so, lets see how it looks at Sardinia. i won't open new thread because i traveled a lot during the night, so i don't have too many photos. but some 60 of them i will publish. for the beginning - 2 nice views which are so typical for that island. it is somewhere around Castelsardo, i think SP81



Castelsardo

i had an apartment in Ossi near Sassari. this is entrance to main expressway SS131 at exit Ossi


and contiunuing to nearby Sassari






Sassari bypass


2 expressways lead from Sassari to Porto Torres. here they split one from other


SS291 Sassari - Alghero. scooters are not rare at expressways


also, description signs are often. so you can find "fine strada a 4 corsie" or "Sassari a 2 corsie" at direction signs or similar. really often.


view on fabolous Capo Caccia

this is SP13m, kind of wide bypass of Castelsardo. do you find name of the tunnel (Elefante) weird? you will see at next photo why that name


because this rock is placed above it


2km long viaduct Della Piena. somewhere i have a photo of ti from a plane

now we're going at SS13 from Sassari to south. expresway somewhere has hard shoulders


typical exit




it is quite narrow. fortunately, freight traffic is extremely low at whole island.


but when you meet rare trucks at narrow expressway...


they cannot hold the lane, so this happens


i thought that road would be more interesting. it is actually quite boring.




it has few "ukrainian-styled" U turns. i missed to photograph them


but it has some T-intersections. speed limit is 50 at those places. at normal exits speed limit is 80, and rest 110 (although i haven't seen single 110 sign)




service areas are also rare and poor (comparing to those at continental Italy). i saw only one Autogrill. btw, fuel is damn expensive, €1,24 at Agip, but on other stations €1,34-€1,40


dividing SS597 to Nuoro










intersection with SS131dc (one part of the mayn Y expressway)

bridge over lake Omodeo


and from other view point


and one more where you can see old abandoned bridge, too


expressway in direction Nuoro is more interesting. unfortunately, i haven't passed the most interesting part from Nuoro to Olbia.






at exit Oniferi we continued at SS128 in direction Fonni and tortoli. road is beatiful, i enjoyed driving through those curves fast in rented Fiesta with perfect suspension, so i didn't take many photos of it. here is one


after Fonni i missed turn to expressway in direction Tortoli, so i sontinued on old road over Correboi pass. and i must say - fortunately! views up there are just fabolous! this is at the pass. down you can see expressway which goes under that pass through tunnel




this is that 2lane expressway. road is very wide, 4 m each lane i'd say (somewhere even wider)

from Tortoli we took SS125 to north (direction Olbia). that road is definitelya one of the most beatifull roads i have ever driven on! views are breathless, curvy, but in good condition, i just cannot describe it.
here is nice cover, i'd say about 3 km long


where do they find their motives?!


it was sunny and warm...


...but soon we entered into heavy rain, we had to drive 30-40. this is when raind stopped already




and just 5 minutes after rainy area - this. and rainy area lasted for some maybe 5-8 km








and for the end of this session - exit from new tunnel at connector road to Cala Gonona


here sun went down, so no more photos. and i must say that this was the best sunset i have ever seen! it was near Dorgali

we're back to northwest. this is somewhere around Sassari.


this is entering Sassari bypass




direction Alghero




again hard shoulders


intersection SS131-SS125


panorama of Sassari








exit to Ossi (my apartment )


very tight



that's it. expressways are not interesting at all, but island is really good and full of various terrains. worth to visit!

Nice report!

Sardinia is a bit unknown territory for most, I guess, due to the "remote" nature of the island.

But the SSC Highway & Autobahn forumers conquer all of Europe!

In average they look much better than Sicilian autostradas. Looks like not much mafia around.

The Sardinian photos are fascinating. I've always wanted to see that place.

One thing I don't understand, though. This is the intersection of the Sassari-Cagliari expressway with the road going to Olbia. Can someone please explain why a full cloverleaf is needed?

One of the exits on the left side on the A51 near Milano.



It's dangerous, but apparently they are rebuilding them.
