I'd say so ... could almost go into the foreign plates thread, as BY-plated passenger cars are not an everyday sight (might be different for trucks).

The yellow sign are for a bypass in case of an close of the normal way. (accident, weather...). These signs are permanent and so not for "normal" roadwork.
This on should say: if the A2 direction east is closed, you can you on north on the A9 and than S35 and S6 back to the A2.

btw: The VW-bus on the bridge (left) is an police van, and they control the speed. (And i life nearby )

Bruck - Graz - (Spielfeld) here. S35 was not entirely finnished yet, it was 2 years ago.

But yes, we have lack of photos of those motorways, especially S6, and especially in direction west from A9!
i've been thinking few days ago how we have lack of S16 photos here.

It is more interesting (at least S6), but it takes longer especially because of many 100 km/h sections despite much less traffic. Also A2 is getting new pavement on the hills around Pinggau which is the worst part of A2 so it will be a bit better to go there for Wien.

Two weeks ago I also took S36/S37 to see alternative (ok, it is not), expect pictures.

Yep, it is. Is it strange for you? If you ever go to Wilno (Vilnius), you'll see a lot of similar ones.

I see BY plates quite frequently in the Netherlands, but they're either trucks or auto-trailer vans. I've never seen a BY passenger car.

thanks! I see that Austrians have the same kind of signs for motorways and expressways.

Too bad I forgot to take some photos. I took the A9 today when I was going back to Rotterdam and I must say it's one of the most beautiful highway routes I've ever taken but I'd rather choose to go via Vienna than via A9 because very often you have speed limits of 80km/h or 100km/h, a lot of road works and tunnel works and long dusty tunnels with speed limits as low as 60km/h and you have to stop for toll twice. It took 2h what shouldn't take more than an hour, but other than that the feeling is just awesome. I think the altitude is some 700m - 800m, a lot of greenery around, mountains...beautiful.

It would be better if they limit tunnels at 100 km/h and not at 80 km/h. The lanes are usually the same width, the absent shoulder is not a reason to lower a speed limit by 40 or 50 km/h. In Italy you can even drive 130 km/h through tunnels. Some tunnel sections in the Alps have highly annoying speed limits because you have to slow down to 80 km/h every 2 - 3 km.

AFAIFK the austrian motorway tunnels are limited to 100km/h, at least I wasn't in a tunnel with lower limit on motorways, only on main roads where it is 80km/h.

Well, in some of A9's tunnels you have oncoming traffic, therefore 80 km/h does make sense. I am pretty sure these are the only ones with that speed limit.

I've seen many twin-tube tunnels in the Alps with an 80 km/h speed limit. For instance that tunnel in A2 around Klagenfurt. I believe it even has section control, but I'm not sure.
