S3 E65, Poland

Second carriageway of S3 (Poland's westernmost N-S motorway), section Sulechów - Zielona Góra North is opening today.
The section is 13.4 km long, but it includes a bridge on Odra river, second carriageway of which will be completed in 2019 - it means that 1 km of road still remains in half-profile.
Construction took 30 months.

Map: http://www.openstreetmap.org/directi...2.0151/15.6236

Edit: today was the lame "official" opening () by people that had nothing to do with this road, full 2x2 profile should be available tomorrow.

Argentina autovia R-36, between Cordoba and Rio Cuarto 200km

QUOTE=Nacho_91;143013221]Desde hoy, es todo autovía entre Córdoba y Río Cuarto

Se habilita la ruta 36 completa, con cuatro carriles en sus 200 kilómetros de extensión. Faltan algunas obras de iluminación en los cruces y resta definir si habrá retoques en los peajes.

Cinco años después del inicio de la obra, y 12 años después del primer anuncio, finalmente los 200 kilómetros de la ruta nacional 36 que separan a las dos más grandes ciudades cordobesas se pueden transitar en forma integral, desde hoy, como una autovía de cuatro carriles de circulación.

Bekasi-Cawang-Kampung Melayu Expressway Sections 1b and 1c, Jakarta and Bekasi, West Java, Indonesia

3 November 2017



The Becakayu expressway--after delayed for about 19 years--was inaugurated by HE President Joko Widodo as he signed the plaque and--together with Ministers for Public Works and Public Housing, State Owned Enterprises, Transport (cmiiw)--pressed the "inauguration siren trigger"--a procession typical for infrastructure projects inaugurations in Indonesia today.

Also in the inauguration are the governor of the Jakarta Special Capital Region Anies Baswedan, vice governor of West Java Deddy Mizwar, and some executives from Waskita Karya, a mostly state owned construction company (listed as IDX:WSKT in 2012) which subsidiary Waskita Toll Road's subsidiary Kresna Kusuma Dyandra Marga owned the expressway's operation concessionare for 45 years.

The whole expressway--originally initiated by Tommy Suharto--would be complete by 2021.
