Most times you can even download the project document. However, I agree with you on the fact that it's difficult for the general public to get access to the information about the projects. Not to mention that it's almost impossible to know how the project is developing once the works have started. There's no info about which phases have been completed or what kind of problems the contractor has encountered, except for what is leaked to the local press.


Anyway, there have been other important news lately apart from the last openings:

It seems that the A-7 will be get a third lane per direction between Crevillent and Alhama de Murcia. It seems to have been divided into four stretches:

Crevillent - Orihuela/Benferri. AADT (2014): 45k-37k, length: 17 km, budget: 69.4 M€: http://fomento.es/MFOMBPrensa/Notici...a-90694f7c71f3

Orihuela/Benferri - Monteagudo. AADT: 43k, length: 16 km, budget: 87.1 M€: http://www.20minutos.es/noticia/2602...arilla-alhama/

A-7/A-30. AADT: 102k, length: 1.7km, budget: 2.5 M€: http://www.seittsa.es/SEITT/LANG_CAS...20151008-C.htm

Alcantarilla - Alhama de Murcia. AADT: 40k, length: 23.3 km, budget: 84.6 M€: http://www.20minutos.es/noticia/2602...arilla-alhama/

Also, the first junction between the A-30 and the A-7 will be modified: http://www.fomento.gob.es/MFOM/LANG_...33-MU-5970.htm



Another stretch of Autovía that will get a third lane is the A-62 between Venta de Baños (junction with the A-67) and Tordesillas (junction with the A-6 and A-11):

Venta de Baños - Dueñas. AADT: 27k (20% truck share), lenght: 11.5 km, estimated budget: 42.8 M€. It includes a new allignment around Dueñas: http://fomento.es/MFOMBPrensa/Notici...3-3e553c66c271

Simancas - Tordesillas. AADT: 34k, lenght: 10.5 km, estimated budget: 47.2 M€: http://fomento.es/MFOMBPrensa/Notici...7-c0faf651b7a3
These (A-7 and A-62) are the most congested intercity motorways in Spain. They've been talked about in this thread several times. Glad something is finally being done. The third lane to Orihuela is being put to public information, which means works will be tendered soon. As for A-62, projects are in earlier stages. Hope the next government doesn't bring this plans to a halt.

I found a press release about a N-435 bypass of Beas and Trigueros near Huelva (map) but I'm not sure if it's expressway standard?!?! If I got it right, works have been started or will be started soon?!

Actually works have not been started, but restarted. Works were first tendered in 2011, but I haven't found why didn't they finish. The press release says this is going to be a 2-lane, single-carriageway road with grade-separated interchanges. So I guess it doesn't fit in your list

According with the link is not only 1,5km, but 4,8, so this section arrive until the limit between La Rinconada and Alcalá del Río municipalities.

The A-8009 project is not yet complete, the central viaduct that links the northern and southern segment has yet to be constructed. The southern segment effectively extends the autovía just 1.5 km. There is also a 500 m northern segment that ends at a roundabout. A viaduct is planned between those segments. And then there is the two-lane link road from A-8009 to A-8004 north of San José de La Rinconada.

Are you sure? I live in Sevilla and I think the bridge is constructed. Anyway, I will try to go to La Rinconada for being sure about it.

Unfortunately construction of the viaduct linking the northern and southern sections has not started. Therefore the current autovía will be extended only 1.5 km to the roundabout you see in the image.

Apparently, it hasn't even started:

A esa altura, se divisan dos grandes montículos de tierra, a un kilómetro de distancia entre ellos y que, involuntariamente, marcan el espacio donde iría, en una tercera fase –aún por adjudicar– el viaducto que sobrepasará los terrenos de Pago de Enmedio y conectarán con el resto de localidades beneficiadas por el vial metropolitano, caso de Alcalá del Río o Brenes. Una actuación que queda postergada a tiempos de una mayor disponibilidad económica.

The construction of R-1 as an autovía has been revived: http://www.fomento.gob.es/MFOMBPrens...3-f25e77b1e708

It will be a 24 kilometer motorway with a 120 km/h speed limit that runs from M-12 to A-1 at El Molar. The projected cost is € 220 million.

If I got it right, a FS will be started (or is already finished)!? The motorway should feature 2x2 lanes with a wide median so that a future 2x3 widening would be possible.

Yes, the press release says that a feasibility study has just been started. If the motorway was to be given the green light, then a Declaración de Impacto Ambiental would have to be issued, so that the design (proyecto) could be tendered. Then would come the tendering of the construction. All in all, minimum 5 years, and this if everything goes smooth as silk -which is never the case in Spain since funding is cut every now and then .

I personally think that a widening of A-1 should be enough, but it's Madrid after all -European Dubai.

Chris... A-1, not R-1

This is, untolled. It is a new way for A-1 that will replace current one which goes through a high density area.

I have glanced regional Madrid threads and found more info

There is a section of road in Spain where you can legally go at 200 km/h...




























Well, just apparently. I had already reported that A-2 is shorter than signposted, and last Sunday returning from Teruel (if it exists at all) I detoured just to drive again my favorite road, the road to Madrid. A quick look at the map showed that there is a point A-2 bypasses a rather curvy section of old N-II East of Calatayud. And so I measured that section and found that in the section from kmpost 244 to kmpost 255 there are only 7.2 km. I also found that kmposts in that part were only 600 meters apart (What I've called the 'Aluenda kilometer'). So at 120 km/h, you will be going 3 and 1/3 apparent kilometers in a minute, thus giving an apparent speed of 200 km/h, while you go 2 actual kilometers as usual.

That's quite a long reflexion for such a trivial fact. I happened to read the whole post because I thought there was something interesting in all that text.

Anyway, in Spain many motorways are kilometered like the old national roads they follow -so when the motorway has a more straight alignment and thus follows a shorter route, kilometers are spaced further apart. A-2 is a good example of this. You're not supposed to calculate your speed based on the kilometer posts -the Spanish driving code says so.

When going on road by bike with the odometer activated, I have discovered thousands of fails like that. Any of them is as big as in A-2, but in all the motorways (not highways) around Sevilla, there's not a kilometer post colocated with less error than 40 meters, and some of them has an error of more than 100 meters.

Quite easy... I always remember a mileage sign in Calatayud pointing Zaragoza on 89 km away

New motorways, direct way and so on but always 89 km

(today, city has enlarge so much since A-2 was opened that it is hard to know exact distance Calatayud-Zaragoza)

A-44 Granada

Did you drive all the way to Motril, Chris?

I really loved that road back in February - traffic was very light, the mountains were imposing and Almunecar was beautiful in the late afternoon sun.
