Both pictures come from Czech Republic (check hectometric(?) posts). The one on the first picture reminds me older bit of A11, however, similar landscape could have been found anywhere in CS.

Back from a job interview in Turin (back and forth, A21 all the way).

I got the job. Not sure when I start, though.

Congratulations and good luck at your new job (whenever you start). In what field is the job?

I'm currently unemployed and looking for a new job

Research in thermodynamics. The group is trying to re-define the kelvin unit of temperature with greater precision than currently available.

Congrats for the job!

According to Google, the A21 is 34km longer than the A4 but probably it's less congested during rush hour, because it avoid Milan, isn't it?
However, being longer is also a little bit more expensive (19,10€ vs 21,40€ one way).

A21 can be absolutely empty, but in workdays it has a strong truck traffic. It always flows freely, but be prepared to meet many trucks passing each other at 80.

Still better than crossing Mian, A4 is completely stuck in rush hour.

It also depends a lot on which part of Turin you must reach. Unless I have to go to its northern part, I'd use A21.

I always use A21 when travelling from Turin to Brenner. Like it better than A4 but overtaking lorries on that stretch are annoying.

yeah, truck traffic can be quite annoying at A21, but it is mostly fluid, i haven't experienced some serious crowds there, speeds were always above 100

Research facility is located near Mirafiori Fiat factory, so Turin south. But I'd probably take A21 even if I had to go to Turin north... I'd avoid Milan anytime, I found congestion on A4 in Milan always, one time at 1.30 am Sunday...

Mmm, I spent 18,70€ for the whole A21, from Brescia Centro to Turin Villanova.

A21 got a bit cheaper than A4 in last years. A21 is a pleasure to drive on weekends when there is much less truck traffic.

I calculated Brescia - Piacenza and Piacenza - Turin separately and summed them together because the Autostrade website don't allow to calculate Brescia - Turin via A21. Probably there's an extra fee to those exiting at Piacenza.

Turin - Brenner via A21 has always cost me about 26€ in a van...

If you calculate between "Brescia Centro" and "Villanova", autostrade.it gives the correct toll:

Sure, go on. The day you want to measure your temperature with microkelvin precision, you'll thank me.

1 Celsius degree precision is enough for me right now.
