Some more:

A23 (Autovía Mudéjar)

Map of the motorway with the open stretches in red. As you can see it connects the Pyrenees with the Mediterranean sea near Valencia, going through Huesca, Zaragoza and Teruel. The total lenght is around 450km.


Viaducto de Paniza -800m- (Zaragoza)


Viaducto de Albentosa (Castellón)

^ Coolchy. These interchanges with roundabouts are typical for the UAE.

Between Sagunto (Valencia) and Zaragoza it should be completed in the early 2008. At the north, it is far more delayed.

Yeah, but the majority of Sagunt - Zaragoza is already in service Between Zaragoza is also a section missing, however, most of it's length to Huesca is an Autovía. It stops just north of Huesca.

True, there is a roundabout near Zaragoza. That makes the A-23 an incomplete autovía.
http://maps.google.es/?ie=UTF8&ll=41...&t=h&z=16&om=1

However, that roundabout is currently being changed into a tunnel.



More pictures here.

Furthermore, there is a new autovía being built in parallel. I think it's a part of the Z-40, but it appears as A-2 at Google Maps

This is what Michelin thinks of it;

Also notice the A68 southeast of Zaragoza, is that really still the A68?

The A-68 will finish between Tortosa and Vinaròs, in the AP-7. That stretch of the A-68 without motorway characteristics will also be replaced by another highway (Z-50).

Well, that A-2 on google maps is obviously just an error.
But you think they will call it Z-40? I don't know, but isn't it possible that they call it A-23, and change the name of the actual A-23 stretch(which is substandart, and has the roundabout by now) it will replace?

I finf those sings in Spain funny, it sounds like "Sorry for being molested", but if that was true it wouldn't be funny because molesting isn't funny it's a horrible thing.

It's a common and polite way to announce any lack of quality in a service. What elses should they say?

By the way, it also says: Drive carefully

Dutch and German signs says usually "Bedankt voor uw begrip" or "Danke für Ihr Verständnis". It means Thanks for your understanding.

It just sounds like something else in for people that aren't Spanish.

Ok. Well, in Spanish it's a normal word without any other meaning. You know, they just don't think about possible false-friended translations into other languages when they use an standard sentence.
