in terms of scenery though.

Actually it also is, but you can't show it through a dirty windscreen.
