A tour on the Grimsel, Susten and Furka passes, obviously by train and bus. Bus drivers during winter months drive the snowplows used also to reopen the passes.

The same bus driver run 5 or 6 times a day on these passes.

(today I have made a video of the A13 motorway going downhill from the San Bernardino tunnel - does anyone know a free software to cut, speed up and link MP4 files?)

What was the ultimate 'buildout' plan for that motorway stub end near the end of that clip?

Thank you. At around 1:45 the artificial part of the Uetliberg Tunnel can easily be seen. There is also apparently a service ramp for vehicles.

A new bypass is being studied for the A2 in Lucerne. The bypass would be 4,5 km long with a twin tube tunnel under the Reuss river, with two lanes per direction. The existing A2 would be expanded to 6 lanes north of the new tunnel (between Emmen Nord and Buchrain) and to 3+2 to the south (3 lanes northbound, 2 southbound). Cost is estimated at 1,7 billions CHF, opening not very soon.

That's not a bad idea. The existing A2 is quite winding there (although it used to be even more).

Luzern is despite it's relatively small size one of the largest choke-point in the Swiss Autobahn network. It's quite an urban section there.

I made a video last year:

Some detailed plans can be seen at the end of the file "Synthesebericht gross" (13MB): http://www.bypass.lu.ch/index/zweckm...samtsystem.htm

Rathausen and Schlund tunnel will be "doubled" adding a third tube.

There is also a plan to wide the A2 around Hergiswil, directly in place or with a variant in tunnel, but the is no a definitive project yet.

Why nearly nobody looks for alternatives? For trips like Frankfurt-Genova they are not much longer:

G S Bernard 873 km 8h34
Gotthard 808km 7h52
S Bernardino 866 km 8h31

There are also 4 km of jam also at the border (where policemen reduce the lanes from 2 to 1 per direction and wave you without checking nothing).

Alternatives? This is the TomTom age. People don't pay attention to their routes anymore, because the almighty TomTom will guide them.

The best alternative is to simply not drive today.

Sad but true.

And even if the A13 has jams, there is a fifth alternative: http://maps.google.ch/maps?f=d&sourc...,0.614548&z=11 (and unlike most non-motorway/main road passes, this one is kept opened year round; ADT 150 in winter and 1500 in summer)

It's probably better if everybody goes on Saturday. That leaves the other five, six days of the week with relative quietness on the roads.

It would be even better if someone tell Dutch and Germans to use the alternatives. In Switzerland there is a sort of club that send to his members news, suggestions, etc. There is something similar in the Netherlands? I hope that when the Gotthard tunnel close someone will tell these 30.000 drivers going on holiday not to come there the same day.

Now 3 km jam southbound, 1h45 waiting time northbound.
