If you meant the other one, maybe Slovakia is not in the direction of that sign.

I don't think there's any bridge over March (Morava) on the Austrian-Slovak border; I think the northernmost road between the countries is the old road between Vienna and Bratislava (B9×61), so Slovakia is in direction of Budapest. I think even Bratislava could be on the sign, not just SK.

There is 20-25 km less distance (about 30%), if you take previous exit and go to Bratislava over bundesroads and Hainburg (according to Google maps).

If you mean B3, it's not previous exit, that exit is yet to come (after Hermann-Gebauer-Straße). Although, there doesn't seem to be an exit for it; perhaps it was sooner, but that means driving on city streets of Vienna to get to B3, which doesn't sound like a good idea. But if you mean B8 and B49, that doesn't sound like a good idea to me at all. Also, signs always keep you on motorways and expressways as much as they can, and even if the exit was already sooner, you still have to sign Slovakia over S2-A23-A4-A6.

I found exit for B3 - it's Hirschstetten, and it's definitely after this sign (after exit for Hermann-Gebauer-Straße; also after exit for Rautenweg, which is also on the sign).

Compare this
http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&sour...91953&t=h&z=11

to this
http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&sour...=UTF8&t=h&z=11

and this
http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&sour...=UTF8&t=h&z=11

Also future S2/S1 interchange will be built before above exit and traffic to SK here is almost certainly very minor.

I have just noticed that between Austria and Slovakia in 90km borders,there are only three crossing and all in Bratislava, North from Bratislava you can only swim if you want to get to Slovakia.

There are probably ferries. I'm looking at the border right now, from Bratislava up north. In Angern an der March is a ferry to Slovakia.

I'd choose motorways. If your average speed there is 125 km/h, you have to drive on average at least 100 km/h on ordinary roads, which is impossible (84.9 km ÷ 68.3 km = 1.24; 125 km/h ÷ 1.24 = 100.6 km/h).

Yes, one ferry in Angern and one more road crossing between Moravskı Svätı Ján and Hohenau (although only for vehicles under 3.5 tonnes).

North of Bratislava there's a ferry between Záhorská Ves and Angern: http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&hq=&...82193,16.83408 and little narrow bridge between Moravskı Svätı Ján and Hohenau an der March: http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&t=h&...5,0.01929&z=16.

There's planned expressway between Vienna and Slovak border north of Danube. I hope it won't take 20 years to built it as it was in case of A6.

If you're approaching Vienna from the North, as in that picture, the fastet route to Bratislava would be via the ferry in Angern. Even if you went south to Hainburg (B9), which I wouldn't do unless the crossing at Angern is closed because of high water levels (which happens), it would still be faster than the A23-A4-A6 combo - under normal conditions, of course.
So it makes sense that SK or Bratislava is missing from that sign.
But the signs look like sh... anyway.

Through Wien average 125? Maybe at 3 in the morning.

^ Average on S2+A23+A4+A6+D4+D2. Well, we still have Trieste signed on A1, even if you miss A3. Ok, it doesn't matter.
