Speaking of Olbia, I was zooming in on that in Google Earth, it turns out to have new imagery from 11 March 2017. It's the first good quality 2017 imagery I've seen in Europe this year.

Fortunately, ANAS has recently started 'extraordinary renovation' works.

A4 between Latisana and San Giorgio di Nogaro is now open with a narrow-lanes configuration and will remain so until around 2020. Speed is limited to 80 (70 for trucks) and it's enforced electronically.
Be prepared to hell

A trucker did reverse driving on RA13 motorway near Trieste, after he realized he took the wrong exit. He hit two cars injuring 5 people and ran away.

Traffic signalization on Ra13 is very bad. From Monfalcone to Trieste a small font, various colors (green, blue, white).
We from Istra and Fiume, from birth we are traveling Trieste and its surroundings, we know the roads well, even with eyes closed :-)
But every time when I drive trough RA13, I say RESPECT for every tourist who is driving on A4/RA13 and successfully find the road to Fiume/Rijeka.
At the exit of RA13 for Fiume, on the road sign there is only Basovizza-Padricciano and only if you accidentally notice behind the bush the inscription Fiume you know that it is the direction leading towards Fiume-Quarnero/Carnaro and further towards Dalmatia.
Road signs on this highway have to be changed.
On the RA13 should be placed normal highway signposts that will clearly highlight the directions for Fiume (HR), Pula (HR), Capodistria (SLO).

Last year I drove through Milano on A4. On a Friday early afternoon and Monday early morning (before 7 a.m.). Both times were we caught in a big kerfuffle to get through there.

Entering Milano from the east, there is a toll station where 17 lanes have to merge into 3 lanes in only 150 meters. We were stuck in a V-shaped traffic jam for 15 minutes at that location, plus congestion on A4 itself.

When traveling east from A8, you've got 5 lanes merging into 3. We were also stuck there, between a very large volume of trucks.

I don't see how A4 could effectively be expanded. It would require significant demolition of buildings alongside the motorway. A big bypass like A52 and Pedemontana is useful for regional traffic, but most traffic tends to stick to the shortest route as bypasses are too far out of the way or only viable for certain tangential trips. I've also haven't read much about any project to improve A4, there used to be plans for shoulder lanes.

What about removing the exits on A4 and making it accessible to through traffic only? Thereby removing the toll stations on both sides of Milano.

This would reduce Milano-bound traffic on A4 (which could be diverted to A52) and also reduce congestion at the toll plazas.

With local upgrades, A52 could be come the entrance to Milano. For example, the Sesto San Giovanni exit could be closed and traffic moved to A52 and SS36.



Similarly, the access to and from A4 at the SP35 interchange could be removed, by connecting it to A52 and further upgrading A52.

Another option is to keep this interchange and build a toll station on it. There is some space and Italians are inventive to build interchanges in tight places. But it would keep more Milano traffic on A4.



On the west side of Milano, the problem is to install sufficient capacity toll plazas at exits to keep through traffic in a closed toll system. This is difficult to overcome with classic tolling with large toll plazas, but these problems would be solved with all-electronic tolling. Though technically feasible since the 1990s, there has been only haphazard implementation on European toll roads.

AET is currently mostly used in the periphery of Europe or on toll roads with almost exclusively domestic traffic. However there is some increasing usage on major routes, for example the Dartford Crossing in London and (almost) all motorways in Norway, Belarus and Portugal. The e-vignette is also enforced by ANPR in Hungary and Slovakia. Some low emission zones are also enforced similarly. So we're not entirely in the dark ages anymore when it comes to electronic tolling, but it has yet to break through to the mainstream in Italy, France, Spain, Croatia, Austria, etc.

Milan section of A4 is likely the most, traffic-wise, problematic, stretch of motorway in Italy, after bottlenecks such Mestre bypass, A1 Bologna-Florence, and A3 have been solved in the past decade. Hopefully things will improve when A36 Pedemontana Lombarda will be completed (not earlier than 2022). Traffic between Venice and Switzerland won't go via Milan anymore, but Venice - Turin traffic will continue doing so (unless they go via A21, that is 30 km longer but faster during rush hour).

As for e-tolling, A36, A59 and A60 in Italy are already using it since 2015.

Since you mentioned Dartford Crossing in London: I sometimes read discussions in an Italian RV forum (I'm not a RV user, but I occasionally read it because they discuss about roads). Of course, when it comes to UK, the first concern is driving on the wrong side of the road. The second concern (according to the number of topics about the question) is probably 'how to pay for Dartford crossing'.

It is not feasible to make A4 a through-route through Milano. They could have proposed that if they had built A52 as a full-fledged highway with 4 lanes per direction all the way between the fairgrounds and Sesto San Giovani. Since they've not done that, A4 is needed for intra-city traffic, especially to distribute truck traffic.

In any case, removal of intermediate exits would instantly make the small municipalities on the northern side of A4 request that A4 is tunneled or covered.

Hello guys, in July I will make a holiday in Italy in Grado. Although there is comfortable motorway from my home practically to the resort, in Italy it is A23 from AT border down to the coast, I plan to drive some scenic roads in Alps. The additional time I want to spend on this detour drive is from two to five hours approximately. I am thinking of taking SS 54 and SP 76, but it is not a condition.

I mean for sure I can take some information from Internet, however, road and motorway geeks here seems here to give good information. Thanks.

The SS13 is a beautiful road following the A23. From Gemona to Tarvisio are almost no villages you have to cross and only little traffic. Also it is free of toll.

The route through Slovenia (Bovec etc.) is also nice

Yeah, right, but I have been driving A23 several times, it´s northern part scenery is nice, if I would drive SS13, the scenery would be nice as well, but the same.
SP76 seems to be narrow and curvy, combined option Italy - Slovenia seems to be good choice, SS54 in Italy, then Slovenian roads 203 and 102 and then again to Italian SS54 up to Udine.

This article says that both lots of SS96 Barese should open by beginning of June.

About A18, I read there are problems in funding, so no clear date is given.

Works for the second tube of Tenda/Tende tunnel, between Italy and France, have been stopped by Italian judges for at least 5 months. Wiretapping revealed workers talking about poles being secured to the ground "by spit and flour", works done "scrappily" (but the Italian expression is much stronger), "water spilling out everywhere, an incredibly messy thing".
17 people are under inquiry, including the director and the site manager.

I had the privilege of visiting your great nation earlier this year visiting the wonderful cities of Rome, Florence, and Venice.

My cousin lived about 30 minutes north of Rome and we took the freeway that goes between Rome & Florencce. The road was good and well used but considering how it went by Rome I was surprised how light the traffic was. Even the Roman freeways themselves weren't that busy considering the size of Rome. Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver would kill to have such light traffic and free flowing freeways thru their cities. The traffic on Canadian cities near our big cities can be horrific and I was pleasantly surprised how well things moved and how light the traffic was.
