Nice pics, nils16! Do you perhaps know what they are building by the eastern Bern bypass (A6) close to Wankdorf? Is it a new stadium, or?

No, that's in the western part of Bern, but I didn't know about it either. It will lie on the top of that tunnel apparently.

thats because the average swiss guy doesnt drive hummers and people prefer travelling by train.

So the busiest motorway is the A1 just west of Zürich with 112.900 vehicles a day? That's not so bad. The San Bernardino connection is really quiet, only 6.100 AADT.

^ Are you kidding? Population density is almost 200 inh./km2. You can barely overtake between Zürich and Bern, for example.

A few people know the three alternatives to the Gotthard motorway. Even if they are not motorways, they are well maintained and wide.

A few numbers about other transalpine roads:
Fréjus and Mont Blanc: AADT 5.000
Great St Bernard and Simplon: AADT 2.500
Lötschberg shuttle train: AADT 4.000 (annually: 1.6 million vehicles)
Furka shuttle train: 200.000/year (pass road closed during winter)
Gotthard: AADT 20.000 and 45.000 in a record day (and no, I don't want a second tube)
San Bernardino: AADT 6.100
Vereina shuttle train: 400.000/year (pass road closed during winter)
Brenner: AADT 40.000 (not sure)

An old article: http://www.uvek.admin.ch/dokumentati...en&msg-id=8708

(population density is about 182 people/km2, but 2/3 of the land is mountainous thus with a low population)

Yeah, Panoramio has some issues because they're migrating it onto Google servers or something.

Nice pics, a few of them aren't totally in order, hehe.

Is there any map (or at least text) showing when Swiss motorways (and expressways) were built? I'm interested in that.
