To me this tower looks slightly Art deco. Nice...

Hi guys, I'm looking for information on the last piece of motorway in Tunisia connecting Bizerte/Tunis to the Algerian border which is probably at Tabarka. Does anyone know if/when this is being built and what route it will use? Thanks!

As the thread has become forgotten, I am refreshing it by adding some pictures from my last trip to Tunisia. This is going to be most likely the largest gallery of Tunisian roads as I travelled there by car. I came down through all Italy and took ferry from Trapani (Sicilly) to Tunis.

Enjoy the photos....

Wow, that's some trip! Can you tell us some more about the ferry to Tunisia, driving around there, any comments on your PL license plate, etc?

Certainly ferry from Trapani to Tunis runs for about 8 hours. On the way back we choose longer trip - Tunis - Salerno, which takes 22 hours, however you gain 800 km, which otherwise you would need to drive what takes several hours anyway. Road network in quite a good condition. Tunisians drive their cars in chaotic way but in the course of time you can easily get used to it. I was feeling there safely and never encountered any sign of hostility. I would even say that they reacted quite friendly when seen polish plates especially the police who always let me go even when violating traffic regulations . Petrol costs 0,5 Euro per liter - amazing, isn't it ? The funny situations were when the tourists from my home country took pictures of my car as an attraction from their holiday

Thank you for the awesome photos.
What is the plan for connecting Sfax-Libya & connecting wherever the western autoroute ends to Algeria?

As far as I know, there are plans to build a pan-Mediterranean corridor from Casablanca to Cairo. This route is mostly completed in Algeria, significantly completed in Egypt, Tunisia and Morocco and Libya recently announced plans for a € 4.5 billion east-west motorway of 1.700 kilometer, to be build by Italian companies.

The next strech whould be Sfax-Gabes. Probably they have started the construction already. Haven't been to Tunisia for some years.

Why on earth would you encounter "hostility" from Tunisians?

good question..

Thatīs what I was asking to myself as I got stuck somewhere in the pampas and couldnīt get to Tunis coz the president would hold a meeting in the capital city and it could be dangerous for "western" people to be there at the same time..

Haha I think I recall this spot. I bet this is where all the coaches park and poeple take pictures. I took my pictures right besides that sign and collected a that salty rock.
