The bridge across Po di Levante (one of the branches of Po delta) on SS309 in Veneto has been closed to traffic few days ago because they detected serious structural problems.

Short report about the A4 from the A4xA23 inizio to Venezia direction.

1. View from San Giorgio di Nogaro exit overpass towards Trieste direction. As it seen in this photo, widening works are in process, a new overpass is being built, while the exisitng one will be demolished.


2. On the A4.


3. Near Latisana.


4. Construction of a completely new bridge for the A4 over river Tagliamento. IMO the most complicated part.


5. Already widened segment between S.Dona-Noventa exit and Mestre.


6. Interesting vertical column for the overhead sign.


7. That quantity of trucks though.

Today Photobucket removed all photos from non-paid accounts. A huge number of SSC photo posts are thus lost forever.

The all-free idea of internet is slowly, sadly, dying.

They could have introduced a fee for new Photobucket uploads, but not have made it retroactive. A such measure would destroy a huge number of websites and forums created throghout the years.
I wonder if other websites can sue Photobucket for the damages created.

Anyway, internet now is generally freer than ever. Remember 10-15 years ago, when you had to pay ridiculous prices for 56k connection (and tariffs were usually time-related, not flat). Not to mention costs of mobile internet access in WAP (text-based browser) era. Or when you had to pay hundreds of euros (or the equivalent in pre-euro currency), just to get a software for word-processing, spreadsheets or slide presentations, because no open-source options were available yet. Or the costs to download a music or background for your mobile.

Yes, as of this morning I am aware of that. If only they gave information at least a couple of days before their new policy, I would've uploaded them to a different site.

Now I don't know whether to re-upload these images or just wait for some time, since these changes at Photobucket are new, a lot of people have anger towards them, maybe they will change something back. They could've at least keep the existing images visible, which were uploaded before the new TOS.

A picture of one of the least documented construction sites in Italy, the A15 Parma-Trecasali. This was taken by drone last April and represents river Taro and Grugno lakes:



The trailer video of the reportage (wildly against the construction) can be seen here:

Was it really necessary to build the motorway across the lakes? Wouldn't be cheaper and eco-friendlier to just go around them?

I found an old, very ambitious but unrealistic, motorway project that will probably never be built.
It would be a 119 km long motorway between Predosa (A26) and Albenga (A10), across an extremely challenging mountanious territory. 77 of these 119 km would be tunnels, 23 viaducts and only 19 normal motorway. Estimated cost would be 6 billion euro.
First conceived in 1967, a more detailed plan of it was released in 2004.


(It's NW of Genoa, for those not familiar with Italian blank map.)

It seems that the construction of this work (Albenga-Carcare-Predosa) has been set aside, they've started
of the construction work for the GRONDA di PONENTE, a highway linking the A10, A26 and A7 in Genoa
Expropriations have already begun.
They also run jobs for the TERZO VALICO

The 'Terzo Valico' (third mountain pass), is a high-speed/high-capacity railway, not highway!

Those are artificial lakes that were formed when they stopped expropriating gravel from the ground. Such lakes are common in alpine valleys and plains that are surrounded with limestone and dolomites.
