Thank you! I checked and it was automatically set for even 85 %. There is nothing to do with rest of Tunisian A1 but I can still fix rest of photos from Cabo Verde.

nice pics and fairly good motorway network for a poor country of 10 millions.
how much you paid in tolls between sfax and tunis ? did you venture in northwest tunisia roads?

Yes, the Tunisian motorways are very good. And they take good care of them.

The standard of the roads in Tunisia are still great contrasts, where they have very fine motorways while the other roads often remain outdated. I have been through nearly the whole of Tunisia and usually return there sometimes.

The signs on the Tunisian motorways look like in France, except for the Arabic letters

The price for Sfax-Sousse is 2.60 dinars and 2.30 dinars for rest of motorway. So it's about 2.20 EUR for some 240 km.

I have been allover Tunisia some 15 years ago but I don't have any pictures of road from these times. I can remember that mountains around Tabarka were quite nice.

Some expressways of Grand Tunis.

Boulevard Mohamed Bouazizi to the east, it's probably RR21. It's the main expressway connecting towns of northern Grand Tunis.

RR23 to the east. This road is connecting Tunis to La Goulette and other towns on Mediterranean coast. It's built across lake of Tunis next to railroad which was opened on dam at 1872 already.

Bridge of Radès-La Goulette was opened at 2009.

Some new opening 'dates' are announced for major autoroute projects in Tunisia.

The 155 kilometer segment of A1 from Sfax to Gabès will open 'before the end of summer'.

The 70 kilometer segment of A3 from Zarga to Bousalem will open in September

The 85 kilometer A1 extension from Gabès to Medenine will open in late 2017.

Another segment of A1 from Medenine is also under construction to near the Libyan border. Earlier news reports said this could open in 2018.

The first stupid question, which came in my mid, was if it wouldn't be more intelligent to build an Tunis ring road. Tunis is by far the biggest agglomeration. Most other bigger cities are connected (or almost) by motorway. Whoever planned Sfax loved ringroads. Should be copied...

Tunis has an urban ring road which has been mostly grade-separated between 2007 and 2011. The north-south route linking A1 and A4 is also a controlled-access urban expressway.

There are some low mountain ranges northwest of Tunis. A new beltway would likely go beyond that.

There is few transit through Tunis. Most of traffic is from/to Tunis and suburban traffic of Greater Tunis.

Various media report that the first 100 kilometer segment of A1 from Sfax towards Gabès will open to traffic on 28 November.

Google Earth puts the nearest exit at 94 km from Sfax, near Skhira. The next exit to P15 is more than 40 kilometers farther south, so I think it's safe to assume that Sfax - Skhira will open to traffic. Unless they plan a temporary end point at road C89 which is exactly 100 km from the current terminus at Sfax.

The remaining segment to Gabès (quoted as 40 km, but in reality more like 60 km from Skhira) is planned to open early 2017.

It is also reported that A3 from Bou Salem to Oued Zarga is still on track to open before the end of the year.

There are no reports indicating that it opened on the 28th as the media reported earlier.
