That's not SS202 at all, but RA13.

Says who? (this is an old photo though, when the motorway began by Padriciano (no Carso Tunnel yet), and 4 lanes haven't really started yet, but a few meters further) Another indicator is instead of seeing this ("A4" over "437"), you see this (it says "collegamento autostradale" (motorway connection)). Check these links:

Oh, and the new expressway to Slovenia is apparently called SS15 Variante.

@Verso: I wouldn't say that that sign is very clear, but you're right, they do sign it

A23 Udine - I/AT border

The A23 connects northeastern Italy to the Austrian motorway network. A lot of tourists can be seen on this road. This motorway was scenerywise the most beautiful motorway of my whole trip. Large parts of this motorway consist of bridges and tunnels. We had to pay €8,70 toll (A4 and A23), but it was worth every eurocent. The view on the Alps was magnificent and the motorway is in a good shape, though there were some road works.

1. It's still flat here.



2. Very flat.



3. At first I thought that this was the Udinese football stadium, but GM tells me that the stadium is on the other side of the motorway. It turns out to be sort of a race track or a training ground: Google Maps.



4. Rest area ahead.



5. Stadium floodlights.



6. High, concrete crashbarrier.



7. Railway bridge.



8. Empty 2×3, the Alps can be seen in a distance.



9. Tarvisio, confine di Stato (border) and Villach are continuously signed on the A23.



10.



11. Viaduct.



12. On the shoulder there are lines leading you to the closest SOS spot.



13. Heading straight for the Alps.



14. Almost dry river bed. This reminds me of Alaska (exactly one year ago it was my last day there )



15. Unsharp



16. Rusty crashbarrier on the left



17. Straight motorway for a small bit.



18. Bridge+tunnel



19. Another viaduct, and some beautiful mountains



20.



21. Another viaduct ahead.



22. Empty



23. Just too late



That was part 1, part 2 is coming soon

Part 2

24. Curve.



25. Guess what? Viaduct



26. View into a valley.



27.



28. Road works.



29.



30. Narrow and beautiful valley



31. Bridge+tunnel again.



32. Tunnel.



33. Roadworks ahead.



34. View to the mountains.



35.



36.



37. Motorway bridge seen through the side window.



38.



39. Empty



40. Tollstation in 800 meters.



41. Mount Peč, the tripoint of Italy, Austria and Slovenia. I walked to the top from Rateče, about one week earlier.



42. Railway overpass.



43. Exit Tarvisio.



44.



45. Tunnel.



46. Straight and quiet



47. The railway passes us again. Austria 500 meters now. Notice that Arnoldstein is 4,5 km on the sign. For such a short distance half kms are ok, but I've seen a sign saying "Villach 123,5"



That's it! Hope you liked it, despite the dirty windshield

Nice stuff.

Signing a border from that far is useless... If it must be signed (not necessary in today's Schengen era), they should do it only from the last exit in Italy.

Yeah true, making good pics depends largely on the weather.

Nothing kills a good picture like depressing gray weather. For instance, when I tell my co-workers about Poland, they always get this "gray" image of the country. I showed them some sunny pics, and they thought it actually looked quite nice.
