Chris, that spot was a rather unfortunate one: first works were tendered in 2001 but the contract was annulled on 2nd January 2002; works were re-tendered but again the contract was annulled on 18th January 2008; this is the third time works are tendered (October 2011). Let's hope third time's the charm (completion is due next November).

The "autoporto" is closer, since it's just off the motorway, then Gorizia and Nova Gorica. However .5km is nothing when talking about a 30k town, depending the place you're going it may be 12 or 17 km.

Just a matter of time. 9 out of 10 automatic tellers in Italy still don't accept new notes:

A4 Venezia - Trieste

How far along is the widening of A4 to 2x3 lanes between Mestre and Palmanova?

You can watch here the state of works. It's in Italian but should be understandable. Apparently works are ongoing only on the first lot Quarto d'Altino-San Donā.

Thanks. There is a lot of work to be done, the majority hasn't even started construction.

Also, do you know how far along the modernization of A4 between Novara and Milano is? They are supposedly adding shoulders to that motorway.

Not many news: works should be completed between Greggio and Novara Ovest, and ongoing between Novara Ovest and Marcallo-Mesero. Works, including the "variante" of Bernate Ticino, which involves moving the Autostrada on a new alignment, should be completed in 2016.

Last weekend I went over Quarto d'Altino-San Donā section (no pictures as I was on the bus). 15% completion on website is not correct - more like 70% for roadworks and 90% for objects. New overpasses are done, close to being finished is also new westbound bridge over Piave river. I don't know, if they plan to demolish old Piave bridge and construct new one or they will merge 4 lanes on current bridge for eastbound traffic. Also quite some asphalt has been laid already.

However I have some strange feeling that widening further to Palmanova will proceed quite slowly.

Nice and comprehensive map, especially for Villese - Gorizia section.

Well, overpasses are the first thing they build when enlarging a motorway.
According to this website the section should be ready by Q2 2015.

AFAIK the bridge over Piave will be demolished and rebuilt.
