L'ammodernamento della S.S. 284 "Occidentale Etnea“
7 Maggio 2010
L'ANAS ha avviato i lavori di sistemazione e di adeguamento della S.S. 284 "Occidentale Etnea", nel tratto compreso tra gli attuali km 20 e km 15+900, in prossimità dell'abitato di Bronte, per uno sviluppo complessivo della nuova opera di 3,8 km.
La piattaforma stradale, che attualmente presenta una larghezza variabile tra 7 e 8 m, verrà adeguata secondo le caratteristiche plano-altimetriche e di sezione trasversale richieste dalle nuove Norme per le strade extraurbane secondarie, prevedendo quindi l'ampliamento della carreggiata attuale, che sarà composta da due corsie da 3,75 m, una per senso di marcia e da banchine laterali pavimentate da 1,5 m, per una larghezza complessiva di 10,5 m. Circa un terzo del nuovo tracciato sarà realizzato in variante.
L'investimento complessivo è di oltre 38 milioni.
Il tracciato sarà caratterizzato da una serie significativa di opere d'arte, quali i due viadotti in acciaio e calcestruzzo denominati Ciapparo e Madonna della Vena, lunghi rispettivamente 85 e 270 m, e le tre gallerie artificiali Ciapparo, Madonna della Vena I e Madonna della Vena II, per una lunghezza complessiva di oltre 350 m.

In Veneto there is the former SS465 that not only isn't paved but is also officially closed to traffic (even if there aren't physical barriers, just signs).
http://maps.google.it/maps?q=Campolo...,340.8,,0,0.37

http://maps.google.it/maps?q=Campolo...60.08,,0,-2.05

http://maps.google.it/maps?q=Campolo...,83.06,,0,3.65

At the junction with the remaining (paved, open) part of the SS465 and the SS619 the old, now cul-de-sac road has still the priority!

Yes, there are some other examples of closed SS roads. For instance, SS614 "of the Maielletta":
http://goo.gl/maps/dYQeA

Or SS 76 "of Esino Valley":
http://goo.gl/maps/cKjgA

But Maniva-Crocedomini road is open during summer.


Some news:
- Valfabbrica-Pianello works on SS318 expressway, within the scope of Project Quadrilatero in central Italy (Ancona-Perugia expressway) risk closure due to financial problems of its sub-contractors. Works are stopped now and workers were laid off. The other works on SS318, Valfabbrica-Sospertole, have no problems for now.

- Region Tuscany gave green light on the so-called "Variante di San Donato" in the framework of A1 enlargement, between Firenze Sud and Incisa Valdarno. The current stretch of A1 will be used entirely for northbound traffic (like they did between Firenze sud and Firenze nord), and a "variante" will be created for southbound traffic, including a 1km, three-lane tunnel.

- SS42 SSV (Strada Scorrimento Veloce, a 1+1 expressway) between Nadro di Ceto and Berzo Demo (8 km in province of Brescia) will open February 6th at 3pm.

"Mantua me genuit" (Mantua gave birth to me) is the famous incipit of Virgil's tomb epitaph. I just had no quote about Bologna so I just improvised ("In Bononia vixi annis XII", I lived in Bologna for 12 years).

Nice video!
What is the speed limit in tunnels on A23? 100 kmh, or 110 kmh (as on the Autostrada di Brennero from Bolzano to the Austrian border)?

Usually the general limit (130).

I find it generous, because only the first two tunnels have emergency shoulder lanes.

I find it awesome and fuel saving it can be like that because the traffic is low.

There is a suggested (but non mandatory) 80kmh in the curvy section over Cavazzo lake.

Any updates about the construction of A12 between Livorno and Roma?

I'm okay with this speed limit (130 kmh), tunnels included. Which reminds me to the fact that the speed limit on Croatian A6 is artificially low (110 kmh), in tunnels only 100 kmh. (That's why I'm asking.)
