TOLL FEES 2015
All motorways and expressways in Austria are subject to a toll (in Vorarlberg the A14 and S16).
All vehicles up to 3.5t maximum loaded weight (passenger cars, motor cycles and light trailers) require a toll sticker. The validity period depends on the type of sticker, there is e.g. a
10-day toll sticker for passenger vehicles € 8,70, motorcycles € 5,00;
2-month toll sticker for passenger vehicles € 25.30, motor cycles € 12,70.
Toll stickers on sale at the motoring clubs, toll stations, petrol stations (in particular in vicinity to the border, motor ways and ramps).
A special toll is collected on some road sections e.g. for the S16, the Arlberg road tunnel between Langen am Arlberg and St. Anton am Arlberg/Tirol for vehicles up to a maximum loaded weight of 3.5t: single fare € 9,–. Vehicles of over 3.5t maximum loaded weight are tolled electronically by means of the GO box according to axle number and EURO emission class.
Special Toll Roads:
S16/Arlberg road tunnel: Information on www.asfinag.at
Silvretta-Hochalpenstrasse and Kopserstrasse (negotiable in summer only): Information on www.silvretta-bielerhoehe.at
Closure of the Arlberg Road Tunnel from 21 April to 14 November 2015
The Arlberg Road Tunnel on the S 16 Arlberg expressway between Tyrol and Vorarlberg will be closed to all traffic in both directions from 21 April to 14 November 2015. The reason: Extensive refurbishment measures and the installation of additional evacuation routes for more safety. However, ASFINAG has worked with the authorities, emergency services and the provinces of Vorarlberg and Tyrol in advance of the closure to put measures in place that allow traffic to flow via alternative routes during this period with the fewest possible problems.
These alternative routes lead via the Arlberg Pass road (B 197/L 197).

Cycling Ban on the Arlberg Pass
Starting Monday 13 July 2015 – Bike Shuttle Service in Operation
With the S 16 Arlberg road tunnel being shut due to construction works, road traffic has been diverted to the Arlberg pass road since 21 April 2015. In view of the high volume of traffic expected during the peak travel season, the district authority Bludenz has imposed a cycling ban on the L 197 between the Langen railroad station and the top of the pass in St. Christoph.
This ban is in force from 13 July to 30 September 2015 and applies only to cyclists in uphill direction. A bike shuttle service for cyclists is being installed.
