Construction of the highway started in 1996.

  • 3 km in operation

History[edit]

The connecting motorway on the Austrian side, Nordost Autobahn A6 was opened on 19 November 2007. The highway connects the border with Slovakia to the Ost Autobahn A4. Its opening connected the country of Slovakia to the European highway network, until 2007 Slovakia was connected only through the Czech Republic and Hungary.[1]
