Local residents (and taxis) are allowed up to the outskirts of Zermatt, a few km uphill than Täsch, but even them cannot enter Zermatt itself. The only allowed combustion engine vehicles are garbage trucks, emergency vehicles, and some other special vehicles (but even construction materials for new buildings are transported by the small battery vehicles).

12 € return for the train shuttle is quite much, but as there are many people willing to pay for it they have no reason to lower ticket prices.

I guess the residents pay a lot less for a ticket?

I doubt, as residents don't have to take the train and can reach the entrance of Zermatt by car (but cannot reach their house).

However, standard fare system for swiss public transport vehicles also apply to the Zermatt shuttle trains (half-fare card, general abonment, ...).

Finally I think some hotels may give discount cards for the train shuttle to their guests.

Does that mean the end of all the Kantonale Autobahnen?

At least it means the number of vignette-obligatory roads increases. However, I don't see this as a major problem as you can hardly avoid the vignette-obligatory roads anyway.

Only the owner will change, the type of road will remain the same. This means than the existing first class cantonal roads (autobahnen/autoroutes/autostrade) and second class roads (autostrassen) will be tolled with the vignette, while the third class roads (standard 1x2 roads, but usually quite wide) will be untolled.

Thusis-St Moritz is and will still be third class road.

The text confirms also that the vignette price will increase from 40 to 100 CHF, and that a two month vignette will be introduced for 40 CHF, but this was already known.

It's still a missing part between Switzerland and Austria. They should have a motorway between A13 in Switzerland and the Austrian motorway A14. Is there any plans to build that missing part?

Rheintalautobahn.

The least they could do is build a direct connector between the Swiss A13 and Austrian A14. Right now all east-west route connecting both motorways are going through city limits, while both motorways are only 2 km apart in some areas.

Does the German A861 really extend into Switzerland with the same number, or that short motorway is numbered A3?

Looks like the only interchange on this short motorway (Rheinfelden-West) is numbered #14a, which would include it in the A3 (junction Rheinfelden is #14).

In Google Earth, the A861 bridge over Rhein river vanishes as it enters Germany!


(Germany to the North, Switzerland to the South)

The Swiss side was taken at that date written on image. Imagery from German side dates back to 2001 so that is the reason of disappearing bridge
