|Expressway S31 in Austria|
|Overall length:||50.790 km|
|S 31 at Neutal|
The Burgenland Schnellstraße S 31 is an expressway in Austria that runs north-south through Burgenland . The S 31 leads from Eisenstadt -Ost to Oberpullendorf -Süd and is subject to a vignette or toll .
The S 31 is signposted between Eisenstadt- Süd and the Mattersburg junction as a motorway in accordance with the road traffic regulations. The further stretch to Oberpullendorf -Nord was built as a four-lane road with no structural center separation and no hard shoulder, as well as in places with narrower overtaking lanes. The two ends of the expressway between Eisenstadt-Ost and -Süd and between Oberpullendorf-Nord and -Süd are designed as conventional country roads with one lane in each direction.
Originally the S 31 was only planned from the Mattersburg junction to Oberpullendorf. The remainder of today's S 31 should run as Mattersburger Schnellstraße S 4 to the border to Bratislava . Today the S 4 coming from Wiener Neustadt ends at the Mattersburg junction.
In 1976 the first section of the Burgenland expressway between Eisenstadt-Süd and the Eisenstadt junction was opened. In the following years, extensions to the south were gradually made. The last section between Neutal and Oberpullendorf-Süd was opened on August 20, 2004.

Between 2018 and the end of 2021, between the Mattersburg junction and the Weppersdorf / St. Martin a middle separation can be established. In preparation for the separation of the carriageway, the general renovation of the valley crossings from Forchtenstein to Sieggraben is taking place . On March 18, 2019, the security expansion between the Mattersburg junction and the Weppersdorf / St. Martin and should be completed by 2025.
The first part of the security expansion between the Mattersburg junction and the Forchtenstein junction was completed in December 2019 and opened to traffic.
In the North
The start of construction to extend the S 31 from the Eisenstadt-Ost junction around ten kilometers north to Schützen am Gebirge should have started in 2010. Instead, an expressway project was removed from the Federal Road Act for the first time, and the Schützen am Gebirge bypass was implemented as a small-scale state road project.
In the south
An extension from Oberpullendorf-Süd to Günser Straße B 61 near Unterpullendorf and subsequently to the Hungarian border near Rattersdorf was also planned . In November 2010 it became known that this project, too, would not be implemented as an expressway but as a state road with the financial contribution of the federal government. The section from Oberpullendorf / Steinberg-Dörfl and Rattersdorf was built as Pullendorfer Straße B 61a and opened to traffic on July 17, 2017. The last kilometer to the Hungarian border is currently in the construction phase, and construction should be completed in December 2019.
