This one did. I think all coaches serving countries where seatbelts are required have seatbelts installed.

The bus driver was Spanish, had 16 years experience, rested 19 hours before the trip, didn't drive too fast (preliminary), the bus was only 2 years old and the driver didn't have any alcohol.

Sad news. Rest in peace.


I bring more SE-40, these ones are from the tunnel under the Guadalquivir river:

These drawings are taken from the proyectos de construcción for 48-SE-4520A and 48-SE-4520B. They can be downloaded in full here:

They are fun to read once you have downloaded them--which takes a while; they are over 3 GB each.

Is there a up-to-date version of this map?

Nice.

Are there other (interesting) project-data available on the website (on this overview-page)? It seem's so, but I can't speak Spanish, so I can't tell...

Yup, there are some interesting projects. Decoding ring: the file number ("Expediente") will end with a letter. C = roadway, F = railway. The SEITT file number is not the same as the Ministerio de Fomento "clave" (key number).

Some of the projects which still have documentation available on the SEITT site include:

* A-2 Barcelona-French border (Medinyá-Orriols length)

* A-44 Autovía Sierra Nevada (Santa Fe-Las Gabias)

* A-32 Linares-Albacete (two lengths: Villacarrillo bypass and Torreperogil-Villacarrillo)

* Extension of Autovía del Baix Llobregat

* A-8 Autovía del Cantábrico (Otur-Villapedre)

* At least one other length of SE-40 (there are actually four major projects going on now which involve SE-40: trans-Guadalquivir tunnel, tunnel west portal to Almensilla, Almensilla to A-49/E-1 interchange, and A-49/E-1 widening west of Seville through the SE-40 interchange)

The main Fomento projects page is here:

http://www.fomento.es/MFOM/LANG_CAST...ios_centrales/

The easiest way to pick out the big contracts is just to look for the high estimates. It includes stuff both big and small, and my personal favorites among the smaller stuff are the signing contracts (señalización). I think there is at least one (maybe two) lengths of the A-23, at least one length of the A-11 Autovía del Duero, etc. The most ambitious and expensive contract in there (at €207 million) is an extension of the MU-30 Murcia ring road with (if I remember right) at least two pergolas to carry the road over an irrigation canal at extreme skew angles. (No other country seems to love pergolas as much as the Spanish.)

There has been some recent openings at the end of this month.

A-66: "Autovía de la Plata" stretch Montejo - Guijuelo 13,1 km. long.
A-67: "Autovía de la Meseta" - 3 stretches covering Santillana de Campos & Alar del Rey, which finally completes fully this Autovia between Palencia & Torrelavega (183 km. in total).

A-7: "Autovía del Mediterráneo" stretch La Herradura - Taramay (Granada) 9,1 km. long.

Some pics of this last one:

¡Agua va!






Salida hacia Herrera de Pisuerga y enlace hacia la Valdavia y Cervera.




















Quien tenga como destino "Sotobañado y Priorato" esta es su salida...














A la derecha (Oeste) queda una amplia esplanada, quizá sea terreno reservado para una estación de servicio...

















Otro área de descanso... de aspecto un poquitín más arbolado que el de Herrera ...

I've downloaded the project for the A-12 + LO-20 connection here in Logroño:


(Click here for the detailed maps)

Apparently they're going to build the bridge in one side of the river, and then to slide it over the water, in order not to affect the bed . Sorry if there are too many pictures in this page (and sorry for the size too), but I have to post it

Spanish highways are of top quality, they only lack good rest areas with al needed facilities, whoch are only to be fount on tolled highways. So it's quite hard to driver several hundred kilometers on Spanish highways without heving those facilities which are provided on German, Belgian, French and Dutch highways.

I don't it think it would be a good idea to drive for example from Burgos (end of tolled highway section) via Valladolid and Meseta Highway till Sevilla ...

Nice Spanish motorways. But I have a question to you. So far you have built 14000km of autopistas and autovias, do you have further plans to build more?

I don't really understand you, each some kilometres in every highway there is a rest area, as simply that every bus line has to stop each 2 hours (the law) in a rest area, so.....

what are needed facilities for you?, a bed, a shower?---->h-o-t-e-l ¬_¬

Yes, just to connect everywhere with everywhere, but it's not easy.. because a highway in Spain means: lots of tunnels, lots of bridges, lots of bioways, etc, etc, etc, expensive not.... the next (mountains everywhere)

The future highways are the light ones of this map: (the spanish plan of highways 2005-2020)

The interior of Spain, between Madrid and the east/south coast still doesn't have a very dense network of motorways... which means long travels on Carretera Nacionales, but there are also few large places that would warrant a motorway.

For instance, there's not much between places like Badajoz and Ciudad Real, or Jaén and Albacete.

A 31 de diciembre de 2007 la red de vías de alta capacidad estaba compuesta por 14.689 km
I'm not sure if this figure also includes regular 4 lane roads... "vías de alta capacidad" (roads of high capacity)

It ought to be around 15.000 kilometers now, which should mean there's not so much discussion anymore if the Spanish system is equal or larger than France/Germany's system. The Spanish system is clearly larger, and also growing (much) faster, so it's the 3rd largest in the world.
