No, this photo isn't mine. Did you spoke about it in the "International border crossings" thread, did you?

Svizzera - Approvato il progetto generale per la nuova Axenstrasse nei Cantoni Uri e Svitto
Dal 2025 la Svizzera centrale dovrebbe disporre di un collegamento tra Zurigo e la Svizzera meridionale più sicuro ed efficiente lungo la sponda urana del Lago dei Quattro Cantoni. Il 28 Gennaio 2009 il Consiglio federale ha infatti approvato il progetto generale della nuova Axenstrasse, le cui opere principali saranno la galleria di Sisikon (4,4 km) tra Ort e Gumpisch nel canton URI che sarà costruita tra il 2011 e il 2017 e quella di Morschach (2,8 km) tra Ingenbohl e Ort nel canton Svitto che sarà realizzata tra il 2018 e il 2025. La costruzione delle due gallerie comporterà una spesa di 743 milioni di Franchi Svizzeri, a cui si aggiungeranno 215 milioni destinati ai lavori di sistemazione sulla strada esistente.
La prossima fase consisterà nell'elaborazione e nella pubblicazione del progetto definitivo. Una volta conclusa la procedura di approvazione dei piani, incluso il trattamento definitivo delle eventuali opposizioni, il DATEC potrà autorizzare il progetto esecutivo. I dettagli tecnici saranno infine regolati nel progetto di dettaglio prima dell'aggiudicazione dei lavori di costruzione. 07/09

The Flüelen Tunnel (2,8 km) is the straight road in yellow. It will be followed by the Sisikon Tunnel (built first to free Sisikon village from traffic) then by Morschach Tunnel. They will have "only" one lane per direction and there will still be a lot of curves, but a "real" motorways would have required 2x12 km tunnels, and the traffic don't justify it (transit traffic from France and Germany uses mainly the A2 from Basel, and there is still the option of the A14).
Details of the project in German: http://www.ur.ch/dateimanager/axen_m...nz20070820.pdf

Is it true they don't keep the Julierpass open in winter since the completion of that shuttle?

No it isn't, the Julier pass is always kept open, except when there is too much danger of avalanches. The shuttle replaced the Flüela Pass, there has been a local referendum (as usual) to choose between the tunnel and heavy works of reconstruction of the pass road.

By the way there is also the Albula shuttle (Thusis-St Moritz), where passengers travel inside a regional train and capacity is lower.

The Engadin happens to be one of the most isolated areas of the Alps, only accessible via alpine passes. I think the easiest access is actually from Austria by road.

http://tagesschau.sf.tv/Nachrichten/...utschschweizer

Some interesting regional variations in the Swiss traffic behavior, according to a study which surveyed from 1997 to 2007.

Romandie = French speaking Switzerland (also: Westschweiz)
Deutschschweiz = German speaking Switzerland
Tessin = Ticino, Italian speaking Switzerland

The number of severely injured and killed dropped 21% in Deutschschweiz, 10% in Tessin and only 7% in Romandie

In Romandie, 35% of the fatal accidents was related to speed. In Deutschschweiz this was 21%, and 8% in Tessin.

DUI (Driving Under Influence), caused 20% of fatal accidents in Romandie, 19% in Tessin and only 11% in Deutschschweiz.

Seatbelt-usage is also low in Tessin, where 32% of the fatal accidents included a driver without seatbelt. This was 22% in Romandie and only 16% in Deutschschweiz.

Motorcycle traffic deaths were the highest in Tessin at 51%, against 33% in Romandie and 26% in Deutschschweiz.

Traffic safety was worst in Tessin, best in Deutschschweiz.

Hi, I made a Video from "Lucerne" to "Otelfingen" near Zürich, on the "new" A3.
Here is the route: http://tinyurl.com/Lucerne-to-otelfingen on Bing Maps.
(On Google Maps the new Highway is not included yet.)

A2 or A13

Sometimes I’m going by car through Switzerland and using their motorways. Most of the times I’m using A2. But sometimes I’m using A13 instead. It’s a longer way and it takes longer time. But I think A13 is more exciting than A2. A13 is more different and more interesting. So if I have time I prefer to take A13.

If you have time you can also use the Lötschberg Shuttle and the Simplon Pass.

The Kandersteg - Goppenstein shuttle is not very expensive: € 13 - € 16.

Kandersteg - Iselle, however, is € 57.

The Kandersteg-Iselle is not very frequent nor regular (about 1 to 10 trains a day only during holidays), so a high price is a way to reduce demand.
