Autopista México - Puebla

They inaugurated an expanded stretch of the Autopista México - Puebla yesterday. At first I thought it was the second level through Puebla, but it appears to be a 14 kilometer segment that has been 12-laned from Mexico City to Ixtapaluca.

The stretch from Eje 8 to Circuito Exterior Mexiquense has been expanded to 2x4 lanes for through traffic and 2x2 frontage roads / lateral lanes for local traffic. The frontage roads appears to be partially elevated.

Google Earth from January / February 2016:

Google Maps has a very accurate and well updated representation of all the "autopistas" and "supercarreteras"

It was only visible to you because the image was in your browser's cache. You can view the image full-size on this forum once you've opened the link.

Now it is visible,

Yep, that map is fairly accurate, is just a little outdated because it lacks some bypasses and highways upgrades but nothing to worry.

Yellow ones are "autopistas". All of them are A-4 grade, and all of them have at least 4 lanes; as you approach to Mexico City they widen up to 12 lanes. They are in very good shape and can be compared with the American standard. The only drawback is that all of them are toll roads.

Thanks, I saw the Pan American highway was passing through San Antonio while it could also enter Mexico directly from El Paso. I was curious to know the longest distance of continuous dual carriageway along the Pan America route. If I am not mistaken this is Beaverlodge (Canada)- Arriaga (Mexico), which is around 6750km.

Puebla

The second level of the autopista through Puebla is being inaugurated at this moment. It is a 13.3 kilometer long elevated highway on top of the existing autopista through the city.

Morelia

The second stage of the bypass of Morelia, known as the Macrolibramiento de Morelia and Autopista Cuitzeo-Pátzcuaro is being opened as this is posted.

There is even a livestream of the opening ceremony.

Neat. I'm surprised they used those solar powered streetlights for that section of road, since its in the city and there's probably no issue with electricity.

Mexico City's freeway system seems like it has a few missing links. In the same part of the city, there's no direct connection between the grade separated parts of the Circuto Interior and the Periferico. Also there is no way to go from the pereferico to northbound on the toluca-mexico autopista either.

[MEX] Mexico | road infrastructure • Autopistas y Carreteras

Actually 100% of the bridges that are tollways over the Periferico are powered by solar panels. I guess they try to be ecological or whatever lol. Now, speaking about connection to Toluca, there is thru the Supervia which ends in Santa Fe connecting with the toll road to Toluca. The Circuito Interior has no such thing as this elevated highways.

Well as a dual carriageway (4 lanes), I would say just to Villahermosa, Tabasco, because to Arriaga (as well to Guatemala) you still need to cross 2 lane highway across (A2, two lanes with shoulders), such in Oaxaca and Chiapas states.

There have been many proposal of toll elevated highways trough the city to link important highways to neighbor cities and inner venues, now with this one, you can travel (almost) from Mexico City-Querataro highway directly to the Mexico-City Cuernavaca using entirely the toll elevated highway, so this avoid the nasty traffic of the city and police looking for "no circula (no car use day)" violators among other benefits.

Still missing the links to Mexico City-Puebla (planning) and a link to the new int. airport, which soon an elevated toll highway network will be built to serve the entire city, which its similar to urban toll highways used in Tokyo, Japan.

Currently to get from Mexico City to Toluca, you either detour to the Super via (southwest of the city) or traverse local streets with stoplights and some slums which somehow its faster if you come from downtown or north side of the city rather than going south to take super via, but in a future it'll get easier by a new elevated highway proposed... but many neighbors in the area opposes to any new implementation of transport in the area (even the suburban subway line, which is under construction)

The elevated highways has caused huge controversy due this serves only to few people with money and cars to move, most of the people will continue to suffer traffic jams and lack of public transport options.

Are there plans to convert the eastern part of the Anillo Periférico into a freeway? There is some limited grade-separation now, but most of it has traffic lights, or are frontage roads with U-turns.

I also wonder if it makes sense to build an 'Arco Sur' that would run from Toluca via Cuernavaca to Puebla. There is no good bypass on the south/southwest side of Mexico City.

The new airport could bring more development in regard the eastern roads of the City and in the future that could turn the whole Anillo into a freeway, like it should've been since it's opening.. but we should't expect that much yet.
I read somewhere that the Arco Norte was part of a planed whole Ring to include the southern section in the future, but I thing was only a rumour.

ChrisZwolle, are you from Mexico?
