Cicerón--many thanks for these updates.

Am I correct in thinking that the Toledo southwest bypass is being built by the autonomous community of Castile-La Mancha and will have the number CM-40 when it is finished?

Yes, this autovía is part of their Plan Regional de Autovías.

I'm not sure if I published these pics. They're from summer 2005.

AP-2 Lleida - El Vendrell

The AP-2 is the tolled motorway from Zaragoza to Barcelona. The A-2 is partially a toll-free alternative, so the AP-2 between Lleida and El Vendrell is really quiet.

map:
[IMG]http://i37.************/2v8r5n5.png[/IMG]

1. Coming from Lleida onto the AP-2.
[IMG]http://i38.************/3va6x.jpg[/IMG]

2. Next exit is 19 kilometers away.
[IMG]http://i33.************/30vow90.jpg[/IMG]

3. There are no large cities along AP-2 after Lleida.
[IMG]http://i35.************/245g66v.jpg[/IMG]

4. General view off the Autopista.
[IMG]http://i36.************/28hlv6d.jpg[/IMG]

5. Les Borgues exit ahead.
[IMG]http://i38.************/dxdcts.jpg[/IMG]

6. Neat signage, no mess like near some cities.
[IMG]http://i38.************/33vesep.jpg[/IMG]

7. The AP-2 will be this empty until the AP-7.
[IMG]http://i36.************/javxch.jpg[/IMG]

8. Some rest area.
[IMG]http://i35.************/6hqqtt.jpg[/IMG]

9. Climbing lane while there's virtually no truck traffic.
[IMG]http://i34.************/2qjd5ba.jpg[/IMG]

10. l'Albi exit.
[IMG]http://i36.************/2rdzqet.jpg[/IMG]

11. Barcelona still more than an hour away.
[IMG]http://i33.************/mn2i6t.jpg[/IMG]

12. Montblanc exit. I believe they're planning some motorway here as a shortcut to Tarragona.
[IMG]http://i36.************/6iv0xe.jpg[/IMG]

13. 100km/h exits, you don't see that too often.
[IMG]http://i36.************/2vafcko.jpg[/IMG]

14. There are two possible routes to Tarragona.
[IMG]http://i34.************/10z6ckz.jpg[/IMG]

15. Valls Exit ahead
[IMG]http://i35.************/2cqlnxi.jpg[/IMG]

16. It's exit 10.
[IMG]http://i37.************/1ryg6a.jpg[/IMG]

17. Still 92 kilometers to Barcelona.
[IMG]http://i36.************/6r82tf.jpg[/IMG]

18. Minor exit. Well.. most exits here are minor exits.
[IMG]http://i38.************/33x8t2a.jpg[/IMG]

19. Hey there's Tarragona again
[IMG]http://i35.************/15xsltk.jpg[/IMG]

20. View on the coastal mountain range.
[IMG]http://i34.************/2lw28m.jpg[/IMG]

21. Some more 3-laned sections of which 2 lanes mostly collect dust.
[IMG]http://i36.************/20zch89.jpg[/IMG]

22. Exit 12 ahead.
[IMG]http://i38.************/14akl7k.jpg[/IMG]

23. Note most exits can be driven with 100 km/h.
[IMG]http://i35.************/6olq50.jpg[/IMG]

24. Yeah, Costa de Garraf. Sitges is known as some kind of gay capital (which we found out later )
[IMG]http://i35.************/zjcnwj.jpg[/IMG]

25. Gold coast
[IMG]http://i34.************/2vaavzn.jpg[/IMG]

26. Nearing the end of AP-2.
[IMG]http://i35.************/mt9qaa.jpg[/IMG]

27. Almost vintage looking.
[IMG]http://i35.************/wguhrk.jpg[/IMG]

28. On the southbound AP-7.
[IMG]http://i35.************/2pph2t5.jpg[/IMG]

That's the AP-2!

nice photos i have never had feeling that Barcelona - Lleida is more than 150 km actually! it really surprises me (i never measured that).
i like those signs for beach destinations in Spain
and about 100 km/h exits - i have noticed them too, but 100 m after 100 km/h sign is 80 km/h and after it there is 60 or 50 km/h. in Spain they like to do it. so those exit ramps are actually not 100 km/h ones, right?

These could all be motorways. Every Comunidad or Province has it's own prefix, resulting in numerous prefixes throughout the country. There's also some overlap, since an A-road can either be an Autovía of the central government, but also an "Andalucía" road, which also can be a motorway-grade road.
Those motorways can merge right, examble B (Provincia road) with Autopista...

No, that section is beside Port Olímpic, 1 kilometre before Barceloneta.

you mean here? if yes, that's what i meant. and i doubt that it is on the other side of tunnel near that Repsol superstation because there is straight road, and on photo is slight right curve. just next to Port Olímpic is that underground part, right?

I think we meant the same point, but your explanation was not exact because this section is after Port Olímpic and before Torre Marenostrum skyscraper.

A2

Every morning I have to drive 60 km. From Barcelona to Igualada across the A2 highway. The part close to Barcelona city has 3 lines and there are a lot of industries and population. Since 7.00 in the morning there are a lot of heavy trucks ands a lot of cars doing the same than me.

There are some photos under these lines.

This image was taken on the A2 highway. This is situated between Zaragoza and Soria, more ore less, and his zone is very despopulated, there aren't a lot of towns there, the most populated are Ariza and Calatayud. This zone is arid and there are a few raining days.
