Oh, I'm planing a tour with a friend in Summer (he's driving and I'm taking the (road)photos ) and our route will be similar, with some differences:

We'll take the road roads instead:
1. We'll pass Madrid via Burgos - Salamanca - Cáceres
2. Maybe we do a trip to Portugal
3. And we'll drive to Tarifa to take a ferry to Morocco

It semms like we have the same intensions for our routes to Spain: One way the direct way via Bordeaux and the other way with a visit at Millau.


What's the status of the A-7 betwee Alicante and Valencia?
Is the Alcoy-Bypass finnished? Are there any cross-town links?

And is there any web-site with the AP-tolls?

They've added new imagery of Zaragoza. The Z-40 seems about finished.

I was trying to edit my previous post here (I mean the one written today at 2.45 PM) but when I press the "edit" button it says "Invalid thread specified". Then I refresh the page and my post suddenly disappears, I do it again and it appears, and it doesn't even appear in the list of threads opened in the subforum So it would be fine if someone could confirm that my posts can be readed, otherwise I'll suppose that my posts cannot be readed.

Well, this is was I wanted to post. More maps of highways under construction from Viamichelin. I selected what I consider to be the most important stretches u/c.

A-50 Ávila-Salamanca. A fast link between Portugal and the Spanish East to Madrid and the Mediterranean:


A-8 in Asturias and Galicia. The last part of the A-8, which crosses from East to West the northern coast of Spain:


A-67 in Cantabria and Palencia. An important connection between Castile, Madrid and the northern coast:


A-7 (Thanks Morsue for your correction) in Granada province. This stretch has been u/c for many years and is currently the only part on the Mediterranean coast in which you can't use a motorway:

You mean A-7, right? I drove that route between Malaga and Murcia last summer trying to catch some nice scenery (the ringling roads by the sea are stunning) but ended up in a massive traffic jam between La Herradura and Torrenueva.

Yeah, they started to study it a couple of years ago but it's not likely to happen soon. With the new motorways built in the last decade you don't have to go through Madrid to cross the country, so the traffic level is lower. Maybe in 20 years we could see a M60. Now they are far more focused on closing the North side of M50.

This is a map of that M60 (blue) and the missing stretch of M50 (red) by Carretero


And why not a M70


Seriously, with the new motorways planned or under construction (A40, CM40...) it will be a kind of ring in the outskirts of Madrid Metro Area.

Some news about the tolled "radiales" of Madrid.

The R-3 and R-5 will be lengthened.

I agree with you: road signs in my country are confusing many times...
