Amazing work guys!! especially Cicerón & ChrisZwolle!

I should take some photos of the new A-22 between Almacellas and Lleida! It's quite amazing!

A bad pic from "El Segre" newspaper:

Do you know the numbers for Madrid alone? To me it seems the Madrid region has more motorways than some european countries. Even comparable north american cites can't match the density of the Madrid network.

Yes, the current motorway network in the Madrid community is 824 km, but I have to add some rural sections like A-1 up north to the Somosierra are also included in that.

The future network is 1.161 kilometers of motorway-grade roads, but I also have to add most of the network's length consists of 4-lane motorways, especially those that fall under the Comunidad Madrid (3-digit roads). Only the M-30 is really wide, it is also the busiest motorway in all of Europe (312,000 AADT on the east side of Madrid). Most other wider motorways are six to eight lanes.

The future bypass of Bilbao, called Supersur (AP-8?). Pictures taken by CARABAZA on Dec 8 2009:

Disculpad la calidad de algunas fotos, están tomadas desde un autobús xD


Aproximandonos al viaducto de Trápaga desde Barakaldo...
































































Aquí parecen terminarse las obras de adaptación de la A-8 para dar cabida a más carriles para el primer tramo de la Supersur (dirección Behobia)

BI-30 according to Spanish wikipedia.

Nice photos, you have very hard condition to built motorways (I mean mountainous area) opposite to Poland which is mostly flat, we have mountains only on the south. BTW, I have a question to professional Spanish engineers (if they are on this forum). How popular in Spain is bridge construction technology called "incremental launching"? If you could give me some photos showed using of this technology in Spain I would be very glad.

Incremental launching is fairly popular, if proyectos are anything to go by--I have seen a few (some of which may still be available for download) where it is a suggested erection technique for long valley viaducts.

Thanks. Maybe some links to photos from executing incremental launching in Spain?

It's hard to find good pictures of motorway construction. It's easier to find the ones related to high speed lines:

Silleda, Galicia:


This is a very good animation that shows the different methods of bridge construction. It's in Spanish though:
http://www.euskalyvasca.com/es/multi...cion_viaductos

It's the webpage of the "Basque Y", an Y-shaped high speed line being built between Vitoria, Bilbao and San Sebastián. If the link posted above doesn't work, try this:
http://www.euskalyvasca.com/es/multi_infog.html

And then click on "01/07/2008 Construcción de viaductos".

El tramo es corto, pero la calidad de la autovia es impresionante!

Las fotos estan hechas desde la rotonda donde se juntan A2 y A22, a la salida de Lleida, hasta el fin del tramo en la salida de Raimat.

Why are the mainline direction signs using Carretera Convencional rather than Autopista? Does this prefigure future changes in Norma 8.1-IC?

I have found an interesting video (though is for the construction of an HSR bridge in the new southeast corridor) -> http://www.proin3d.org/VideosVirtuales.html

This graph was published in the january edition of the monthly magazine published by Fomento, it shows the infrastructure investments for the last ten years. It gives an idea how they are able to build the massive amount of infrastructure, hundreds of new km of road and rail every year, not to forget the humongous port and airport expansions.
Key:

Blue = Rail

Red = Road

Green = Airports

Purple = Ports
