I wouldn't say it's "halted". It's not like the A-11, where the works were started and then stopped due to budget cuts.

The project of the A-12 from Santo Domingo to Burgos is currently being drawn up by engineers. It goes on at a (very) slow pace.

As you said, works between Burgos and Ibeas de Juarros are expected to begin in late 2015 following a PPP method. That's the most necessary segment at the moment, as it carries commuter traffic from/to Burgos. Map: http://wikimapia.org/#lang=es&lat=42...81629&z=14&m=o

Do you know when the works began?

I think wikipedia is outdated (stating "tender procedure"):

What's about the other sections, have works began there too? Unfortunately, Google Maps and Bing Maps display older aerials there .
As I said, that's not halted constuction. What you see there is just the old N-120.

Works between Villamayor and Grañón (west of Santo Domingo) were never started because the project isn't ready yet. So, Wikipedia is right.

There is a 2.5 km long stretch between Grañón and Santo Domingo in which the N-120 was "moved" to the south.

The old N-120 was demolished, but the platform was prepared for the westbound carriageway of the future A-12.

The current N-120 was built on a new platform, parallel to the old one. It will be the eastbound carriageway of the future A-12.

Aerial picture from 2009:


Construction took place at the same time that the A-12 around Santo Domingo was being built (2008-2012 IIRC).

It could be argued that it was strange not to build the whole A-12 all the way between Santo Domingo and Grañón, but that's it. It was projected as I said.

Only that one (from Sto. Domingo to the end of La Rioja) and more or less at the same time that Najera-Sto.Domingo.

There is really nothing else but now we do know the project for the western stretch (besides Burgos) and project redaction could start this year.

The current terminus of the motorway will be the beginning of the new Elche-Santa Pola road (a dual-carriageway road with roundabouts). I searched some recent information about the status of this project, but I found none .

Por otra parte, se refirió al anuncio que realizó hace unos días la senadora y presidenta del Partido Popular de Soria, Marimar Angulo, sobre el inicio de las obras de los tramos sorianos de la Autovía del Duero el próximo 1 de abril y aseguró que “la tramitación administrativa está en un grado muy avanzado y el 1 de abril las obras podrán comenzar”.
I think it's about A11, but which section(s) will probably be resumed on 1st April 2015?

I'm not really sure if that's enough to start the construction again.

Haven't been in Spain since last year but according to the local press works have already started. In fact, the Secretary of State for the Transports and Infrastructures should have visited the construction site yesterday but the meeting was cancelled after the Germanwings plane crashed in the French Alps.

P.S.: In the comments box of that article there's someone saying that works haven't started and the visit would only serve political purposes. I don't know what to think now...

I guess last 2 km will be in autumn. Minister said it last year and, in addition, general polls are in november. Therefore... as near to them as possible

Hmmm, this A11 section is still announced to be opened 'late March 2015'. Source of 24th March.

The Ministry of Fomento has approved the contract of the works for the connection between A-52 and AG-51 East of Vigo. AG-51 opened in 2014, but it's not connected to A-52 -drivers must take a huge detour to reach it. It ends a bit in the middle of nowhere, since the works of the huge industrial park it was meant to serve are stopped. It doesn't even show on Google Maps.

The new junction will be a proper trumpet interchange, and it will also connect the existing local roads (source).

The last stretch of the A-12 between Pamplona and Logroño has been opened today:

Overall, 53,5 kilometers of motorway opened today. It's been a good day

A picture of A-15 between Medinaceli and Radona. Notice the weird road numbers. They look almost like a license plate more than a road:



And this is the new A-7 between La Gorgoracha and El Puntalón, which completes A-7 around Motril and also opened today. Notice the E-route number above the signs:



Also, this article says that Fomento also announced the beginning of the works in all Sorian stretches of A-11. If that's true, it's some 50 kilometers of good ol' autovía through the middle of nowhere
