It appears that Rome is really an eternal city, where big constructions take millennia to complete
Well... yes.

It should open in branches, first of which in June 2014.

What do they smoke over there?

EDIT: Now I understand! "Corda molle", literally means "slack rope", but "molle" also means springs, like this:


They just literally translated - wrongly - the road's nickname... OMFG...
LOL

Anyway I don't see anything wrong if GOOGLE maps use GOOGLE translator

Someone else notice the Google translation

"I didn't know in Flero we had a piece of America... Rec Rope Spring... it sounds like something of GTA... or El Paso, Texas."

Works for the dynamic fourth lane on A4, between Sesto San Giovanni and Milano Certosa are ongoing. This 10-km stretch bears 180 thousand vehicles per day, with peaks of 6000 vehicles per hour in each direction. Works should be completed by 2016.

Drove today on A14. They opened third lane on southbound carriageway around Rimini nord. Now you can drive continuously with three lanes to Pesaro.

Both halves of the motorway were opened? That would be very fast, on Google maps aerial view from last year it looks that one half haven't even start a construction.

At 3:14 it looks strange, as there would be only one carriageway modernized.

Otherwise it is amazing how large number of politicians and other "important" persons came to the opening.

Service Area at A1 x A24

There seems to be a service area inside the junction of A1 and A24:

https://maps.google.com/maps?q=rooma...talia&t=h&z=17

I wonder why this area is located inside the junction accessible to those traveling on A24 only. If it were placed a few kilometers east or west, it would serve those travellers moving from A1 to A24, too. Some sort of a licensing issue?

That part of A24 was opened in 1969 while the A1 between Fiano Romano and San Cesareo only in 1988. When the rest area was built on the A24 this interchange wasn't planned.

Similar situation: the "Bazzera" rest area on the A57 near Venice. When it was built (1970 circa) it was part of the main motorway A4 Torino - Trieste. Since the opening of the Passante di Mestre in 2009 (Dolo - Quarto d'Altino), the rest area is now accessible only from the A57 (Mestre bypass, formerly part of the A4) and not from the A4 itself.

Another Google Maps blooper:
Largo della Barriera Vecchia (a square in Trieste) signed 150km north near Tarvisio.

According to Google the highest point of the Slovenian road network lies in Italy (apparently because the place is shown twice in the satellite view).

Borders accuracy are one of the weakest aspects of Google Maps.
