Spain. The signal was very used but I do not remember any "new signal" in new roads like that.

Hint: This road has no Clave or name, in fact is a Motorway exit/entrance.

Looking for a motorway exit seems to be harder

Well, a picture of a random motorway-exit can be anywhere in Spain.
A picture from the road doesn't give a clue on the landscape, like a picture from above does. So if there isn't going to be a tonload of hints soon, I'll wait till the next picture.

Well… take a look at the last pages of [E] Spanish Autopistas and Autovías.

IV Sector route, in III sector.

Have no time to find now but should someone want to try, some hints:

- IV Sector Route means in Spain means between N-IV and N-V (all roads starting N-4XX in case of national roads)

- III sector means distance to Madrid. This is about 200-300 km away if I'm not wrong.

Being a motorway and looking to the photos, I would take a time to look for exits of the motorway between Manzanares and Puertollano (even if the same number do not look eastern Manzanares).

They are about 80 km motorway and not too many exits so with those hints it should not be difficult now

Am I wrong???



PS. Pity not to have time to look for it. I was living exactly at Manzanares for two years a long time ago. It is a medium town in the middle of a motorway cross.

That picture could stay easily in the Spanish thread of roads.

In other words... should anyone see a national road in Spain will understand if it is N-I to N-VI or if it is N-XXX, why the first and second digits. Third digit usually even are east-west and odd are north-south... but you can find exemptions.

With the first motorway you will notice the same system for numbering A-XX, with the exemptions of A-7 (Mediterranean), A-8 (Cantabric) and A-9 (Atlantic).

In any case what it is saying is the point where the zero kilometre is located.

For instance... N-120 at Vigo has that number because starts at Logroño.

Edit... All roads at Balearic and Canary islands depend of regional governments and do not have the national road numeration, but a self island numeration.

"African possesions", which should start with 9 do not exists. Only little roads from Ceuta to border with Morocco (I think there is nothing from State in Melilla) is N-4XX.

After those hints and looking on the map, I think the road to look for is too hard to find, even with those hints.

For making easy, could you post a picture of the motorway in the surroundings for help anyone?

Yep, a motorway in Spain paved with concrete… this one should be really easy: Just have a look at the terrain.

That's A-7 west of Almería.

Now where is this toll gate into the sea?

Isn't the blue sign with a car on it quite rare in Spain?

Yes it is... but it exists. That's why I knew it should be an entrance to a motorway and seemed to hard to find.
