Between Bailén and Linares, and from Ibros to Úbeda (Rus and Canena bypass) the A-32 is open.

Sections Linares-Ibros and Úbeda-Torreperogil should be open in 2015. The rest of section, on hold or with the project finished by not still under construction.

Will it be ultimately built to Albacete, or has that project been cancelled?

Are there future plans for a better road between Ponferrada and some point on A-52, facilitating connections with future Portuguese route A4?

It is planned. The cuts cancelled most of the sections under construction. And now only from Bailén to Torreperogil seems to be opened in the short term. In the future who knows... it planned, but actually the N-322 has not lot of traffic, less than 2000 veh/day in the central section of the road close to Alcaraz.

There is a planned motorway, the A-76 along the Sil river valley from Ponferrada to Ourense. The informative study was aproved in February (press release), so now it is just about keep working on it. Not in a hurry though.

N-322 has a lot of curves between Robledo and Balazote, as it follows the Rio del Jardín

Yes, that's right. But as far I know the state of the road is pretty good. I don't know if there is a particular stretch of the road extremely bad, but the motorway is going to cover the most used section for sure.

Would it stay that way if a highway was build? IT would make possible to travel from Valencia do Jaén, Cordoba and Sevilla on a viable alternative inland route.

The predicted AADT on the future road or the actual AADT on the existing road?

The question would be that the existing links from Andalusia towards the East coast of Spain are not that saturated. Maybe Murcia urban area would be a section on the A-7 to be avoided between Andalusia and Valencian Community.

A-4 through Despeñaperros (which is the most used access to Andalusia) got around 20.000 veh/day, which is not too much. And the A-43 from Manzanares (A-4) to Atalaya de Cañavate (A-3) is pretty underused, with AADT under 10.000 veh/day.

I guess in the case of finishing the A-32 it would get at most around 10.000 veh/day. A-7 and A-92N in the East limit of Andalusia with Murcia get that amount of traffic.

Travelling from the Mediterranean coast to Western Andalucía is already possible thanks to A-43. A-32 does only make sense to connect Albacete and Jaén provinces, which are among the poorest in Spain, especially the latter.

AADT on the stretches closest to Albacete is around 5.000 vehicles per day, though it's true that a motorway would attract more traffic. A-32 will take some time to arrive but there's no need to hurry because the existing road is perfectly adequate and in good shape. Plus, the terrain is more difficult than in the flats (after El Jardín there's Spain's longest straight at 20+ kilometers), so it would be more expensive than other motorways in La Mancha that carry that amount of traffic but were built because they were ridiculously cheap.

The particular stretch that follows the river is no treacherous mountain pass -I've driven most of it no slower than 80-100 km/h. Back in 2008 it was in very good shape, unlike closer to Linares where the road seemed to have been a minefield. Don't know if it has been repaired since.

A43 will increase traffic when arriving to Merida cos it's fastest way Valencia-Lisboa

Extension of motorway A-58 (Trujillo-Cáceres): Cáceres Northern bypass, link to A-66 and Malpartida de Cáceres bypass

Quote:
Spanish Ministry of Public Works awards the project writing for the construction of the Malpartida de Cáceres bypass, in the N-521
The total budget for the awarding is 1.02 M€
The 10,7 km long bypass construction is estimated in 53 M€.
In total, 10.7 km, divided in two different sections depending on the road caracteristics: 3 km long section from the end of the current A-58 to the interchange Cáceres West in the A-66 which will get motorway caracteristics and will double the existing N-521; and then other 7,7 km as Malpartida de Cáceres bypass as single carriageway road but already prepared to be converted into motorway in the future.

Location.

It is very unlikely that A-43 will reach Extremadura in the future. At least not in the next 20 years.

I know... and another problem is that you can reach Extremadura from Ciudad Real but not via Puertollano.

This is... there are several motorways where you can build a stretch and you improve the area.

In the A-43 it only has sense to complete totally Puertollano-Merida

Spanish Ministry of Public Works awards project writing for the motorway A-68 between Arrúbal and Navarrete in La Rioja
It is known as Logroño bypass

The budget for the project writing is 1,09 millions of euros.
The estimated budget for the project construcction is 122 millions of euros

Basically it is not a new motorway but the liberalization of the current toll motorway AP-68 for bein used as Logroño bypass for mid and long range traffic, avoiding the saturated LO-20 inside the city of Logroño.

The current 2x2 section could be upgraded to 3x3 if traffic requires it, but it is not still decided. New motorway links will be built in the start and end of this section for connecting the motorway with the existing road N-232, and new toll stations will be built in both extremes.

Are they planning to make changes to AP-68, or will it only become toll-free?

And about the Mudéjar motorway A-23 (Sagunto-Jaca), between Monrepós and Sabiñánigo (northern Aragon)

Quote:
Spanish Ministry of Public Works restarts works in the Caldearenas-Lanave section in Huesca
Motorway A-23.

It is a 12 km long motorway section.
The investment is 78,3 millions of euros.
The current road N-330 will be reused for one of the carriageways of the new motorway, towards Huesca.

The AP-68 between Arrúbal and Navarrate will become toll-free, so, it will be renamed as A-68 too.

A quick summary of the planned intervention:

-Traffic studies need to be done, but if it is needed, a third lane could be added to the current motorway.

-Connection to the N-232 will be improved by adding to motorway link at the start and at the end of this section, as well, with motorway characteristics (so no current exist will be used for connecting the motorway and the N-232).

-Existing interchanges (Agoncillo, Logroño and Navarrete) will be modified and adapted to the new situation; and a new one will be added at the intersection with the road LR-250 (close to Villamediana de Iregua).

-Two new toll plazas (as the current toll motorway will be split in two separated sections) will be added in both extremes of the section.

If you have Via-T (E-Toll) any trip between Cenicero and Agoncillo is already for free, paid by the Spanish Ministry of Public Works.

More new works.

The motorway M-503 (Madrid-Pozuelo de Alarcón-Villanueva de la Cañada) will be enlarged from 2x2 to 3x3 between the M-40 and the M-50 (3,7 km). Currently, this 2x2 section supports 95.000 veh/day (traffic in 2012 was only 72.000 veh/day, so there is an important increase). The budget is 4 millions of euros and the median strip will be used for building the third lanes.





Press release by the Community of Madrid (in Spanish).
