Someone local can correct me, but I think that's less a case of an abandoned (or "never completed") road than a "not yet completed" road. I-22's fairly new - not marked yet as far as I know - and that interchange with 65 will be one of the last pieces. I assume the intent is to finish it sooner rather than later.

In my hometown an abandonned railway bridge was converted recently into a road bridge, so it added a 5th road bridge over the river in my hometown. It was quite convenient for the authorities to already have a bridge at their disposal without having to build it. I should take a picture next time I'm there.

Lika county, Croatia:
During the 70's, a highway from Zagreb to Split (via Bihać) was planned (it was called "Savkin autoput" after Savka Dabčević Kučar, president of the Central commitee of the communist union of Croatia) and construction started on section between Tiškovac and Kaldrma. But those were times when it wasn't politically desirable to connect 2 biggest cities in Croatia as part of Yugoslavia, so suddenly all the works had been stopped. The facts about the construction and withdrawal of the money are vaguely known.

Today there is some 10 km long section of macadam road which follows the CRO-BIH border (there's also an abandoned railroad), few tunnel portals and water canals can be seen.

Never completed? It's actively under construction and may be scheduled to open this fall (IMHO, likelier fall 2012).

There are also visible abandoned grades, one running eastward from the A7/A44 interchange at Kassel:
http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&ll=5...43945&t=k&z=15
(That's Vollmarshausen at the upper left)
Is this grade being used to complete the A44 to the A4 at Wommen?

Also, along the A2 just southeast of Hamm:
http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&ll=5...43945&t=k&z=15
The never-completed grade is traceable for several km to the east-southeast. Where was this one planned to go?

Hi Mike!

I didn't know the anything about I-22 construction works. I was just looking on google maps and there it looks like I-22 stops few hundred meters before I-65, without any construction works to be seen.

We don't have such things in the Netherlands. The Dutch public workers have an obsession for managing this country into the most extreme details, so unused stuff is likely to be demolished pretty fast.

The A4232 in Cardiff Bay stops abruptly at the roundabout in the bottom left after emerging from the Bute tunnel. There's been plans to extend the link though the random looking roundabout on the right, through the docks and up to meet the A48 but nothing ever seems to materialize.



The A4174 Ring Road in Bristol is bizarre. For a long time the only complete sections were from the future MoD site to the M32 and a little towards Downend. There was also this dual carriageway section even with a grade separated junction, whcih just runs into a roundabout and a single road to a council estate and industrial park.



You can see where this section was originally intended to go. The green space now has a nursing home built on top.



Let's look at the awful general picture of the "Ring" road. Yellow is the oldest original built section, probably made at the same time as the council estates. Most of the Red section was built in the early 00's. The two cant be linked with upgrading existing roads because of the density of housing and development. This makes the Bath Road (the green A road linking the two halves) an absolute nightmare for traffic.

Dotted Blue is proposed extensions of the Ring road. They either run through fields (pissing off treehuggers) or through dense housing. In an ideal world the full ring road would link together the airport, Long Ashton and Brislington Park & Rides, the M32, A38, A4, A37, Gloucester Road and MoD. But with Bristol's incompetent city council I bet this pathetic "quarter-ring" road will be what we're left with.

Well, the most recent 'completion' on I-22 had the section up to the very last crossroad interchange before I-65 opening a couple of years ago. I'm not sure why that last part was put off until now, but it was likely related to funding.
