Yes. On RA11 there's a 0,8 sign for the Monsampolo del Tronto exit...

Thank you very much.
The next video in 15 days will be the A10 (GE Voltri -> GE ovest -> Sopraelevata)

I don't have at this time captured videos about the A6 and A7... I plan to make this videos next spring or next summer (I make videos only in sunny conditions :-) ). But for next months, I've got some videos to produce and upload: A10 GE-Voltri - Savona (both side), A10/A8 Ventimiglia French Border (Both side), A1 Firenze-Bologna, Tangenziale Bologna, A4 Milano Est-Bergamo (4 corsie), A1 Modena-Bologna (4corsie), etc...

Autumn and winter are horrible for filming anything on the Pianura Padana Relentless fog or at least that grey sky.

Mmm, it depends. To my opinion, summer here is worse. Best days here are in autumn-winter, especially after a couple days of rain.
Some days ago I went to climb a very modest mountain on the eastern slopes of Lake Iseo. I could see as far as the Ligurian Apennines, almost 150 km away:



And last winter, from the top of Monte Gölem, I could reach as far as Monte Rosa, some 200 km away. You absolutely can't do this in summer.

The one in the first pic is.
My point is that sunny days in winter may be rarer, but they are much clearer than those in the summer.

Spot the difference.

New toll barrier in Villesse (A34):


New toll barrier in Cassibile (A18):

(by brick84)

(This is a bit unfair, since Cassibile barrier is temporary...)

I got it: Vilesse is a much greater waste of money than Cassibile...

Correct. More: at Villesse there weren't two accidents in two weeks, one caused by a truck being larger than the gate:

Strange toll in Cassibile! Is it telepass-only?

I know I might sound repetitive, but reluctance in Italy to adopt free-flow/transponder/plate-based toll causes a couple hundred million Euros in additional costs per year... not to speak of the construction costs (land, special exits) of the plazas themselves.

Yes, I'm appalled of the progress to implement all-electronic tolling in Europe. Technically it's been possible for decades, and technically it's also possible to bill foreign drivers or drivers without transponders.

All-electronic tolling has so many benefits compared to old school manual toll collection, including lower credit card fees, lower cost of toll collection, lower cost of toll plaza construction, more options for exits, fewer emissions due to stop-and-go at toll plazas, less toll plaza traffic congestion, fewer accidents at toll plazas, etcetera.

A35 BreBeMi gave up the idea of electronic tolling, but A36 Pedemontana Lombarda apparently is still for it... we'll see in 2014.

Apparently works on A35 are behind schedule so Castrezzato-Fara Olivana stretch won't open this year. They still hope to open that stretch in March but it won't make much difference: the whole autostrada is scheduled for next summer.

Works on Poggiolino section of Variante di Valico (A1) are stopped since three years ago. Apparently there is a problem, or better, a controversy, about the unearthed soils and their use. The absurd thing is that rules about the use of these soils changed just before the beginning of the works: region Emilia-Romagna approved to project before they changed, so works there are basically done; region Tuscany slightly after.
In an interview the deputy mayor of Barberino del Mugello stated that in the sixties, during works for the original A1, a similar problem arose and it was solved in under a week. New procedures extended jurisdiction to no less than 24 authorities who can't agree on anything.

Yesterday a flooding by river Oglio destroyed 75 m of SS 42 in Valcamonica (province Brescia). Today the road was reopened with one lane only.

It's almost a miracle that they reopened it in just a day.

It was absolutely essential since it's the only link between upper and lower valley. Traffic was provisionally redirected on a mountain little road unsuitable for trucks.

When there is an important connection in question and in such circumstances there can be very fast actions to reconstruct roads.

When there was earthquake in Japan 2,5 years ago, some important motorway was damaged and reconstruction was done in just 6 days. I remember many articles on internet and newspapers all over the world that this could happen "only in Japan" - no, in serious conditions very fast repair can done everywhere.
