Good question. They built it after this segment was widened to eight lanes. According to Google Earth, they started building it in 2012.

Builds a bridge to link the park that's on the left of the image with the future park that will be on the airbase (on the right of the image).

That airbase will be converted into a new park in the coming years.

Sorry for my english.

Thanks
That is a great project, definitely better to have a park than an airbase in the middle of the city

The "La Carlota" airbase to a park ? Hmmm...

You have already got, not too far, the famous Parque del Este. Moreover, the surroundings of La Carlota are not houses nor residential buildings. It's 2 motorways, a couple of shopping centers (CCCT, Sambil) and hotels...

Given these facts & given the high criminality rates in Caracas, I don't think it's the most urgent to transform this airbase into a park - although it would certainly be very nice

"Richtgeschwindigkeit" should be the default system in all EU motorways & expressways & lane indiscipline should be harshly fought! Down with radars on motorways!

Venezuelan media report of the inauguration of a 4 kilometer stretch of Autopista from Los Totumos and La Bonanza.

http://www.noticias24.com/venezuela/...za-en-miranda/

Apparently, this is a reconstruction of the Autopista a Charallave south of Caracas. They seem to want to extend that route to Kempis to form a southeastern bypass of greater Caracas.

An oldie, but I like it. Driving from La Guaira (not far from Maiquetía, where the Caracas international airport is) to Caracas. You can see the toll in Catia La Mar. Almost all that infrastructure (bridges - except one that collapsed and had to be rebuilt; tunnels, etc.) have been there since the 50s if I'm not mistaken.
Don't ask me why the driver keeps on the left lane all the time - nobody cares about lane discipline there. And also, I believe you could see so few cars because this video was taken early in the morning.
Without getting into politics: all the trash you could see on the emergency lane would have been unthinkable before 1998 ...

Click here to see from where to where this video was made.

The Autopista Francisco Fajardo in Caracas has been widened to four lanes in each direction near Distribuidor La Araña. This segment carries 210,000 vehicles per day.

Metropolitan Plan of Mobility in Great Caracas:





Valle - Coche Highway Extension













It's going to have the longest viaduct in the country with 7km, and it's going to benefit the entrance to Caracas of the cities of Altos Mirandinos and Valles del Tuy, around 800,000 people, also the center and the west of the country. It's going to be finished on november.

Verota - Kempis Highway

21km of a class of bypass to the great Caracas, trucks that have to go from the west to the east of the country are not going to drive in the city of Caracas anymore... helping to the mobility of the city.











This new highway is going to be finished between december of this year and march of 2016.

those pictures seem oddly underused for 210,000 cars on a 8 lane highway. I would think that thing would be packed all day like that. I know highways in Ontario that are at roughly 210,000 have as many as 14 lanes, not 8.
