You're most likely talking about the Ehrentalerbergtunnel, which is equipped with section control. Speed limit is 100 km/h.

Going via Vienna would be a huge detour if you come from SLO/Maribor, 443 compared to 256 km. The Gleinalm toll you can easily avoid by going from Deutschfeistritz via S35 to Bruck/Mur and then the S6 back to St. Michael where you get back onto A9 (S35 is meant as a cutoff for the Bruck/Mur-Leoben-Vienna bound traffic from Graz).

Sometimes in high traffic conditions they limit the speed to 80 km/h with variable signs as the capacity is highest at 80 km/h. Usually, most if not all twin-tube tunnels in Austria have 100 km/h default speed limit. The 60 km/h speed limit was probably in a construction zone.

The following projects are canceled because of budget cuts. They will save € 1.4 billion with this.

* A23 Wien extension to A1 canceled (€ 436 million saved)
* A24 Wien connector between A23 and S1 canceled (€ 490 million saved)
* A26 Linz, northern branch canceled (€ 400 million saved)
* S31 southern extension to Hungarian border (Szombathely) cancelled (€ 83 million saved)

Most likely. Austria has so many big infrastructure projects going on right now, or are about to start, that this step is just a logical consequence.

In my opinion, these are the least worst to cut back on.

Well, probably you right. But if you ever drove on A7 you will agree that Linz needs A26 badly. No day without massive traffic jams on A7.

BUT: the widening of A3xA2 intersection wasnt cancelled fortunately.

Former Wien - Budapest international highway(B10) between Nickelsdorf and Parndorf

Road quality is excellent, and speed limit is 100km/h so it was quite a good drive.
(the shaking of the first 30-35 sec is my fault, sorry)

Yes with a video editing software. Only put my googled pics into the timeline than rescaled and positioned it and played a bit with the opacity at the appearing and disappearing.

I will reinstall my computer and before that I wanted to try out adobe premiere pro so i downloaded a trial version of it (with after effects to stabilize the videos). Sometimes it's a bit too professional the stabilizer don't works always properly and eats up totally my memory... I only recommend to try it if you have 2GB+ RAM. But you can put these signs into the video with most of the video editing sofwares.

Yes, most crossings in the Alps were a disaster last Saturday (45 km queue for the San Bernardino Tunnel). However, once the two tubes of the Tauern Tunnel are in operation from June 30th, the multi-hour delays are a thing of the past. I think some congestion is still possible due to safety-related blockabfertigung, but that will cause minor delays compared to the 4-hour delays there used to be...

Probably most delays will be caused by the toll station after June.
