Transportation

The most important transportation route in South Tyrol is the Brenner Highway. It connects northern Italy with Austria and southern Germany. Other important routes include the expressway between Bolzano and Merano as well as the Vinschgau and Puster Valley federal highway. A high fluctuation of tourists often leads to increased traffic on Saturdays during the holiday months.

For this reason, there are numerous restrictions for heavy-load transport imposed to alleviate the traffic situation, particularly on the A22 and the federal highways.

The entire Italian road network prohibits trucks over 7.5 tons and has extensive restrictions for heavy-load transport.
