Re: [CH] Zwitserland - Switzerland - Schweiz

Gaat de prijs van het tolvignet mogelijk alsnog omhoog? It is not planned, at the moment. But things might change when it will be possible also to buy electronic stickers, with cameras reading plates on the roads to check it (physical sticker should still be available, though). Great St. Bernard tu...

Re: [CH][A004] A4 Schaffhausen - Zürich - Altdorf

I find a succession of more tunnels more annoying than a single tunnel, but it might be just my opinion.

Also it is sad that Sisikoner tunnel ends here rather than near the Flüeler tunnel so as to have a second road along all the Axen.

Re: [I][A027] Autostrada d'Alemagna

The worst spot is the town of Longarone, the only one between the end of A27 and the beginning of the fast 1x2 to Pieve/Tai di Cadore. The other problem is Cortina itself, most skiers want to go skiing with their car, which clogs up the town on peak days*. Also because there aren't many parking plac...

Because Schaffhausen canton was not able to lobby strong enough to keep it in the national network? It is stranger that A4 didn't go to Thayingen from the beginning, as it seems a more improtant route to Germany than the one to Bargen. Maybe at the time A81 via Singen didn't exist and the main Züric...

Re: [CH] Kleine projecten in Zwitserland

A 1.5 km tunnel will be built on H13 just after the existin Ascona tunnel, to replace a narrow section of road (less than two lanes wide) where bigger vehicles have problems to cross each other. This is a cantonal project, as the "new" federal "road 13" (which includes A13 and conventional roads) en...

On local media the lengthening of the A24* is rarely heard. On the other side of the border there is the project to lengthen the A60/SS712**, with a plan do build the missing section***, which is part of the Pedemontana motorways.

Het klinkt trouwens dat met de overkapping bij Airolo, de Gotthardtunnel feitelijk 1 kilometer langer wordt.

Re: [CH] Zwitserland - Switzerland - Schweiz

The idea to use the same number for unconnected roads is confusing, especcially for the two A23, but also A20 and partly A2. Unless they decide to number "23" also the conventional road between the two A23 autostrasse sections, although this is again a little confusing as H23 is a totally different ...

There are a lot of people going there, and there is always queue (I pass there at least once a year). Also, it is a side road, with simply no place to put much cars at the end of it. Also buses are frequent and full. And that even if there are other nice places nearby. On SS52 in Innichen I noticed ...

De Oberalppass gaat dan al wel best vlot. Drie weken geleden ging ik nog met de ski's de pas over.

(sorry for the short off-topic...) Zelf heb ik de officiële federale status van het Reto-Romaans nooit zo begrepen. Romansh became a national language between the two WW (exactly in 1938, by decision of 92% of voters), during the rise of European nationalisms. In that time nazism and fascism conside...

As I have already said, it is planned to cover the A2 in Airolo ( roughly there ) mainly to store the spoil from the second Gotthard tunnel, with noise protection and more space for the village as a side effect. Now there is another proposal to build three tunnels (around 300, 800 and 1000 m long) b...

For trucks toll is more important than price, so between Fréjus and Ventimiglia a truck will choose the latter because it is cheaper, if the time is not much higher. Milano-Barcelona via Ventimiglia is slightly faster than via Fréjus, Milano-Lyon is similar (+/- 10 km). After the Mont Blanc fire thi...

The opening of the second tube may be in 2021. Nearly 7 years after the breakthrough...

Re: [I][A001] Milano - Napoli (Autostrada del Sole)

In one of the tunnels (I think "Sparvo") the rock tended to collapse, so they built an additional and stronger lining in that section of tunnel, reducing its width (and height). To use the third lane for traffic they would have to rebuild entirely that section, by reinforcing the tunnel structure wi...

Curiously, the main promoter of the road conversion of the Maurice Lemaire tunnel, the one that gave his name to the tunnel, was the general director of the French state railways. In the 1930s the Genova-La Spezia railway was rebuilt with two tracks on a new alignment, this lead to the conversion of...

As far I remember, a fire in the Simplon rail tunnel in 2011 started because the curtain of a semitrailer detached and touched the overhead line. And also this accident was caused by a curtain of a semitrailer, but in a different way.

The capacity of the Eurotunnel with the existing infrastructure and rolling stock should be 7 freight and 4 passenger shuttles per hour and direction, or 224 trucks and 576 cars. To increase that capacity more trains would be needed, and the terminals would likely have to be enlarged. If this was do...

Re: [D][DK] E47 Fehmarnbelttunnel

Ik betwijfel of er wel zoveel veerdiensten over het kanaal zouden gaan als er een wegtunnel zou liggen. De capaciteit van een 2x2 tunnel is veel groter dan van een autotrein. The capacity of the Eurotunnel shuttles is obviously lower than those of a 4-lane motorway, but let's take a look. Knowing t...

In case of a serious accident the other traffic tube would be closed, and used by rescue vehicles (including buses to bring out people, if necessary). The central tube could be used as a waiting area. However, the main reason why it will not be enlarged is not because it is needed for safety (even i...

The second tube will be completely new, and the existing small safety tube will remain as it is. However, the second road tube will use the existing portals, so the end parts of the safety tube will be enlarged, and the full profile second tube will diverge from the safety tube. So during the constr...
