That's an 3-1 setup. Not that uncommon, but 4-0 is more common, yes.

Great report!

Who refreshes my memory, telling me what's going on that part of the A22? What kind of works are them, enlargement?

Don't know, but a good 60/70 km of the A22 has it full length near the Po river.

Steady light = some mist ahead.
Slowly glowing = careful
Whiplash = follow me.

I think they look this way because they are made in corten, a steel characterized by high resistance in corrosion and in case of impact and that has this colour, if exposed to weather conditions!

Engineering and testing of in-house designed safety barriers to improve user safety

In the ‘90’s, Autostrada del Brennero Spa invested heavily in user safety by constructing its own safety barriers in Core-Ten steel.
Currently, most of the “Autobrennero-type” safety barriers have been subjected to crash tests (in line with the provisions of Italian Ministerial Decree dated 21 June 2004) and the certification procedure has been submitted to the Italian Ministry for Infrastructure and Transport.
The Company is still working on the experimenting of its own safety barriers with the objective to further improve the safety standards of its stretch of motorway and, is currently developing a new prototype for the closing of the by-pass in the central guardrail.

Exactly, the newer they are and the rustier thy look. Older ones look brown.

Indeed the outer surface of uncoated Corten takes a few microns of rust but that's as far as corrosion goes. Corten (which is considerably more expensive than the highest yield standard steel) does not age and keeps elasticity and resilience in all weather conditions through the years.

Funny enough only A22 is apparently using it. Partly because of the cost and partly because somebody prefers the shiny look, which does not necessarily mean less safety, but surely less safety over the years.

Beacuse of chemistry Corten does not galvanized well. Plus it would be a waste of money cause it cannot be corroded.

Trieste bypass

Second report of Trieste bypass, I remember Verso doing it. My photos start after SLO/I border Fernetiči/Fernetti. Approaching junction with A4 Torino-Trieste motorway.


Joined the RA13 motorway, which can already be considered as Trieste bypass.










Inside the three kilometer tunnel.


Motorway ends and the SS202 expressway (superstrada) begins.


Another tunnel (392 m).


There are great views from the expressway on Trieste and the Adriatic Sea.




We'll be driving there.






Reactivation border control, because then was some kind of a summit in Italy at the border they checked passports.


Exit for the new expressway for Koper/Capodistria (Slovenia).


We were driving up there.


Approaching junction with the old road to Koper/Capodistria.




Triestes commieblocks.




A short tunnel here (247 m).




Last kilometers of the expressway.


Were off the expressway and now on a street in Trieste by the port.


Boats!


Now some pictures going uphill.


Cranes and the Adriatic sea.




Exit for the new expressway for Koper/Capodistria (Slovenia).


That's it.

Wasn't easy to find this post.

As I mentioned before, yes, it's a special lane for Turkish trucks, because they come here massively by a ferry which dock's in Trieste port. Here, in this picture all trucks you see on that viaduct are from Turkey.


View from Trieste bypass.


And here are pictures of their little ferry.

I see a lot of plagiarism in your post! Hey, awesome pics, driving on SS202 must be much better in a truck, where you can see the sea and other parts of the bypass, which can also be seen on pics.

Yeah, that's true.

I remember driving on the old bypass (in 2006?) when this new tunnel wasn't opened yet. If you're in a truck or a bus you can actually see whole the Trieste city, unforgettable views, then I didn't own a digital camera so I couldn't make any pictures.
