I've been using a dashcam for a year and a half and never had any kind of trouble. I've encountered several police controls and have never been told to pull over. I'm not an expert on the Spanish law, so I can't tell much apart from my own experience.

Anyway, I've heard stories about cyclists using videos as piece of evidence against drivers not leaving enough safety distance. I've also remember reading a piece of news about bikers being fined for mounting a cam onto their helmet with a suction pad, which is unsafe according to the authorities, but as long as you keep the dashcam inside your car, I don't think that'll be a problem.

Fomento has approved the rebuilding of two interchanges, which are currently just roundabouts:

A-62/A-66 in Salamanca (31 M€): https://www.google.es/maps/@40.95571.../data=!3m1!1e3

A-7/A-1051 in Roquetas de Mar (9 M€): https://www.google.es/maps/@36.81888.../data=!3m1!1e3

They will also enlarge a 3.8 km long stretch of the A-66 around Oviedo from 2x2 to 2x3. AADT is 54,000 vpd. Estimated cost is 20.5 M€.: https://www.google.es/maps/dir/43.41...e3!4m2!4m1!3e0

ANWB may not have deep knowledge of the Spanish law and disadvise it just in case someone got in trouble. I've never had any problem with using a camera (not a dashcam, but an actual handheld camera mounted on the windshield with a suction cup), even when being checked by the police.

What is indeed true is that filming (or taking pictures of) the police is illegal in Spain and you may be fined for doing it. However, this law is extremely difficult to enforce and I've yet to heard about anyone having any trouble because of that.

Have travelled on AP-68. I was going to take off at Logroño but they adviced works for junction with A-68/A-12. Therefore.... for my destination I preferred to take Agoncillo exit, avoid radars and avoid to pay for traveling at 60 km/h only

This is an amazing waste of money, not for the reformulation itself, but if we think that this interchange was opened in 2006. At the time A-62 into Salamanca was completed and A-66 south of Zamora was finished or in construction. Seriously, it shouldn't have been too hard to understand that having all the north-south traffic + some of the traffic coming into the city from the west bottled in a roundabout would be complicated. I was little more than a kid at the time and even I could see that. Not to mention the A-66 S-N end in the roundabout, a lot of accidents must have happened there.

The final segment of Costera Norte in Murcia opened to traffic today. Costera Norte is a dual carriageway with roundabouts in the northern suburbs of Murcia. It's just over 13 kilometers long.

La Costera Norte comunica con la autovía del Mediterráneo (A-7) y la autovía Murcia-Cartagena (A-30), se han invertido 34,6 millones de euros en 12 tramos con un total de 13,3 kilómetros

I just found in a press article the exact lengths of both sections. It's not a big change, but I know you guys always want to have the most accurate data.

A1051: El Parador de las Hortichuelas-South – Las Losas 2.2km (2011 to Late July 2016) – ? – map
2.5km

A1051: Las Losas – Cortijos de Marin 5.2km (2011 to Late 2017) – ? – map
4.9km


By the way, no changes on the expected opening date of the first section:

Quote:
La Consejería de Fomento y Vivienda de la Junta de Andalucía ha concluido el extendido de la capa intermedia de aglomerado en todo el tronco del tramo de la Variante de Roquetas de Mar (Almería) que discurre desde el enlace de Las Losas hasta el centro comercial Gran Plaza, de 2,5 kilómetros de longitud lineal, y cuya apertura al tráfico está prevista a finales del presente mes de julio. Se trata de la capa intermedia previa a la de rodadura final, que posibilita su puesta en servicio.

AG-14 Carballo - Baio in Galicia is planned to open on 27 July: http://www.lavozdegalicia.es/noticia...07C12C4992.htm

This is ahead of the previous schedule of October 2016.

I think I said nothing.

Have seen some tiny works on N-232 to upgrade to A-68 between near Pedrola and near Luceni.

AG-55, not AG-14

El Ideal Gallego reports that the Autovía de la Costa da Morte will be numbered AG-55 after all. Earlier government releases referred to AG-14 as the road number for the motorway.

It makes sense. Naming the new section AG-14 would have been a mistake.

But after all I wasn't wrong when suggesting that the different naming had something to do with the fact that the new section was going to be toll free (in contrast with the old tolled section). Some residents now claim that the new section of motorway being called AG-55 means that sooner or loter toll booths will be installed.

I guess MichiH will have to edit his Spanish list again.

SC-20 Santiago de Compostela

The last grade-separated interchange along SC-20 was officially inaugurated today. They replaced an at-grade roundabout with an underpass. The project cost was € 6 million. Approximately 40,000 vehicles per day pass through here.

Here it is seen earlier in July when one lane in each direction was operational:

2 km of completed but unopened CM-43 motorway near Añover de Tajo (province of Toledo) will be opened in April 2017, once a connection with regional road CM-4001 is built.

This 2x2 motorway section has been completed since 2011, but as it ends in the middle of nowhere it has remained closed since then. The construction of a 1 km section of conventional road between the current end of the motorway and CM-4001 will therefore enable the use of those last 2 km of motorway. Works on that road started in June 2016 and are supposed to last 10 months.

In the future, CM-43 will be connected to A-40, once the latter is built between Toledo and Ocaña.

https://www.google.es/maps/@39.97962.../data=!3m1!1e3

In contrast, works of the 12 km section of CM-41 between Illescas and Borox continues suspended. In fact, I just realized this motorway project exists checking on Google Earth. It's one of those absurd motorways planned in Spain during the real estate bubble times. If ever completed, it should connect with A-4 north of Aranjuez, becoming a kind of "M-60". In that case, A-40 between Maqueda and Tarancón would be "M-70".

It seems that the 1km might have motorway standard too: http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=39...30532;0;253877 .

The press article (in Spanish) I've linked says that the 1 km road will be a conventional 1+2 road (with just an extra northbound lane for slow vehicles), with no segregated carriageways, and that the connection with CM-4001 will be just a roundabout (instead of the full interchange drawn in OSM).

I guess the whole project was originally planned as something more elaborate, with motorway standards and complex interchanges, but now they've downgraded it, just in order to bring it into service as soon and as cheaply as possible.
