Anyway, with the new laws about electrical consumption and light pollution, these kind of lamps will probably disappear.

Yes, you are right! Most of the countries have its own standards of lighting. But a lot of luminaries can be finding in more than one country. For example are most of the luminaries at the roads here in Sweden same models of luminaries like they have in Germany, Netherlands and also in the UK. Only a few countries here in Europe have luminaries in American style and Spain is one of them. Also in Italy they have a lot of luminaries in American style. I don’t know why Spain have so many luminaries in American style. Maybe they found them good and had a good price for them and then they were standard in Spain. And when something is standard it is easy to continue with that standard

I think we have a regulation but maybe it's too flexible

Nice pics. A-1 should be 2x3 all the way to El Molar though. How are the plans for R-1?

Here you can see how the first-generation autovías were built. The left carriageway was the old national road N-I, while the one on the right was added later.

BTW, where's that plate from? I mean the Mercedes. Morocco?

Some pictures of the future A-8 between Unquera and Llanes, the only stretch left between Santander and Gijón.

Some pictures of the A-73 Burgos-Santander. Almost half of it (40/83 km) is U/C.

Rotonda provisional. Ahora mismo hay 3 accesos: uno desde Burgos (por el que se entra en la foto), otro hacia Santander enfrente, y por la derecha de doble sentido de la ronda norte (va hacia los túneles).



Trazado Burgos-Quintanaortuño pero por la actual N-623. La nueva autovía discurrirá paralela al oeste.



Al poco de pasar Sotopalacios, se desvía en 2 tramos: CL-629 (hacia Villarcayo) y N-623 hacia Santander.



Ya pasado quintanaortuño (seguimos por la N-623), vemos una estructura, y se aprecia bastante bien la plataforma de la futura autovía.



Aquí es donde morirá el primer tramo de la autovía A-73 en el tramo Burgos-Ubierna. Un poco antes de este pueblo, se unirá la A-73 a la N-623. Cuando esté en obras el resto del trazado, irá paralelo a la nacional pero por el oeste.



Dejamos Ubierna a la izquierda, pasando un pequeño túnel.







Nos acercamos al punto en el que la calzada deja elegir entre la N-623 (a Santander por el páramo de masa y puerto del escudo) o la N-627 hacia la izquierda (hasta Aguilar de Campoo, para conectar con la A-67)







Una vez tomada la N-623, (el resto del trazado de la A-73 irá paralelo a la N-627), al poco llegamos a la zona en la que se construirá la carretera que he comentado en un post anterior de unión de la N-623 con la CL-629, será en la parte derecha de las fotos.





Por último, una foto en la que se ve el tramo más cercano a Aguilar en obras, ya puede apreciarse la plataforma.



Eso es todo, como veis son fotos hechas desde el coche, a ver si alguien se anima a ir a pie de obra.

-B-40 in Barcelona
-SE-40 in Seville
-Hiperronda in Málaga
-Supersur in Bilbao
-VA-30 in Valladolid
-The new AP-8 in San Sebastián
-S-30 in Santander
-BU-30 in Burgos
-The southern bypass of Lleida
-The third ring of Coruña
-The southern ring of Toledo (CM-40)
-MU-30 in Murcia
-GR-30 in Granada

A photo of the B-40 in Barcelona between the towns of Terrassa and Viladecavalls, to be opened in june:

cuota? This is Spain, not Mexico. In Spain, toll is called "Peaje".

I counted all roads that are built to freeway-standards, so both Autopistas (toll) and Autovías (toll free).

I think Spain have very good standard at the roads. The only thing I don’t like in Spain is the signs. Something with them are to complicated. They have exit numbers and that’s good. but the rest of them looks to complicated for me. I prefer the signs in Portugal.

Sorry if this has been answered already, I know it's a bit old...

Here in Spain, E- signals are "routes" and all other denominations are roads, an "E-XX" signal may cover more than 1 road...

In example, the E-05 (or E-5) route covers A-1, the east side of M-40 and A-4.

M-40 have up to 3 E- routes in some places...
