Which motorway or expressway projects are currently u/c (or have been completed in 2014)?

A11: Khouribga – Beni Mellal 12 95km (April 2010 to 17th May 2014) – ? – map
A1: Rabat-East (A2) – Sale El Jadida 21 5.1km (2010 to 2014) – ? – map
A1: Sale El Jadida – Skhirat (A3) 12 36.0km (2010 to 2014) – ? – map
A11: Berrechid (A7) – Khouribga 12 75km (April 2010 to Early 2015) – ? – map

Is the list complete?
Are there project pages?
Is the expected opening of the Rabat ringroad still correct?
The the A1 numbering for the Rabat ringroad correct?

the list will be complete if you add the Safi Eljadida motorway 143 km (Thread in the moroccan forum) (map )

Adm chose 4 as the number for the berrechid khouribga motorway (screenshot) (A4 berrechid beni mellal motorway Thread) the remaining segment is dut to open in july next year according to a sscm forumer who works for the national motorway company ADM

the rabat ringroad won't open this year i think end of 2015 ( thread) (955m Cable-Stayed Bridge thread)
we'll have to wait for the project to complet before we know which number has been assigned for

and here's a map

Thank you . I've checked the thread partial but I couldn't find all required info. Is the project splitted into four sections which will be opened individual? When have the works been started on the sections, when will the sections been opened for traffic? Thanks in advance .

PS: There are currently no expressways u/c (two carriageways, grade-separated and access-controlled)?

When will they finish the Moroccan motorway A2 with Algerian motorway A1? The Algerian motorway A1 goes directly to the border. But the Moroccan motorway A2 is still some way from Oujda to the border. When is the last part from Oujda to the border to be ready so Moroccan and Algerian motorways are connected?

the border is closed, and while Algeria decided to build up to the border, Morocco are taking a more pragmatic approach and not building bits that would serve no purpose until the geopolitical situation changes.

as the case with other motorways here, this project was also split into four lots, works on the first two starting from eljadida(20,6+38,6) will be carried by moroccan construction companies (hajji and Houar), the Turkish Nurol won the tender to construct the last two sections (82 km) (map)
the fes oujda motorway ,although long (320 km and was split into several lots was opened as one block in summer 2011 so i doubt that this motorway will be opened progressively
works on the motorway started in April 2013 it's expected to finish by 2015 but motorway construction in morocco is slow and you can easily have a one year delay so i would say 2016

the only grade-separated and access-controlled roads in morocco are the motorways,and what we call expressways in our subforum are just dualized 1+1 national roads ( example)
U-C:
national road N2 will be dualized between ahfir and nador 90km (northeast )
national N2 and regional road R505 between taza and alhoceima 148km
national road N1 between massa bridge and tiznit 30 km
provincial road P4404 betwwen larache and kasr kebir 27 km

Really very nice roads in Morocco

I have a story when I went between Khouribga and Beni Mellal, today, the link between Khouribga and A11 is under construction and it look like a goat path (gravel road) rather a road that would lead to a highway, but no problem, I have a Land Rover, so it was fun compared to the N11 cause is like any main road in Spain: slow traffic and idiots who endanger their lives and those of others. The A11 has no traffic: I was the only one driver for 80km. I love empty roads

Also, as spaniard, the toll and gasoil prices are awesome, less than 0,80€/L for diesel.

On A3 I saw an numbered exit, the only one that I saw in Morocco, and that brings me to the question of why there is no exit numbered nor Motorway signage with route numbers?. Route numbers on Motorways and Exit numbers are pretty useful.

You must talk about the Exit 17 in Skhirat, it's the newly numbered exit, maybe ADM will generalize the numbers for other exists. for now there is no official communication about that from ADM.

Others membres in SSC Morocco, observed that the network was renamed recently, the A3 will become A1 for example, and the number "17" in Skhirat exist corresponds to the km 17...

well maybe we'll have some more explanations from ADM in the next months

Has anyone seen cable barriers in use on Moroccan highways? They are cheaper than guardrail, and much safer when collisions occur. How can I introduce a new product to the autoroute market here?

But after the widening they were replaced with steel or concrete.
On autoroutes concrete seems to be the standard in Morocco. When the median is wide, no barriers are used except steel barriers to protect against bridge pillars and signposts.

But they might be a good idea for voies expresse (non-autoroute expressways) that usually have very narrow medians with limited space, like in this example:


In Sweden they are also used that way:

Thanks for that jdb.2! Normally cable barriers are installed when the median is wide enough to allow for large deflections without endangering oncoming traffic...that way the posts can be spaced out for cost savings. The picture from Sweden may be cost prohibitive compared with concrete or guardrail because of the high # of posts needed - they are spaced very close together!

But even when medians are wide...crossover accidents still happen - like in Meknes this past week. Cable barriers greatly reduce these unnecessary deaths.

I wonder why Morocco stopped using cable barriers? Anyone have any ideas?
