Probably, I don't know, but it's not even remotely so crowded that it requires a dedicated motorway.

Are you considering both, passenger and freight traffic?

Long-distance ferries to mainland Italy likely dock at Napoli anyway. Once a truck is in a ferry, it makes more financial sense to carry such truck all the way to Napoli or maybe Civitavecchia or Genova.

According with my memory, there were a ferry from Palermo in the past.

Sure there is a flight connection from Palermo.

To my knowledge, there has never been much interaction between Italy and Tunisia.

Aparently, Tunis has ferry connections with Palermo, Genoa, Civitavecchia and Salerno.

I know Tunisia isn't that large, but there are Algeria and Libya behind it (and theoretically all Africa), so I thought there could be some more traffic.

We had very important economic ties with Libya, but I thought there would be a direct connection with Tripoli. I'm not sure about that.

You're right, that's more likely. Same with Algeria probably, so Trapani-Tunis would be mostly just traffic for Tunisia itself.

I don't think we ever had a ferry link to Libya, but it was possible to reach it overland from Tunisia. Algeria can be reached by ferry from Marseille and by road from Tunis (accessible by ferry from Italy).
Keep in mind that even before the civil war independent travel in Libya was stricly controlled. Foreign tourists had to be escorted by a government-approved escort for the entire duration of the trip. Vehicles had to be temporarily re-registered with Libyan plates.
Moreover, Libya is the only Arab country with no Latin-alphabet names beside Arabic ones on signage.

Btw, once I saw a car from Tunisia on the A9 at the Swiss border. I've also seen a bus from Algeria in France, two or three cars from Morocco in Switzerland, and a truck from Malta on the Ljubljana ringroad, but never from Libya.

And who's gonna whatching it? Such long videos need to be at least 10x time-lapsed. That user uploaded many 5h+ road videos.

Tomorrow a 9-km section of SS77 expressway between Colfiorito (Umbria) and Serravalle di Chienti (Marche) will open to traffic.
Here a video from last October:



The entire SS77 Fologno - Civitanova Marche will be completed later this year.

@Brick84
A29 from Palermo city to its airport has street lighting all the way (not only at junctions). This is very unusual for an Italian motorway. Are they switched on at night or they aren't used anymore to save energy?

A 9-km stretch of SS 77 expressway was inaugurated today at 10:30 between Bavareto di Serravalle and Colfiorito, in Central Italy.

To be honest, i don't know.

I guess it's probably for high population density and traffic in this stretch and this part of A29 in considered as well as a 'city road' in that point; or for a lot junctions..
