Ok. I already had the eastern 33km part in my list. I'll add the western part too (I guess I just forgot it last April). I'll keep it "suspended" until getting info about constructrion restart.

Correct. That's what the press release says. But Quintanadueñas (BU622) is in the middle of the section. Do you think there are more than one section, the first and second to be opened next September?

- Adding a 2nd c/w b/n Villatoro (A73) and Villimar (BU-V-5029), to be opened in September? (map)
- 1st and 2nd c/w b/n Quintanadueñas (BU622) and Villatoro (A73), to be opened in September? (map)
- 1st and 2nd c/w b/n Villalbilla de Burgos (A231) and Quintanadueñas (BU622), to be opened further along the line? (map)

From what I've read on the Spanish forum (http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...607474&page=37), I don't think it will be possible to open the section between Villalbilla (A-231) and Quintanadueñas (BU-622) in September.

Checking the aerial images from August 2014, it can be seen how that section is much more delayed.

Section Quintanadueñas (BU-622) - Villatoro (A-73) - Villímar (BU-V-5029) (To be opened in September 2015):


Section Villalbilla (A-231) - Quintanadueñas (BU-622) (Probably to be opened in 2016):

The environmental impact assessment for the autopista from Toledo to Ciudad Real has been annulled by court.

http://www.eldiario.es/clm/proyecto-...366064170.html

I don't think this motorway is necessary anyway. The N-401 is already bypassing almost all towns and has numerous grade-separations.

And a long tunnel in a little mountain.

Several bypasses and you have a nice freeway

In that way the Ministry of Environment has been sensible, issuing negative EIAs for projects that would have little to no traffic, like AP-41 South of Toledo and A-40 Cuenca-Teruel. Actually most of A-40 doesn't make sense, only Maqueda-Toledo-Aranjuez is justified by traffic, but Toledo-Aranjuez was delayed due to AP-41 being cancelled. Also Tarancon-Cuenca so the latter city would get a high speed link to Madrid. At least they looked towards Cuenca*...

* 'To put someone looking towards Cuenca' is a literal translation of 'Poner a alguien mirando a Cuenca', which actually means 'Get lost!'.

Cuenca-Teruel is a missing link that should be plugged IMO.

I wonder why it hasn't been named AC-30. Anyway, good news. I think the current access to Coruña via AP-9/Avenida de Alfonso Molina is quite crowded.

MichiH, please change this next time you update the list (change suspended to March 2015):
AC14: As Lonzas – A Zapateira 4.2km (2011 to suspended) – projectmap


The bypass of Granada (new A-44) is being partly opened in April too:

A44: Calicasas – Albolote (A92) 4.8km (2006 to suspended) – projectmap
A44: Albolote (A92) – Santa Fe (A92G) 5.6km (2007 to suspended) – projectmap
A44: Santa Fe (A92G) – Las Gabias (A338) 8.7km (2009 to suspended) – projectmap

It should be changed to:

A44: Calicasas – Albolote (A92) 4.8km (2006 to April 2015) – projectmap
A44: Albolote (A92) – N-432 3km (2007 to April 2015) – projectmap
A44: N-432 – Santa Fe (A92G) 5.6km (2007 to 2015) – projectmap
A44: Santa Fe (A92G) – Las Gabias (A338) 8.7km (2009 to suspended) – projectmap

Source: http://www.fomento.gob.es/MFOM/LANG_.../141027-01.htm


I would also add this bypass in Córdoba:

A4: N-432 – Los Visos: 4,2 km (2010 to March 2015) – ? – map

The 4.2km section was opened yesterday (map). Source.

I'm not sure about the 2nd section b/n A92 and A92G. Will A92G be opened in 2015 too? There's no reference to A92G in the press release!?

I thought about it but didn't add it b/c the "new" route is very short (~2km), the realigned route is just 300m away from the old route which will be closed. Both routes have almost the same length.

There are many realignments with this attributes........

A-92G is the Western access to Granada from A-92: https://www.google.es/maps/@37.1960183,-3.6891469,14z

By the way, they have confused the new bypass with GR-43, another access motorway.

It has been duplicated for several decades now! But it's not grade separated.

Yes, you're right. The Spanish wikipedia says the completion date is 2015 (http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autov%C...Costa_Tropical) but there isn't any mention in the press release about when the opening will take place.

However, you could change the status from suspended to ? because the works were restarted in 2014.

To sum up, something like this:

A44: Calicasas – Albolote (A92) 4.8km (2006 to April 2015) – projectmap
A44: Albolote (A92) – N-432 3km (2007 to April 2015) – projectmap
A44: N-432 – Santa Fe (A92G) 5.6km (2007 to ?) – projectmap


The works in Santa Fe-Las Gabias should be restarted this year, and Las Gabias-Alhendín should start this year too.

A-44, autovía de circunvalación exterior de Granada, en la que se han reactivado este 2014 las obras del tramo Albolote-Santa Fe y en la que se reactivarán las del tramo Santa Fe-Las Gabias. Además, se prevé la licitación de las obras del tramo Las Gabias-Alhendín, con lo que toda la circunvalación de Granada se encontraría en ejecución.

I think he's asking about the new A-44, the section between N-432 and A-92G.

Of course the A-92G is a dual carriageway which was built decades ago.

According to wikipedia, works are suspended. Is that correct, have works ever been started on this section?

No, I've mistaken A92G and the road to the interchange b/n N432 and A92G (map), a new alignment of N432?

btw: What will happen to the "old" A44? Will it be closed or rededicated to Axxx?

Apparently not. Check: http://binged.it/1FkFG1g . Works stop just south of the A-338 in Las Gabias.

Maybe the contract was given to a company but the works were suspended due to budget cuts before they even started.

Yes, that new allignment of N-432 is called GR-43.

I don't think it will be closed. AADT in 2013 was 121,387 vehicles/day. Probably the new A-44 could take half of that traffic, but it would still have about 60,000 vehicles/day. It will probably be renamed to GR-20 or GR-30.

It will be renamed as GR-20 or something like that, meaning that it is Granada ring road (similar to what happened when Málaga outer bypass was opened and the old bypass was renamed from A-7 to MA-20), leaving the A-44 name for the new outer bypass.

Between Cuenca and Teruel there's basically a vast extension of nothing. Plus, a motorway-like connection would not help long-distance traffic, because there are other (better) routes. And the terrain is difficult; a motorway would be too expensive.

AC-14 is an access motorway that is connected to the third ring road, which has another name (and has been paid by Galician regional government, not Fomento).

Traffic in Coruña is bad, the third ring road is a huge improvement that should have come much earlier. It's a shame that they won't build the full Vía Ártabra, an expressway that was planned to ring the highly scattered metro area of the city.
