A-7 Autovía del Mediterráneo 1330km
AP-7 Autopista del Mediterráneo 1380km
A-66 Autovía Ruta de la Plata 809km

These are the longest i think.

According to my sources in 2006:

A7/AP7: 1421 km
A2/AP2: 758 km
A4/AP4: 680 km
A6/AP6: 636 km
A66/AP66: 504 km
A92: 494 km
A1/AP1: 447 km

But the pace of construction in A66 is likely the faster in the whole network, so it could be around 700-800 km nowadays.

How did you reach that number for the A92?
It links Seville to Almeria and the distance is around 400km.
Probably you've added the A92N branch (and maybe even the A92M and A92G), but that's not fair, as those are diferent freeways.

Yeah, of course it's including A92N, A92M, A92G.

I also think they are different motorways but in the report made by the Ministry of Public Works they name all them simply 'A92'.

Is the A-92 State owned, or Andalucia owned?

It's the main motorway owned by Andalucia, which started to be built because of Seville Expo1992. That's the reason why it's named A92.

Others are A381, A359....

Thanks a lot for the nice pics, Chris! Those bridges in Sevilla look amazing!

I really like the Spanish signs in autopistas and autovias, sometimes they have a lot of information but stay quite clear imo (with some exceptions like everywhere else, of course).

I see they use the same system as in Madrid when it comes to name the urban ringroad. Is that common in Spain? Does Sevilla have a SE-40 too?

I thought a SE-40 is planned to be a second ringroad. The northern side of the SE-30 has some traffic lights and (large) roundabouts.

Here you have some pictures of the works in SE-40 junction with A-4 in october:

Quote:












Thanks to Alberto Martín. http://www.sevilla21.com/foro/viewto...=227&start=450

It will be 3+3 with room enough to be expanded to 4+4. There will be four tunnels under Guadalquivir river 2+2+2+2 (which can be expanded to 3+3+3+3).

About the northern part of SE-30. It's not the "real" SE-30 but the Ronda Urbana Norte.

The real SE-30 should have been like this (in orange):

But it will be built the next year as a part of the SE-35.

It seems the SE-40 is quite far from the city centre, I've just read it will be 77 km long!

Actually the first streth of the SE40 which, if i´m not mistaken, goes from the A92 (somewhere close to Alcala de Guadaira) to the A4 close to Dos Hermanas, should be already U/C.


Well, some more pics:

End of the Ca33 when entering Cádiz from San Fernando, not a very nice view here, but a few hundred meters back this highway has one of the nicest views of the whole spanish network: on your right a sandy atlantic beach with beautiful dunes, and on your left the natural park of the Cadiz Bay. really worths the trip.

Random driving when you go out. I think it's Ibiza, so they probably encourage to take turns among friends in order not to drive drunk or druged (which is more likely on that island ) The sign It's pretty weird indeed, here in Mallorca we don't have such strange messages like that ones XD

That road looks quite ugly I guess the picture is taken after a storm mixed with Sahara sand. The road was very polemical since many people didn't want it to be built. Here you have the whole construction process: http://www.flickr.com/photos/fnogues...7594119510020/

I am just wondering, how much are gas prices in the EU per liter, in my country they are about 74 Eurocents, and in the US they are about 55 Eurocents a liter.

In the EU: between € 1,0 in cheaper countries to € 1,50 in the Netherlands for instance.
