I believe the roundabout is a temporary thing until they build the new road North. But for all purposes I consider this new C-13 section full motorway (And as such I posted the opening on the motorway openings thread) even if it is not signed as one. And as verreme pointed out, there are plans to make a full ringroad about Lleida.

There was no A-22 back then. Oh, and if you come back to Spain PM me please.

Are you sure? A-22 at Monzon was opened in 2006

I drove there in 2006 and I do not recall A-22 being opened yet. Monzón bypass opened in 2008. (22 July to be exact). I remember seeing circle irrigation along the N-240 for the first time in my life.

Let me ask in another thread because I was in centre Monzon in July 2007 and I do not remember heavy traffic and I'm absolutely sure that strech Ponzano-El Pueyo was opened in January 2009. I drove there the day after opening and posted somewhere.

Edit: Sure... Ponzano-El Pueyo in A-22 was opened in January 30th, 2009 and I drove there the day after

The first section of A-22 was opened in 2008. Maybe it was Sunday when you were in Monzón (Funny, is not that rainy despite it translates to "monsoon"). I have driven on Z-40/E90 superhighway on a Sunday, I felt like driving in North Korea .

My last video of Eix Transversal:



With this and Lleida Southern bypass, there are no more regional-government-financed motorways U/C in Catalonia. Not even major roads. All we have is tons of projects and plans

Some news about Spanish roads :

Last Monday, Regional Highway Ourense - Celanova (AG-31) (18,7 km) was opened in Galicia.


Source: RTVE

On the other hand, works on N-322 in the North of Albacete finished some months ago. A five-kilometre-long dual-carriageway has been built from the junction with A-31, where Albacete ring road finishes, to Pinares de Jucar crossroad.

Some photos of the second section (A-92 - A-375) of SE-40, the second ringroad of Seville. It hasn't been opened yet

Autovías with N-x road numbers do not only exist in the Basque Country. Here's one in Zaragoza.

That is awesome news. I suppose there is a full-motorway interchange between A-31 and N-322 now, right? The previous situation, that featured with a left turn in a four-lane single-carriageway road, was extremely dangerous and out of place for a road of such importance.

Yes. This interchange has been refurbished. In fact, works have taken several years. I drove through A-31 last summer and exits on this junction was been modified.

As you say, there are still some examples of N-XXX dual-carriageways, as N-601 in Valladolid :

http://maps.google.es/?ll=41.564023,...39.58,,0,10.25

In my opinion, N-322 through Albacete should have been upgraded to A-32.

Yes it should, especially now that other stretches of A-32 are being built further West.

This stretch of N-232 near Zaragoza is 3x3 with four traffic lights.

It was named as A-68 until the motorway that links AP-68 (untolled there) and A-68 near Utebo was opened. Then it came again to N-232
https://maps.google.es/?ll=41.687207...84543&t=h&z=14

N-330 south has never changed the name. Now it has some roundabouts after building A-23 (which goes absolutely beside)
https://maps.google.es/?ll=41.604839...,23.39,,0,4.29


N-330 north was named as A-23, E-07 even if it had a big, big roundabout and several U turns using left lane.

When in 2008 a new exit to north was opened, it became again to N-330

We have these unclassifiable roads because politicians think both that highways are cool and that people are utter idiots. They are able to put blue signals in roads like this one:
https://maps.google.com/maps?q=anzan...53.65,,0,13.58
...And then to say that we're lucky because we have 42 new kilometres of highway... and they expect us to believe it.

AP-7 Cartagena - Vera

The AP-7 Cartagena - Vera entered bankruptcy with a liability of € 550 million. The 115 kilometer toll road opened in 2007 but traffic volumes were way below expectations. The first 8 months of 2012 recorded a daily average volume of 3100 vehicles per day.

What will happen? Will the regional government take over the company for a fraction of the price?

I assume this happened because there is a perfectly adequate non-toll road going in the same direction or another more convenient motorway. Correct?
