The 3.3 km Oria tunnel (sometimes called Valsolda) opened today after 22 years of stop and go works:

The portals are exactly here: https://maps.google.ch/maps?saddr=SS...p=0&sz=18&z=14

Nice to see the new tunnel being wider and higher than old ones. (although the one on the second pic is fine)

That last photo looks rather dangerous... is that the permanent situation?

tunnels on this section also need to be rebuilt. https://maps.google.ch/maps?saddr=A9...p=0&sz=13&z=13

I can't disagree.

Why?

Anyway, most traffic will go in the tunnel on the left, leaving the existing road to tourists and the few local residents.

I don't see economically affordable alternatives - on the left there is the mountain, on the right the lake - like a Norwegian fjord on a smaller scale.

Other photos of that road: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...4&postcount=42

The "alcune foto della tratta che la galleria dovrebbe sostituire" photos shows the old road replaced by the new tunnel (to be kept for local traffic, it can bee seen also on Google Street View), then just below there are photos of the road replaced by the Porlezza tunnel (1080 metres). This old road is still open to motorized traffic but the western access has been closed, so there is no point of going there by car (and at the end there is not even space to turn it easily).

The last photo is a curious boat used to clean the lake.

Very narrow tunnel for such an important road. I remember a motorhome that bumped into the tunnel's ceiling.

It is not clearly visible - side incoming lane crosses just one outbound lane and it looks totally visible fro both sides. It is not ideal solution, but it is not more dangerous than any other similar intersection.

What is some construction going above this portal (as seen on GM)? Is there any extension of the tunnel planned in direction of Switzerland?

There is already a short (~400 m?) tunnel between the new one and the border, until recently used one-way in the direction of the border (I don't know if that has been changed to two way - this tunnel would be wide enough).

There are plans for another tunnel between this new one and Porlezza, and one from the border to the new Vedeggio-Cassarate tunnel (in Lugano, linking with the A2), but none of them will become reality in the enar future (that is, in the next 20/30 years).

In the new tunnel there is a cavern, obviously planned for an underground jucntion. But I'm sure it will be useless for the next 30 to 60 years.

It can be seen here, at around 2.00: http://la1.rsi.ch/home/networks/la1/...low#tabEdition
