The introduction of tolls on Stelvio pass road (South Tyrol side) has been postponed for at least a year. President of South Tyrol Luis Durnwalder explained that there are still some legal and organizational thing to set before the toll can be introduced.

Usually ovals are placed after a foreign town, instead of after a domestic town before the border like in this example.

Is there a point for the road to go around the peak? Just the views, it doesn't seem to gain a lot of height there.

Yeh, it is more about the panoramatic view there. And the downhill is not so steep. This place as well as Hochtor tunnel are two peak sections on the road

Well, at least you can drive on Vrsic pass without paying crazy touristic fees and it's open also at night.
The Glossglockner Hochalpenstrasse was built as a major trunk road, connecting two different parts of Austria but today is used almost only for touristic purpouses, with the consequent tolling and construction of many touristic facilities along it. It's comparable to the Stelvio pass in Italy. However it's not a touristic-only dead-end road, like the Villacher Alpenstrasse or the road to the "Tre Cime di Lavaredo" in Italy.

I prefer narrower mountain roads, at least if they have mainly a tourist purpose. However, major roads should be wide (like E652 over Ljubelj/Loibl).

The highest road in Slovenia will be partly closed until next year because of a rockfall.

Passo San Boldo (Veneto, Italy) 706m SP635

This unique spectacular road was built by soldiers during WWI. Every harpin turn is located inside a tunnel. The road has a single lane and traffic lights regulate traffic in both directions.

A new alpine road completed in Romania: Transbucegi. This is the 3rd alpine road in Romania after Transfagarasan and Transalpina.

Strada Panoramica delle Vette (Friuli - Venezia Giulia, Italy)

The "Strada Panoramica delle Vette" (Peaks' scenic road) it's an almost 30km-long road that make a loop around the Carnic Alps near Ravascletto. It's very narrow and partly unpaved but during summer it's accessible by cars, motos and MTBs. It reach the elevation of 2250m (top of Mount Crostis) and it's the highest road in Friuli-Venezia Giulia. Part of this road was planned to be included in the 2011 Giro d'Italia but, after some expensive renovation works, the idea was halted because the road was too narrow for be accessed by emergency vehicles.
