Transport Minister Norbert Hofer (FPÖ) and Asfinag want a more positive trend on Thursday, taking into account their positive attitude to the balance of the Tempo 140 at the West Highway (A1). The average speed, depending on the weather and the time of the day, increased to four kilometers. At the same time, the increase in emissions is "low", – said Asfinag CEO Josef Fiala.
External experts were sent to the polls, Fia told a press conference in Vienna. After three and a half months of testing, the average speed between Norway's Melk and Oed cities increased from two to four kilometers on August 1, between three and four miles per hour between Heide and Sattland in Upper Austria. "That is, the actual change in speed is low," said Asfinag CEO. In addition, the second line is 95 km / h in 95 km / h and less than 95 km / 135 km / h, after adjusting the speed of the track at a speed of 146 km / h from 95% to 95% at the third track, "Fiala explained.
"What we did was a reality," said Hoffer. "We have mapped what people are doing, the speed is 130 km / h, slightly higher," he said. Critics fear that the average speed can rise to ten kilometers per hour. "Not all of this." As Hooper claims, there are not many racquets.
Emissions of pollutants have increased by one to two percent
The exhaust emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) and nitrogen oxides (NOx), respectively, increased by one or two percent when measured using ten test vehicles. "There are few changes in emissions due to low speeds," explained Fiala. Measurement stations at the Amstetten and Allhaming motorways do not have "significant changes" on solid particles.
According to the influence of noise, according to Tempo 140, Fiala still has "inconsistencies." Further studies are required. "We are currently working on the measurement results of more than 0.6 decibels," said Asfinag CEO. The number of traumatic injuries ranging from 17 to six in Austria's Lower Austria test tracks decreased compared to the previous two years but was the same in Upper Austria. None of the casualties is related to the speeding up, Fiala said.
Planned additional test tracks
Hofer has announced the search for traces of Tempo 140 in the coming months. He had to know, for example: "What do you say about a two-lane and four-lane route?" Hoffer still could not identify the actual sites.
Criticism of the Austrian (VCÖ) movement club came. "Tempo 140 increases air emissions but requires a significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions to achieve climate change," said VCÖ expert Markus Ganserer. One percent of the CO2 and two percent of the NOx are too much of the need for Austria to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by one third. Each 20-driver shows faster than 146 km / h, indicating that "speeds on the highways need speed control."
