Wow, lots of interest.

Accordin to Ripoli citizens association, viaduct Rio Piazza on A1 moved 3 cm in 5 months. Gennarino Tozzi, co-chair of Autostrade per l'Italia's network development division, stated that there is nothing to worry about until the displacement reaches "13-14 cm". Meanwhile, he announced strenghtening works, just for precaution.
Ripoli citizens demand a stop to works, and a change of plans: "The tunnel must be dug deeper within the mountain, and at a higher altitude". Geologists say that a massive sudden landslide is extremely unlikely and with constant monitoring it can be safely foreseen".

I feel I'm the only one reading this thread.

Third lane has been opened on the whole A9, direction North, 10 months ahead of schedule:

Nice. When will the southbound 3rd lane open?

According to Italian Wikipedia, the connecting A8 will be widened to 2x5 lanes. Is there any construction going on there?

They're going to open the southbound third lane by next July, 8 months ahead of schedule.

Works on TEM, the External East Tangenziale of Milan, are going to start next June 11th, in the territory of Trucazzano.
http://www.lestradedellinformazione....colo10120.html
Works will last 1130 days, for the completion of the whole 32-km-long autostrada. However, works on the so-called "Arco TEM", a 3-km-long section of the autostrada due to connect BreBeMi with the city of Milan, through superstrade "Rivoltana" and "Cassanese", will have to be completed by next year, when BreBeMi is going to open.

2 billion for 32 km? Quite a lot. I presume there are a lot of cut&covers.

Yes it's quite a lot of money, but there are many other works within the project: conversion and building of other roads, construction of cycling paths and even many works on local railroads and Milan subway system.

Fortunately they will serve more than just the Messina bridge... otherwise they're going to be useless for quite some time...

Apparently, what had been speculated has been confirmed: the new Frejus Safety Tunnel, under construction already, will be converted to be a road tunnel instead.

That way, each bore will only carry traffic in one direction.

I passed through Frejus last year. I was alone all the way, speed limit is 50 km/h at both ends and 30 km/h (thirty kilometers-per-hour!!) at the center. The second tunnel will allow the limits to be raised, I don't know about capacity, though. It seemed to me that the single bore was already too much.

There is no need for increased capacity on that corridor, but two tubes are much safer. A good solution. I do think the tolls are too steep though.
