not it is about to wait to see how it will be functional in reality when the first crowds appear (i guess they intend to use the system of redirecting certain parts of traffic to old, or to new route, depending of traffic volulmes, right?)

Thanks for the compliments, in fact in my region there is no one else who makes videos of my gender.

However for SS87 I could not tell you anything because I live in the province of Naples and I was never interested in the roads of the province of Benevento.

I only know that they are working very hard on this road and with a quick glance at the site ANAS.it (manager of the road) I saw these works:

From km 78.573 to km 105.850
SS.87 - WORKS OF MAINTENANCE FOR STRENGTHENING AND STRUCTURAL RESTORATION OF WORKS OF ART MORE STRONGLY DETERIORATED SHOWN INSIDE THE PROJECT WITH CONSTRUCTION JOINT ON DECKS.

From km 81.500 to km 81.500
S.S. 87 AT KM 81 + 500RNLAVORI OF MAINTENANCE PE CROSSING THE RECONSTRUCTION OF A CONCRETE. STRONGLY deteriorated PRESENTING THROUGH INJURY OF SIGNIFICANT ENTITY

From km 102.720 to km 102.720
S.S. AT 87 KM 102 + 720RNLAVORI OF MAINTENANCE FOR STRENGTHENING AND STRUCTURAL RESTORATION OF VIADUCT `` WITHOUT NAME`` STRONGLY DETERIORATED

Expected upcoming expressway openings

SS534: Spezzano Albanese-Terme – Sibari Marina 14km (November 2013 to 24th December 2015) [2nd c/w] – projectmap

The workers have been on strike since 18th December complaining of non-payment of monthly salaries for October and November

I couldn't find any info about the progress of the works but it seems not to be opened on schedule. Maybe 2016...


SS199: west of Olbia-South (SS131DCN) – Olbia-Airport 2.5km (June 2012 to December 2015) – projectmap

I couldn't find any updated info. Still expected to be opened... next week?


SS640: Agrigento – Canicatti 8km (March 2009 to 2015) – projectmap
SS640: Cannemaschi – Caltanissetta (A19) 34km (April 2012 to July 2016) – projectmap

The Agrigento section should be this one. I think the Racalmut section has also a length of 2km.
Source: http://mobilita.org/2015/04/29/agrig...caltanissetta/

I'm not sure about the dates, maybe I'll dig a little into the Italian thread.
Could you dig into the Italian thread? Which sections are in service et cetera...


The following new expressway sections are expected to open in early 2016 (it's possible that it's already out-dated ):

SS318: Valfabbrica – Pianello 8.5km (2009 to January 2016) – projectmap
SS597: Codrongianos (SS131) – Ploaghe 2.4km (September 2013 to January 2016) – projectmap
SP1 BT: Andria-North-East – Trani-North (SS16bis) 7.5km (January 2014 to January 2016) – ? – map
Pedemontana Veneta: Thiene (A31) – Breganze 5.7km (November 2011 to Early 2016) – projectmap
SS96 Barese: north of Altamura – Mellitto 10km (December 2013 to March 2016) – ? – map
SS597: Monti/Telti – Enas 7.2km (December 2013 to March 2016) – projectmap

The only ones I know out-of-the-box, that is, without having to search, are SS318 (April 2016), and Pedemontana Veneta which will not open in 2016.

I read recently that SS640 is having legal troubles, I don't know more.
I promise that I will put more attention to the projects next year

What about some stretches of the Quadrilatero? I read that the Umbrian part of SS76 should open soon!

I was referring to SS87NC south of the Asse Meriano all the way to Miano, which I think is entirely within Napoli province

Are you sure? Delayed again? That's what you've reported in September 2015:

I'm talking about the Pianello - Valfabbrica - Casacastalda stretch.

About SPV, I have recently read they hope to open this year only a short stretch near Bassano. I'll dig more, but there aren't many info available on this road

The section where the SS 87 "Sannitica" takes on the name of SS87NC (in province of Naples) is not managed by ANAS but from the "Metropolitan City of Naples" (which does not perform a good road maintenance like ANAS), I might look on their website some information.

For a good video you need good weather and somebody who's actually willing to take the extra steps necessary to get a good quality video, such as eliminating reflection, a clean windshield, not filming into the sun and have good lighting conditions (which is difficult this time of the year). I'm sure someone like Astey Highways will make a good video at one point.
In fact, yes... I plan to catch the new A1var next spring in both directions (probably end of march-april), in order to have better lighting conditions (I'm sure what you understand what I'm talking about :-) ). And maybe, the lasts works will be finished.

Filming southbound this time of the year is the worst. Due to long shadows you can only do it around midday, but then you're driving full into the sun. An alternative is filming in cloudy conditions, but videos like that are often less colorful.

Generally speaking, filming northbound in sunny conditions always gives the best lighting and coloring.

Interested to see how that will work out indeed. The pictures of the grand opening that I saw as well as post #8702 above included pictures of the signage at the junction between old and new as you drive Southbound. That was static signage, with just dynamic arrows above each lane to indicate lane closures (and thus a potential closure of either option). But of course those pictures did not reveal whether there was any dynamic signage placed beforehand.

Anyway, the old route is signposted as A1 Firenze / Rioveggio. The new route is signposted as A1 variante / E35 / Firenze / Badia. The old route leaves as a left exit. I wonder whether the combination of these (staying left and following A1) isn't going to lead to a lot of people considering the old road as the default position, whereas in reality I believe that the new road should be the default position thanks to its much better alignment.

I am now actually thinking if I have ever seen dynamic direction signs in Italy at all...

At least I'm not assuming any big green signs on which the content can be changed. But the A1 is of course full of overhead DRIPs that give travel times. If there was a DRIP placed just before the junction between old and variante and that DRIP says that the variante is five minutes quicker, motorists would be much more likely to follow normal green signs that say 'variante' than without such a DRIP.

By the way, the motorways in Napoli used to have dynamic signs a long, long time ago. See http://cdn.freeforumzone.leonardo.it...x?idd=10123737. But I do not recall any dynamic green signs that are current.

they will definitely use existing panels to indicate optimal route. they are not placed along A1, but all over the italian motorway network, and they don't indicate only travelling times, but also other information like closed exits, works etc.

When I was traveling along A21 and A1, on my way from Turin to Bologna on December 23rd (the day Variante opened and long queues formed) I found many dynamic panel suggesting alternative routes for vehicles heading south (A15/A12/A11)

Don't know for sure, but there should be some of those on the way from Bologna to Firenze and from FI to BO.
