If he doesn't have some in the bank, he's an idiot.

A new section of A-32 will open on Monday.

Fomento:
La ministra de Fomento, Ana Pastor, asistirá el próximo lunes, 5 de noviembre, a la puesta en servicio del tramo Ibros-Úbeda de la autovía A-32 Linares-Albacete.
Ibros - Úbeda is partially already shown as opened to traffic at Google Maps.

That's great news for this region. That stretch of N-322 is not particularly the best single-carriageway road in Spain. Both A-32 and A-316 were much needed.

I made a video the Barcelona bypass of AP-7. This is probably one of the most massive motorways in Spain, at 10 through lanes in a collector/express layout. The corridor carries 150,000 vehicles per day and travels through one of the most industrialised regions in Spain, if not the most.



It features some extra footage of El Papiol interchange seen from below.

It has some similarities with M-40

Yes it does, though it serves as a bypass of the city, and M-40 is meant mainly for local traffic, being M-50 the bypass in most cases. It is also less urban than M-40, as it is at a bigger distance from the city (it's actually separated from it by a mountain range).

Later on I'll try to record a video of the collectors (B-30). They have some interesting features too.

You are right although the M-50 has a noticeable different design... nonetheless I think that in Madrid it's more difficult to split local and nonlocal traffic being the M-30 the only ringroad that could be considered completely local.

For example E05 and E90 routes pass through M-40 and not through M-50... and I really think that it should be changed...

Anyway thanks for your contribution!

I'll try to take a video of the future (far away in the future) M-60, nowadays some sections have been built as conventional roads but the interesting thing is that everything is ready for building the second roadway if the traffic rises up. It's going to be hard as I only can go there at nights :S

Video of B-23 motorway, the main access to Barcelona from AP-7. Features a 7-km long 2x4 stretch and variable speed limits through the entire route.

Thanks for the video.

Just want to say that from El Papiol to Molins de Rei the motorway is numbered AP-2, and is maintained by the private enterprise Abertis.

No opening ceremony has been held yet, though road construction must be very advanced if not finished. Maybe they want to start building something in the industrial park the road was built for, as for some years there only were some earthworks.

I made a video of C-60, the motorway connecting Maresme coast with AP-7 motorway and Vallès region. It is part of B-40, the proposed Barcelona orbital motorway. It features the 2-kilometer long Túnel de Parpers, which was recently refurbished.

Google Maps was recently updated in Spain. Now most motorways are orange (they used to be yellow or even white), and there are no orange single-carriageway roads. Plus, some newly opened roads appear in the map. But now motorways have no number, only the European route one. Plus, numbers are green in first-order roads (they should be red). And most motorways lost its name.

Seriously, everytime Google updates its maps, it's one step forward and one backwards. They never seem to get it right . Last time they updated maps, some Catalan street names that have no translation were shown in Spanish, making Ronda de Dalt Ronda de Arriba. Which sounds terribly awkward. I hope they fix it soon, because now it's impossible to navigate Spain using motorways, as they have no number nor name.

Coming from Italian thread.

About mountains seen from a road far away, I have seen the 2313 meter high Moncayo from E07 just Southwest of Huesca. And coming back from Zaragoza, the Monte Perdido (Literally "lost mount", 3355 meters a.s.l) can be seen. And both are 100+ km away.
