Yes, but partly and as an Autostrasse (one lane per direction and without shoulders) as it will run mainly underground. A first tunnel avoiding Sisikon will open in 2017, a second tunnel linking it with the A4 near Brunnen/Schwyz will open in 2025 (replacing the existing Mositunnel, which will be downgraded to local road). A 3 km gap will remain in place, there are plans to build a fourth tunnel there to fill that gap but there is no financing yet (the other tunnel of the new Axenstrasse is the existing Flüelen tunnel). If all built they would form a chain of 4 separate tunnels totalling 12 km, with only short open sections between them.

Below you can find more details:

A likely undersized project for Bern (maybe before 2030):

What's the point of that? To move the motorway away from the city, or to straighten it up perhaps? I think the whole eastern bypass should be widened to 6 lanes, it's jammed every rush hour.

I thought it was intended to in crease capacity, but if the motorway remains 2x2...

I have found this website about historic transport infrastructures. It is partly trilingual and partly monolingual (according to the canton).

It took me 2.5 hours of research, but I managed to find nearly all exact opening dates of the A1. It would be nearly impossible to have found all these dates if it wasn't for the internet.

A2 Luzern - Horw, the first "Autobahn" of Switzerland. It opened 11 June 1955.

Later motorways were designed with more modern standards.

It's not really a bottleneck yet, although I agree with its widening.

There are 91.000 vehicles per day on that stretch.

I know, but I was never in a traffic jam there and I drove there dozens of times.

Actually you drive to the BEA (car parking) through the Bolligerstasse not the Papiermühlestrasse. You don't have to drive over the Wankdorfsplatz anymore to get to the BEA. Well to bad it wasn't finished when we went to the fair there, and I won't be there before 2014.

Here are some pics of the Wankdorf roundabout. I was coming from Worblaufen and was driving to Bolligen. Map (shows not the correct route, Google isn't updated yet)

Turning into Papiermühlestrasse


Approaching the roundabout




Left lane goes to Bolligen, Ostermundigen. The right lane allows you to turn right to Nordring heading to the railway station and the city center.


The roundabout


Exiting the roundabout


Continuing to Bolligen/Ostermundigen
