Well concessions on these motorways will expire sooner or later, so it's a matter of time that they'll fulfil their purpose

concession expire don't means automatic toll removal, they can continue to be toll roads but administrated by goverment.

A-7 Algeciras

Some photos of A-7 through the city of Algeciras. It is the southern terminus of A-7, even though A-7 through the city is not entirely grade-separated.

It's very odd that it's called A-7. I don't know why they couldn't just make it N-340, there are many other non-motorway, dual-carriageway roads in Spain with a non-autovía road number.

And even there is a section of motorway near Zaragoza called... N-II! And it has white signage instead of blue .

A-7 is also signed from Estepona to Guadiaro, via the coastal route. This route has 13 roundabouts...

It seems that, six years later, works have finally restarted on that section:

Finally! Boring the tunnel was the only major work left to do there. I don't think it'll take more than 2 years to finish the whole section... if they don't stop working on it again.

What's in clear danger is the next section (Terrassa-Sabadell). The only procedure left is tendering it, but the new major of Sabadell is campaigning against it (which is really stupid since this road would take a lot of traffic out of his city), and the Declaración de Impacto Ambiental has expired and they would have to issue a new one. I don't think we'll ever see this being built unless there's a political will at all levels (state, regional and local).

And I believe that the pk still mark N-340.

I think that that Estepona-Guadiaro, Marbella-Estepona and Fuengirola-Marbella should be N-340.

Personally, I think that A-7 should have followed the pk of AP-7. In the places where AP-7 exists and has full motorway characteristics, it should get another name.

And between Alicante and Silla, A-36 and A-35 (continuation of the Almansa motorway).

News on SE-40: some changes in the project of the section Coria del Río-Almensilla has been approved by Ministerio de fomento.

Next to this section (in Almensilla) there have been works duriing all the last year, but this works already done will be completely useless without the section Almensilla-Coria del Río or even without Coria del Río-Dos Hermanas (tunnels under the river)

Quote:
Fomento aprueba definitivamente el proyecto del tramo Coria-Almensilla de la SE-40
El Ministerio de Fomento ha aprobado "definitivamente" una modificación del proyecto técnico de la autovía metropolitana SE-40, correspondiente al tramo Coria del Río (SE-660)-Almensilla (SE-648), con un "aumento de las superficies de expropiación, imposición de servidumbres y ocupación temporal", fijando finalmente en 64.615.075 euros el coste "estimado" de este tramo de la futura ronda metropolitana de Sevilla.
En concreto, y según una resolución de la Dirección General de Carreteras fechada el 29 de junio de 2015 y recogida por Europa Press, este departamento del Ministerio de Fomento acordaba entonces "aprobar provisionalmente el proyecto de trazado de la modificación número uno de las obras autovía SE-40, sector Suroeste, tramo Coria del Río (SE-660)-Almensilla (SE-648), con un presupuesto de ejecución material estimado en 64.615.075,13 euros".
Esta modificación del proyecto técnico original, según dicha resolución, deriva de "un cambio en la reposición de la Cañada Real de Medellín a Isla Mayor, respecto a la prevista en el proyecto base", si bien "también es necesario reubicar el descansadero del Pozo de la Zarza".
La modificación del proyecto base, además y como figuraba en el documento, "ocasiona un aumento de las superficies de expropiación, imposición de servidumbres y ocupación temporal tanto en fincas afectadas por el proyecto base, como a otras nuevas". Al respecto, y a efectos de las anunciadas expropiaciones, la resolución de la Dirección General de Carreteras daba cuenta de la "relación de bienes y derechos afectados" por el proyecto una vez reformulado el mismo, mencionando 36 fincas o parcelas concretas ubicadas en Palomares del Río, Coria del Río y Almensilla.
Después del correspondiente periodo de información pública y el preceptivo informe de alegaciones, el Ministerio de Fomento, a través de una resolución recogida por Europa Press, ha resuelto "aprobar el expediente de información pública y definitivamente el proyecto de trazado" del proyecto en cuestión, anunciando así la incoación del "expediente de expropiación de los terrenos afectados".

It's noticeable how the landscape differs in Andalusia: Olive trees in the North-East, Dehesa in the North-West. In fact, if it wasn't the "Ruta de la Plata", the A-66 would've been named "Autovía de la Dehesa", at least between Seville and Salamanca.

Some of those pics almost look like California from a distance, though Joshua trees look very different close.

And in the 90% of Andalusia, not only in the north east. However, the map shows the situation of "Dehesa", not olive trees.

ChrisZwolle showed the most beautiful part in my opinion of the trip Sevilla-Mérida: the part of mountain ranges (Sierra Morena is called). The rest of the trip is quite boring.

Plasencia - Béjar is also pretty nice. The Extremadura part of A-66 has a style of vegetation (sparsely populated savanna) you don't see much elsewhere. It's not like the fruit orchards of Valencia or Murcia.

Béjar - León is mostly flat Meseta with grain / wheat. Not as interesting, though the long distances with low traffic volumes are somewhat interesting if you're used to the busy motorways of the Benelux or Germany.

I wonder what the deal is of A-66 from Benavente to León. It has a much lower exit density than most other autovías. I think it was one of the first autovías designed according to autopista standards (it opened in 2003). It also features large parking areas directly along the autovía which is uncommon elsewhere along A-66 (there is one with a fuel station between Zamora and Benavente, but elsewhere you have to leave the autovía for parking and services).
