I hadn't noticed that. Of course Switzerland doesn't count (you could get by in Basel with just Italian!), but elsewhere I have traveled recently there haven't been many Italians, French or Spanish. It's Germans and Russians which seem to be everywhere, but then again I speak those languages so perhaps I simply notice them more.

I don't know if it's large enough for a river, but I followed it on gmaps, I think its source is in Brda but it's not clear. however that bridge looks huge, at least for a such a small river?

Looks like it's called "Birša" in Slovenian, and yes, its source is in Slovenia. But the village Versa is called "Vrša" in Slovenian.

Hehe it's really "king size" bridge We can say that FVG (Autovie Venete) has planty of money for road bridges. At least if we look that massive roundabout at Gorizia, or viaduct at Villesse on RA17 (A34).
And best of the best, roundabout is still U/C for more than 3 years...

Today the tender for projecting, building and managing the A22 extension from A1 to Sassuolo (15 km) has been awarded to Autostrada del Brennero SpA and its subcontractors Impresa Pizzarotti S.p.A., Coopsette Soc. Coop. and others.

It looks like it would run parallel to a 4-lane superstrada.

What kind of industry are they into in the Sassoulo area? There's are quite a number of industrial estates along the foothills there which appear to be in the same kind of industry.

Sassuolo is leader in Italy in producing ceramics.

Makes you wonder why we need to build this highway actually...tangenziale di Modena already gets to Sassuolo. I really don't know

Why not build it? Exit Modena nord on A1 is to congested, especillay with freight traffic going to Sassuolo. And tangenziale di Modena... pavement on this superstrada is in catastrophic condition, especially in section towards Sassuolo.
Sometimes I'm thinking why Modena doesn't have exit, let's say "Modena centro", where tangenziale goes over the A1!?

Typical crazy route to get from one road to another:

The junction between A1 and Tangenziale is the only crazy part of this route.
Anyway I've seen many worst junctions built in the last decade...

It's a junction between a tolled and a non-tolled road. It can't be direct and it has to be a little curvy.

It's too curvy anyway, like every new junction.

This "Italian style" junctionplaning has some disadvantages, but also some nice plus sides.

It's of course sometimes complicated to get to the main route, but once aour are on it, local traffic won't bother you as much as it would e. g. here in germany, where junctions are close together and lotz of traffic uses the Autobahn for just going one or two junctions and thus hindering the non-local traffic.

I like the coillector-road concepts like Verona or Udine has them, with parallel, untolled lines for the local traffic. Milan doesen't have them, and driving the A 4 from Novara to Bergamo is consequently often a mess.

Of course, if traffic becomes to dense, the best concept of road construction will fail.

- A31 "Valdastico south": Montegaldella-Longare / Albettone-Barbarano stretch (7.9 km) will open next 26th June, at 3 pm.

- A4, third lane in Veneto: according to Autovie Venete, works are going slow because of many thefts in construction sites. In Noventa di Piave construction site alone, thieves stole 400k € worth of equipment (batteries, diesel oil, two excavators, many generators).

I am also wondering. The new A22 will only improve the connection to the north and to the west, but not to the east and not to Modena! Is the traffic from Sassuolo to Verona/Parma so high? Or are there plans for a further extension to the sea, to Massa or to Lucca?
