BR-448, Porto Alegre area, Brazil

December 20, 2013

The 2x3 lane, 22.3 km long BR-448 western bypass for the northern section of Porto Alegre metro area (as 2012, 4,213,384 inhabitants, 1,589,440 cars/SUVs). It cost R$ 1.3 billion (US$ 560 million) and might be extended 10km northwards up to Estância Velha (Novo Hamburgo area).

This road, built from scratch over wetlands will offer a relief to BR-116, the busiest road of Southern Brazil, which cuts in half all the cities in northern Porto Alegre metro area.

For more info, charts, pics and videos, Brazilian highway thread. I guess it's everybody's favourite project there.

23 December 2013

Today 2 motorway sectors are opening in Romania:

A1 Lugoj - Deva, lot 1 (27.5 km - but 10 will not be used, although they are completed, until the next motorway section will be completed)
A6 from A1 interchange to Lugoj bypass (11.4 km) - it's the first sector of A6 motorway in Romania

Total: 17+11 = 28 km of new motorway. Google maps has already updated this new motorway section.

Dali--Lijiang Expressway is scheduled to be open to traffic on Dec 30 after four years’ construction.

After the construction completion, drivers shall pay tolls in following 30 years which are higher than toll fees paid on Kunming--Dali Expressway, said the road construction directorate.

The expressway is 257 kilometers long. Length of tunnels on the expressway covers nearly 30 percent of its total length. Some tunnels, such as Shuanglong Tunnel, are more than 3,000 meters long. And Baiyu Bridge is the highest bridge connecting the two tourist destinations.

Riding on the road is quite comfortable for both drivers and travelers since vertical height within every 100 meters is lower than 3 meters.

In chilly winter, some sections of the road may be icy, such as the 6-kilometer-long section from Wase to Shuanglang. It is not only a long and steep downgrade section,but also is designed with a viewing deck of Er’hai Lake nearby. Some tourists may park cars beside the road and cross the expressway to view the scenery of the lake on the deck.

As trucks may spay water when running down the slope, the road is likely to be icy when weather temperature drops. Drivers and travelers should pay attention to this section to keep safety and security.

The speed limit for most vehicles is below 100 Km/hr, and for some trucks is below 80 Km/hr.
