ChrisZwolle, a road legend

Pictures I took last month while heading to Innsbruck from Salzburg:

On A8 in Germany, taking the exit to A93:





A93 to Innsbruck:





A12 in Austria:



There were some roadworks near Innsbruck:





Left: A13 - Italy
Right: A12 - Switzerland



On A13:




Hope that now all of you have an ideea how the actual signage is like

Trentino and Veneto share the same Italian spirit. In fact Trentino is also known as "Venezia Tridentina" (Veneto of Trento). Their history have been sometimes similar, sometimes different, but they always fought Austrian rule. Alto Adige/Südtirol, did not. It is a part of Italy many Italians don't feel their own.

In some ways, Trento is more Italian than Venezia. The independentist Lega Nord party is strong in Veneto (even if stronger is Liga Veneta, who fights not for independence of Northern Italy but for that of Veneto alone), while independentist parties in Trentino are irrelevant.

Some of these last posts where off-topic. I don't like the signs with only Bozen on E45... They should add Bolzano (Or even write Bozen/Bolzano/Bulsan, in German/Italian/Ladin ).

BTW, I didn't know there's already Google Street View in Austria : http://maps.google.es/maps?ie=UTF8&l...144.45,,0,1.08

Sure, this signing has been a suitable improvement there. Wien, Verona as well as the remarks concerning Brenner and Tauern - two very important Alpines motorways.....

Innsbruck remains the main focal point in western Austria. It is a large city (großstadt) and a major hub for traffic.

Not realy,it does not make sense The only place where you could put one such sign is before the border crossing a few kilometers before basel cause there is not a big city between basel and milano,you dont reach zürich or bern when you drive over the A2

about signs issue; I think there should be both names in italian and german; historical reasons (which are OT here ) should not be involved, the fact is sudtirol is Italy, so if we, Slovenes can put Trst/Trieste, Austrians should do that as well.

So your map shows the same deficits as the road signs in Tirol.

Well, intl. maps are usually like that, and not peppering a map with several names. All I'm saying is that it seems appropriate to me to add Italian names, for the sake of foreigners.

how do you make such big maps? I was thinking of merging more screen captures to one big picture, is there any other way?

The A23 will face major constructions starting in April. The segment Hanssonkurve (3 km long) receives a new concrete surface. Even though most work will be done during the night hours, huge congestions will be the result.

For those speaking german:
