He forgot to say openings of "State-owned"* non-urban motorways.

* Which is a distinction I don't care about; motorways are motorways regardless of which territorial administration is in charge of its construction. In Spain it can be either the central government (Estado) or the regions (Comunidades Autónomas).

But in the Spanish forum there are some forumers (especially one) who always insist on the difference between region-built and State-built motorways.

For the users, they are just motorways, national highways or other roads. Regardless of who owns and maintains it, motorists should be able expect a decent quality, adequate road.

AP-68

It looks like AP-68 will become toll free between Navarrete and Arrúbal, that is to say, the southern bypass of Logroño (28 km). The section could be renamed LO-30 or A-68.

The project includes the widening to 2x3 of the whole section and the construction of two new toll plazas east and west of Logroño to make it a real toll-free motorway. New interchanges will be built to improve the connectivity of the motorway with neighboring roads, and the current toll plazas at the exits 12 (Logroño) and 13 (Agoncillo) will be removed.

I would have opted for a solution akin to AP-7 in Girona bypass, where the motorway is toll free for internal movements but through drivers still pay for it. As it is a closed toll system, toll plazas are maintained at the exits but drivers who use them for journeys within the toll-free section just take the ticket when they enter the motorway and deliver it when they leave it, without paying anything. As a result, through drivers don't have to stop twice (before and after the toll-free section) because there's no need to build new toll plazas.

In any event, the solution planned for Logroño makes the construction of toll plazas in the LO-20 / AP-68 interchange currently u/c quite unnecessary.

Map of the area:

Chris, a view from the last brigde you posted is interesting.

By the way, after all the congost there are some statues of horses. Once in a local thread about "guess the road", the only image was that statue and it was guessed at first.

IIRC, in the past, there was a time when it was compulsory for HGVs to take AP-68 around Logroño and it was free for them. It worked as what you say for Girona bypass. Currently, any trip between Cenicero/Navarrete/Logroño/Agoncillo is toll free for every type of vehicle, provided you've got a Via-T device.

At first it was 50% discount only, later they set 50% for overpass from Logroño (should you take on/off at Logroño, no discount) and when works on LO-20, free with Via-T for trucks.

Finally they shifted to 100% from Cenicero to Agoncillo providing you have a Via-T.

I guess they will avoid it (and you will have to pay for a Cenicero-Navarrete, for instance)

Yawn (I did all of it once again in December).

As I've explained several times, this is actually the second N-123, the first one ran from Zuera to Huesca, and disappeared in 1982 when N-330 was realigned (and made continuous all the way from Alicante to France, the previous route had a never built section from Zuera to Murillo de Gallego). And as I already pointed out it should be N-131.

At some point between September and December they added some info to the tunnel signs, basically the name of them: Olvena number (insert number between 1 and 10 here).

Sometimes construction of new railway lines and motorways is so intertwined that a report on a rail project can be posted in the highways forum.

This is a good example, as this section of A-33 runs parallel to the new rail line Xàtiva - La Encina.

Cross-posting from the Spanish forum. The darkest and widest one is the motorway.

Construction seems quite advanced, but no opening date has been announced. I bet summer 2017 is as a realistic date.

Autovía de la Sagra, Castilla-La Mancha

The CM-43 extension near Añover de Tajo was inaugurated today. It is a 3 kilometer segment from the last interchange to a roundabout with road CM-4001.

The autovía segment was already built in 2011, but could not open to traffic because an extension to CM-4001 was missing. It opened today, the newly constructed road is not an autovía, but a connector road.

CM-43 was originally planned to be extended across the Tajo (Tagus) to A-40. However A-40 has not been built between Toledo and Ocaña, and as a result, the CM-43 extension to A-40 has also been shelved for the time being.

The construction of the A-31 / A-33 interchange near Caudete on July 2016 satellite imagery.

Notice they appear to be realigning A-31. They did this on other locations in the past as well.

C-13B, Lleida

C-13B is a 4 kilometer autovía that is part of the eastern bypass of the city of Lleida. (location).

1. C-13B starts as an autovía at the LL-11 roundabout.

C-13B-1 by European Roads, on Flickr

2. Tarragona is only 90 kilometers away, it feels much farther, the character of this region is very different from the Costa Daurada.

C-13B-2 by European Roads, on Flickr

3. There is only one interchange on C-13B.

C-13B-3 by European Roads, on Flickr

4.

