@Crhis:
Ah, ok!
Nowadays people can use N-I to go from France to Vitoria. The only problem it's that it's a substandard autovia(the Alsasua to S. Sebastian stretch).
I've already gone to France many times using the AP-68 and the A-8, via Bilbao, instead of the N-I.
But with the the oppening of the AP-1 from Vitoria to Eibar(A-8), that will no longer be needed, as the AP-1 will be shorter (even shorter than the N-I) and a very good motorway.

Thanks for the map Btxr_art!

It's stunning. Almería has become a pretty wealthy region with those greenhouses and it has a large amount of inmigrants working there

Some days ago amsie posted some pics from A7 in Almeria, between Adra and Albuñol. It's really odd to see a new Spanish motorway built using concrete.

You are always welcome in the Spanish forum

Notice Spanish uses two different verbs for 'to be': 'ser' and 'estar'.

He is from Zwolle--> Él ES de Zwolle. (SER)
He is in Zwolle--> Él ESTÁ en Zwolle. (ESTAR)

So the correct sentence would be: La entera región está llena de invernaderos. It's a typical mistake among foreigners.

Your progress is awesome though. How many languages can you read?

I have some sense for languages

I can read most of what is written on Spanish wikipedia. I can also read French, German, English, Danish and i know how to translate Cyrillic into Latin letters.

Portuguese also looks a bit like Spanish, so i can read a bit of Portuguese wikipedia too.

GC-2 highway, in the north of Gran Canaria island. Comments are in Spanish, but he mainly says that there are lots of curves because of the terrain, the maximum speed allowed is only 80-100 km/h and the highway runs between the sea and the mountains.

Casi siempre se circula al lado del mar, y entre pequeños acantilados.

Todavía dentro del casco urbano de la Ciudad

Puente El Rincón

Aquí ya empiezan las curvas; bandas sonoras, señalización alta visibilidad
[IMG][/IMG]

Como siempre, hubo que esperar a los accidentes mortales y la caída de coches al mar para poner unas barreras de hormigón en condiciones
[IMG][/IMG]

En este tramo se ganó terreno al mar para la construcción de la vía.
[IMG][/IMG]

En muchos tramos, la vía de entrada está a un nivel superior que la de salida
[IMG][/IMG]

Aquí se acaba la autovía, en sentido norte. Las retenciones en hora punta son desesperantes. Ahora están haciendo obras para desdoblar la carretera, parches hasta el proyecto definitivo de la ampliación de la autovía.
[IMG][/IMG]

Conexión con la zona urbana de Las Palmas y la GC-23/GC-3.
[IMG][/IMG]

Túnel Julio Luengo, con 1160 m de longitud, que en horas punta se encuentra colapsado de principio a fin.

The GC-2 highway looks like a very nice ride.


Spain must be the country with most highway construction in Europe at the moment, right?

Yes, by far.

What will the number be of this circunvalación of Málaga? AP-7? (which would fit into the idea of 2 parallel motorways along the Mediterranean coast, the A-7 and AP-7)

I heard traffic in Málaga is madness.

I found several great pics of the A-67 (U/C) in the Asturias/Cantabria Spanish subforum. Thanks to the forummers who took them, they're simply amazing! Just look at this beatiful viaduct:



You can find all the pics here:

It will be toll-free, so MA-30 I guess.
PS: Notice the AP-46 "Autopista de las Pedrizas". A new toll motorway parallel to the A-45 (which has lots of traffic too).

Yes, I've been there very few times, but all those times there was a traffic jam in the A-7, especially the stretch between A-357 and AP-7 (East). It took me about 30 min to cover those 4 km. Also 20 min when going out from Málaga in Avenida de Andalucía (this is the name of the A-357, inside the city). But it was in summer and there were lots of tourists, so probably the traffic is better during the winter.
