Few pictures from that short branch of A2 near Klagenfurt (map):




I don't understand why here the traffic goes as 1+1 when the second carriage was not used at all (it was closed with no reason)...

On the way there are several parking lots where you can enjoy the view:

Villacher Alpenstraße is toled because I think it's mantained by a private company. It dosen't mak a connection between 2 towns, so it's only for tourists that want to go up the mountain for the panorama and the fresh air.

That's a remnant from the original planning of A2. The motorway was originally planned to pass right through Klagenfurt and the part coming from the West into Klagenfurt was built rather early. The original plan was then, understandably, dumped in favor of the Northern bypass of Klagenfurt. As the original route between August-Jankitsch-Straße and Wörthersee exit leads through a pretty densely populated area and only acts as a feeder by now the second carriageway was closed and decommissioned for noise abatement and money savings. This was easily possible as the AADT on this stretch doesn't need four lanes

It`s possible that the second carriege was closed due to poor surface. So it became 1+1.

I remember reading the press release quite recently (last year or so). The section from Wörthersee to Klagenfurt center was given to the state of Carinthia in 2002. According to wiki, the AADT on this feeder now under state administration is only around 10,000 cars/24 h so they decided to make it 1+1 and use the Southern carriageway as parking lot which was needed near the lake anyway. Thus, they got a parking lot without having to find new space and without making any drastic deteriorations in traffic flow.

You left the motorway right before that (direction Loibl/SLO).

That's a very odd setup in Klagenfurt indeed. It seems to stem from the fact that during the construction of A2 the plans were changed and this already finished part became obsolete or rather a feeder for the new A2. Hence the additional two lanes weren't needed anymore. It still looks quite odd though.

S10 Unterweitersdorf - Freistadt

The construction of S10 between Unterweitersdorf to Freistadt in Oberösterreich began yesterday. It will connect Linz and the Austrian motorway network towards the Czech Republic. The S10 features a number of tunnels, out of which the 4.4 km long Tunnel Götschka is the longest. This is due to a steep valley gradient which needs to be tunneled through to keep road grades within acceptable standards. It is currently the largest new motorway project in all of Austria.
