The photos was "touched up" (modified), because the signs says: "decade of the truck driver" maybe this image was used as cover of a pamplet, or some as similar

Just around Wien (like parts of S1 and A5 and completed A6), also some tunnels got another tube, which is costly enough, and some widenings.

google translated
Quote:
Foreign route is created in the 1970s colloquial name for the former European Route 5 (E5) between Munich and Istanbul respectively Thessaloniki . These were the preferred road trip route from South-East European migrant workers in their home countries to holiday periods.

On this route attended from about 1970 foreign flows mainly at the start of the summer holidays, Christmas and Easter for chaos especially on the Austrian and Yugoslav roads that were not designed for the transit time of each around two million people within a few days. The guest workers route led through many villages and towns close; bypasses and motorway expansion were mostly still in the planning stage. For many years, recorded the track enormous traffic jams and high accident victims.

One of the most dangerous parts

Leoben - Asutria



For every accident victim at the Leoben bypass a cross was erected at the accident site - this should serve as a warrning to drivers. The photos date from the year 1970.

As Türkan Kanbicak for the first time made ​​the trip from Fulda to Istanbul with his family in 1972, the car ride was only alternative. He recalled with a laugh: "The whole route was full of Turks - no one knew the way."
