Isn't that little piece of A13 near hellange finished yet? I heard an angry farmer won't give up his piece of land Now all traffic has to go via a roundabout to a temporary road around the farmer's land to reach the rest of the highway
http://maps.google.nl/?ie=UTF8&ll=49...&t=k&z=14&om=1

And are there any plans to extend the A7 further north? Towards Belgium or Germany maybe?

A1 Luxembourg - Trier
This serie travels from the busy southern bypass of Luxembourg, via the airport towards Trier. This is one of the busiest Luxembourgian motorways. On the last rest area near the border at Wasserbillig, you have an excellent scenic view over the Moselvalley.

A13 Pétange - Perl
This Autoroute goes from the industrial cities around Esch-sur-Alzette via the Spa's of Mondorf-les-Bains to the Mosel Valley. We also pass by Schengen, known from the Schengen treaty. A small section east of Croix de Bettembourg isn't finished, because a farmer won't sell it's land.

The traffic on the A13 between A3 and Germany is very quiet. By so few settlements visible from it, you get impression as if no one lives there. I felt like in the middle of nowhere.

Great motorways, the crashbarriers are my taste.

In my opinion, Luxembourg has one of the best motorways of Europe. The pavement is always smooth and new. However the signage is not the best. It's a mix of German, Belgian and French signage.

I just wanted to say that traffic signs look incredibly old!

No way, the font is French! You immediately recognize it from the funny "R".

Why is Saarbrücken sometimes written without Umlaut (dots above "u")?

French font is in Capital letters...

I don't know about the umlaut ü. They don't know it with Ettelbrü/uck either.

You should see the Struma motorway on Sundays or somewhen at night not on weekends, you see almost no car even on the two lamed national road but on the motorway you could travel as fast as you want.

Right! What's this font (and how do you know which font it is, anyway)? It looks very similar to the Swiss and Slovenian (ex-Yugoslav) fonts.

The Gousselerbierg tunnel in the A7 motorway has opened in Luxembourg. It is the longest road tunnel in Luxemburg at 2,7 kilometers.

nice one! does somebody know about Luxembourg's plans about extending A7, is it going more to the north up to Weiswampach? are there some more plans for new motorways, perhaps A15 Ettelbruck - Bastogne (B)?

Interesting. Are there any plans for a ringroad around Luxembourg (completing the northern part)? It would also shorten the route between Belgium and Germany.

Are the signs lit from within? They look a bit "thick" in some of your pictures.
