L10 won't open in 2016.

What about the central section? The one that won't open before the 22nd century at best .

Now back on topic, today the Gallur-Navarre border section of the 'World's cheapest motorway' (A-68) has been put up for tender. This section won't be as cheap as the other, as it has been estimated it will cost 82.24 M€ for 15 km, thus giving 5,48 M€/km (Still impresive, though). I've already numbered the exits it will have, as well as renumbered the exits of the Navarre section to make them consistent with the rest of A-68/N-232. So they are, in kmpost order:
(Motorway ends at km 269 near Figueruelas. Frankly, I wouldn't call that a motorway)
269 Z-525 Pedrola (East), Alcalá de Ebro
272 Pedrola (West), ZV-620 Pozuelo de Aragón (Actually CV-620, but that is a road in Valencian Community)
276 Luceni, Boquiñeni
282 Gallur (South)
(Figueruelas-Gallur section ends, Gallur-Navarre border section starts)
287 A-127 Gallur, Ejea de los Caballeros, N-122 Tarazona, Soria
293 Mallén (East)
295 Mallén (North), Cortes (South)
297 NA-5222 Cortes (West)
(Navarre border in the middle of that exit, motorway starts. For some odd reason kmposts in Navarre start in Pamplona rather than Vinaròs, the part of the last exit that is currently built is numbered 116)
304 (Current 109) NA-5210 Buñuel
306/309 (Current 107/104) NA-5200 Ribaforada, NA-3042 Ablitas
312 (Current 101) NA-5281 El Bocal
314/315 (Current 99/98) NA-134 Tudela (South), NA-5230 Fontellas
317/318 (Current 96/95) N-121-C Tudela, Tarazona, To AP-68
319/320 (Current 94/93) NA-160 Tudela, Fitero
321 (Current 92) Tudela (North)
322 (Current 91) Some industrial estates not worth mentioning.
Exit in the middle of nowhere, would be exit 89/324
327 (86) Again, more industrial things.
329 (84) AP-15 Pamplona
(Motorway ends here. Soon thereafter, N-232 crosses into Rioja and resumes kmposting from Vinaròs at km 331)

The missing link of TF-1 on the island of Tenerife opens to traffic next Friday. It runs from Adeje to Vera de Erques. This is the last segment of TF-1 that has autovía standards, the rest of the route to Santiago del Teide is a super two highway.

Tenerife is closer than ever to have an expressway-standard ringroad . I don't know which is the state of the last stretch though. A long tunnel is planned there, which is not new for the island.

Today the last section of A-54 motorway (Lugo-Santiago) that is not yet under construction has been put for tender. It will run for 16.4 km between Melide and Arzúa and has an estimated cost of 157.58 M€. It will include several viaducts.

A-38

The Cullera-Norte interchange of A-38 opens to traffic tomorrow. It consists of a 916 meter long flyover that will separate traffic to and from N-332. So far traffic to and from A-38 has been combined on one ramp.

Another example of how ridiculously cheap can be motorway construction in Spain: Last Monday the contract for duplicate all of SG-20 around Segovia was signed for 48 M€... for 15,3 km! That's right, 3.14 M€/km . It should be noted it will be divided into two sections, one from A-601 to near CL-601, and another to N-110. In MichiH style, it would be noted as follows:
SG20: Segovia-North - Segovia-East 8.4 km (ca. March 2016 to ?) - ? - map
SG20: Segovia-East - Segovia-West 7.1 km (ca. March 2016 to ?) - ? - map


In other news:
A27: Valls-North – Valls-South 5.0km (? to 18th December 2015) – ? – map

This has been confirmed to be opening tomorrow.

The reason of this cost is that they only have to build one carriageway. SG-20 is already a grade-separated, two-lane expressway, so they have to acquire no land. However, I guess they'll have to rebuild the interchanges. There aren't many of them anyway.

Still waiting for the reactivation of the works of A-38 South of there. IMO this is one of the few places where A-38 makes sense, because AP-7 is too far away from Sueca and Cullera.

