Actually it make sense: when a national road is diverted from its old route, this one needs a new temporary classification, until it passes from ANAS to the province.

There are better solutions:

1) define the owner of the road before it opens

2) design a coherent numbering system not based on the owner, as drivers do not care who maintain the road, things like "SP ex SS 123", "SP BS 123", "NSA" should not exist. There should be A for motorways/autostrade, maybe B or S for superstrade, SS for main roads (also those owned by regions or provinces), and SR/SP/SC for minor ones - or something similar

Sacyr is awarded the construction and concession of the Rome – Latina freeway (Italy) with an income portfolio of 12,250 million euros

Autostrade del Lazio has awarded the construction and concession of the Rome - Latina freeway in Italy, 186 kilometers long, to Sacyr's Italian subsidiary, SIS, with envisaged investment of 2,800 million euros and a concession period of 43 years.

The Rome-Latina freeway is the final part of Lazio Major Bypass, which comprises the Sole, Cisterna-Valmontone, Rome-Latina and Orte-Civitavecchia freeways, bringing its infrastructure in line with European standards.

The project requires the construction of 78 viaducts and overpasses with a total length of 23,700 meters, 2 tunnels with a total length of 2,350 meters, 5 cut-and-fill tunnels with a total length of 1,425 meters, 17 link roads and three central toll barriers, among other infrastructure.

The average daily intensity (ADI) once operating is envisaged at 32,000 vehicles, whilst the income portfolio throughout the lifetime of the concession will reach 12,250 million euros. Revenue from the freeway will be via direct toll, with a mechanism for restoring financial equilibrium for the franchisee through tariff reviews.

The contract includes the construction of a system of freeways running for a length of 186 km (100 km of freeway and 86 km of secondary roads) made up of two sections:

* Stage 1:Rome-Latina section 68.3 km long, subdivided into: A12 Rome – Tor de’Cenci link road, and Rome “Tor de’ Cenci – Latina “Borgo Piave” section..
* Stage 2: Cisterna – Valmontone connecting section, 31.5 km long

Tommorow I'll travel to Sicily over A1 and A3. Last time I went there was 7 years ago but it was not on weekend. I will start early in the morning and I'm aware of various autostrada improvements over past years. What can I expect on July Saturdays?

Not autostrada-related but does anyone know what the story here is? The road across the middle seems to be a modern super two type road with GSJs that has been built and then partly abandoned, if you follow it from one end to the other

There are some extra traffic but the worse is last weekend of July and August. The ferry might have a line as well but congestion in the island itself is not that bad except on the second half of August

It seems that a bridge collapsed.

The rest of the road is open, but it's in poor condition without road markings at all.

Yes, no problem, you can register late.
Or even not register at all, and pay only if you get some notification at home, that probably isn't going to happen as you live outside Italy.

Oh and I forgot to say you can buy ferry tickets online.

That way you avoid the ticket queue and go to the embarkation line straight away

According to OSM, the section has a length of about 7km and does not end at an interchange: http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=37...43718;0;239634.

About 4km near Cannemaschi i/c seem to be in service: http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=37...;423145;158175. Does anyone know when the section was opened?

How long is the remaining section u/c b/n Cannemaschi and Caltanissetta (21km?) and what's the estimated completion date?

In total, 11km are to be widened. The remaining ~8km section is mentioned in the news article but I'm not sure what it means:

Quote:
Proseguono al contempo le lavorazioni sul resto del cantiere. [...] L’apertura al traffico è prevista, con successivi stralci, a partire dalla fine del 2016 e nel corso del prossimo anno.

Google translated:
Continue while the work on the rest of the yard. [...] The opening to traffic is expected, with the following excerpts, from the end of 2016 and in the course of next year.
To be opened for traffic in late 2016 or 2017?

Is the widening of the western section completed and dedicated/signed A52 now? Or any updated estimated completion date?

Maybe it wasn't updated correctly on OSM.
I think that 5 km are those which weren't 4-lane yet, over a 7-km total stretch.

According to wikipedia that section was opened 16th April 2012, all the way from Vecchia Dama.

It should be ~27 km and the due date is December 2016.

27km? That means, the section which has recently been opened ends at SS626?

It will be opened piece by piece, in different stages between end-2016 and whole 2017.
