They probably just started when I passed there, the only thing I saw was some brush clearing.

A-228

I even took two photos of the 40 kilometer post. Are these new style 10 km posts? I don't recall seeing them on other A-roads in Teruel province.

These photos were taken at Gúdar, where the narrow road becomes much more modern. I just parked on the middle of the road, I did not encounter any car from Allepuz to Gúdar... The AADT is only 200 according to Aforos 2015.

This one was a bit out of focus unfortunately.

Yes, they are new. It is the first time I see these kind of 10km milestones

True. The new standards (3.1-IC Trazado) were approved in 1964 according to this website: http://carreteros.org/normativa/trazado/trazado.htm

However, most national roads weren't upgraded until the 1980's. It must had been a hell of an improvement. I recently drove the old N-625 (Madrid-)Pancorbo-Bilbao, the main connection before the AP-68 was opened. A stretch of it remained as it was in 1980. It was a lovely rollercoaster full of narrow bridges and tight curves at blind hills. No wonder Spain had such a sky-high road death toll back then. However, I'm accustomed to driving on modern roads with good alignment, so I kind of enjoy roads that just follow the terrain and force you to be alert.

A-14

5 years later, A-14 is no longer a motorway to nowhere:

Fomento minister Íñigo de la Serna also announced that N-240 duplication between Lleida and Les Borges Blanques has the highest priority. That would be A-27.

https://www.segre.com/noticies/comar...3784_1091.html

So A-27 seems to have a higher priority than a further extension of A-14 now.

Interesting though, that Fomento maps show the 'Enlace de Roselló'. That interchange does not exist. The first interchange is Alguaire.

The Roselló interchange was originally planned, but subsequently ruled out in order to save costs. It wouldn't have been very useful, since reaching A-2 from Roselló would have been faster via N-230 than via A-14, and northbound traffic to/from Roselló can use the Alguaire interchange without a considerable detour.

So here it's the newspaper (Segre) fault to be still using an outdated map.

Regarding N-240 duplication between Lleida and Les Borges Blanques, it's not clear whether that section will actually be part of A-27 or just a widening of N-240 to 2x2 with roundabouts. The Minister also announced today that the construction of 3 roundabouts on that section will be tendered soon, so it's quite likely that the duplication won't meet motorway standards.

A14R2 at Almenar. This is the kilometer post for the link road between A-14 and N-230 north of Almenar.

I bet, nothing to do in N-240 next three years. Fomento has to deal with a lot of issues in these years, already started. Another issue is to put above in the list for next minister

A-32

Fomento has reactivated the works on three sections of A-32 in northeastern Andalusia:

http://www.europapress.es/andalucia/...718135907.html

* Úbeda - Torreperogil (16,3 km)
* Torreperogil - Villacarril (13,6 km)
* Villacarril - Villanueva del Arzobispo (17,2 km)

It was announced earlier that these sections would be under construction in 2015, but evidently that did not come through. These sections (47.1 km) will be completed in 2019.

Úbeda - Torreperogil has seen the most works before they were ceased in 2010, they built a substantial amount of the embankment and 8 or 9 bridges that carry A-32 over other roads. Torreperogil - Villanueva del Arzobispo hasn't seen much more than some expropriation according to April 2016 imagery in Google Earth.

Hope it runs

Hallelujah!

Construction of these sections of A-32 was becoming a never-ending story! They were among the few suspended works during the May 2010 budget cuts whose construction had not been resumed yet.

Later I'll check which ones are still officially suspended.

This is a new sign on the section that opened in 2012. As of September 2016, this sign was installed:


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

So Almenar has been removed and Toulouse and Alfarràs were added.

The removal of Almenar is remarkable, given that it is right next to this exit and also a sizable town with a population of 3,600 (even larger than Alfarràs, which is arguably a more important hub).

The addition of both Alfarràs and Toulouse also suggests they don't plan for an extension of A-14 within the foreseeable future.

Yes, basically that's what the Minister announced yesterday. If A-14 is ever extended to Alfarràs, then Almenar will probably reappear on the signs.

In addition we already have a brand-new press release from the Fomento guys.

http://www.fomento.gob.es/MFOMBPrens...3-9b1fdfdce6ba

To sum up the most important information:

Besides, the Minister announced that in 2018 they plan to tender the new Baeza interchange on the section of A-32 that opened in 2012 (Ibros - Úbeda). It's quite striking that this town didn't get its own access to the motorway, given it's listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site!

A-33 Jumilla

The Jumilla interchange of A-33 opened to traffic today. It appears that traffic doesn't have to exit at a temporary ramp but can now use the regular interchange.

http://www.laverdad.es/agencias/murc...e-1014412.html
El enlace ha sido diseñado con la tipología de glorieta a distinto nivel, con un radio de 60 m. y dos carriles de 4,5 m, que tiene la cualidad de su sencillez y seguridad para los usuarios de la carretera.
Also, A-33 may be completed before the end of the year up to Yecla:
Las autoridades han hecho un viaje por las obras terminadas de la autovía A-33 entre Jumilla y Yecla, que, según han comprobado, avanzan a buen ritmo de cara a su conclusión antes de fin de año.


On the other hand, this Twitter image suggest they did not actually open any new ramps yet, but just the roundabout:
