Contract for this section is already signed, but it's not clear when works will start. However I was talking about new motorways, this one will be an expressway.

The upgraded parts of the Ionica are strada extraurbana principale, thus signed with a blue chopstick sign. Will do as motorway to me, also considering that most modern superstrade are being built at higher standards than many a motorway of old.

In any event, the realisation of pending big high quality dual carriageway projects (Ionica, Quadrilatero, E78) excites me more than a few kilometers of A-road somewhere in the North. So thanks for the update.

Probably it will be a new motorway between Tarquinia and Grosseto and between San Pietro in Palazzi (current end od A12 south of Rosignano) and Grosseto they will upgrade SS1. Toll will be either free-flow or open system (a toll booth with fixed rate every few dozens of kilometer).

SS106 Jonica

http://www.stradeanas.it/index.php?/...arg/106_ionica

Until some months ago ANAS webside showed a long-term plan to build a 2x2 expressway all the way from Taranto to Reggio Calabria.
Then, the section Sibari - Crotone appeared cancelled (it says only renovation of the existing 1+1 road).
With the last update (February 2016), also the Crotone - Reggio Calabria stretch was cancelled, except the Palizzi bypass, that is already U/C.
Beside this short section, only the Roseto - Sibari lot will be built (contract signed months ago but works not started yet).
However, a 2x2 connection between Taranto and Reggio Calabria will be possible via SS106, SS534 and A3.

According to Autostrade del Lazio SpA, a company created to build and manage the future motorway Rome-Latina, the construction tender was awarded to the italo-spanish company SIS, winning over Salini-Impregilo.

Next free number, not counting dismissed A2 and A17, would be A37...

Bad news for A3

We have very bad news for A3.

ANAS has downgraded its plans for the modernization works of the remaining 58km still not under construction. Instead of re-alignment and widening as seen elsewhere, they will spend € 1,1 billion to "rebuilt-in-place" the infrastructure, without widening of viaducts and/or new tunnels.

Only a short 5-km single-carriageway will be built (with existing lanes becoming 4 northbound lanes).

The government doesn't have the € 3,9 billion it would need to completely rebuild the remaining 58km in a new alignment. € 7,2 billion have already been spent on reconstruction/widening/realignment of A3.

This means these sectors will not have wide shoulders, and likely will be stuck with a 90 km/h speed limit, and some short-ish acceleration lanes on exits.

Since they will spend more than one billion Euro on it, it is unlikely they will spend almost another 4 billion to rebuild as originally planned these sectors anytime within next 20 years.

This is the sweetened pill corporate video of ANAS about the cheap works they'll do


With this new solution, the final count of tunnels on A3 will be 194 (for 124,3km) and the count of bridges 479 (91,2km).

There are also 21km under construction right now, this will remain as planned/financed.

The sectors that will not be reconstructed were not the worst (like the final descent into Villa San Giovanni before the reconstruction, or the cramped and outright dangerous design around Salerno, but the one south of Cosenza is substandard in that the road has too many soft curves and tight tunnels. It was like the section west of Battipaglia before they fixed it in almost a decade ago.

There is a PDF with some slides on the new situation/project and/or a 6MB picture with a map for download

Government is giving Calabria the short hand; first they cancelled the Messina strait bridge, then they severely reduced the scope of SS-106 and now they cancel part of A3 reconstruction altogether, going for half-baked measures. I won't start a political rant on how this government is thinking low on infrastructure, coming up with big plans and then severely paring them down. There needs to be higher transportation infrastructure spending in Italy, with a "go for the best" approach. When they did that, Italy got brand new high-speed train lines, new full-standard autostrade and world-class port facilities, now it is all about half-measures and cheap projects (rail, road, maritime).

If the construction tender was awarded, I guess that construction works should begin "soon", shouldn't they? Maybe 2016?

I've never heard (or can't remember) about this motorway. Is it an upgrade of the existing SS148 or will the future "A37" have a different alignment?

I found a call for tenders from 2014(?) which also mentions a Cisterna – Valmontone connection. I guess it's one contract for construction of both new roads?

http://www.autostradedellazio.it/on-...ma-Latina.html

It's reported that the total length is 53.5km (OSM). There seems to be 4 lots or sections:
  • Tratta 1: Tor de’ Cenci - Castel Romano
  • Tratta 2: Castel Romano - Aprilia Nord
  • Tratta 3: Aprilia Nord - Bivio di Cisterna
  • Tratta 4: Bivio di Cisterna - Latina Nord

Tor de’ Cenci is close to A90. I guess the new road will begin at A90 exit 26? The future motorway will feature 2x3 lanes (width of 33.3m) up to Aprila North. The remaing sections will feature 2x2 lanes.

http://www.autostradedellazio.it/on-...almontone.html

The 2x2 motorway has a length of 34km (OSM). Where will it be connected to "A37", at Aprilia North interchange? Where will it be connected to A1, near an exisiting interchange or a new interchange?

Is there a map showing the entire future motorway network of the region?

SS199: west of Olbia-South (SS131DCN) – Olbia-Airport 2.5km (June 2012 to Early 2016) – projectmap
SS597: Codrongianos (SS131) – Ploaghe 2.4km (September 2013 to Early 2016) – projectmap

It's reported that a "limitation" because of the SS199 construction works (lot 9) will be extended till 30th May, source. I guess SS199 section will be opened in Mid 2016 (at the earliest).

If I'm right, the project page link has been changed and the new project page contains less information - no details at all .

I don't think so, I guess 2017 is a more probable date.

It will largely follow SS148 except for bypassing Pomezia and Aprilia.

Yes, the project contains both roads, the latter being a motorway connection to the A1.

Possibly, I'm not sure. The old project was connecting it directly to A12 at Ponte Galeria, but there were a lot of environmental oppositions about that, the area being a natural park of some sort.

It's small but - kind of - readable.
