5.944 parking spaces for trucks on the entire Italian tollway network. No wonder all SOS niches becoming parking lots every night...

Would Trafori internazionali (international tunnels) just mean tunnels that cross Italy's borders? So that would be the Mont Blanctunnel, the Fréjustunnel and some other minor ones, right?

There are plenty of rest places in Italy but they're not very big, especially not for trucks.

Germany has 44.000 parking spaces for trucks, but estimates give a shortage of 30.000 truck parking spaces. That's 5 times the entire Italian tollway network. As Italy is also a big country, it isn't hard to imagine the Italian truck parking shortage.

Google maps is full of mistakes and out of date for Ireland so I made a few fixes based on openstreetmap. Here are current motorways in the Republic of Ireland including under construction sections:
[IMG]http://i41.************/2en2o1h.png[/IMG]

(zoomed in to show the labels so the north is cut off - not labelled are the M2, M3 U/C (anti-clockwise from M1) the M18 partially U/C (the north-south strip in the west) and the M11 (east coast).)

Much better pic posted in the Ireland forum - National routes & motorways plan for 2012:

Nice job

Now Poland, map by Moloch, esce, latajacy_dywan


Legend: Green - done; red - u/c; pink - done tender Project & Bulid; yellow - tender; brown - ongoing tender Project & Bulid; blue - enviromental decision (UE specific stuff, simply means that all paper works are done)

A - Motorways - min. 2x2 non-collisional, lane 3.75m, shoulder 3.5m, min/max straight 500m/2000m, min. curve radius 750m; min. curve length 300m; max speed 130 km/h
S - Expressways 2x2 - min. 2x2 non-collisional; lane 3.5m, max speed 110 km/h; rest like motorway (the difference A <> S is mostly in intersection density)
S - Expressways 1x2 - min 1x2 non-collisional; lane 3.75m, max speed 100 km/h; rest like motorway;
GP, G - 2x2 or 1x4 national road, non-collisional (GP) but mostly collisional, without multilevel corsing, max speed up to 130 km/h, mostly 70, 90, 100 km/h.
Others - other national roads, mostly 1x2, sometimes 1x3, speed limits max 90 km/h

the most recent mapping services

Nice thread. However, I would like to ask you guys, which system of the online mapping, or gps mapping, would you use for the most updated map of motorways, in particular in Europe.

I am planning quite long trip for this summer and I would like to make some better planning than I did the last year, since even the official maps from ANWB were shoving motorways in places where there were none and vice versa.

For online planning I use mainly Google maps. Sometimes I look at Michellin maps as they show the quality of roads bit better. However, these are even more outdated.

As the most reliable source on the national level showed up for me, in czech republic, the local portal with its map service: http://www.mapy.cz that also seems to cover the european motorways in nice way.

For the gps I use tom tom navigation which is not completaly up to date and defaultly doesnt cover that much of especialy south east of Europe as I would like. For these purposes I used also Nav and Go on my phone. It had much better coverage, but the phone made it not so handy to use.

What I would like to find are the most up to date maps, that are actually working withing the route planning system. Something with the design of Michellin maps, but really updated, would be the best choice for the online planning. Since this is close to unobtainable, my second choice would be for the national online map services, since they should be the most recently updated sources of road maps. Please could you give your suggestions? Thanks.

PS: Is there a section devoted also to duall carriageway roads? Not all the roads have the status of motorways or expressways, but they are direction separated and sometimes also grade separated. Road doesnt have to be marked as motorway to offer speed and comfort and therefore this info is also of interest I guess.
