Indeed, that kind of information is totally useless. Such road numbers don't even appear in signs at local road intersections - they just show the name of the village

I like the name of Yelo, it's almost the only thing one sees in that area during winter .

'Yelo' is what one ends up saying when trying to say 'hielo', which means ice.

I made a video of A-26 through the foothills of the Pyrenees:



It's the only part of the so-called "Eje Pirenaico" (Pyrenean axis) to be motorway-standard, though there are plans to extend it until Figueres. That, along with C-37 bypass of Olot, could configure a new, longer expressway-grade bypass of Barcelona metro area for East-West traffic:



However, the situation of A-26 between Besalú and Figueres is unclear. Most paperwork (preliminary studies, Declaración de Impacto Ambiental, design, etc) is ready, and the only thing left is tendering, but the project seems to have been put on a shelf and there have been no news even in the tendering craze of this year, which reminds a bit of 2007 and 2008. The motorway wouldn't be expensive to build (it's 18 kilometers of easy terrain). I hope local politicians will put some pressure on the central government; it would be sad to lose such a chance.

Video also features C-66, which was a great temporary solution to reach Olot when Túnel de Bracons was only a dream.

High Speed Line between Antequera and Granada, due to open at the end of this year. In Antequera it connects with HSL Madrid - Málaga.

I've always loved that rocky hill near Antequera

I've never had the chance to stop and visit it, though. And it's a pity that many tourists just pass through there on their way to the coast without paying a visit to the natural park, the megalithic sites or the town of Antequera itself.

Great pictures! A-92 in Granada province is in my opinion the most scenic motorway in southern Spain. It's built on the side of Sierra Nevada mountain range, so there are almost permanent views on valleys and mountains. And everything looks so remote there.

I hope to drive A-92 one day. The desert section between Almería and Guadix seems particularly interesting.

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
I had a look at this on Google Maps and I am very surprised that this is a priority of any sort for Spain, especially in the current economic circumstances. I know that motorway construction seems to be cheap in Spain, but even so! The N122 looks like a very good road that looks like all that would be needed for the region. What sort of traffic volumes use the road at the moment?

Thanks! I found the whole infrastructure in Andalucia very good.
Here are some more pictures between Sevilla and Cadiz

Don't miss the mountain section between Granada and Guadix, it's spectacular!
