If I can dream a little - the best solution would seem to be to connect A8 with A33 and let A33 continue until it meets the (finished) A51, with a tunnel between Isola and the A33. Then both the A33 and AX to Nice would be of much more use.

Though I guess Frejus already serves much of the potential E-W traffic on this route. Mostly, I just don't like how empty this area looks on the map.. Damn those alps.

What about the A26, which is quite decent? The A10 could use some upgrades, I agree.

It was always terrible, it has no hard shoulders a lot of the time and is really twisty. Then there is a long bridge over a railway line somewhere in the middle of Genoa and widening that would cost a fortune.

The motorway east of Genoa towards Pisa is just as bad from what I remember.

Like the president of Veneto Luca Zaia who recently supported the "Alemagna motorway" project between Belluno and Munich, while nobody else think seriously about it.

Don't know you guys. But crossing borders without even slowing down feels so great.

Driven in that road last summer. On a motorbike is way better.

I plan to do it with a bicycle (not this year anymore) - which access is more scenic, northern or southern?

Best side is Northern, no doubt.

True. I went there via the southern, because the northern one is not free for motorized vehicles.

Toll on the northern side has not been implemented yet.

According to Fita-Cna (Italian Transportation Union), Ministries of Environment and Transportation are going to introduce lower speed limits for trucks in the Po Plain, in order to fight pollution.
Fita-Cna is obviously against this, stating that truckers in Italy have already lower limits than in other countries and must follow stricter timetables.

The Po Plain is a classic example of a large industrialized valley located in a bowl, that results in poor air quality. It's surrounded by mountains on three sides and the prevalent wind flows are probably from the west, which does not bring a lot of relief from the sea.

I doubt if a lower truck speed limit would result in a substantial improvement of air quality though. Variable speed limits have limited impact on air quality. Lower speed limits don't help during very poor air quality days, because those are caused by meteorological circumstances (inversion).

Good job on the video quite spectacular. A10 is substandard for a motorway though. There are many expressways in other countries that are significantly better designed than A10.

By the way, there is new Google Earth imagery dated August 2013 that shows the A31 under construction. The segment south of Noventa Vicentina appears to be nearly completed, but works are less advanced around Noventa Vicentina. It could be the result of separate contracts.
