And in the same vacation I made a trip from Matera through Metaponte, Taranto and Brindisi to Lecce and Gallatina, to see the small family museum in Lecce and the beautiful frescos from 14th or 15th century in Gallatina. The quality of so-called "Blue Motorways" there is good, somewhere even very good (Brindisi-Lecce and the Tangenziale Ovest di Lecce). One can drive normal even in the heavy showers.

"Autostrada del Sole" is/was only the original A1, i.e. Milan - Rome or both the original A1 and A2 (current A1) Milan - Rome - Naples?

A1 Milan-Rome and A2 Rome-Naples were parts of the Autostrada del Sole. They were linked by the Rome ringroad. A direct link was opened in 1988.

Anyway...

A1 Milan-Naples, Italy: Autostrada del Sole, built 1956-1964
A6 Paris-Lyon + A7 Lyon-Marseille, France: Autoroute du Soleil, built 1960-1971
A2 Bucharest-Constanta, Romania: Autostrada Soarelui, built 1980s-2012
Chile Route 78 Santiago-Valparaiso, Chile: Autopista del Sol, built ?-?
Carretera Federal 95D Cuernavalca-Acapulco, Mexico: Autopista del Sol, built 1989-1993

Anyone left?
It's obvious that all other were inspired by the Italian one.

SPV is in the process of changing its management, so I guess there will be delays.

About SS96, I read March 2017 as deadline.

SP1 BT is missing some funding, so no due date.

SS729 changed the company working on it. No due date, but I drove on it in September and it seemed far from complete.

SS 640 is delayed for some weeks.

Welcome to Italy.

There are no more projects on the A3 (shortly to become A2). The last one was a tunnel near Cosenza and then the Prime Minister announced the road was 'finished' this month with a straight face.

At least 20% of the A3 in Calabria is still the same shite heap with no hard shoulders and crap bridges and tunnels that it always was. It should be a superstrada not a motorway after the motorway runs out somewhere north of Cosenza seeing as the government has no intention of upgrading the rest of it to Reggio any more.

About SPV, due to various messes with managements and fundind, the 2016 opening sections were delayed/postponed to early 2017, and early opening section delayed to mid-2017, the other, for the moment, continued to maintain the same date...

Works for the direct connection A4-A35 near Brescia started yesterday.
They consist in the construction a new carriageway on the current A35-rac. All tunnels, viaducts and underpasses were already built considering a possible future doubling, so they won't have to be demolished and rebuilt. They will also have to build a new toll barrier, and connection ramps. Cost is 50 M€.
