No problem. I expect everyone guessed what you meant. I had planned to not post anything about it until you asked what's the difference.

Incredible traffic congestion due to the winter holiday switch weekend. The delay over the Fernpass is at least 3 hours, and A12 is not much better.

More traffic, less congestion

Traffic volumes in Austria increased in 2010; 1.1% more passenger traffic and 3.7% more freigt traffic on the Austrian Autobahn system. Yet traffic congestion fell by 10% nationwide.

The congestion drop was most significant at the Tauern Tunnel, where congestion decreased by 70% in 2011, due to the opening of the second tube at June 30th, 2011. Overall congestion in Salzburg dropped by 30%.

The only locations where congestion increased were in Wien and Tirol, both by 1%. Because Wien weighs in heavy in overall congestion, the nationwide drop was only 10%.

Congestion change by state:

Burgenland: -22 %
Kärnten: -10 %
Niederösterreich: -11 %
Oberösterreich: -18 %
Salzburg: -30 %
Steiermark: -5 %
Tirol: +1 %
Vorarlberg: -13 %
Wien: +1 %

I did that the last time I came back to Italy from Munich. I left the Autobahn at Innsbruck Süd and drove out of the Autostrade all the way to Brescia. It took twice the time needed, but it was worthwile: beautiful landscapes, and 20€ saved.

The Austrian part is a rip-off with 25ct per km. Its also no problem to save the toll sticker because its 30km shorter - http://g.co/maps/2wb8q
At Sterzing, I paid nothing until last summer at a very short barrier which is replaced now. Next time I will take a 'mancato pagamento-ticket'.

No, Arlberg Schnellstraße is not 2x2 all the way. There will be no second tube for the Arlbergtunnel. Instead they connected it to the railway tunnel which is almost exactly parallel to it and they will use that tunnel for evacuation (and vice versa).

Plans for linking the Austrian and Swiss motorway systems exist for decades but have never worked out so far and it won't happen within the next ten years.

I'm curious about that: from where S6 begins?
B54 (so the first IC is a totso) or A2?

I'd say from B54, because if that's not S6, what is it then?

It could have another number, like the part between A4 and Venice airport in Italy. It is considered "A57 dir", not A27 as it would be logical.

Here are some pics I took last September on A2 Autobahn in Austria, from Villach to the Italian border (map)

Entering A2 autobahn from Villach:







You're welcome



Nice view



Everytime I saw Arnoldstein on direction signs I was thinking at Arnie





Left lane closes ahead:



Italia - 1 km ahead



All vehicles directed through the parking lot:



This happened because ASFiNAG was checking the vignettes.



I will post the rest of the pics on the Italian thread.

Ok, but this one is even shorter (much shorter).

Funny thing is that this ramp is actually longer (2.6 km) than the remainder of the S6 (2.3 km).
