I think that Italy opened the biggest number of motorways from 1967 to 1975.

I decided to start a long-term project to introduce in the Italian Wikipedia the lists of all provincial roads (SP) in Italy. About a year ago I created the lists for the provinces of Udine, Pordenone and Gorizia (other lists you can see have been created by other users). The problem is that many Italian provinces don't publish the list of their provincial roads, so many of these wikilinks will stay red (i.e. empty) for a while.

A4 - Variante di Bernate Ticino

The "variante di Bernate Ticino" (new alignment of A4 with a new bridge over Ticino river) is complete and open in both directions, in a 2x3 + emergency lanes configuration. I didn't find news online but I drove there yesterday, and the configuration seems definitive (white lines).

Also the speed limit is 130km/h which shall confirm that the alignment is definitive.

A neat corporate video of the Val di Sambro tunnel (A1 - Variante di Valico), with some neat aerials and close-up views of tunnel excavation works (+ "how good it is to work for us" shots).

You can find the maps of the network during the years here

Example:

- green: motorways built before 1970
- red: motorways built between 1970 and 1975

Today the last stretch of VI 'Macrolotto' of A3 Salerno-Reggio Calabria, in province of Reggio Calabria, opened to traffic (almost 4 km).

Here's the video:

It seems that 95 kilometers of new motorway opened to traffic in Italy in 2014.

This would make 2014 the best year for new autostrade since 1978.

Yes, A35 alone was 63 km. It's a record quite difficult to beat: next year Variante di Valico is due, some 50 km or so.

In addition, 22km of expressway(-like) roads opened in 2014.

What's about opening of 8km SS106 expressway? Any updated estimated opening date?

I cannot find any news, certainly it's still to be opened. One possibility is that they will open the entire section in mid-2015, even if part of it is already completed.
On Openstreetmaps, also SS106 Locri - Ardore Marina is marked as U/C.

Thanks. The latter is not mentioned on the project page, isn't it? But the map shows it completed (green, 16.9km)!? Completed but not in service?

This map is inaccurate. If only 1km is open, it shows the entire lot open.
