I thought so, but here pictured is the newest part and it looks very bright for just 3 year old asphalt.

Are there any concrete sections anywhere on Italian road network?

I see. Well, they could call the new expressway "RA18".

Btw, what does SS 202 ex G. V. T. mean? (I know, your pic ) Does "ex" mean the same as in English (former)? If so, why? It's still G. V. T. (Grande ViabilitÓ Triestina), isn't it? (and the sign doesn't look new anyway)

No, I am sure (99%).

Until 1997 "sopraelevata (now SS202)" was classified as Grande ViabilitÓ Triestina without number. Grande ViabilitÓ Triestina is still used but as a nickname ( http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grande_...3%A0_Triestina ).

It's RA1 only for ANAS.
There is also the FI-PI-LI: http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strada_...e-Pisa-Livorno

It hasn't an SS number.

NSA = Nuova Strada Anas = New Anas Road are temporary (but maybe for years...) numbers.

Yes, FI-PI-LI is more special than "Tang. Bologna" because has a dedicated (and unique) "number": FI-PI-LI . Only FI-PI-LI has a symbol with letters.

According to the signals "Tangenziale di Bologna" is "tangenziale" and it hasn't a dedicated symbol but "tangenziale di bologna" has a dedicated number (RA1), even if RA1 doesn't appear in the signal. FI-PI-LI is FI-PI-LI.

NSA is temporary but permanent . In fact signals ( the road is managed by ANAS ) were installed in Tangenziale di Novara with number NSA88:

I don't know. But it can be called FI-PI-LI too. Example: A57 diramazione aeroporto, ... others: http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raccord...i_autostradali

Nice Treviso bypass (not ring ), although boring speed limit. I'm surprised it has a rest area.

by the way, the signal was installed to celebrate the
completion of the work (2008) of the ring of Padua (2 km were not
built) that allow you to go to Berlin & co. only by "autostrade"

Lol indeed, it looks like a usual sign. Anyway, thanks for some more pics of the closest ring to my own city's ring. If I'm correct, it's about 28 km long. Is all of it 4-laned?
