Is there a table with all traffic restrictions on tunnels between Spain and France?

While researching CV-864, which turns out to be the same road as EL-20 around Elche, I found this.

It doesn't seem an accident, I don't get exactly what is this... maybe police control looking for drug's trafficant?

There are only two international tunnels, both in Aragón

- Somport tunnel
https://www.google.es/maps/place/228...7c3d924b46e1d4

Free pass for cars (speed limit 60-80 and strongly controlled) and for freight there are five categories. Lower one can make joining all trucks together and crossing it with a fire brigade car. Strongest one is allowed only one hour whils night (or choosing via the Somport pass) and traffic will be cut while the freight is inside


- Bielsa tunnel
https://www.google.es/maps/place/Bie...20ca4ed32fd72e

Honestly, I do not know now..... after French controls they close 6:00 to 22:00 (and there were four hours without French police controls but Spanish police instead).

AFAIK, nowadays for cars there are no restrictions and for trucks only in one direction at the same time. They have set detectors to start with air fans before the truck arrive and it saves several minutes (average 7 minutes delay to cross it)



The next longest tunnels aren't international

Speaking of CV-864, it's also the number of the road I took to reach the Ecce Homo last Sunday. In this case CV stands for 'Camino Vecinal', not 'Comunitat Valenciana'. To avoid any confusion, I refer to that road as ZV-864, Z because it's located in Zaragoza province. Yet another example of silly Spanish road numbering.

@CNGL, how much do people respect, or not. the "dual speed limit" in Zaragoza, 50km/h on left lane, 50km/h on left lane of major boulevards?

Apparently, people in Fomento have changed their mind:

Fomento descarta financiar el tramo inicial de la A-12 mediante el ‘modelo alemán’, con el que todos los gastos de la obra corren por cuenta del contratista hasta la entrega de la obra, y opta por la licitación convencional, según han confirmado fuentes del Ministerio.

Does the road number appear in directional signs? In Burgos and Soria, where that awkward AB-C-1234 system is used, the signs only show the names of the villages. Fortunately.

They appear in directional signage, but don't have kmposts (A notable exception being CV/ZV-302 Ariza-Sisamon, which is fully signed). But, as opposed to what you said, Soria provincial routes (SO-P-xxxx) are fully signed. In Huesca we still have the HU-V-xxxx system, fortunately those roads stay unsigned.

Those confusing road names are the names of provincial roads (roads of provincial authorities). And the name AA-V-XXXX and AA-P-XXXX are the older names of those roads.

In the majority of provinces that maintain those road names aren't signed.

The curiosity is how are named. Its number is based on the XX-YYY (local road) that are near it. In Castile and Leon you notice that the provincial roads and regional roads have the same number.

A lot of provinces have changed its road system and stop using all those letters.

Driving through A-8, AP-68 and other secondary roads between Bilbao, Santurtzi's Port and Tertanga, a little village near Orduña.

A-66 Zamora - Benavente

Some photos of A-66 between Zamora and Benavente. I drove on this stretch just a few weeks after it opened to traffic. It was the final segment of the 800 kilometer long 'Route 66' to open from Gijón to Sevilla.

Traffic volumes were extraordinarily low on this stretch, which is surprising given the fact that it is a major route between large cities and autonomous communities.

Awesome I would not be surprised to see low AADT figures given the fact that this is one of Spain's most sparsely populated areas. Even A-7 in Almería province, which is a vital corridor for transport, looks empty when it veers away from N-340.

This morning I could take some pictures of the A-12 (Pamplona-Logroño-Burgos) from a vantage point. There is a sort of "mountain" pass from which you can see the Sierra de La Demanda. Every time I pass through there I can't help gazing at the snow-capped mountains, so I decided to take some pictures before the snow melts completely.

The opposite direction.

Scallop shell decorations - the symbol of the Camino de Santiago.

From another point: Nájera in the background. And, of course, a ubiquitous Citroën C15. They're as typical a part of the Rioja landscape as vineyards.

Some regional roads in the area around Grañón, near the regional border with Castilla y León.

The breast-shaped Cerro Mirabel, which is well known among those who use the N-120/A-12 between Burgos and Logroño.

Looking North from the mirador in Grañón. I took this picture because I thought that was the Pancorbo gorge (AP-1, N-I). However, it is the Foncea gorge, located some 6 km to the East. The N-120 can be seen on the lower left corner.

The N-120.

Cool interchange with AP-1.

Are there still plans to renumber A-231 León - Burgos to A-12?

A-12 has a weird kmposting: It starts in Pamplona and resets in Logrono. This is because when Fomento renumbered all its motorways, they thought Navarre would go with A-13 for what finally became an extension of A-12, leaving A-13 as an almost useless Eastern Logrono bypass which should have been numbered LO-xx instead. Thus, that exit 105 should be exit 185.

Unfortunately not, as long as it keeps maintained by the Castile and Leon government. Its number conflicts with a road in Northeastern Teruel province which is also A-231 and was numbered earlier.

Construction has started in a new section of A-73. It should be finished in 2020.

Sin embargo, para el último tramo hay asignados más de 5 millones de € este año, ¿será para pagar expropiaciones?.

Por último, posteo el estado de los tramos, que acabo de actualizar la wikipedia
