No because then we would have the same amount of traffic as the Brenner route.

no, There´s as least one point against it:

swiss has an own vignette too and boarders as a non eu country.

i think it will never be like Brenner, even with 2nd tube (but of course traffix amount would raise)

Austria have a Vignette too, plus there is a Mout (toll) there is no toll on the Gotthardtunnel.

which surely would change when they would do a "mamut"-project like a second tube

Hardly, the Canton Ticino would do anything to prevent having a toll on the Gotthard. It's to political. The Grand St.Bernhard is the only route that has toll in Switzerland. There would have to be laws changed, if not even the constitution before there is a toll on the Gotthard.

I think a 27 euro vignette is expensive enough for generally no more than 3 hours driving through Switzerland.

You only pay it once a year, nothing compared to the LSVA.

The toll for the Mont Blanc tunnel is 33 euro, plus 10 euro on the italian A5 to Turin. Then you have to pay the other Italian and French motorways. Every time you use the route, not every year.

(another tolled route in Switzerland is the Munt la Schera tunnel, see page 7 of this thread, and the car shuttle trains)

(instead of another Gotthard tunnel, I would like a road between Bellinzona and Chiavenna - there is only one link between these two regions, about 30 km sout of these two towns)

I've been to Chiavenna once, it's surrounded by high mountains except for the southern side. The nearest pass to Switzerland is the Splügenpass. I had a vacation in Vicosoprano (not far from the Malojapass) a couple of years ago. Wonderful nature over there.

I like the Swiss signage. Usually very clear. Also, the font is better than that what they use in neighboring countries (except Germany).

Yes they can use it as a Runway, when there will be war

There are 4 Parts who can be used as runways for arcrafts here in Switzerland.
