The opening of this section will take place in two different phases:

The first 4 km between Las Losas and Cortijos de Marín (A-1050 interchange) will open in mid July.

The single km left between Cortijos de Marín (A-1050 interchange) and the roundabout at the end of the section (south of Cortijos de Marín) will open in September.

Autovía de la Ribagorza, that's a new name. Until now it was just indicated as 'Autovía A-14'.

Yes, but this particular section opened before the change.

I bet that sign will be vandalized in no time, as it's Ribagorça in Catalan. Is not the only one, A-22 is now 'Autovía del Camino Catalán', referring to a lesser known branch of the Way of St. James, although that is still to be signed. Before that it was just Lleida-Huesca motorway (and God knows when will be finished to A-23, thanks to some NIMBYism and the financial crisis...).

Most motorways (although not all of them) have an official name according to the list included at the end of the 2015 road law (Ley 37/2015).

As CNGL points out, when a motorway doesn't have an official name, it's simply known by the name of the cities it connects at each end.

'AP-2 Autopista Zaragoza-Mediterráneo'.

I thought this was the Autopista de Nordeste. I do not recall any signs with the name on it between Lleida and Zaragoza.

I also drove the eastern half of A-43. There are no signs with 'Autovía del Guadiana', but there are signs with 'Autovía Extremadura-Comunidad Valenciana'.



'A-50 Autovía de la Cultura' is also not signed as such:

Not yet. The old (1987) Norma 8.2- IC. Marcas viales is still applicable: http://fomento.es/MFOM/LANG_CASTELLA...L/SENAHORIZON/

Therefore, the dashed line should still be used:



There is a draft of a new 8.2-IC (5 MB PDF download), which was released in 2007 and has been under test in some parts of the network for all this time (10 years!).

Another difference is the exit arrow. The British-style arrow used currently would be changed:

Alright, so the new section of A-14 hasn't opened today.

Apparently they're waiting until they find some authorities with an empty spot on their agendas.

Whatever...

I had a question about the Northern access to Lleida through N-230 and N-240. Can they manage the amount of traffic? Have they enough capacity?

The A-2/A-14 interchange is right between the N-230 and N-240 exits. The interchange is designed as a trumpet, with the highest speed movements being towards the east (to N-230), so this design suggests that that would be the main entrance from the north. N-240 is already used by traffic coming from A-22.

If I were you, I'd rather ask it in the Catalan subforum, given that there are several forumers from Lleida who usually post there.

In my opinion, even if there's enough capacity, I think at least N-240 should be widened (2x2 with roundabouts, sidewalks and bike lanes) between Lleida and the beginning of A-22. There are many properties and businesses alongside the road and the area is becoming increasingly urban. In the short term it could become dangerous if traffic increases.

IMO they should have done a single interchange with A-2, A-14 and A-22. A-14 is getting a free-flowing interchange with A-2 and A-22 doesn't have one .

but only autovias had dashed line, right? autopistas always had solid?

it seems to me little bit unclear atm becuse A2 has solid line on Street View. also, I am sure that C25 had dashed, but on Street View also has solid. and I aa pretty sure that 1-2 years ago there was news that only solid line is starting to be used.

Autopista del Nordeste (forner "Autovía de Aragón" and known as that) is only Madrid-Zaragoza.

They called Bilbao-Zaragoza-El Vendrell corridor as "Autopista del Ebro"

And of course we will find anywhere weird names...

As for N-230, the city of Lleida wants A-14 to reach deeper into the urban area. However, Fomento does not plan to widen the road and said that it should be done by the council instead. As this would be a very expensive project for such a city, I don't think it's going to be done in the near future. Currently, the only problem in N-230 is the excessive amount of roundabouts added by Fomento over the last years. With the new stretch of A-14, drivers will bypass a great deal of them, since the existing stretch wasn't worth the detour and everybody took N-230:



N-240 is 2+1 West of the city, and East of it there's C-13 bypass which has two branches, an inner one and the outer which is a motorway. There were plans to build a western bypass of the city, but they were shelved since they faced great opposition from land owners. Agricultural produce, which is mostly cultivated in the surroundings of Lleida, are the main exports of this province.

Traffic can bypass 14 (!) roundabouts with A-14.

So the space-time fold at the top of Monrepos pass (4 kilometers in just 400 meters) is officially gone. As part of the works on the Monrepos summit-Caldearenas [sic] section of A-23 they connected two sections of the old C-136 road and detoured the traffic there, so they can rebuild the road into the southbound carriageway of the motorway (the northbound one will be on a tunnel, and both will be in a "British" configuration, i.e. driving on the left). If anyone wants to see the works at the very top of the pass, a camera is avalaible here.

And a fun fact: Once the motorway is finished (all is not needed, only this section and the neighboring Caldearenas-Lanave one) Jaca will be closer to Huesca than Huesca to Jaca
