I just noticed that despite the shameful history of this motorway, Visp Ost junction only has 3 ramps (there is no entrance towards the west): https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=17/46.29695/7.92870

However it should be said that there isn't much space for such a ramp there, it would have had to be in tunnel or on a bridge over the Rhône and the railway.

Visp Süd can be reasonably used to access Visp only on one out of four directions (east to Visp), but I already knew that, and that's not much of a problem.

The Vispertal tunnel (the western tube of the western A9 tunnel + the branch to the Vispa valley) should reopen in 2024, but I think it should reopen before the opening of the other tube and the connection to the A9.

Next year should open the Turtmann-Visp section, but likely without the Riedberg tunnel (the short tunnel near Gampel-Steg railway station).

De bypass van Visp wordt in de zomer van 2022 richting westen geopend (de noordbuis). De andere richting volgt pas 2024-2025.

Ook geleerd dat 'Viège' het Franse exoniem voor Visp is.

The connection to the old road towards the west should be quite indirect:

A temporary setup with a more direct connection and bidirectional traffic in the north tunnel would have been more useful, but I know that the A9 history is just ridiculous.
