In the previous map appear part of Navarra and mainly Aragón (boundary is in the pink line).

All the roads are pointed with the oficial number, colour, and name. But only Fomento manages N-240 and A-21 (on Works in the image, partially opened today)

The other ones, Fomento just copy the official information they receive.

I've been inside the two tunnels that are located partially in my province, as well as the Folgoso and Soller ones. I would have been in the Belate tunnel if it wasn't closed due to an accident by the time I went through the area, forcing us to go up the mountain pass (And we would have done the same in Soller if we knew it was t[r]olled).

Somport is the longest non-tolled in all UE.

And the longest "natural" tunnel in Spain (Madrid ones are just covered motorways)

By the way, Cadi south entrance is in Barcelona province. North entrance is in Lleida province but almost the whole tunnel is Girona province!!

This is the longest motorway bridge in Spain. Rande Bridge in Vigo, Galizia. 1.558 m. Opened in 1978.







And this is the longest bridge under construction: La Pepa Bridge, in Cadiz, Andalucia. 5.000 m.

No, it can't be.

The San Gottardo tunnel is longer than the Somport, and no tolls are charged to drive there.

The Somport Tunnel is indeed the longest untolled tunnel in the European Union. It's not the longest of Europe though, the Lærdal Tunnel in Norway is 3 times longer and untolled. By 2023, the Stockholm Bypass Tunnel will be the longest untolled tunnel in the EU (16.5 km).

I do not consider the Gotthard Tunnel or Seelisberg Tunnel to be toll-free. You need a vignette to drive through them.

Well, those tunnels were made by TBMs so they were not covered at all... do you mean that they aren't meant for avoiding any natural obstacle?

Urban tunnels are always discualified for rankings ... for example, Guadarrama tunnels are considered the longest tunnels in Spain while the Madrid's L12 of Metro tunnels are longer...

Guadarrama tunnel (motorway AP-6) was the first tolled motorway in Spain. Late 60ish.

If you look at a map, just crossing that tunnel there are a great deal of destinations, and it is not far from the city.

Although you do not want to pay tolls, that tunnel is almost compulsory. Alternative is the mountain pass where you won't drive faster than 40.

By the way, the AP-6 motorway costs per kilometre. So if you wanna use it only for the tunnel, you can.

Sant'Antonio Morignone tunnel on SS38 in Italy is 7925 m long. It's actually made up by three distinct tunnels linked together. May this be the second longest untolled in EU?

It is possible.

To my best knowledge, Somport tunnel is 50 metres longer than in the first projetc to avoid having an entrance inside a national park. French government asked to enlarge it a little just to avoid it.

2/3 in Spain more or less but not easy to know when you have crossed the border. Signals are the same, bilingual and there are only some flags paintes in the wall... But a tiny paint considering the huge tunnel

I wouldn't consider it either tiny or discreet.

I don't know if it can be a motorway, but Quinto Centenario in Seville (2+3 lanes with the lane in the middle for both directions depending on the moment of the day) is 500m longer

All right, perhaps it was a mistake, I read in Google that Rande Bridge was the longest motorway bridge but I didn't know that V Centenario Bridge is longer.

Thank you for the clarification. So, you have all reason, V Centenario Bridge in Seville is the longest motorway bridge in Spain.
