Torke, Thank you so much for showing us this. I have often wondered what Madrid was like, and you have shown me a great deal that I have not been able to find anywhere else.
Naturally, most sites only show the "tourist stuff", museums, churches, festivals, etc. You have brought the city of Madrid to life for me, and made it real.
Perhaps, one day, if I am very fortunate, I'll be able to visit there.
Your photos have made certain that I want to visit Madrid.

Anyway, does someone have some context or explaination of what's driving this huge boom in freeways? Wikipedia doesn't have a single thing to say about Madrid's roads, believe it or not, and I can't find much else on the net, so any comments from locals or people in the know, you're welcome.

[IMG][/IMG]

I mean, jesus christ, just south-east of the city they have 9 full on interchanges covering an area that appears to be practically empty, if i'm missing something I would love to know.

Edit: Oh, nice forums here by the way, glad I found 'em.

The city of Madrid has a very good freeway system that incorporates well with the city's surface streets and highways. To add to this, Madrid's metro system is awesome!! Very well thought out....I remember on my last trip I forgot to purchase some items close to the Bull Ring on which was quite a ways by car so being by the palace..I walked a couple of blocks..took the metro [transfered twice] and was there within minutes....did the same thing and got back to the hotel within forty minutes. Incredibly efficient! The freeway system was also very well designed and of course worked quite well throughout the day with the exception of certain peak hours which is normal. They have started to expand Athens' metro system now...as well as the highway system...though most cities would wish to have a system like Madrid's!

El fichero ocupa como 7 megas asi que os aconsejo que uséis el boton derecho y "guardar como", en el siguiente link:

El coste estimado de construcción será de unos 1.500 M€. En el plano se ve también el previsible trazado de la M-50 soterrada por el Monte de El Pardo, y cuyo estudio también se licitó.

But this project is not the only one madrid has, there're THOUSANDS..the city is actually being built again, incredible!

All the historic center is being remodelated, the greatest museums rebuilt, new financial districts raised, new quarters, new avenues, new parks, new metro and train stations........thousands......

If i can i'll post all i find about this, and i ask for everyone, specially spaniards, to get all the information they can from the spanish forum (a huge forum)
Whatever you wanna know about spain and madrid is in FORO DE RASCACIELOS ESPAÑOLES forum ( bottom of the website)

Muy interesante, sobre todo muy inovador lo que son los puentes peatonales y el paseo de las flores.
Se ve muy interesante ese arco en la plaza real, entre el palacio real y la catedral, a mi me encanto, solo que no se lo que opine la gente de insertar ese elemento en la plaza.
En cuanto al resto de parques y vialidades, mis respetos para Madrid, esto le dara una cara nueva a la ciudad.

Here you have a video collection from the promotional DVD which has been edited by the Madrid Council.

http://www.munimadrid.es/Principal/E...s1/calle30.htm

I specially recommend you to watch the "Proyecto Madrid Rio" video, it's about the works along River Manzanares; and "Bypass Sur" video, about the construction of a 3km-tunnel to reduce surface traffic.
