Back from Calabria. Drove (almost) all A3 and man, improvements are HUGE. There are still some stretches untouched (south of Cosenza for instance) and in many other parts impressive roadworks are ongoing (between Lauria and Lagonegro in Basilicata, and south of Bagnara but I didn't drive the latter).
Didn't like Calabria though. It felt like being in a war zone - never saw so many policemen and carabinieri around all together.

The latter sector (Bagnara C. - Villa San Giovanni), when finally completed, will be one of the most impressive highway works in the World, in my very humble opinion.

Probably this report would be better to be in the Italian section?

Better too much police than lack of it and lawlessness. When I was in Sicily 3 years ago I saw much less police on the roads than in Northern Italy.

It wasn't road police. It was criminality police.
