Beware you guys, the section of A4 with roadworks is scattered with speed traps, so it's better to obey the speed limit even if it's unreasonably low (with low traffic, even with narrow lanes, driving 100-110 could be safe but they put 80).

Not so enormous as it could have been expected, I'd say.

A little O/T: when are they going to put draining asphalt on slovenian motorways? I drove Verona-Ljubljana during intense rain and the slovenian part was quite scary, especially in the downhill stretches.

they are easily spotted. and I wonder if they are active? majority of the traffic flows at 90-100kmh there.

never it's because of the warm climate Italy can do that. Slovenia could eventually put the draining asphalt on H4, but low traffic and smaller speeds don't make this a needed task.

Viaduct "Petrulla" on SS 626 dir near Licata, Sicily is closed due to a structural failure in one of its piers:


pic from online.stradeeautostrade.it

The viaduct was built in late 70s and it gave no indication of imminent structural failure: it was open when it collapsed (two cars involved, few people lightly injured).

News on A52 completion. The project risks severe delays, or even cancellation, because workers found remains of a Roman settlement right where the road would pass. Further investigations are ongoing.

Nevertheless, works are proceeding at high rate. Since last week, as this news appeared, progress is impressive (batch no.3).
We will see if the news is reliable (I don't trust too much on local papers, mainly made by free-lance or volunteer reporters).

Contract was finally signed for the construction of lots 6,7 and 8 of A18 in Sicily. Lot 8 deadline is on 2017, but lots 6 and 7 are due to be completed at the unrealistic deadline of 31st December 2015. So unrealistic that the concessionaire estimates 24 months of work of a viaduct and 35 for the other one...

Lot 8 deadline is 31st Dec 2017. I guess it's another way to say "2018".

Yes, the whole A35 (Melzo-Brescia, 62km) and part of the A58 (Pozzuolo Martesana-Comazzo, 7km) will open tomorrow. I think it's the longest motorway opening in Italy since 1980.

They opened today at 3 p.m.
The toll for the entire stretch is 10,50€, around twice the amount for an average Italian motorway of that lenght. Currently there are not gas station or rest areas along that route, but they're planned.
