Switzerland - Approaching Gothard Tunnel

Ok, it wasn't August - it was September 2003 and a job to Palermo. If you have never driven Switzerland you must ! It doesn't take long as its relatively small, the tolls are steep but the views are breathtaking - especially at night. Like being in a Plane... I have a run to Lucca in Northern Italy in September via the Mont Blanc so will get some more pics !

The Alpine pass route through Switzerland is a delightful drive - here on the A4 approaching the A2 interchange near Altdorf.

CH 4 Schaffhausen

This is technically a single-carriageway expressway (vignette not theoretically required) north of Schaffhausen, just into Switzerland from Germany. Single-carriageway motorways are commonplace too.

CH 4 Zurich - 12JUL06

Route 4 in Zurich, compete with horizontal traffic lights (a good idea, in my view, alongside gantry signs).

A typical Swiss motorway enters a tunnel... and it qualifies for brown signs.
