Where is exactly this new stretch of A6 ? Is it this missing stretch to A93 ?

Yeah, it would fill the last gap in the A6, running all the way from the French border to the Czech border.

Some nice pics from the double-divided A9 at the Altmühl-valley (taken today):

The uphill lane:


The divided downhill lane:


And the northern end of the divisions:


When they widen the Autobahn to 2x3 the only build a new uphill lane and uses both old lanes for the downhill traffic.

I have a question: when you drive from Austria (Salzburg) to Munich is one hill, motorway has in bot directions 3 lanes but because of big hill are trucks very slow and there are usually traffic jams!!! Are they planing to build fourth lane or something else to solve this problem????

Those divided motorways are also in Slovenia, for me is this very interesting!

What do you mean by double-divided?

As you can see, the downhill lane is also divided. So it's a separated 2+1 road, but all traffic moves in the same direction. Am I right?

Why did they double-divide it?

Because of safety reasons I think - trucs when too fast while going downhill are not a danger for other cars

Or maybe it was cheaper than making 2x3 plus emergency lane

I think that doble llane road downhill is old road (like Grosuplje-Višnja Gora) and Germas just added one lane because it was easier then adding one lane to old road because hill is too step!!! (if you understand what am I saying...)!

Yes.
Both lanes are seperated and one lane is divided itself.

They only had to change the marking for the downhill lane.

Thats the Kindinger Berg, right?
Actually, it probably would make much more sense to dedicate more lanes for traffic to the top (southbound) than for downhill traffic.

Btw., I'm not aware of any development plans for the Irschenberg (the hill on A8 Munich-Salzburg). It's a bottleneck and widening to 2x3 wouldn't solve all problems, I suppose.

It already is 3x3, so I suppose that you mean 3x4... It would solve this problem a little how I think, now even on saturday morning are congestions...

12 lanes would solve the problem IMHO.

Haha I absolutely hate adding lanes to a highway. Personally, I believe that four lanes is maximum (with a shoulder that can turn into an extra lane during rush hours). We shouldn't rely on cars.
