From the Cerro Almodóvar (not related to Pedro Almodóvar ), isn't it?
You can see the A-3 and the M-40 partially too because it's the first bridge over the A-3.

Some pictures of the A-67 by Carabaza and Alsajano.





The unpaved area is a "zona para frenado de emergencia" (lane for emergency braking).

In mid-February.

It will be the highest bridge in Spain (145 m height) and sixth in Europe.

Yes thanks to Carabaza and Alsajano.

Nice pics of the Montabliz viaduct! It was a beautiful day to take them!

When will the A-67 will be finished?

The whole motorway in the early 2009 if they don't have to face new problems.

There are still 70 km to be opened, but around 30 km will be finished soon.

Where will it be 3-laned? It doesn't seem to cross any big cities.

I guess it will only have 3 lanes close to some exits and in some places with big slopes. It's typical in some Spanish motorways to use a 3x2 configuration in that kind of streches to avoid traffic jams caused by lorries.

Between Santander and Torrelavega, traffic is already pretty dense so they will build a third lane in the short term.

Those 3 lanes stretches in the pictures are in big slopes, going up, as Stifler said.
Not 2x3 though. Just 2+3 (3 lanes only going up).
And that's typical not only on Spanish motorways.
Happens all the time here in Portugal too for example, and in other countries as well, when there are big slopes... It's comon around here (iberian peninsula) because there are lots of slopes (many mountains).

Damn, I wanted to write 3+2. Not 3x2 of course.

Even the AP-2 Lleida - El Vendrell has climbing lanes though the climbs are not very steep, and there is virtually no traffic on that route, especially not truck traffic, which takes the A-2 to Martorell.
