No. "B" in B-23 comes from Barcelona. Each province in Spain has a one or two letter code that is used in the naming of its State-owned urban motorways (accesses or bypasses).

In this particular case, B-23 already existed between AP-7 and Barcelona (Avinguda Diagonal), but the first 4 km were weirdly signposted as AP-2 (in the past, that section of AP-2 together with the whole of B-23 used to be A-2) due to administrative issues (that short AP-2 section was part of the AP-7 toll motorway concession, even though it wasn't a tolled section for traffic bound for Girona, only traffic bound for Tarragona had to pay tolls afterward in Martorell toll plaza or in any southern AP-7 toll plaza for that short section).

So now basically everything has been simplified, and from AP-7 to Barcelona a single name (B-23) will be used for that motorway.

Each city . Some provinces have more than one city code, such as Pontevedra (PO and VG) and Asturias (AI, O and GI). There's also a PT-10 in Puertollano, which belongs to Ciudad Real province.

You're right. Elche, Cartagena, Ferrol and Santiago de Compostela also have their own city code despite not being provincial capitals.

But it's also true that there are some cases where a single provincial code is used in smaller cities besides the capital, such as GR-14 and GR-16 in Motril or CA-34 in La Línea de la Concepción.

GJ . GI would be used around Girona. Not to mention Guipuscoa also uses GI.

A-2 Girona

Some photos of southbound A-2 near Girona. It opened to traffic in 2007.



1. A-2 carries a decent amount of traffic, as it is a popular untolled route into Girona.

A-2 Girona-1 by European Roads, on Flickr

2. A 'vía de servicio' or service road.

A-2 Girona-3 by European Roads, on Flickr

3. N-156 is a very short connector to the airport of Girona.

A-2 Girona-4 by European Roads, on Flickr

4. Traffic can also access C-25 to the east, which is a two-lane road. C-25 is an autovía west of A-2, all the way to Lleida.

A-2 Girona-5 by European Roads, on Flickr

5.

A-2 Girona-6 by European Roads, on Flickr

6.

A-2 Girona-7 by European Roads, on Flickr

7. The C-25 interchange.

A-2 Girona-9 by European Roads, on Flickr

8. C-25 is an untolled motorway (shadow tolls) to Lleida. It's the shortest route from Girona to Lleida, and since its twinning also the fastest and safest, so there is no need to drive via Barcelona anymore. Yet traffic volumes on C-25 are quite low.

Curious to see signals 90 km away from Barcelona.

I say it because, prior to Olympics, they signaled a lot of roads going to Barcelona when 92 km exactly remained and in signal just said "Barcelona 92" (and sometimes name of road)

Only regarding motorways, you can find those signs in AP-2 and AP-7. But the two km points of A-2 exactly 92 km away from Barcelona hadn't been built in 1992.

Obviously a C road in Spain. It looks just like an A road.

A-14 Alguaire - Almenar

Some photos of the (in)famous A-14 north of Lleida. It's currently a 7 kilometer stretch of autovía. It opened to traffic in 2012, the average traffic amounts to 560 vehicles per day. I did not see any other vehicle on it.

1. From the Alguaire interchange.

A-14 Alguaire - Almenar-1 by European Roads, on Flickr

2.

A-14 Alguaire - Almenar-2 by European Roads, on Flickr

3. Red de Carreteras del Estado. Or in English, the network of state highways.

A-14 Alguaire - Almenar-3 by European Roads, on Flickr

4. The autovía ends after 7 km. There are only two interchanges in use so far.

A-14 Alguaire - Almenar-4 by European Roads, on Flickr

5. A-14 runs across a plateau, with a view of the Pyrenees.

A-14 Alguaire - Almenar-5 by European Roads, on Flickr

6. A-14 runs at a plateau which is about 100 meters higher than N-230. Traffic to and from A-14 needs to climb up the plateau. The bypass of Almenar has some serious engineering in respect to slopes, it's not some kind of quickly built temporary access road. It's numbered A14R2.

With A-14 between A-2 and Almenar opening by the end of this year, this will cease to be a semi-abandoned road and drivers will be spared 15 or so roundabouts in N-230.

Alguaire airport, however, is very likely to remain unused.

A C road in Catalonia, I would say. C roads in the rest of Spain (in the regions where they exist) are just normal roads.

By the way, after being suspended since 2010, it seems works of A-27 between Valls and Montblanc are finally going to be restarted soon!

According to a press article, works on the Fontscaldes viaduct are going to be resumed next month while boring of the 1.6 km Lilla tunnel will start in January next year.

There is a very large viaduct between Bergara and Arrasate, but it is part of the Basque Y railroad. It spans the whole valley. Will the GI-632 autovía tie in to AP-1 near that viaduct? There are currently construction sites west of the Antzuola exit, but not all the way to AP-1.

I took some photos of the GI-632 bridges near Antzuola.

1. The end of the current GI-632 autovía at Antzuola.

2. The same bridge seen from below.

In this first phase GI-632 won't reach AP-1, as the motorway will end just east of the current Zublaurre tunnel, south of Bergara.

However, the press article I've just linked says something new:

Quote:
Pero además de estas mejoras, el proyecto recupera la posibilidad de conectar en el futuro la GI-632 con la AP-1 (Eibar-Gasteiz), a través del túnel de San Miguel, una opción desechada por el anterior Gobierno de Bildu.
Basically it says that the new project envisages the possibility of a future connection with AP-1 through a new tunnel, which had been ruled out by the previous provincial government.

A-23 works on Nueno-Arguis, where one side was cut this spring are on going and it is expected to have again a 2x2 in november.

In addition, as a source of another forumer, on going works in A-23 are really on going (not halted) but really slowly.
