Thanks . Are all projects already u/c or are there also projects not yet u/c in your list? Are all projects of type "12" or are there also some "2" projects?

Yes these are all under construction, but some segments may have been stopped or delayed, so not all projected opening dates are reliable.

To be opened in February 2014?
Yes, but again, it is not sure how reliable these opening dates are. Maybe Spanish forumers could clarify some of these dates.

Quote:

It could open in phases from 2014 to 2016, but it is unclear which segment will open when.

Quote:

As far as I can tell it varies. The highly erratic pattern of Fomento to cancel or award new contracts for existing projects is a problem. Sometimes they have a project tendered, but then cancel the project due to lack of money. This occurred extensively in 2010-2012, making earlier projected opening dates (years) unclear.

I'd better ask in the Spanish subforum. So far, about E07 (A-23) I know the sections are as follow:
Nueno-Isuela gorge: Southbound is open (Currently two way road signed as N-330), Northbound is under reconstruction.
Isuela gorge-Arguis: Started but halted.
Arguis-Monrepos pass: Southbound tunnel open (Currently two way, signed as N-330), Northbound under reconstruction
Monrepos pass-Caldearenas: U/C
Caldearenas-Lanave: U/C
Lanave-Jabarrella reservoir: Still at planning stages AFAIK.
Jabarrella reservoir-Sabinanigo South: Actually works started on this section, but the following morning they got stopped due to builder going bankrupt.
Sabinanigo South-East: U/C
Sabinanigo East-West: Still at planning stages.
Sabinanigo West-Jaca East: Open.
Jaca East-West: Still at planning stages. This is notable as it will change from A-23 to A-21 halfway through.

The last section of A-22 is still at planning stages.

I meant Spanish forum. You can ask in this thread, a general thread about roads and motorways. Don't be worried about asking in English, you're welcome.

That figure include the whole Sabinanigo bypass, which is quite lenghty (In fact coming from the South the motorway doesn't start before Sabinanigo, but after you have bypassed that town). So the figure for Lanave-Caldearenas is correct. That section is quite weird: Northbound, the motorway will use a new roadway, while southbound it will go on the current road, which is much longer.

A-2: Sils - Caldes de Malavella: Works started in 2008 or 2009 but were stopped due to the crisis. Contract to finish the works was awarded on 24/10/2012 and it is under construction, expected opening this year.

http://www.abc.es/agencias/noticia.asp?noticia=1279139 (in Spanish, it says the section is 6,6 km long and its cost is of 32,4 million).

Works started but then they were stopped and have not been resumed between Torreperogil and Villanueva del Arzobispo. Expected opening of Linares - Ibros (11,6 km) and beda - Torreperogil (16,3 km) is 2015.

Resume? So the works were already started and are suspended now?

Yes, you can see it in Google Maps, works started in the Guadalquivir tunnels section but they were later suspended. In fact, works also started on the section between A-49 and the Guadalquivir tunnels, but they were also suspended.

The next section of SE-40 that will be opened is between A-376 and A-4, but that won't happen until 2017. This article published 2 weeks ago might help you:

http://www.diariodesevilla.es/articl...utovia/se.html

It says that the contract to resume the works of the section between A-376 and A-4 (plus another section until the eastern entrance of the river tunnels to grant access to the harbor) will be awarded in June and then the works will last for 3 years and 4 months. It has a map explaining the status of all the sections of SE-40 (green = in service; dotted green = open for bidding; red = works suspended; dotted red = sections that have not been started)

Turkey:

O33- Istanbul-Izmir




Quote:
The starting point of the Project is at Gebze and the Motorway will pass İzmit bay which is located between Dilovası and Hersek through a Suspension Bridge of about 3 km in length, will extend to Orhangazi and Gemlik and be connected to existing Bursa Ring road at Ovaaka interchange. When the Project is completed, İzmit Bay Crossing Bridge will be one of the longest bridges in the world. The new motorway to be constructed will re-start from (Bursa Karacabey) Interchange of the existing Bursa Ring Road, pass through north of Susurluk and reach to Balıkesir. Then it will continue to the south at the west of Balıkesir, pass closer to Savaştepe, Soma, Kırkağa districts, extend to the west near Turgutlu, continue in parallel to İzmir-Uşak State Highway and be connected to Anadolu High School Interchange on İzmir Ring Road.

The Project shall be realized in two phases in line with construction and financing program. In respect to responsibilities for construction works, it has been divided into 7 separate sections, namely; Gebze-Orhangazi, Orhangazi-Bursa, Bursa-Susurluk, Susurluk-Balıkesir, Balıkesir-Kırkağa, Kırkağa-Manisa and Manisa-İzmir, and the construction programme is staged into 2 phases as stated below.

Phase I: is between Gebze and İznik Southern Interchange (Km:58+300) which Gebze-Orhangazi (Section 1) and 9 km from Orhangazi to İznik Southern Interchange,

Phase II: is between İznik Southern Interchange and İzmir and consists of sections İznik Southern Interchange-Bursa, Bursa-Susurluk, Susurluk-Balıkesir, Balıkesir-Kırkağa, Kırkağa-Manisa and Manisa-İzmir.

It is targeted to complete Phase I in 2015 and Phase II within 7 years Construction Period defined in the Implementation Contract.

Following the works commenced after signature of the contract mainly Design, Mobilization and preliminary with equity support of the sponsors, the loan agreements were executed and works were accelerated by 15 March 2013 as the day of the Contract came into effect.

Based on the proposal submitted to KGM, the project is 421 km in length in total, consisting of 377 km motorway and 44 km approach roads. As the bidding scope of the Project, it shall be constructed a Suspension Bridge, Southern Approach Viaduct, 29 viaducts in total 18.212 m long, 2 Tunnels in total 5.142 m long, 199 bridges, 20 Toll Collection areas, 25 Interchanges, 6 Motorway Maintenance and Operation Centers, 2 Tunnel Maintenance and Operation Centers, 18 double sided Service Areas (2 of them are Type and 4 Type B, 5 Type C and 7 Type D).

However, the Project has been re-designed as total 427 km length consisting of 384 km motorway and 43 km connection roads in line with the additional design works arising out of necessity due to soil instability problems encountered along the route. The project data in numbers for the design works in progress are as follows.:

Route Length (to be constructed): 384 km
Bursa Ring Road (not included in construction scope and open to traffic): 22 km
Total Main Body: 406 km
Connection Roads: 43 km
Intersection Branches: 65 km
Existing Motorway, State or Province Highway Arrangement: 31 km
Side Roads: 136 km
