I dislike "semiautostrada". "Strada a scorrimento veloce" is much more interesting.

"Strada a scorrimento veloce" is just horrible to read! Semiautostrada/semiautoroute/autostrasse just sound good (the last is the best of the three - no prefixes, just a word)

N6 Rawil-autobahn

Does anybody has a project (or detailed description) of the former N6 autobahn which was intended to pass under the Rawyl?

I am thinking, notably of a precise map (not the one which was linked previously in this thread), the sketches of the tunnel, configuration of the road, etc.

Thank you in advance!

I would be surprised if such detailed plans existed. The project never got very far.

It is snowing everywhere. The A13/H13 is closed, the A2 too (but apparently the H2 is open), the Engadine can be reached only via the Tirol (north or south) and the Vereina shuttle. The Albula and Bernina railways are also closed. Many valleys are isolated or accessible only from Italy (like Val Bregaglia or Val Poschiavo).

Raining in Basel (about +5 C) so not quite everywhere...

Some parts of Switzerland are also not reachable even from Italy. A snowstorm blocked Simplon railroad on the Italian side, from Domodossola to Iselle.

Remember that around half of the 80 km of the motorway are in tunnels:

Here: http://motorways-exitlists.com/europe/ch/a16.htm

However, it has a mistake: Bure tunnel is near the French border, not near Gloveleir (it appears twice in this website).

Still about A16, two nice profiles of the Choindey-Tavannes section (5 to 8 MB):

Note that the A16's website doesn't hide the content of the directories, so it is possible to download some videos/hidden documents, like there: http://www.a16.ch/video/BE/2010/20ans_construction/ (browse also upwards, like http://www.a16.ch/video/BE/2010/ and so on).

Is there any movement in Switzerland to increase blank maximum speed limit to 130?

A popular initiative to increase speed limits and modify some other road laws is being prepared, but I don't know at which point it is.

I'd rather see some of the tunnel speed limits going from 80 to 100 km/h. Right now you have to slow down from 120 to 80 all the time.

Beside exceptions, unidirectional tunnels have a 100 km/h speed limit, bidirectional tunnels an 80 km/h limit. I can't think of motorways where there is an alternance of 80 and 120 limits, while 120-100-120 is the norm.

I would feel unsafe a bidirectional tunnel with 100 limit, however, unidirectional tunnels might support 120 instead of 100.

Norway's E 18 through Vestfold would go from 100 to 110, also through tunnels, when the whole stretch is completed in 2014. Weirdly, the road is designed for 115 km/h.

There are one or two tunnels in the Netherlands that allow 130 km/h.

Which tunnels do you mean? I only know the Walensee section (westwards) which is 80km/h but that's because it's on an old normal street with lot's of turns. Some stretches in cities have 80 km/h but that's because of traffic and not because of the tunnels.

Hmm, in my recollection there were many motorway tunnels limited at 80 km/h. But I viewed my A5 and A9 videos from 2010, and indeed the tunnels are limited at 100 km/h. Maybe I am confused with Germany.

Germany is a disaster zone when it comes to their tunnels. Problem is that when Germans go through tunnels abroad they take their bad habits with them and slam their brakes. They must have some sort of a fobie or other issues of some kind.

Switzerland isn't so bad with their tunnels as long as there are no Germans about. I've seen Swiss lorry drivers honking in despair at Helmut or Manfred in front...

Tunnels with hard shoulders in general should not have any additional speed limit. This is my opinion, but it is sadly not shared by most motorway companies.

Most motorway tunnels, even without shoulders, are not limited in Italy.
