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...

Thanks for the info, clear and precise as always.

It is a colossal engineering work with a cost circa € 25,000 per metre, a succession of tunnels and bridges that will blow the driver away, a wonderful 36 Km .... a last minute solution for a long foreseen problem I'm afraid .....

This the AP6, the entrance of the Guadarramas tunnels, I think in the Madrid's side. The jam is due to the toll that's is set in the other side of the tunnel.

It is made to relieve the A8 from the heavy traffic it handles, but I wouldn't call it a replacement.
A8 will continue to serve as an autopista.

As you probably know, the first-generation Autovías (built during the 80's) are going to be improved in order to reach the parameters of a modern highway. If you are interested in this, you can get some information here (in Spanish).

Now, these pics were taken in the A-1 highway between the Basque Country and Castile. (By Aokromes)

This is the old A-1 highway to Burgos.






La Puebla de Arganzón village, in Condado de Treviño.






The new A-1 (under construction):




To Vitoria-Gasteiz.
