So that the people who are entering the highway and the slowpokes won't bother him; it's pretty much the standard way to drive around here, though they do teach us to stick to the right in driving school...

It was the old 'Nacional' between Oviedo and Gijon, which has been upgraded into a highway due to the collapsed situation of the A-66.

Central Asturias is a metropolitan area in the North of Spain with 800,000 inhabitants distributed in different towns (2 of them +200,000 and 4 +50,000).

Here's our current highway network. Only blue line is not built yet. Pics are from green line (AS-2).

I didn't know about that AS-2... it doesn't appear on viamichelin... it's an error I guess.

The asturian government is building many freeways these days!! That Oviedo-Gijon area is going to have a really dense freeway network!

This is actually an international bridge. But actually it's doesn't quallify as a freeway (auto-estrada or autopista), because of the lack of shoulders and the lanes are too narrow.
Don't ask me why they didn't built it to full freeway standards... Probably because when it was built, there were no freeways on both sides of the border... still, it was a stupid lack of vision...

Well, it appears with the old name (AS-18) as it was opened a few days ago. Its new name as a freeway is AS-2 or 'Industrial Freeway', as it connects the main industrial areas of the region.

And it's true. Now there's a lot of infraestructure being built here. Some examples:

Bridge over Nalon river (A-8) in Soto del Barco. 1000 meters length.


Bridge being upgraded to freeway in A-8 near Otur.


Connection between A-8, AS-1 and the access to Gijon.
