According to the press, at least 8 projects of the Plan Extraordinario de Inversión en Carreteras (PIC) could be awarded this year via payment for availability deals.


1) A-30 Arco Noroeste de Murcia 32.8 km / 279 M

2) A-7 new bypass of Valencia (CV-32 - A-3) 22 km / 288 M

3) Extension of the A-7/CV-10 in Castellón 366 M

4) A-73 Burgos-Aguilar de Campoo 79 km / 263 M

5) A-32 Linares-Albacete 48 km / 396 M

6) Refurbishment of the A-4 (R-4 Puerto Lápice) 70.5 km / 200 M

7) Refurbishment of the A-4 (in Andalusia) 146 km / 340 M

8) Dualling of the N-2 Girona-La Jonquera 38 km / 199 M


The total amount of the plan is 5,000 million € for about 20 projects, but there seems to be some controversy as for which ones should be included in the plan.

Some widenings to 3 lanes are also being considered:
* A-7 Crevillent and Orihuela-Benferri
* A-62 around Valladolid
* A-66 in Asturias
* A-8 or A-67 in Cantabria

What is that new bypass of Valencia project? Is it CV-50?

No, it’s just the widening of the current bypass (A-7) by adding new side lanes, in order to have a configuration similar to AP-7 + B-30 in Barcelona bypass.

Aha. A-7 carries a huge amount of truck traffic, but most of it seems to have an origin/destination within 100 km of Valencia, probably tied to the citrus industry.

Ah, that makes sense. The article didn't specify so I thought it was a new bypass. This other article, however, clearly refers to the existing bypass: http://www.lasprovincias.es/comunita...152122-nt.html

It says that the current bypass has an AADT of 96k (with peaks up to 120k) and a 29.5% of truck share.


Also, there seems to be a lot of motorway projects around Murcia: The Arco Noroeste (new bypass of the A-30), the Arco Norte (new bypass of the A-7), the Autovía del Bancal (kind of an eastern bypass) and the widening of the A-7 on both sides of the metropolitan area.

After doing some research I've managed to find two renderings of the planned widening of A-7:





In the last picture you can see that in some sections the new lanes for local traffic will be built on the same side of the current motorway (which will be left for long-distance traffic). That's mostly due to lack of space to build one carriageway on each side of the current motorway.

Besides, south of A-3 there would actually be a new alignment, if they ever decide to widen that part of A-7:

Where it says "Sagunt" it should say "Morvedre" .

So they are restarting the old refurbishment plan. Great. Only A-1 between El Molar and Santo Tome del Puerto and A-3 between Madrid and Tarancon remain without news.

Should they let an exit from AP-7 to A-23 there (where it is yet free), they will avoid congestion and save some km.

A-226 Teruel

A couple of photos of A-226 between Fortanete and Allepuz in Teruel province. I like desolate landscapes like this.

Did you continue up to Teruel through the Cabigordo pass, near Corbalán? I loved that part, it looks even more desolate.

I took A-228 south from Allepuz, to Mora de Rubielos. A-228 is partially a very outdated road (now to be upgraded) and partially a decent road. There is virtually no traffic on it.

Almost any road in Teruel province is scenic. The area between N-420 and A-226 also seems worth a visit. But my campsite at that time was in Viver (Valencia) so I didn't want to go too far away. There aren't many campsites in Teruel province. Tourism is very underdeveloped in that province.

I have that area unexplored as well. I only drove N-420 last year. Teruel doesn't exist (it's our version of Bielefeld after all xD).

I see some "recommended speed" (blue square, white number) signs in Chris' pictures. Are they common in Spain?

Yes, they are all over the place, to the point of being overkill.

A-228 is the shortest road between Valencia and Zaragoza indeed, even if I would never get it (takes several mountain passes).

It is refurbished from Gudar village through south. The rest of road... I have read several news about new road but still no works... but guess it will be one out of next ones.

Scenic roads anywhere in that area. Anyway, next time go to Valdelinares ski resort (1992m osl) and later highest municipality in Aragón (Valdelinares, 1692m in town hall).

There are two points where you can reach and see the sea even so far away. One of them, northern Nogueruelas, near km.9 just try to find the sea (not easy)

Second one (deviated with an unpaved path for a while)
From here https://www.google.es/maps/@40.30946...2!8i6656?hl=es
if sunny, you will see sea, although distance

AP-6 has become inaccessible due to heavy snow.

Yes, the army has had to intervene to free some drivers.

Since yesterday there have been problems related to heavy snowfall at least in A-1, A-12, A-15, AP-68 and A-92.
