Re: A1 Autobahn will be widened, 4 to 6 lanes

Wonderful news on the radio today, a part of the Zurich to Bern Autobahn is to be widened! Planning can now go ahead, and a new bridge is required over the river Aare, the CHF 800 million has been approved.

Then came the sting: if everything goes OK, they hope to open the widened section, ONLY 22 kms from Härkingen (Junction to Basel) to Luterbach (Junction to Solothurn)
Well that's on top of the three lane section already in place between Zofingen and Harkingen, which was the main bottleneck, being a combination of all Bern<=>Zurich A1 and all Basel<=>Gotthard A2 traffic. And one or two other stretches already widened, like closer to Bern, from Wankdorf, and ISTR around the Solothurn exit as well. So it's not the only bit, but more of a joining up of the existing bits.
