Yes. Not only traffic is heavy, but they expanded the original 2-lane highway to a cramped 3-lane without shoulder carriageway. It is not possible to further widen the existing highway.

As a result, even when traffic is not that high, a breakdown can wreck havoc on automobility in that axis. There are no alternative highways either.

The appeal against the tender awarded for the construction of motorway Rome-Latina has been dismissed by the TAR court of Latium, so construction can finally begin.

They say that it will be 3+3 between Rome and Aprilia and 2+2 plus local express lanes between Aprilia and Latina.

According to Diego Peli, council member of Province Brescia, next week ANAS and Salini consortium will sign the contract for building the Valtrompia motorway, north of Brescia. Construction is expected to begin next June.

It is the first lot, 6 km between the towns of Concesio and Sarezzo, which are part of a very populated industrial zone at the bottom of the narrow Valle Trompia.
No detailed plans are on the internet, only a very old project by Tecnis SpA which is not part of the project now.

Aprilia to Latina mostly has frontage roads already, though sometimes they disappear, and at other times they are grade separated themselves (like this) making them closer to true C/D lanes.

The improvement could be anything from simply making the frontage roads on this section continuous, to converting them to a fully grade separated C/D arrangement. The latter may, however, be tricky given the regular property frontages.

10 km of A3 Salerno-Reggio Calabria, between Rosarno and Mileto, have been sequestered by the judge because, during reconstruction, a whole lot of hydro-geological issues have been neglected: the stretch is still open for traffic, though.
9 people involved have been arrested, too.

I don't want to upgrade my avatar, I'm faithful to A3, for me it will be always A3, not A2

Planned extension of A12 between Tarquinia and Grosseto has been cancelled. Instead, existing SS1 will be upgraded to expressway standards (that implies duplication of 2-laned sections and removal of all at-grade junctions and U-turns).

Works for 3rd lane on A4 Alvisopoli - Gonars (basically section between A28 and a23) are proceeding regularly. That 26-km section should be completed by 2020.
It will include a brand-new 1.5 km bridge over Tagliamento river; the current one will be demolished.

http://messaggeroveneto.gelocal.it/u...nto-1.15180503

Preliminary works for the new Tagliamento bridge

















Works for this bridge will be extremely impressive: a new 'temporary factory' (150 meters long, 20 wide, and 13 tall) is planned to be built in situ. Inside it, concrete pillars weighting 90 tons each will be constructed.

Bad news: section Latisana - San Giorgio di Nogaro (15 km) will be limited to 80 kph for 2-3 years.

Can't they widen it from Venice to Villesse at once instead of annoying drivers for a decade?

Widening almost 100 km of motorway at once is logistically and financially usually impossible, often also not necessary from capacity point of view. Europe is not China where they often close whole motorway for a time and build new wider motorway on the same place.

Closing A4 (even half profile) would be unfeasible for obvious reasons (save for brief night closures to collocate overpasses). During widening, it will probably remain open with 4 narrow lanes and no hard shoulders, like they did on the Quarto d'Altino - San Donà di Piave section.
In Italy now motorway constructions and widenings, for financial and legislative reasons, are usually split in smaller lots, that increases a lot construction times. It hasn't always been the case, for example around 300 km of A14 opened to traffic at once in the early 1970s.

A bridge of the tangenziale of Fossano, northwest Italy near Turin, just collapsed for unkown causes. A car driven by two Carabinieri has been crushed, but the troopers are unharmed.

Enough. A review of all Italian bridges is overdue
