C-25 Eix Transversal II

C-25 between Vic and Manresa.

3. I've noticed they are generous with climbing lanes on inclines, even when the highway has very low traffic volumes.

Those climbing lanes are inherited from the single-carriageway days. Traffic on C-25 was heavy (>10.000 vpd) and chances to pass the many trucks on that road were scarce.

Very nice pictures!

However I reckon that the C-25 between Vic and Girona has better scenery

Aaand they have messed up the color code. C-59 should be orange (or red as they use in Catalonia), not green.

Also, I like the name of Berga, as it sounds like verga which means a long stick (not to mention its other meaning).

Well, I did not meant C-25 specifically, but from my trips through Spain I've noticed they are in general quite generous with climbing lanes on motorways, even those with almost no truck traffic.

Well Spain's a hilly country! I've noticed more or less the same amount of climbing lanes in France, for example.

Italy's hilly too, but climbing lanes are comparatively rarer.

Problably green is OK, because they changed the category of this road from Caldes de Montbui to C-25. It was part of "xarxa bàsica" and now is labeled as "xarxa comarcal". In the future it will be renamed to C-643.

OK, so the N330 goes has a curvy stretch between Huesca city and Sabiñánigo, close to where it crosses the Rio Guarga. It seems by June 2012 a bridge was constructed in order to straighten out this stretch. The bridge can be seen here:

https://www.google.com/maps/@42.4031...7i13312!8i6656

But I don't see this as a completed road on Google Maps. Is it still under construction?

A-21 Viaducto de Sigüés

The Sigüés Viaduct of A-21 in Aragón. It is 989 meters long and opened to traffic in 2015. I took this photo last month.

Thanks a lot. I took a picture two years ago when it was still on works.

I will copy it in local threads

Yes it is but works goes quite, quite slow.

The Monrepos pass is indeed quite curvy, but at least the curves have a large radius so no substantial slowing is required. The bridge is being built as part of the Caldearenas-Lanave section of A-23 motorway, which has been restarted a few days ago.

I've just found out the existence of a winter sports forum which has a thread dedicated to A-21 (and another one to A-23). It's regularly updated with recent pictures of the works, so I've thought it would be useful to have some of them (taken in September and October 2016) posted here:

This five sections of A-23 make up the well-known Monrepós pass, a part of N-330 which is being upgraded to motorway standards. It includes an impressive set of tunnels and viaducts which, when completed, will allow the existence of two different carriageways all the way from Nueno to Lanave (and further to Sabiñánigo and Jaca).

As in the case of A-21, I've found in a winter sports forum an interesting thread dedicated to the construction of A-23. Some recent pictures (July-October 2016) show that works have been resumed in the last few months in all the different sections:

And some older pictures (January-April 2016). Fortunately works have been resumed on these sections since then:

A-23

Besides, a subcontractor of one of the sections (I think it's Lanave - Caldearenas) has uploaded loads of pictures of the works to its website:

About 40km A21/A23 are not yet u/c. I think it won't be opened in the near future but any time after 2020 if ever.
