Ok let's continue with spanish motorway projects. Many projects were in Catalonia
1)What destiny of A-26?
2) C-25 between A-2 and A-7?
3) A-7 near Gerona?
4) C-16 to Berga?
5) A-7 near Tarragona?
Many projects were in other parts of country
1) A-31 Between Allicante and Novelda?
2) A-44 between Granda and Motrill?
3) A-316?
4) AP-18 next to Malaga?
5)A-4 in service in total distance between Sevila and Jerez?
6) Destiny of A-47, A-58 and border section A-11 unclear?
7) A-43?
8)AP-36 and AP-41?
9) AG-56, AG-55, AG-64?
10) A-54 and A-56?
11) short section AP-53 near Orence?
12) Cl-631?
13) A-63 between Oviedo and Le Espina?
14) A-22 between Lerida and Huesca?
15) A-14?

1)What destiny of A-26? Destiny? Anyway, between Figueres and Besalú works haven't started yet, from there to Olot is done.
2) C-25 between A-2 and A-2, or E15/AP-7? Works in progress, hopefully will open next year.
3) A-2 near Gerona? Works are stopped from Tordera to Caldes de Malavella, from there to Girona is open.
4) C-16 to Berga? Done. Berga sounds like "verga" which is vulgar Spanish for "dick" hehe
5) A-7 near Tarragona? From Vandellós to Altafulla is done (Vila-seca and Tarragona bypasses have been there for many years). From Altafulla northeastward, nothing.
Many projects were in other parts of country
1) A-31 Between Alicante and Novelda? Maybe reconstruction works? Because that autovía has been there since the 80s.
2) A-44 between Granda and Motril? Open. For me is E902.
3) A-316? And A-318 . AFAIK only Martos to Mancha Real is open.
4) AP-46 next to Malaga? There is no AP-18, but once there was a A-18 which is now part of C-16. Maybe you refer to AP-46 which is open.
5)A-4 in service in total distance between Seville and Jerez? Nothing. Only between Seville and "Two Sisters" (Dos Hermanas).
6) Destiny of A-47, A-58 and border section A-11 unclear? A-47 nothing, Zamora-Portugal section of A-11 nothing. A-58 is done, it's Trujillo-Cáceres and no need to extend it westwards.
7) A-43? Merida-Puertollano still unclear, Ciudad Real-"knooppunt" Atalaya is open.
8)AP-36 and AP-41? Both are open. But trust me, they should haven't built AP-41... Oh, South of Toledo, no AP-41 will be built due to enviromental reasons.
9) AG-56, AG-55, AG-64? All of them are open. But I've heard they are extending AG-56 from Brion to Noia and AG-55 from Carballo to Cee.
10) A-54 and A-56? Both are under costruction.
11) short section AP-53 near Orense? Open as AG-53.
12) Cl-631? Open from Ponferrada to Toreno, from there to Villablino remains a regular road. The autovía section is also CL-631, pfew, because they have A-231 León-Burgos which is the same number as a road in Eastern Aragon.
13) A-63 between Oviedo and La Espina? I'm sure is opened all the way to Grado, don't know further. At least I know it's U/C.
14) A-22 between Lerida and Huesca? Siétamo-Huesca has not started works yet , otherwise is all open.
15) A-14? This also falls in Catalonia section, because the only open section (from nowhere to nowhere) and the U/C sections are there. In Aragon, nothing.
Here are the answers and spelling corrections.

Just to point that out:

- A-316 is U/C from Baeza to Mancha Real. Works are visible in Google Earth. Úbeda-Baeza is open for traffic.
- AG-56 reaches Noia as a two-lane expressway, which opened last year.
- Most of A-54 is U/C; there are no works in A-56. Projects are ready though.
- There are no U/C sections in A-14. Only one stretch opened this year, which goes actually from nowhere to nowhere further.

A video of C-17 from Barcelona to Vic. Only the last half is classified as a motorway; the first one is a dual-carriageway road. A stretch of it opened in the late 50s and was called "Autopista de La Ametlla", making it one of the first motorways in Spain.

Nice photos. I was wondering why no Spanish forum members appear to take photos of their highways, they're often quite photogenic.

Maybe because we are used to drive the same motorways always and they don't seem photogenic to us but boring hahahahaha

I'll try to make some photos to show (or a video as it's easier while I'm driving alone) :P I'd love to show you the AP-41 but I only drive it at nights (because it's free).

I've paid to go from Madrid to Toledo through AP-41. Nobody overtook me and I didn't overtake any vehicle!! You'll see...

Nice. I see you also took pictures of the "inner" part of R-2, between M-50 of M-40. Its good to see such a pristine motorway. Shame it wasn't necessary at all. When roadworks at A-2 are ready, nobody is going to choose R-2.

Yeah, and this "inner" section has an open toll system, with 2 toll pazas separated only by 3.9 km!

The new box design for the M-45 (an anther M-XXX road from Madrid region) with that big "M" in red and numbers in Arial Black (I'm pretty sure they can be Helvetica Blood or Black) are horrible, like a pain in the ass or drive along Struma Hwy.

And, one question… Is Madrid the only region where we can find ABC exits…? I never seen more than AB exits outside Madrid.

Those signs are very...colorful.

What's "shadow-tolled" mean?

It's a road under concession, but the tolls are paid via taxes indirectly. The road is operated like any other toll road, but there is no physical toll collection. Just a bunch of camerars counting vehicles and sending bills to the government.

The upside of shadow tolls is that the government is able to construct new roads during budget cuts, because the costs are spread out. The downside is that it creates a long-term burden on road expenses. It's a common way to finance roads in for instance Portugal and the United Kingdom, but also Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium, and probably more countries.

On the N-330 (Former E07) in Zaragoza, at the interchange with E90/Z-40: http://goo.gl/maps/IgR0d. And on the E90/Z-40 in the same interchange there was another one, but I believe they have removed it with the widening.

They are way more photogenic than the Dutch ones
Spanish rural motorways often resemble rural freeways of southwestern USA. Desert environment, wide median, sometimes no barriers. I once hitchhiked from Madrid to Alicante and most of the way I felt like in Arizona.

This toll road looks so empty, it must be bankrupt. Was it Sunday or something? Also, amount of toll plazas on such short stretch is just ridiculous
