To make things even more complicated.

Really, that next exit is actually where A2 goes and it is an exit for Wien-center - defacto this is A2-S1-A21-A23 interchange. Maximize zoom in Google maps (only map) to see it better.

But you can also continue straight forward and you'll still get to A23 (both directions, east and west). So really, what's the purpose of making two branches for the same destination?

Actually, going straight forward you get to A23, which continues northeast. Going right you stay on A2, which continues northwest. And as I remember (it's been one year, when I was travelling right there) you cannot turn to A2 after this exit anymore. This was probably done to avoid weaving of traffic from A2 with those from A21 and S1.

All OK, but bad signage makes navigating through all that spaghetti difficult.

Schnellstraße are roads identified always by the signal autostraße and Schnellstraße are tolled and dual carriageway is not mandatory. Schnellstraße are identified by the capital letter S. Always trumpet/Cloverleaf interchange.

By the way the signal autostraße can be identified other roads (≠ Schnellstraße).

Is that right?

Generally yes, except that some motorways are also signed as "S" roads, e.g. S33 (to fool NIMBYs).

What about motorway A5 between Wien and checzian border? When it should be opened? I heard that it was planned to open this motorway in 2010 year.

There was some news recently:

Quote:
Die A5 hat Priorität

Ende November wird es offiziell bekannt gegeben: Die Nordautobahn wird weiter gebaut.

Möglicherweise war der Beschluss der tschechischen Regierung ausschlaggebend, der jetzt doch einen vierspurigen Ausbau der R52 bis Drasenhofen-Mikulov und nur einen zweispurigen Bau der R55 bei Breclav vorsieht.

Mikulov-Drasenhofen ist damit in Abkehr eines früheren Regierungsbeschlusses eindeutig als Grenzübertrittspunkt für die Autobahnverbindung Wien-Brünn festgelegt. Klar ist damit für die Straßenplaner, wie es auf tschechischer Seite weitergehen soll. Dem Vernehmen nach planen die Tschechen, bereits 2014 mit ihrer Autobahn an der Grenze bei Drasenhofen anzulanden. Und dieser Druck ist auch notwendig. Denn die Förderzusagen aus Brüssel für das Projekt laufen 2013 aus.
http://www.noen.at/lokales/noe-ueber.../art2689,11464

The construction of the A5 to the Czech border will be sped up - official plans will be unfolded in November. Reason is EU funding and the fact the CZ government is speeding up the construction of R55, which may reach the Austrian border by 2014.

Traffic at this border crossing increased by 31% last year.

A5 will be connected to R52 (Brno - Mikulov). R55 is another project bypassing town of Břeclav a heading towards Hodonin and Uherske Hradiste.

The rest is more less true, R52 is being sped up because of the fact that it's EU priority axis (25 if I remember correctly).

Actually, it was opened to traffic today. The opening ceremonies and speeches by politicians were held yesterday.

With the good news of the S33 bridge being completed, there's also some bad news: plans for the proposed Lobau Tunnel, the only remaining gap on Vienna's ring motorway, will be postponed. The 1.7 billion Euro (1700 million) price tag was the official reason given by the ASFINAG. Before the announcement of the delay, it was scheduled to open in 2018. Also the fact that the green party (outspoken opponents to the project) may gain some influence in city hall, will certainly not make matters any easier.

How many stretches of motorways u/c in Austria? What about map of austrian motorways system?
When are you going to begin built motorway S7 between Graz and hungarian border and part of motorway S31 in direction of hungarian border?

ASFINAG, the Austrian motorway/expressway road authority, will invest € 6,5 billion in the 2011 - 2016 period. This is a rather drastic budget cut of € 2,8 billion or rougly 30%. (The rail budget cut is only some 10%).

Still, a large number of useful projects will be build.

map with projects

1) A14: 2nd tube Pfänder Tunnel + renovation existing tube
2) S16: construction Dalaaser Tunnel
3) Arlberg Tunnel: safety projects
4) A12: Innsbruck - Amras: traffic safety projects
5) A10: 2nd tube Tauern Tunnel + renovation existing tube
6) A11: safety measures Karawanken Tunnel
7) A9: 2nd tube Bosrücktunnel
8) A9: 2nd tubes Tunnelchain Klaus
9) S10: construction Unterweitersdorf - Freistadt
10) S34: construction St. Pölten - Wilhelmsburg
11) S3: construction Hollabrunn - Guntersdorf
12) A5: construction Poysbrunn - CZ border
13) A5: construction Schrick - Poysbrunn
14) S1: construction Knoten Schwechat - Süßenbrunn
15) S8: construction Knoten Deutsch Wagram - Gänserndorf
16) S8: construction Gänserndorf - SK border
17) A3: construction Eisenstadt - H border
18) S7: construction Riegersdorf - H border
19: A23; construction Landstraße Eurogate

The most visual projects are the construction of the S1, which is the eastern bypass of Wien (Vienna), including a Danube tunnel. Another big project is the construction of A5 from Wien to the Czech border. S8 will run towards the Slovak border, and S7 and A3 will be constructed to the Hungarian border.

This means the number of motorway border crossings in eastern Austria will be increased from 2 to 6.

Are there any urgent road projects excluded from the plan? With the expansion of the EU, it became necessary to improve the road connections between Austria (especially Vienna) and countries such as the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, and Slovenia. That requires ramping the road budget up and then back down again once the major works have been completed.

I think the Linz bypass has been scrapped, including an extension to the Czech border (which would connect to D3 towards Praha). I also think the expressway north of Hollabrunn has been scrapped.

The Karawankentunnel (Villach - Ljubljana) will receive safety upgrades, not a second tube although I believe there is some pressure to spend some more money for a second tube.

The extension of A7 towards the czech border isn't on that list as S10 (unfortunately only till freistadt, but from there on traffic isn't so unbearable)? Also I see on that list the expressway north of Hollabrunn, S3.

Do you mean postponed or really scrapped?

I thought it would be the A7 that would be extended to meet the D3 at the Czech border. You're not suggesting it would be the 126, are you?
