Nice pics!
Looks like a very scenic route between Villeneuve and Vevey.

I'm surprised Geneva isn't signed at all at the junction in Vevey, it's less than 100km away and the most important city in the Romandy.

Thanks!
The motorway between Vevey and Lausanne through vineyards of Lavaux is also very scenic but sadly I have very few pictures from this stretch. Same about ordinary road between two towns down on the shore of lake.

By-pass of road 10 between A1 and A5
It's the shortest road between Bern and Neuchatel and so it's quite busy. There were plans to build it wholly as a expressway but currently it's missing a link between two opened stretches by-passing Müntschemier. No idea if there are still plans to build this stretch. Most of the traffic is running from Ins to Murten to take the motorway A1 so there are currently no problems with traffic in Müntschemier.

The by-pass of Kerzers is built as 2x2 expressway. As most of the transit to A5 is using road from Murten to Ins to connect to the expressway this stretch of expressway is quite empty.

End of 2x2 road. The missing link to Ins should be going directly from here but the road is turning sharply to the right to arrive to road 10.

Lovely pics! Transit has been avoiding Müntschemier for quite some time, so I've already forgotten that the Kerzers bypass is 4-laned; I thought it was a 2-lane expressway/motorroad.

Good pics again.

Roundabout on expressway is just weak
Didn't know they existed on swiss motorroads. Are there any others?
I know of a left turn exit somewhere in Schaffhausen, still better than a roundabout.

There are even some roundabouts on motorways in Switzerland

One is at the connection of A5 and A16 near Biel/Bienne. I can post a picture of it some day. It's probably staying like this until motorway around Biel/Bienne is completed. And it's really signed as a motorway at this roundabout.

Another is on A7 near Kreuzlingen. Not 100 % sure if this part of the road is signed as motorway or expressway.

There may be some more places like this.

Road 20 between Neuchatel and La Chaux-de-Fonds. It's cantonal motorway/expressway which is connecting two biggest towns of canton of Neuchatel.

Road starts from A5 in Neuchatel and starts to climb through the city up to Jura mountains.

Soon it arrives to Jura and has to go through Seyon Gorges. The lines to north are going through the gorge but lines to south are running mostly through tunnels parallel to gorge.

This road (together with others) has been recently transferred from the canton of Neuchâtel to the central government, so it will probably renumbered with an A soon or later (maybe A20?).

You have any link for these news? Are they planning to make it a toll road with vignette also?
