I think the motorway should be build there since it carries European Road Number (E5..).
I was driving there for couple of times and I remember this short stretch of S road, but in my memory it is 2+2.?

Anyway this short stretch was built before good connection trough Alps was made with A9.

So it has name A16? Any map?

I thought this would never be build since German A8 + A93 is a very good alternative (at least for north Austria) (+ there is no border).

There are other similar interrupted tunnels.

This one is for a railway in Italy: http://maps.google.ch/maps?f=q&sourc...04801&t=k&z=18 (Pontebbana, parallel to the A23)

On the SS 38 here there are three tunnels connected by snowsheds: http://maps.google.ch/maps?f=q&sourc...04801&t=h&z=18

They are built mainly to protect the road or railway from snow, but noise reduction is a nice side effect.

1 - another parallel traffic tunnel,
2 - a parallel service tunnel or
3 - escape shafts every 500 m or so.
For Arlberg tunnel they have chosen option number 3 and connected it with parallel railway tunnel. In first phase those escape shafts are spaced 1700 m, in final phase they will be 425 m spaced.

Karawanken tunnel will certainly get a new tube until 2019, but it is still not know (at least not in public), if they will choose option 1 or 2.

It was planned as S18 the Bodensee Schnellstraße, however EU commissions fought in court against the Austrian government because it was too close to a bird habitat.

The Austrian government now seems to be preparing another route further south. It's really a shame there isn't one yet, planning of S18 started 25 years ago.

Hohenems I think. The route through Bregenz is prohibited for trucks.

Thank you for this info. Anyway it's a shame that such developed countries have no 2 km motorway connection on a flat terrain.

I suppose there is no crowd on the border since nothing happened till now?

True.
Summary about the newly opened S1 and A5:
About S1:
From Knoten Eibesbrunn until Knoten Korneuburg is 13,5 km long. There are 4 new exits; Korneuburg/Leobersdorf , Korneuburg Nord, Hagenbrunn/Enzersfeld, and B7. There are 3 tunnels along the Autobahn. The longest tunnel is Unterflurstrasse Stetten (3,2 km). The S1,A21,A22, and other Schnellstrassen are part of Regionenring Wien.
Together with the older part of the S1 (Knoten Suessenbrunn until Knoten Eibesbrunn), the total cost is about 690 Million Euro.
About A5:
From Knoten Eibesbrunn until Exit Schrick is 23,5 km long. There are 4 Exits and 3 Halbanschlussstelle. 2 in direction to Vienna and 1 in direction to Drasenhofen (Brno). The 4 exits are: Wolkersdorf Nord, Wolkersdorf Sued, Hochleichten and Schrick. The 3 Halbanschlussstellen are: Ulrichskirchen, Gaweintal Mitte and Gaweintal Nord. Experts said that the A5 will make the transport easier from the Weinviertel (Northern Lower Austria) to Vienna. Before the motorway was built, the B7 is overcrowded. The first part of A5 costs 255 Million Euro and it took 3 years to built. After the first part of A5 was opened, the second part started. The second part of the Autobahn strech from Schrick until Drasenhofen. Later in the Czech Republic, it will goes to R52. The second part is 34 km long. It will open for traffic on 2013. It costs 250 Million Euro to built. There are 4 Exits and 2 Halbanschlussstellen. The 4 exits are: Wittersdorf Nord and Sued, Walterskirchen and Poysbrunn. The 2 Halbanschlussstellen are: Drasenhofen West and Drasenhofen Nord. It will cross the Mistelbach Region. This Motorway Construction Project will be in the highest priority of the Lower Austria Infrastructure.

S37. I think that map is VERY old, probably over 30 years. Notice it still features Yugoslavia and Czechoslovakia.

S4 was planned that way in the early 1960's.

Interesting, even at that time no fast connection was planned to Lienz and further to Italy, which would substantially shorten trips from south to Tirol and Switzerland.

1 thing I don't get about S34:
Why it's so short.
Why the Asfinag can't extend it..like to Mariazell
