The Arlberg Tunnel was driven in the Austrian Alps in 1978. Over the years the tunnel has remained one of the world’s leaders in scale and equipment. It’s Austrian longest road tunnel with a length of 10240 metres whose construction has been lasting more than four years. The tunnel has no any original design, technical equipment of high quality is its main distinctive feature.
There are more than forty cameras for traffic monitoring inside the tunnel in order to ensure maximum safety of the drivers. So exceeding speed limits or making dangerous manoeuvers on the road is just useless, it will definitely be fixed. The Arlberg tunnel is a Toll Road. It costs about 9 euros. Tolls for both directions are collected at the exits, which makes the payment process simple and convenient.
Arlberg Road Tunnel is one of the outstanding attractions of the country. It is used by over 18 million people annually. The Arlberg road tunnel and the Arlberg railway tunnel is one single complex, though the railway tunnel was built much earlier, in the late 19th century. The tunnels are interconnected by lots of cross-connections, the minimum distance between them is 150 metres. Next - Tunel De Guadarrama
