C-37, Catalonia

The Catalan regional government plans to complete in 2022 the connection between C-37 and A-26 in Olot. Currently traffic going from C-37 (Bracons tunnel) to A-26 must cross the towns of Les Preses and Olot, which causes congestion.

The project involves the construction of 9 km of new road, 5 km of which will have motorway standards (Olot bypass), including a 2.5 km tunnel. The rest of the project will be a conventional road, due to the opposition (or better said, nimbysm) of people living in the area.

Works will be tendered in autumn 2018 and construction of the northern section (Olot bypass) will start in 2019. Construction of the second section (Les Preses bypass) will start in 2020. Both sections are expected to open at once in 2022.

The project will have a total cost of €220 M, of which €46 M will be paid by the Spanish government (the section connecting with A-26).

Exactly, when traffic jams on A-31 are reported on the radio, they always say "direction Atalaya del Cañavate", even though most people have no idea where this tiny village is located. In my opinion it would make more sense to say "direction Madrid", but it's not a control city on that motorway...

About traffic jams it has a lot of sense to say "jams after Atalaya del Cañavate" or so because it is where several motorways joins and traffic can be doubled since there. All motorways can have a different situation before and after that little village

I wasn't talking about traffic jams at that junction or near that junction.

What I was saying is that for reporting any traffic jam on any point of A-31 (which is 240 km long), they use that little village as a reference point. Example: there is congestion for northbound traffic in Villena (190 km from Atalaya del Cañavate). They report on the radio that there is congestion in Villena for traffic in direction Atalaya del Cañavate. That doesn't make sense at all. They should use Albacete or even Madrid as reference points instead.

I guess the nimbys forced through the tunnel? Because right next to it there is flat farmland, much cheaper to build through. The tunnel i feel is a huge waste of public funds, it doesn't make any sense at all

And C-26 West (North) of Olot is now N-260 . As C-26 is a better road between Olot and Ripoll Fomento took it and realigned N-260 there.

V-23

A couple of photos of V-23 between Sagunto and Puçol. It is hugely oversized with six lanes for only 17,000 vehicles per day.

Seriously, I'd make this section part of A-23 itself, which starts where V-23 makes a right angle turn. I'd then make A-23 start in Valencia proper over V-21, so I'd have only one number from my hometown all the way to Valencia .

Notice this sign has Puçol written in Spanish (Puzol). It's also a "wrong" translation, the correct one being "Pozuel" or "Pozuelo". I decided to call it by the former. I also refuse to call Sagunto by this name, instead I use its historical name Murviedro as it was called until 1868, and the Aragonese Wikipedia (yes, there is one!) still names it this way.

You must have difficult conversations with all those 'alternate definitions' or 'alternate names' you use

Blame Aragonese Wikipedia for those and a few other towns, mainly in Aragon (obviously) . I use literal translations for several, including deliberately confunsing two towns which have different names in Spanish (Longares and Longas) but the same one in Aragonese (Longars); and I even use the Aragonese names for several towns where the language is still spoken: Echo for Hecho (which doesn't affect pronounciation, and no echo occurs anyway), L'Ainsa for Ainsa, and Chisten for Gistain.

This will be the first major motorway project backed by Generalitat de Catalunya (Catalan regional Government) to start in 7 years (C-25 started construction in 2011). There are many others waiting the green light but budget cuts have sent them all to the shelf.

Hi Chris.... being a mod from the same region he comes from, honestly, before or later you catch all "alternatives", but sometimes not easy.

Here's a video showing the current (last week's, actually) status of the works of Caldearenas-Lanave section of A-23, published by the builders:

It appears one side of a tunnel. Which is it?

CV-15 Puerto de Ares

I made a video of a circa 22 kilometer section of CV-15 in the Maestrazgo, across the Puerto de Ares. It's a remote but scenic area.

CV-50

I've just found out another abandoned motorway project in Spain (similar to MP-203 or CM-41).

It's a 3 km section of CV-50 between Benaguasil and Vilamarxant, some 25 km west of Valencia. CV-50, which already exists as a conventional road, was supposed to be upgraded to motorway standards between Benissanó and Cheste, thus connecting CV-35 with A-3. Only the section between Benissanó (CV-35) and Benaguasil was completed.

According to Google Earth aerial footage, construction has been suspended since at least 2009. The project is not going to be resumed anytime soon (source: http://www.levante-emv.com/comunitat...0/1583627.html).
