Galicia has several vías rápidas and is still constructing new ones.

Now I see this...

This is what stands now:

A7-45 by European Roads, on Flickr

Another example of re-kmposting is near me: A-23 North of Zaragoza originally had N-330 kmposts (and thus exit numbers in the 500s), but this was changed in 2008 to match those South of Zaragoza.

Former Via Rapida remains with the same conditions indeed.

But there is no longer signals for them (they had green signals instead of blue for motorways or white for roads)

No. They still have green signage (in Galicia). And new vías rápidas are still being built with these signs (like "Vía Ártabra" in A Coruña).

Some other older vías rápidas in other parts of Spain have still green signage, like the spurs of C-25 in Manresa, Vic and Girona. But I guess these are going to be gradually phased out.

New vías rápidas in Catalonia (e.g. C-37 + C-15 between Manresa and Vilafranca del Penedès or C-37 between Vic and Olot) have conventional road signs, though.

A little off the beaten path video. The road up to Peña de Francia (1727 m) in southern Salamanca province.

I did not originally plan to go there, I was planning on staying two nights in Portugal but it was very hot there so I decided to go to some higher mountains for refreshment. I was planning to follow A-66 north anyway, so I was browsing on my Michelin atlas to see if there were any interesting areas not too far away. I found this. I would have never found this with a GPS.

The draft of the 2016 burget for the Spanish central government has been announced today.

Regarding road infrastructure, the main objectives can be read (in Spanish) here:
-New road infrastructure: http://www.sepg.pap.minhap.gob.es/Pr..._1453B_C_1.PDF
-Road maintenance: http://www.sepg.pap.minhap.gob.es/Pr..._1453C_C_1.PDF

I made a list of the main road works that are expected to begin/continue/finish from this point to the end of the next year. The number next to the stretch is the quantity in Millions of Euros. "Peaje en sombra" means shadow toll.

It seems that finally the construction of the tunnels under the Guadalquivir river south of Sevilla will start next year. There are 32.6 Millions budgeted for the eastbound tunnels and 9.7 for the westbound ones.

This means we'll also be getting a lot of motorway openings along 2016 and 2017. As usual, there are some "ghost" provisions that will not be used (i.e. the €3 million for A-27 between Valls and Montblanc, which should include a tunnel that noone wants to build due to geological risks). But it's very good news overall. This leaves almost no U/C motorway unattended.

When I said that the next general elections in Spain are going to be a serious game changer when it comes to road infrastructure, I wasn't joking. Yes both dominating political parties (PP and PSOE) have always favored major road projects, but the political landscape in Spain is changing radically due to new coalitions, which have mostly absorbed the Greens, overthrowing the traditional parties and winning in a lot of cities and towns in the last local elections. This means that the Greens are going to be in many governments, and that is a serious threat to new roads and motorways. Here's one of the first signs of it:

http://www.ara.cat/societat/Quart-Ci...405659477.html

(Full text is available here. I'm too lazy to translate the whole thing).

The socialist-ruled city of Sabadell had always backed "Quart Cinturó" (B-40), a motorway that would go from Martorell to Mataró through Terrassa, Sabadell and Granollers, and urban planning reflects this mentality -the right-of-way, of this motorway proposed in the 1970s, has always been clear. However, this may be going to change since the new local government in charge includes a long-time activist against the motorway (who will be mayor in 2017 as the agreement reached by the coalition says).

As usual, his point oversimplifies the purpose of the project: it's not just another motorway between Terrassa and Sabadell, it's a road that will connect many other towns around both cities (such as Matadepera or Castellar del Vallès) that now have difficult access to the existing motorways and now decent connections between each others. If they manage to stop B-40 (which is as close as waiting for Fomento to tender the project), other existing road projects in the area will be rendered useless, i.e. C-58c, which needs B-40 to fulfil the whole of its purpose (connecting roads radiating from Sabadell), or the existing stretches of B-40. And drivers going to the big industrial areas in Castellar del Vallès, for example, will still have to cross Sabadell and bear with the heavy congestion in Gran Via, the city's urban expressway (and I wonder how long will it last, as urban expressways are the antichrist of the Greens). The alternate mesures he's proposing (a "possible" additional lane in C-58) will do nothing to ease traffic North of Sabadell, an area that has grown a lot in the last 25 years.

This is one of the dangers of postponing controversial road projects year after year -some day, some local opposition will gather enough momentum to cancel it. I just hope that the new central Government, whatever color it is, manages to reach an agreement with the local one and B-40 sees the light -it's by far the most needed road project in Barcelona metro area.

A-23 Caldearenas-Lanave may be 4,5 nearer than 40,5

Ok I get it

I guess it includes the longest tunnel (3 km or so) in this case

what determines the background color of a snippet indicating a road
when is yellow and when is red used?

why the Autovia 7 is signed over a blue snippet but Autovia 92 over a yellow snippet?

A92 is Andalucia Road 92 ( it is a 'state' or 'community' motorway not a national motorway) and A7 is a national motorway.

To confuse people more both are present in Andalucia. There are more A ( Andalucia) Motorways in Andalucia than A ( National Spanish) motorways as well.

To really confuse people B roads are in Barcelona and C roads are in Catalonia surrounding Barcelona. Many of these B and C Roads are motorways. !!!

To mega confuse people there are no B or or C road Motorways in Andalucia because Andalucia starts with A.

Hope this helps.

how this is confusing
are there " A " roads in Aragón that are not Autovia?
why not adopt a two-letter system then do establish the difference between provincial roads and national roads?

You will never consider them as a local road. People know them quite well
