A little bit off-topic:

Is there still money left for new infrastructure in Spain nowadays? I recently heard that some Spanish drivers are not willing to pay for the motorways anymore, like in Greece, because the prices are rising quickly.

Chris, referring to the link you provided, it appears the Yamuna Expressway actually connects the City of Greater Noida to the City of Agra.

Looking at Google Earth, Greater Noida, is in turn connected to the City of Noida via, another much older expressway, called the Noida - Greater Noida Expressway.

Please verify and let me know.

Also, can you post any pictures of the new S14 Bypass (Poland), the new Romanian motorways, Autopista del Coral (Dominican Republic), Yamuna Expressway (India) etc?

Highway 2000 May Pen Leg opened



August 15, 2012

This new 10.5 kilometre stretch of Highway 2000 east-west, is expected to cut the travel time from Sandy Bay to May Pen by at least two thirds from the current 18 minutes to only six minutes driving at the permitted speed, the administrators said .

The route the Bucharest-Ploiesti motorway took is pretty crazy! It seems much longer than the original road.
