An extension of the A5 from Schrick to Poysbrunn was completed in December 2017. The traffic release took place on 8 December 2017[1]. At a later stage, it is planned to extend the A5 all the way to the Czech border, where it will continue as the Czech D52, forming a continuous motorway link between Vienna and Brno.[1]
