Spain has got good roads, exept for service staitons, you have to, many times, to leave the motorway.

Depends on which type of road. There are always service stations on the autopistas that are located immediately next to the road itself. On autovias it's a bit trickier, sometimes you'll find them as conveniently placed as on autopistas, but often they will sign for a station that's a bit away from the througway.

There is another one at the other end of the A-92N, when entering Andalucia from Murcia on the A-91. I guess this road is the pride of Andalucia.

Was the A-92 named after the Expo '92 in Sevilla? I believe this Autovía was build for that very reason...

I believe it was. But it wasn't finished in 1992. I only think the part Sevilla-Granada was ready by then. The first time I rode on it was in 1996 coming from Murcia. They were still constructing the A-92N by then, with some 80 kms missing to Puerto Lumbreras (on the present-day A-7) and the flyover at the A-92M wasn't ready either. I don't think they had even started construction on the part between Guadix and Almeria.

That figure include dual carrigeways with levelcrossings. The latest figure I've seen published by Fomento (late 2008) is somewhere in the range of 12000km of Autopista/Autovía.

That doesn't really mean anything, Portugal has some kick ass autopistas too, that one is just probably very old...
A-66 in Asturias for instance doesn't look that great anymore after they added some lanes. It is a thirty-something year old highway full of patches on some stretches.

Quite uncommon indeed. And old, since it depicts the former national roads. The new one should be something like this:

You're right The A-92N (Norte) and A-92M (Málaga) were built later.

According to Fomento's statistics, there were 10,561 km of "vías de gran capacidad" dependent on the Spanish state in 2007, of which 2,479 were tolled autopistas, 7,346 autovías and free autopistas and 736 de doble calzada (of dual carriagway). That's 9,825 km of autopistas+autovías. Now you have to add those dependent on minor entities (drawn on orange in the map) and the new highways opened in 2008-2009.

Thanks for the pics, mate!



BTW, for those who speak Spanish, there's an interesting article about the new bridge in the Bay of Cádiz, which is 25% built now. Here it is:
