A–22: Sietamo – Huesca (A–23) 12.8 km (Fall 2018 to Late 2021) – ? – map

According to regional newspaper Heraldo (in Spanish) over 20 companies are bidding to build the missing A–22 link near Huesca. This will mean the abrupt ending near Sietamo, so often proposed to be opened to politicians and bank directives only , will go away (photo from same newspaper).


BTW, since Zaragoza buses were mentioned, my avatar (a placeholder actually, but it is now permanent ) comes directly from one of them on line 41 (what a surprise ). I took the original photo four years ago in the outlying neighborhood of Rosales del Canal, and the line links it with the city center.

Biggest issue of this section is finally going to be done. Beams over Avenida de las Universidades will be colocated in some days, probably December, exactly in this point:
https://www.google.es/maps/@37.29991...7i13312!8i6656

I don't think the works will be done before March'18, but this is the section of SE40 that is advancing faster.

They will not be opened in 2017, and I honestly doubt Coria del Río - Almensilla will be done before 2019. Almensilla-Espartinas is finished since (I think) 2014, but still not in service.

WTF they did here:
https://www.google.es/maps/@42.12406...!3m1!1e3?hl=es why no use old bridge instead add that roundabout?

Old bridge is not safe (bad signalled indeed) and haven't had an accident because lack of traffic.
Nowadays, if I enter Sietamo I just know nobody comes from the opposite side but really weird if you are on site.

In addition, I reckon there is not capacity for all traffic there. Remember they are coming from a motorway (2x2) and just want to join to a road 1x1. A roundabout is not the best solution but as far as Sietamo traffic doesn't make congestions... they decided to build

I took some pictures of country roads near Burgos, or more precisely, around the San Juan de Ortega monastery.

I generally found the provincial roads in Burgos a bit narrower than La Rioja's, although smoother. La Rioja's road are often made of badly patched chipseal - sometimes you can't even see the original surface.

Another difference is that roads in La Rioja almost always have a dashed line in the middle, while in Burgos they paint shorter dashed lines along the sides.

The monastery of San Juan de Ortega.

PB233294 by J GM, en Flickr

Some pictures of arrow signs at an intersection. Usually, the numbers of the XX-X-NNNN provincial roads are omitted, but in this case the BU-V-7017 is signed (the other road is not). Maybe because this place is visited by tourists?

The BU-V-7017:

I just wanted to taste some more of the country roads of Burgos, so I took the BU-V-8134, which goes from the N-120 to the hamlet of Galarde.

PB233335 by J GM, en Flickr


PB233359 by J GM, en Flickr


PB233377 by J GM, en Flickr


The N-120 to Burgos (23 km ahead). I had to wait some time until it emptied. Traffic along this part of the N-120 consists of queues of 3 or 4 lorries followed by another 5 or 6 cars behind.

And towards Logroño (89 km):

I don't remember having seen that sign anywhere else. It probably is something used only by the local road administration. The monastery is also signed along the N-120 (Fomento), together with the scallop shell sign of the Camino de Santiago: https://www.google.com/maps/@42.3493...7i13312!8i6656

OK, thanks.

Now, that's new: italics on Spanish signs (except for Catalonia in the regional network signs).

In the same road/motorway, inside Aragon... there is a corner called "origin of Aragon" and two first kings remains there.

It is not only a monastery below a great rock in the middle of a forest but also some other churches

ERM = Ermita = CHAPEL
IGL = Iglesia = CHURCH

https://www.google.es/maps/@42.55554...2!8i6656?hl=es


BTW, Chris (and rest of forumers), wanted to look for stunning landscapes roads in Spain? Have a glance

https://www.google.es/maps/@42.50768...2!8i6656?hl=es


Parking forbidden in high season. Must go to "upper monastery" and take a free shuttle to that one.... but be sure driving you will see one out of those places where it is known Saint Grail was set in Middle Age!!!!

It is kind of messy the way of signaling points of interest from the historical/touristic point of view. Sometimes in brown in additional signs, other times in purple. Then, Javier is a town as far as I know (the male name "Javier" comes from this town, not the opposite, ). Ok, the town is historically, artistically and touristically relevant. But, how's the criteria? Every single town and city with such an interested should be highlighted in purple on a regular sign? Shouldn't it just marked as a regular destination, and then, in the best scenario, another complementary panel for the castle/town? I can understand the thing of the monastery though, as it is mostly referring to a place somehow... but still... confusing. Lack of really strong criteria for sure. Nothing surprising in the Spanish signage system. In general nice, but crazy amount of inconsistencies.

A-81 Badajoz - Granada

According to this article, it is 11.7 km long and will open by late 2018. It is named as 'GR-47', but is also considered the easternmost section of A-81, which will run from Badajoz to Granada and replaces N-432.

There must be a mistake in the article you link, because that section is officially called GR-43 in the Fomento website and the same numbering is used in all the press articles I could find on the Internet.

While it's true that this section will in the future be the beginning of A-81, it will probably keep the numbering GR-43 given it's an urban access, meaning that A-81 will officially begin in Pinos Puente.

Regarding its length, 11.7 km is the official length of the lot currently under construction, but you can see on aerial footage that the construction works of GR-43 stretch for at least 1 km east of Granada's outer bypass, which means that the section opening next year (or in 2019) will only be around 10.6 km long (between N-432 in Pinos Puente and the new A-44* near Atarfe). That 1 km section east of the GR-43 - A-44 interchange will only open once the second phase of GR-43 up to A-92G is built.

* Granada's outer bypass will be renamed A-44 once it's completed, and then the current A-44 alignment close to the city center will be renamed GR-20 or GR-30.

A-33

Surprise!

A new A-33 section will open to traffic tomorrow.

I guess it's a 4 km section south of La Font de la Figuera which looks quite advanced in aerial images from last year (even with the first layers of asphalt).

That means that the whole A-33 between A-31 and A-35 will be opened to traffic from tomorrow with the exception of the interchanges with A-31 and A-35, which will be completed later.

Original source (in Spanish):

Quote:
De la Serna también se ha referido a algunas infraestructuras viarias de la Comunitat, y ha señalado que este viernes entrará en servicio un nuevo tramo de la variante de la A-33 entre Cieza (Murcia) y la Font de la Figuera (Valencia).

According to Fomento, they will also officially inaugurate the A-31 realignment known as the 'Curvas del Angosto'. This is immediately south of the A-33 interchange.

They built a bit of infrastructure there, apart from the A-31/A-33 interchange there is also a large-scale grade-separated railroad junction, a large solar park, a prison and water catchment basins.

Finally only the A-31 realignment (1.7 km) opened today. They say “it’s part of the A-33 project”, but the statements from the Minister I posted yesterday are inaccurate to say the least. In any event I’m afraid we’ll have to wait for a while until the new A-33 section between La Font de la Figuera and A-31 opens.

Map of the new A-31 realignment (yellow):
