It should open this year, there are updated pictures on the Spanish thread and the works look quite advanced.

In any event, the official press release from last March said it was going to open during the fall of this year:

Works here are also pretty advanced. I think it will open this year. I haven't found any press article or official source, but I saw a bit of the works from the train last week and even signaling has been installed. Both sections are going to open at the same time, as otherwise it would be a mess for traffic (it would have to use narrow streets to cross Valls in order to get to the old national road).

I wish somebody knew that... The construction of this section is progressing so slowly, it's desperating!

It's a pretty awesome bridge. I saw it from a distance this year when I drove across A-4.

These pictures are already old -they have done much of the earthworks next to AP-7, including the construction of a new auxiliary road. The central section of the roadway (the one between both AP-7 carriageways) is now ready to be paved, as well as the embankments for the ramps that climb to both viaducts from A-2. Definitely not going to be ready for this year's elections, but they'll finish the whole thing soon after.

Last summer I got small news about FV-2

There will be a new motorway from Corralejo to Morro Jable but instead of near the coast it will run by the middle of the island. In the southern side there is no other way that current FV-2 but it is supposed to pass by Antigua and not by Puerto del Rosario.

I can state that in northern side they have made more works... but very slow.

It does look spectacular, but a bit weird too with it being so much higher than the banks. I missed it by less than a year it seems. Was in Cadiz with a car in June...

Why are there 2 extra lanes in the central reservation? Is this some sort of tidal flow system?

There appears to be a local two-lane road across the bridge as well.

I've seen it quoted somewhere that there is also a tramway across the bridge?

The vertical clearance of the Constitution of 1812 Bridge is 69 m. It is the second highest in the world after the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge in New York. I guess it is justified by the shipyards located in the bay. Furthermore, the bridge has a practicable section which can be remove if those 69 m are not enough. You never know what they can build in the shipayrds!

Anyway, the two extra separated lanes are supposedly reserved for public transportation, by now, just buses.

Like saw in the photo, it is 2+2+1+1: 2 for traffic Cádiz-Puerto Real, 2 for traffic Puerto Real-Cádiz, 1 for public transport Cádiz-Puerto Real, 1 for public transport Puerto Real-Cádiz.

The 1+1 lanes for public traffic are planned to be a tramway in the future... but I wouldn't trust on it.

You gotta be careful with your speed there -that stretch has some of the longest straights in any Spanish motorway, and Guardia Civil is often watching them. You really don't notice how fast you're going, I recall having to slow down after seeing 150 km/h in my speedo -and I never go past 130 in the conditions I was driving through (heavy rain).

Another thing that's a bit awkward is putting all Andalusian province capitals (but one) in the signs. It's a political thing, made to showcase the regional importance of A-92 (which was built by the Andalusian regional government, something you have reminders of in every single sign of the damn motorway). But it's confusing for drivers; one or two control cities would be enough.

Yeah, that's right. It is pretty odd, useless and out-of-standard at all. I would say this use of signage for symbolic/political meanings is pretty unique in Spain.

However, the signs marking the administration who has built the infrastructure are becoming more and more common in Spanish roads. The last absurd decision in this sense has been the redesign of Madrid regional roads number boxes including an exclusive M with the symbol of the autonomous community...
