EX-A1, Spain

23 October 2012

A 9.9 kilometer section of the EX-A1 opened to traffic between El Batán and Coria in Extremadura, west of Plasencia. This motorway was a missing link and completes EX-A1 between Navalmoral de la Mata and Moraleja.

The community government also announced the extension to Portugal will be scrapped for the moment.

EX-A1 is one of the longest community motorways in Spain. It stretches for nearly 100 kilometers.

SH 130 Toll, Texas, USA

October 24, 2012

A 41-mile stretch of new toll road opens in Texas. It's State Highway 130 and runs from SH 45 south of Austin tot I-10 near Seguin, providing a long-distance bypass of the Austin metropolitan area. It's also the fastest road in the United States, with an 85 mph speed limit.

This completes SH 130 after the first section opened in 2006. The entire route is 91 miles long.

Some parts of it are quite winding for 85 mph.

The closing link of Sugarloaf Parkway linking GA 20 and GA 316 in Gwinnett County, GA opened on July 2, but eastbound only. I only discovered this when I Googled a route from my house to Charleston, SC. OT: Google Maps routed me through Greenville, SC. The route I'll be taking is supposedly two minutes longer but 43 miles shorter and avoids a $1.50 toll.

A-60, Spain

October 30, 2012

A 7.3 kilometer section of A-60 opened to traffic near the city of León, Spain. It connects Puente Villarente with LE-30 near León and will relieve the N-601 of traffic, which carries 18.000 vehicles per day. This is the first real part of A-60 in Spain, although a single interchange was already open in Zaratán, a suburb of Valladolid.

SH 130 Toll, Texas

The curves are gentle enough to allow for a speed limit of 85 mph. A much greater, and apparently unforeseen, danger to drivers on SH 130 are groups of feral hogs which wander across the road. These are not true wild pigs, but escapees (or their descendents) from piggeries in the area. There have been some very messy accidents already. Fencing is incomplete, inadequate, and no obstacle to a determined hog.
