I was curious about Italy.

I know taxi is expensive in Western Europe, not so much in Eastern Europe, but salaries are also not great.

Almost everything is very expensive in Italy. It's even truer when regarding their salaries.

What area is it?
It looks like a terminal toll plaza (i.e. situated along the motorway and not on a exit).

I don't know if it's just me but I can't open Chris's link.

Depicted is junction TEEM (from left to right) - Variante di Liscate (going towards the center, where toll barrier is). Here is the location on openstreetmap:

I can open Chris's link but it points to open countryside (no existing roads, no street view, no evidence of roadworks).

It's the same location as Spinoza's link though. Google Earth has a historical imagery layer that often features newer imagery than the default imagery in Google Maps (but of slightly poorer quality).

Region Lombardy published last May expropriation procedures, so I guess they're still for it.

Green - works completed or sectors already modernized on previous investment programs
Yellow - works ongoing
Brown - preliminary works / preparation for start of construction
Light Blue - tender process ongoing
Purple - contracts rescinded due to judicial procedures
Red - definitive design and/or funding pending

The sector opening is part of the yellow one on the Southernmost part of the map.

Parts of the new alignment can be seen on Google Maps

The SS106 is the less known sister project of A3. It will ultimately provide almost-entirely expressway-grade travel between Reggio Calabria and Taranto. It has several expressway connections with A3 forming a "grid" in Calabria and Basilicata. However, SS106 is very different: it goes mostly through gentle coastal plains or hills, at low or sea level elevations. The coast there is very different, most towns and cities are sprawled along the coast, there are many beach resorts.


Calabria, opens to traffic a stretch of 10.5 km of new SS 106 "Jonica"

Opens to traffic an important stretch of 10.5 km of new "106 Ionian" (Lots 6, 7 and 8), between Palizzi and Caulonia, including the release of Marina di Gioiosa Jonica, in the province of Reggio Calabria.
