A14 has been closed yesterday due to a failed assault to an armored truck between Mosciano and Giulianova. The thieves disrupted traffic in both directions by laying spiked chains on the ground, forcing the truck to stop. Dozens of live ammo have been fired. The thieves fled the scene when their sawing machine broke down.

Finely a nice picture of an Italian road... this thread is to much focalized in polemic or news that we don't really care.

You're right, what a shame...

Damned Government, at the end of the video there are all informations about the stretch Cosenza-Altilia. I wrote in Italian, but you understand the same?

Well it's not a photo thread, so news are welcome here. But I agree there is sometimes too much negativity and defeatism, and many of the updates are of little importance (and show ugly roads)

Third lane on A14 between Ancona nord and Ancona sud is going to open next July. The whole enlargement project between Rimini and Porto Sant'Elpidio is finally coming to an end.
Next enlargement works on A14 are going to be 4th lane between Bologna and the spur to Ravenna, and the whole lot of works around Bologna (tangenziale + autostrada enlargement) works should start in 2017 with a due date of 2021.

They watered down the project around Bologna, from the more interesting full-fledged "northern bypass", leaving the existing highway for more local-ish traffic (same thing they did around Mestre).

That project was insane. More than 40 km of motorway instead of current 20 something. Nobody would have taken it.

i remember travelling there in 2010 (or was it 2011), the works were going on and finishing it seemed to be so far... and finally it is here now!

what is the situation at Bologna eastern bypass? is it bottleneck as Mestre bypass used to be, ot the traffic is fluent there? are there problems with SOS lane missing? i also remember some ancient times when the motorway was 2+2 with SOS lanes (+ parallel tangenziale, of course), when was it changed to 3+3 allingment?

I think the tangenziale restyling with dynamic third lane was completed around 2007. All the times I passed there, though, even under heavy traffic, I found the third lane closed. Some speculate that Autostrade Per l'Italia wanted to prove the dynamic lane ineffective, so that its contract is renewed with the new proper enlargement works.

Dynamic lane is also dangerous, because if an accident happens (that is more likely when traffic is high, thus the dynamic lane active), there is no room for emergency vehicles to run.

Does anyone know, if there are any plans (at least long-term) to better connect the RA14 motorway with the Slovenian A3? It's not a big deal, but it would be good to eliminate that 300° turn in direction SLO -> I. It's been the same since 1997.

No, unfortunately.
It's complicated because there's also the access to the truck park.
I also feel that in many places in Europe they are reluctant to demolish completely former border control facilities, due to the uncertainty of the survival of Schengen, and the possibility of temporay suspensions of it.

One of the most important urban road projects in Italy, the "Spina Centrale" project in Turin, reaches a milestone today.

The terminal stretch of Turin-Milan railway, which used to run at ground level, basically split in half the city, so between 1987 and 2009 it was put underground and now it is known as "Passante ferroviario", a system of 13 km of rail tunnels connecting the Turin-Milan, Turin-Susa-Frejus and Turin-Genoa railroads.

The ground formerly occupied by rails was left unused, so it was converted into roads. It was divided into 4 different stretches.

- Spina 1, between Largo Orbassano and Corso Vittorio Emanuele, was converted 10 years ago into an elegant boulevard with 3/2 lanes per direction and lots of statues and fountains:



Spina 2 and Spina 3 are today opening for traffic: that includes a 2.6 km straight boulevard with the important 220 m underpass of Piazza Statuto, one of the most trafficked in the city:
