Is there already a 2008 road atlas from Michelin for Spain/Portugal?

Yes, this underground Autovía in Madrid is the most used in Spain, it's a circle under Madrid (there are still a part overground in the north of the city), there are two twing tunnels (one per direction) with 2 levels each one, the one that you have seen is for normal traffic and the other with 2 lanes in each tunnel (under the other level) is exclusive for emergency vehicles (ambulances, firemen, police, etc...), there are emergency exits each few meters (in fact that tunnels are of the most secure in Europe) and there are mobile phone coverage in all the tunnels (and they are working to provide GPS coverage, but i don't know if it's possible), there are also some other tunnels that connects directly this autovía with other autovías y autopistas and some parts of the city and there are are other 2 twin tunnels in the south that are a shortcut to avoid having to make the circle complete (less time and km if you don't have to use the furder south connections) and is planned to do the same on the north.

All the walls are painted with different colors (one per each tunnel) and numbers so if there is a problem you can call to the emergency's numer and they can know exactly where are you.

Bye bye :P

Yes, the budget was a bit less than 9.000 million euros only for the part already constructed. But the new part will be constructed parallel to the "Plan Chamartín" (a plan to move the Chamartin train station, one of the most importants stations in Spain and its railways to the underground and sell the freed land (in the center of Madrid) for build private skyscrappers and the money will be used in the M-30 and in the new Chamartín station.

Bye bye! :P

A-8: 2.8km + 3.8km + 5.3km
A-23: 27.8km
A-40: 16.8km
A-41: 9.1km
A-45: 13.5km
A-66: 26.5km + 15km + 8.3km + 14.4km
A-67: 11.9km

TOTAL: 162.4km

Fortunately there is a consensus between the two major parties when it comes to infraestructure, so the situation is pretty much the same no matter who rules the country. Only some tiny leftist parties are against motorways.

About PSOE's projects, they already approved PEIT back in 2005 so there you have a general idea of the future Spanish network. According to that, in 2020 Spain is planned to have 15,000km of motorways and 95% of the population is expected to live at 30km from a motorway in the worst scenario.

One thing I can never figure out is why are European cities filled with grafittis? Is it some form of counterculturre like the hippie movement, and are the authorities and city residents OK with these things?

Actually it's before the beginning of Autovía del Camino. That part has no motorway characteristics.


Autovía del Mediterráneo???

Yes.

It's the A-3 in the limit between Cuenca and Valencia provinces. The A-3 passes through Pantano de Contreras.

If I don't remember bad, the M-50 has the "autopista" sign


instead of the "autovía" one,


so do the M-40 and M-45 too. However, it's toll-free.

The autonomous goverment of Madrid Community is planning to build the northern part of the M-50, but calling it M-61. The reason? The national goverment doesn't want to build it because it would affect the El Pardo mount and the Ministry of Environment would refuse the project. However I think that at the end they will accept the project. Or at least that's what they did with the R-1: The autonomous government of Madrid "threatened" to build it by theirselves and call it RM-1. Finally the Ministry of Public Works (national government) accepted to pay the motorway. The same is happening with the M-65/R-6


As for the M-60, I have no clue of what's happening, but I don't expect to see it built before 10 years. Anyway there is something similar being built. It's a kind of pentagon outside Madrid province which consists of the AP-51, AP-61, A-40, a tolled motorway East of Madrid and a new autovía between the A-1 and A-2 in Guadalajara.
