Sorry, forgot to mention that little detail.

It's in the Wölzer Tauern mountains near Sölkpass, between St Peter am Kammersberg, Schöder, and the T-intersection with B96.

here's a map:

B221 is an important and often congested thoroughfare, but it's not limited access and there are traffic lights - lots of them. And as you can see, it covers only the western half of Vienna.

Since nobody mentioned it...

On April 30th, 2010, the second tube of the Tauern Tunnel came into operation. The old tube is now being renovated and will open halfway through 2011. If that happens, all of the A10 will feature 2x2 lanes throughout.

great. those tunnels were always so smelly and smoky and hot that without internal air condition and cooling you didn't survive.

Approaching a popular ski-touring area (Greim 2474 m) in Styria, pretty close to the border of Salzburg (Preber 2740 m). Both are popular among ski tourers and mountaineers as well and offers a perfect training ground for touring in almost all conditions. To ski is to enjoy being alive or staying alive.

We don't need any new motorways in Austria and twinning single tube tunnels is a big big waste of money. Unfortunately it's a mafia consisting of local politicians, the construction industry and the truck freight lobby, that manage to get money into their pockets and make taxpayers spend more money on roads, which mostly benefit the interest of others.

That's why the quality of life along the Brennerautobahn went down the drain, with all the transit traffic from Germany to Italy. And that's why the Arlberg region will be ruined, once all the remaining pieces will be upgraded to Autobahn standard, because then it will be an ideal transit route too.

And thanks God the damn S18 was abolished and no alternative will ever be constructed. It would have cut right through a nature reservation. And now they can't find an alternative corridor, so S18 is dead.

Wrong. Lustenau - Au is used for trucks. All toll checks are done at the main cargo trainstation in Wolfurt. From there trucks drive via A14 and L204 to the border station in Lustenau.

S35 is finished

On May 29 the last part of the S35 opened. It's now completely finished. The opened section includes 2 2-tube tunnels.