In regard to the orange question mark, this sounds like what SEITT has slugged as "Variante de Valls" with an implied advertising date in 2007.

http://www.seitt.es/SEITT/LANG_CASTE...ACIONES_OBRAS/

I would really like to see the proyectos for all of these contracts, but SEITT didn't start uploading them until 2008.

Next year, if this is going to inaugurate the highway, AG-55, between Carballo and Berdoias. That coincides with the elections of the Galician Government (Xunta de Galicia) in October 2016.
Exactly, as Andrex1986 says, what will open on December 23 is this:

By the way, MichiH, you could also include on your list this opening (December 18, 2015):

It's a 7 km motorway connecting the southern end of TF-1 with the previously opened 2+1 section of the insular ring road.

NEWS:

The Spanish government has approved the project of a new motorway in Murcia, southeastern Spain. It consists of a 22.1 km link connecting A-30 with A-7 and MU-30 west of Murcia. It will greatly reduce traffic congestion, as A-30 traffic going from Albacete to Cartagena will be diverted towards the new motorway and therefore the current common section of A-7 and A-30 north of Murcia will see less traffic.

In the link you can see a map of the new section:

I'm surprised they did not open that many motorways in the 2-3 weeks before the elections. Most were opened before that time. Maybe they saved some projects to open, anticipating a new election if they can't form a government out of yesterday's outcome? Can we expect more motorway inauguration ceremonies?

Opening ceremonies of that kind are forbidden by law in Spain during the 60 days before any elections. That's why you saw so many openings in October (two months before these elections) and in March (two months before regional and local elections).

It's still possible to put motorways into service during this period of time before the elections, but without any opening ceremony. Of course politicians prefer the first option.

However there have been some openings in the last few days, but only where opening before the end of October was not technically possible (e.g. the third section of A-27).

I haven't added it to my list because...

The final ring road section b/n Santiago del Teide and Erjos has a 6km tunnel which costs 400 million € (map). It's not yet u/c caused by lack of funding. Source (2).

The 2nd article (in German) contains a pic. It looks motorway/expressway-like but not all the way on OSM....

Should I add the two sections to my list?

But I guess you're rith, Erques - Adeje does also feature 2 carriageways a 2 lanes. According to Google satellite images it has a width of about 25m.

TF1: Vera de Erques – Adeje 7km (? to 18th December 2015) – ? – map

Exactly. While the section that opened earlier this year (Santiago del Teide - Vera de Erques, 14.5 km) was just an express road, with 2+1 sections and a small 2+2 tunnel, the section that opened last week (Vera de Erques – Adeje, 7 km) has full motorway standards.

What is the deal with A-78 and A-79 near Elche / Alicante? Apparently these numbers were designated by Fomento, probably around the time that they were upgraded to four lanes (2007).

A-78 is not signed anymore. I guess it's possible it may still be designated as such in documents of Fomento? It's signed as N-340 and doesn't have autovía status.

A-79 is still signed. It is a four-lane road with large roundabouts, and also doesn't have autovía status. The speed limit is 100 km/h, the road even has shoulders. It has been widened around 2007, the right-of-way was expanded dramatically from a simple two-laner to a four-lane road with shoulders and parallel roads. Did they built this in anticipation of large-scale urban developments? Right now A-79 serves only some peripheral areas and an oil storage plant. The road doesn't seem to be designed as a future autovía despite the wide cross-section, there has been no space preserved for interchanges.

Several new sections have been put for tender last week: The last section of the new Granada bypass, A-44, from Las Gabias to Alhendín; the Albacete southern bypass, part of A-32; and a new ramp from A-3 to V-30 near Valencia. A couple of other projects have been approved: the Northwest arc of Murcia, a long demanded motorway that will relieve traffic on the A-7/A-30 concurrency; and the duplication of N-338 near Alicante, that upon its completion will have yet another prefix: AA-11!

Strangely enough, A-78 is still in the recent road law and defined as Elche/Elx to Crevillent. For some reason they have hidden it. As for A-79, it is even weirder: It is defined as Elche/Elx to Alicante/Alacant parkway, however part of it was built as a regional road and numbered CV-86. That section doesn't have parallel roads (or frontage roads as they say in the USA).
