Bad weather is delaying the opening of the second stretch of A31 "Valdastico" south, from Montegaldella-Longare to Albettone-Barbarano. This section should have been opened in May, but according to Attilio Schneck, president of "Autostrada Brescia-Padova SpA", it can't be opened before end of June-15 July, tops.

Albeit small (100k inh) Ancona is a nightmare to drive in. I've never done it myself, apart from going to Ancona Nord interchange to the railway station, without going into the inner city. Ancona is located between the sea and a complex system of hills and mountains (Monte Conero above all), some of which prone to landslide - like the one in '82 which erased an entire borough. Tunnels, narrow roads and steep ascents are the norm.

yep, Ancona is really weird to drive. for instance, following indications to the port from an exit Ancona sud, you will end up here. the feeling is precious: after toll booths you see really nice indications to the port, you enter to the city, but then suddenly you find yourself in some weird center-like part of the city after which you come to that place indicating end of Ancona
i really don't know why there are no indications to port using Asse nord-sud

In my opinion this junction is a massive idiocy, I would like to know what Messina locals think of that concrete hell.

And let's not forget that all that ugly junction was done for nothing -- it would have served as junction for the Ponte sullo Stretto, but the project was dropped.

The bridge will be ultimately built.

I think it will be constructed at some point as well. Personally I really like the Norwegian concept of a floating cable-stayed or suspension bridge. That is cheaper than one mega span and appears more flexible during earthquakes. The offshore industry uses this technique for decades.

I bet nothing will be built in the next half century.

Yes, but some structural problems on a viaduct are delaying the exit ramps opening.

When A3 will be completed, the SS106 expressway too, when Sicily will have properly maintained highways, when there will be a fast train between Salerno and Reggio Calabria, when Naples waste will be recycled and disposed properly, when schools, hospitals and universities in southern Italy will work as good as in the rest of western Europe, when the government and institutions will really start to fight corruption and organized crime, yes, the south will need the bridge. You don't buy a gold Rolex if you don't have money to eat...

Had your logic be followed to the heart, we wouldn't even have A3 to begin with.

Infrastructure can act as a catalyst for development and growth

awesome view

The Taromina exit is really an interesting one.

By the way, I'm not following the last hiccups by CAS (it just annoys me all this political stone-throwing that goes with CAS and its highways/projects). Has CAS sorted out their organizational mess?

I so badly want some foreign toll road operator to takeover all CAS assets
