Great snowy pics! Lucomagno/Lukmanier Pass is one of few in Switzerland I never drove over.

It is worth during winter as it is one of the few not being closed.

If one has 50 euro + 9 for each passenger the Oberalp shuttle is also an option. Or the train alone (9 euro each way).

Traffic flowing in opposite directions without barriers on the A2 in Luzern (29 January 2011).

The lane control lights need to be moved, so that they are over the center of each lane. The way they are positioned now, is kinda confusing.

As I have already written, some roads have been transferred from the cantons to the central government.

Some informations of these changes can be found here, as usual in the three main national languages.

http://www.admin.ch/ch/i/gg/pc/docum...ht_Vorlage.pdf (Italian)
http://www.admin.ch/ch/f/gg/pc/docum...ht_Vorlage.pdf (French)
http://www.admin.ch/ch/d/gg/pc/docum...ht_Vorlage.pdf (German)

A map can be found at the end of each document. Not all these green roads are motorways (class 1) or autostrasse (class 2), so not all will receive the "red diamond" on signs. Only class 1 and 2 roads may receive them, possible new numbers are A10, A17, A18, A20, A21, A22, A32, A34, A38 (or at least a part of them).

These will not be new motorways, for road users the only effect will be a change in numbering and signs, if that happens. Swiss numbering scheme is quite illogic and confusing, and most numbers are used only for adminsitrative purposes (and on OpenStreetMap!).

Any idea why the motorway sections of N34 (today's A53, Zürcher Oberlandautobahn) are only classified as 2nd class rather than 1st class? It's a complete s2+2s cross section with 120 km/h speed limit after all.

I don't know. Also other motorways are (partly) classified as second class apparently without reason.

(I haven't watched all of them to say if it's the Italian or the Swiss side)

The machine says "ANAS Aosta", which suggests that it is the Italian side. Towards the end of the second part, you see a yellow machine coming from the other side. Must be the Swiss machine approaching from the North.

Great movie !

16 parkings for trucks, with just toilets and no other services, will be built in the next years. 12 of them already exist or are in planning (like the check points where trucks are inspected), and will be enlarged.

Huge accident on A4 south of Zürich. Apparently in the work zone.






When are these works finished? They were working there already in 2009 when I drove from Zürich to Luzern.

A drunk man lost one wheel of his Mercedes and ran on three wheels for about 5 km before the car finally broke down completely: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jCpCbrhYgdI

I drove there last September. I was a bit disappointed, because I didn't planned to use the train to Zermatt, and you can't see the Matterhorn from the Visp - Täsch road.
