Very good news indeed.

Now let's hope they start working on Modica-Gela soon

I hope that, during this time, they'll do something to start the works for the next stretches ('Scicli' and 'Ragusa')

Thanks. Are there two or more sections? What's the length of the sections? From where to where?

Rosolini-Modica are lots 6-7-8. Lots 9-10-11 from Modica to Ragusa, unknown number of lots (no preliminary project yet) from Ragusa to Gela.

According to ANAS, works for the doubling of Colle di Tenda/Col de Tende tunnel are imminent. Works were formally delivered to the construction company (Grandi Lavori Fincosit/Toto Costruzioni Generali) last 21st November, but only now they are really ready to begin.

A couple of news about autostrade:

- official opening ceremony of A35 "BreBeMi" will be held next July 1st by President Giorgio Napolitano.
- next March works on the first lot of A52 "North Milan Tangenziale" completion are going to begin.

If he is still in office

Which lot is the first one? I guess it is an upgrade of the existing SP46, isn't it? Is it planned to upgrade the entire SP46 (renewing and adding hard shoulders?) or adding a 2nd carriageway on the last 1.5km section with 1x2 lanes only? To be completed until 2015?

Presidents of the Republic rarely quit office. In Italy it happened only once in 65 years (Giovanni Leone, 1978) - and offices last 7 years. Only death can prevent Napolitano from being in office at that date (he's 89).
It's Prime Ministers we change "like a girl changes clothes" (blessed be Katy Perry)

EDIT: I stand corrected, it happened three times. Segni quit because he suffered from a stroke, Leone and Cossiga to avoid impeachment

Quote:

LA TRATTA - Il progetto complessivo di completamento della Tangenziale Nord Milano prevede il potenziamento, a livello autostradale, del collegamento stradale esistente Rho-Monza, nella tratta A8 (Baranzate)-A52 (Paderno Dugnano), con la realizzazione di una strada a doppia corsia per senso di marcia più emergenza e una complanare per gli spostamenti locali. Il nuovo itinerario proposto si sviluppa a nord dell'abitato di Baranzate e prosegue, riqualificando l'attuale itinerario provinciale fino a Paderno Dugnano, affiancandosi nella parte finale all'attuale ex SS35 Milano-Meda' fino a raccordarsi direttamente con la Tangenziale Nord A52. La Rho-Monza costituisce la chiusura dell'anello tangenziale di Milano, realizzando di fatto il completamento della Tangenziale Nord di Milano per la tratta da Paderno Dugnano (A52) al Sistema Fiera/Expo (A8) e costituendo una alternativa al tratto urbano della A4, costantemente congestionato.
(Lombardia Notizie)
Basically it's an enlargement of current SP46 between A8 in Baranzate and current A52 in Paderno Dugnano. It will not end in SS35 like current SP46 but it will run aligned with it in the last stretch until the junction with A52 in Paderno Dugnano.

I think (but I'm not entirely sure) that the first lot to be built - the one starting in March-April - is actually lot 3 "Variante di Baranzate". It should consist in 2.3 km of NEW road (not enlargement of current one), from A8 to Novate Milanese:
http://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=15/45.5295/9.1155

Basically in the map it should end near "Deposito Ferroviario TRENORD", where SP46 becomes green. Here's a blueprint:
http://www.comune.milano.it/dseserve...9?opendocument

Not entirely sure about the other two lots. I'm digging in the net and get back to you.

What about A14 widening? I drove on it between Civitanova Marche and Grottammare. The third lane reached Porto Sant'Elpidio.

Where did it start? Ancona sud? Do they plan to extend it more to the south?

And how are the works going between ancona nord and ancona sud?

No plans to extend south. There were in the beginning (until Pedaso if I remember correctly) but were scrapped.

They're going well there, recently they completed the excavation of Sappanico tunnel on a new alignment.
Ancona Nord-Senigallia works, despite official news, are still on hold.

Times are long, but the tender has been awarded last December. Last news was: start of works in 2015, end in 2020.
