Always on SS36

This one is the city of Lecco, on Como lake, near Milano

[IMG]http://i24.************/rr8it0.jpg[/IMG]

Superstrada SS36 comes from SW, crosses a mountain by a tunnel, crosses the river and bypasses the city completely underground, to go out and on along the lake side

as you can see in this map

[IMG]http://i23.************/2iszdb4.jpg[/IMG]

Getting closer to see the tunnels entrances

Secondarian exits and entrances of the tunnel within the city

I have driven that superstrada a few years ago. The quality of pavement was awful north of Lecco.

Genius Loci, hai qualche immagine di interventi di "mitigazione ambientale" ?

Genius Loci, did you have some pics about "mitigazione ambientale"?

A5 - Valle d'Aosta

Here's something to refresh this thread after all those ugly Google Earth pictures :

A5 - first batch of pictures: Ivrea - just before Aoste/Aosta:

































And the first snowy peak appears somewhere before Aoste:

You already did an awesome job with Slovenian motorways, I forgive you!

Too bad there isn't an Italian Verso on this forum who would picture all of Italy's motorways!

^ Italian Verso, haha! Well, that would take "a bit" more money for fuel and pay tolls.

What I like very much on Italian motorways are good cat's eyes, very visible even at rainy night.

Very nice, wyqtor!

Very beautifull motorway!

Why are there limitations to 80 and even 60?!
It doesn't seem to be a reason for that, at least the geometry of the motorway looks ok.

those 60 limits are because of roadworks ahead (look little farer, you'll see other signs, and on this 60 sign you have yellow blinker, too).

80 - dunno. probably crowded section or dangerous exit, something like that

Thanks! But I must tell you that you've seen nothing yet! Some of the follow-up pictures I will post seem simply unreal.