C-13B-4 by European Roads, on Flickr

5. Albatàrrec, I've never heard of that place before, while I know *a lot* of cities and towns in Spain. It is a village with a population of 2,000 just outside of Lleida. C-13 merges onto LL-12 there.

C-13B-5 by European Roads, on Flickr

6. The actual C-13 joins the main autovía here.

C-13B-6 by European Roads, on Flickr

7. C-13B ends here and becomes C-13.

Hopefully C-13B will be conected soon with the other motorway section of C-13 near Vilanova de la Barca, and hence it will become part of the main C-13 axis.

Works haven't started yet, but it won't be difficult to build that section (it's less than 10 km long).

Madrid mayor apparently announced she will close the Calle de la Gran Vía to all private car traffic by 2020. Her ultimate goal is apparently to introduce congestion charges (like London) within M-30 and reduce the number of parking places within M-30 by half in 10 years as well.

It's "Gran Vía" without "calle de la", like in English it's "Broadway" instead of "Broadway street".

SE-40

Cross-posting from the Spanish forum. Pictures taken by zyro2012 this week near Almensilla, where the two sections meet.

It's quite easy to see the different degree of execution of the two sections. While the first one (Espartinas - Almensilla) is almost ready, the second one (Almensilla - Coria del Río) is less advanced. However, the first one can't be opened to traffic until the second one is ready, due to the fact that the Almensilla interchange is part of the latter.

A provisional interchange north of the one that is planned could be opened as a temporary solution, but there is no official confirmation. In any event, the opening of the first section without the second one wouldn't have a great impact on traffic and as a result its ADT would be quite low.

En primer lugar un resumen de la situación de ambos tramos:
-CORIA-ALMENSILLA.
Movimiento de tierras y construcción de estructuras.

-ALMENSILLA-ESPARTINAS.A49
parado desde hace casi un año, sólo pendiente de biondas y pintura.

Veamos los planos donde confluyen ambos tramos. Están girados para hacerlos coincidir en la misma orientación Norte y para poderlos ver como uno continuación del otro:

-ALMENSILLA-ESPARTINAS.A49
Atentos al paso elevado, justo al final del tramo, del que pongo detalle luego.


-CORIA-ALMENSILLA.
A destacar el enlace, más adelante hay foto del paso elevado central, pintado en azul, y la zona intermedia entre el enlace y el final el tramo.



Este es un detalle del paso elevado, que mencioné antes, desde donde hice las siguientes fotos:



Fotos del 10.enero.2017
Fotos desde el paso elevado:

Primero dirección norte, donde vemos que el tramo Almensilla-Espartinas está prácticamente terminado:



y al lado contrario, tendríamos el enlace de Almensilla justo enfrente, vemos el punto donde confluyen ambos tramos. A la izquierda tiene algunos metros más construidos, probablemente formara parte del enlace provisional.



y un par de fotos más del mismo punto desde otra perspectiva.





Ahora nos vamos a la zona del enlace.

Esta foto es de la zona entre el enlace y el final del otro tramo, que hemos visto antes:



si hacemos zoom, vemos el asfalto del otro tramo y el paso elevado desde el que hice las fotos anteriores. El enorme montón de tierra que se ve al frente a la derecha proviene de los desmontes, ignoro si es permanente:



Aquí vemos el viaducto principal que forma parte del enlace:



Desde el mismo punto de la foto anterior, pero orientación sur, es decir, dirección Coria:



Y finalmente un plano donde podemos ver la solución que se habló para la conexión temporal del tramo Coria-Almensilla con la Autovía de Coria. En el que vemos que no es necesario hacer todo el enlace, sino sólo un ramal. Eso quedará así hasta que se termine el tramo siguiente, que como todos sabemos es el de los túneles.



Y el resultado de los dos tramos. En blanco la SE-40, uniendo la A-49 con la Autovía de Coria, y los 3 enlaces en rojo.



Con algo de suerte lo tendremos en un año o algo más.

A-21 Autovía del Pirineo

Some photos of A-21 in Zaragoza province. A-21 is planned to connect Pamplona and Jaca, the Aragón segment is mostly under construction. Two segments in Aragón are complete, this one and one next to the Navarra border.

1. The autovía starts practically on the border of Huesca and Zaragoza provinces.

2. Asso-Veral.

A-21-3 by European Roads, on Flickr

3. Sos del Rey Católico evidently is a tourist town. Wikipedia has quite an extensive article about it: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sos_del_Rey_Cat%C3%B3lico
