Curently it's going to be very hard to upgrade A10 because it's hilly terain and there is a big number of tunnels which are long and i think that upgrading would cost much money.Also A10 is 2x3 lanes between Genova and Savona.

Currently? The mountains are mountains and will probably stay there.

Are there any plans at all?

No, there are no official plans. It would be an insane job to do, due the terrain (but after the recostruction of A3 nothing is impossible, except financially).
There is an old plan to build an outer bypass of Genoa (Gronda di Genova), but it encounters a lot of environmental opposition and it will be extremely expensive.

(in red the planned motorway)
Cost estimate in 2006 was 3 billion euros for only 18km of highway!

And it's not so far from that.

It's heavily underused.

Just for the information. What is the maximum allowed speed at Autostrada Pontebbana, from Tarvisio to Udine, tunnels included? I was driving there yesterday, and it seems that in the tunnels one may drive up to 130 kmh? Because before the entrance to the most tunnels there are only signs for supposed speed of 100 kmh (green rectangle with white number, something like German sign for supposed speed of 130 kmh on the Autobahns: blue rectangle with white number).
Thanks.

If not otherwise signaled, 130 is the maximum allowed speed.

In many tunnels on A24 for example speed limit is 110 just for the last 100 meters of the tunnel, but 130 for the rest.

Green rectangle with white number is just the advised speed, it's not a limit.

My compliments go to the concessioner of A23 (Autostrada Pontebbana): the tunnels are wide and clean. At the most of the carriageway in Udine direction there is Asfalto Drenante. How contrary for example to Croatia, where at the Dalmatina Motorway (A1) there is speed limit of only 80 kms in all tunnels! Go Italy!
