A466, France

4 July 2015

The A466 opens to traffic today. It is a 4 kilometer toll road that links A6 and A46 north of Lyon. It will carry traffic from A89 towards the Alps, so traffic doesn't have to drive through Lyon. The toll road is operated by APRR. It has no exits between A6 and A46.

Strada a Mare Guido Rossa, Genoa, Italy

7 February 2015

An old opening that we forget to include. I added it to make MichiH's list exhaustive.

A 1,6 km 3x2 urban expressway opened to traffic in Genoa between the suburbs of Sampierdarena and Cornigliano. It runs along the harbour and includes a bridge over Polcevera river.
Works started in February 2011.
It is a "municipal road", so it has no number, just the street name.
