The opening picture of AC-14:


What is the actual number of the western branch of the ring road? I've read V-14 or VG-14, but Google Streetview shows it is signed as V-1.4 at the roundabout at the end. What's the prefix 'V' for, vecinal?

And there's this:

VG-1.4 is the correct designation. They were originally named VRG (and CRG)-x.x, but due to confusing name (Vía Rápida, can mean 'fast way') the R was dropped. The first number is assigned to each province (1=Corunna; 2=Lugo; 3=Ourense, but there aren't any yet; 4=Pontevedra), and the second number is assigned sequentially.

Closed? The year before Hiperronda in Málaga was opened, the A-44 stretch in Granada was the fourth busiest road in Spain, just after two stretches in Madrid and the present-day MA-20.

From year 2003 (when all tolled motorways were renamed from A-xx to AP-xx), the name GR-30 is reserved for the old stretch of A-44.

But why do they use a period in between the numbers? Beisdes, there are some regional motorways in Galicia, but they don't seem to follow the same pattern (e.g. AG-55). So, you can find AG-XX, VG-X.X and CG-X.X for regional roads. Thank God they dropped the R to make it less confusing.

Technicians of Council of Gipuzkoa have decided that it is necessary another project study, so works are going to be paralized this year entirely.

This is a sad notice to all inhabitants of this part of Gipuzkoa because the old road has a lot of traffic because this province is one of the most indutrialized region of Spain.

But I've just read that the cancellation only affects construction works between Antzuola and Bergara; that means that construction is ongoing between Urretxu and Antzuola and, according to the following link, this section will open at the end of March this year.

http://www.eitb.eus/es/noticias/soci...tzuolabergara/
According to a news article (15th March), GI632 works will be resumed in late 2015 and completed by 2017. There's no info about the Bergara – Antzuola section. Is it still likely to be opened in late March?

According to latest news, Antzuola - Bergara will be re-tendered after the summer and works will restart before the end of the year, foreseeing an opening in 2017.

The last information we have (from one month ago) is that section Urretxu - Antzuola will open before the end of this month.

I made a video of the new C-62 in Catalonia. It's quite a big (>30 km) road project that connects the towns of Vic and Berga and everything between them, mostly farmland. Most of it has opened along the current decade, and as of 2015 there's only one stretch to build.

It's a huge improvement for the region; the trip on the old road took more than double. C-62 is a high-standard road, with frequent climbing lanes and emergency ramps, though all of it is at-grade.

Nice video

Is there a plan to extend C-32 further Northeast?

You have an answer two pages earlier in this thread

Lloret de Mar is the farthest it will go. There were plans to extend A-2 to the South and connect it to C-32 in Tordera, but it was deemed too expensive by Fomento and plans have been shelved. I hope they unearth them some day -that stretch of N-II is a pain.

Whate about extending it through the coast all the way to St. Felix del Guixoles? GI-682 looks a bad road and must be overly congested in summer.

Spain is still working away at their network and is building a lot more kms per year than France is relative to population and also relative to size of overall economy.

Both road and high speed rail.

But Spain should spend much more on city accesses than on mountain motorways for sheep!

It would be a pharaonic project with a high environmental cost for little or no benefit at all.

C-32 could be eventually extended, as a normal road (not motorway), from Lloret de Mar to Tossa de Mar, but beyond this town there is nothing until reaching Sant Feliu de Guíxols.

C-35, C-65 and C-31 already provide motorway access from AP-7 (and therefore Barcelona) to Sant Feliu de Guíxols and the rest of the Costa Brava (until Palafrugell).

There is no need to build a parallel and expensive motorway following the coast, it is a sparsely populated area and part of a natural reserve (Massís de les Cadiretes).
