Excuse me, A24 is? A few years ago I was driving at the Autostrada di Brennero, and there is 110 limit, tunnels included, but it seems that the Autostrada di Brennero is a bit narrower than the Autostrada Pontebbana?

EDIT: Next compliments go to the Polizia Stradale. In Italy, all the way from Tarvisio to Trieste, no truck, was it Romanian or German, tried to overtake another truck or trailer. How contrary from Slovenia, where from Sežana to Ljubljana there is Texas. In Slovenia truck drivers do what they want to do (sorry Verso, but this is the hard truth!).

A24 is Roma - L'Aquila = Teramo (near A14), via the Gran Sasso tunnels.

yeah this is for sure country related trucks don't undertake trucks on A23 because there is not a lot of them. try driving A4, A13...

about speed limit in tunnels on A23: I actually think there should be a speed limit of 100 or 110 (except in the first two tunnels who have a shoulder lane). 130 in curvy tunnels can be dangerous if a vehicle breaks down in the middle...

Polizia has nothing to do with that. Truck overtake ban is not enforced at all in Italy: you basically can do whatever you want.

And 100 can't be dangerous?

well it is less dangerous, because the stopping distance is smaller.

He's a Croat, a bit allergic to Slovenia, and he mentions me in half of his posts as if I were an ultranationalist or something.

I think that on some parts of A1 between Bologna and Firenze speed limit is 90km/h.

From Sasso Marconi to La Quercia the existing motorway was widened to 3x2 (with a little realignment) in 2006.
From La Quercia to Aglio there will be a completely new motorway (3x2) parallel to the old one (2x2), that will remain open to local traffic (Rioveggio, Pian del Voglio, Roncobilaccio).
From Aglio to Barberino the old motorway will be used only in northbound direction (with the median removed, it will be 4 lanes, so an extra lane to climb uphill) and a new 3-lanes carriaggeway will be built next to it for southbound traffic.
Everything will (hopefully) be completed within 2015.

The section Bologna - Sasso Marconi was already widened to 3x2 long ago. The section Barberino - Incisa is planned to be upgraded to 3x2 too.
