Can someone please post pics of austrian highways, i could not find any topic with Austrian motorways here, why is that? I want see some Austrian motorways, Tunnels and also some great mountain pictures.
Ok, now I remembered that you'd said you'd missed signs for Wien-West and Wien-Süd; actually I agree with you on that.^^Both of you are probably correct. It just see it from another perspective as I am living far out in the west, so for me, the S1 actually is the motorway of choice towards A4.
But did it stay S33 (Schnellstraße, so "only" its profile became Autobahn-like, or it's now also officially an Autobahn)?The 130km/h limit is on S33 that was upgraded to A-standard only recently. From what I can see, it's close to the town of Krems.
As I said, you can't compare each Schnellstraße to all others.
I really get annoyed when driving on austrian motorways with the american concrete crashbarriers, they would look so much better without concrete.Modern expressway, with all the electronic portals. I'm surprised at how many concrete expressways/motorways there are in Austria. And I had no idea the interchange with the A2 was in tunnel, that always looked cool to me. And Vienna's skyline looks impressive from it! I wonder what the AADT is, it's quite a relief from going via A23.
Btw, that's an impressive future motorway/expressway network for Vienna! And could you tell me which expressway is depicted on the pic with a speed limit of 130 km/h? I always thought the max. on expressways was 100 km/h!
