Some impressive pictures of Forca Canapine tunnel, on SS 685, after the central Italy earthquake of some weeks ago. Nobody was hurt, fortunately.

All the works on A3 Salerno-Reggio Calabria has been completed today. And the highway has taken today a new name: "A2 - Autostrada del Mediterrano" (Mediterranean highway)

(A2 from Fisciano to Villa San Giovanni - A3 from Napoli to Fisciano)

A3 south of Fisciano will be resigned to A2 now?

Yes.

A2 number was previously (1962-1988) used for Rome-Naples motorway, later included in A1.

Unfortunately some stretches have not been upgraded, as they were cancelled from the plan by the government last year, so they will remain like they were built in the 1970s (narrow, curvy, no shoulders).

What a lame map:
  • the cartographic basis is several years old, how could ANAS not get an update map base?
  • the green highlight is something that resembles MS Paint, not a GIS-level professional job worth a 2nd year IS student
  • two sectors had works, which never started, just cancelled, so the highway is just the same 1970s expressway standard regarding width and cramped exits, just with newer cosmetic and safety features (total of almost 40km)

Section Fisciano (A30) - Salerno (A3) was numbered RA2 (raccordo autostradale 2) before being included on A2 today.

I know hope they put a toll concession there, operating with plate-number electronic tolling system (the % of foreign vehicles on the new road is rather low, especially beyond Salerno), and that they include modernization of the two 'non-modernized' sectors on the concession road exploitation plan.

Interesting move though. I'm thinking this may be the most high-profile single motorway renumbering in Europe in 30 years or more. Spain completely renumbered it system in 2003 and Greece renumbered some motorways in 2015. Other recent renumberings, such as the Czech Republic and Slovakia changed only the prefix and/or only the numbers of planned motorways.

Wow, I haven't noticed before, but that map is not just old but plain wrong
RA5 (motorway branch from A3 to Potenza) is missing, while SS106 Capo Spulco-Sibari is marked as dual-carriaggeway while it isn't.

To make the scheme even clearer, they could include A30 Caserta-Fisciano into A2.

I agree, I think they should renumber the entire A30 to A2, so there is a long north-south route with only two numbers (A1-A2) from Milano to Reggio Calabria. I guess renumbering the entire route to A1 would be a step too far.

An hypotetical A1 Milan - Reggio Calabria would probably be the longest motorway in Europe.

Yes, although the A-7/AP-7 corridor in Spain is longer.

The A3 will be exist from Naples to Salerno.

New A2 will be from Salerno to Reggio Calabria (RA4) plus half of RA2 from the connection with the A30.

Italian roads (blue) and motorways (green) managed by ANAS


Again, very high-tech graphic work.

A2 ends in Villa San Giovanni. Villa San Giovanni - Reggio Calabria is RA4.

SR352 Aquileia-Grado

The movable bridge connecting the causeway from Aquileia to the island of Grado (Friuli-Venezia Giulia), opened in 1936, is now damaged beyond repair.
It will be completely removed on January 19 2017 and the replacement bridge will be installed two months laters. Meanwhile, Grado, will be accessible only from Monfalcone.
