Many projects in Brazil are four-laning projects, not necessarily full motorways. They tend to have interchanges only with important roads. São Paulo however is a state that tends to build them at a higher standard than elsewhere.

An example of a twinning project: BR-101 near Aracaju in the state of Sergipe. This was built 2 years ago.

Any news on urban freeways in Brazil? Traffic inside cities seems to be madness in many urban areas of Brazil.

I spent more than 1 hour in this 1km section, going to Guarulhos Airport back on my vacation in August. 19:00 p.m., rain, hell...

No. And coincidentally I made a post about it yesterday on the São Paulo Public Transport thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...51447&page=172

And I'm not even mentioning the various upgrades on both networks.

I seriously suspect that the worst is yet to come, in terms of overcrowding.

Still on this, car fleet growth in São Paulo metro area. And that's excluding motorbikes:

Between 2001 and 2010, the São Paulo state car fleet jumped from 9.2 million to 15.3 million (66% growth). We should keep in mind almost zero investments have been made to improve São Paulo's urban freeway system in the past 15 years.

So, to me, the overcrowding of the subway/train systems is actually stopping the growth of São Paulo's already huge traffic jams. If the system collapses, people can always go back to their cars.

Interesting fact that traffic on the cross street switches sides and drives on the left to cross this huge intersection. Likely to reduce the clearance time (the time required to clear the intersection of traffic before the next phase begins).

The last 6 km of São Paulo Roadring eastern section, between Dutra and Ayrton Senna highways (both linking São Paulo to Paraíba Valley cities and then to Rio de Janeiro) will be delivered on May:

A totalidade do Trecho Leste do Rodoanel deverá ficar pronta apenas em maio, dez meses depois da inauguração da primeira parte da obra, entre o entroncamento com o setor Sul, em Mauá, e a Rodovia Ayrton Senna, em Itaquaquecetuba. Resta ser concluído segmento de apenas cinco quilômetros até a Via Dutra, em Arujá. Por conta dos atrasos, a concessionária SPMar, responsável pela construção, já foi notificada a pagar multas de quase R$ 60 milhões.

A informação de que a inauguração total ocorrerá em maio foi fornecida nesta semana pelo governador Geraldo Alckmin (PSDB) durante evento em Suzano. No início do mês. a SPMar disse ao Diário que a obra seria finalizada em março. Esse é o terceiro atraso na data de entrega do trecho complementar. A primeira parte do empreendimento foi liberada para o tráfego em julho, quando o cronograma original previa março como prazo final para a abertura dos 43,5 quilômetros da via – e não apenas de 38, como foi feito.

“De acordo com o andamento das obras , a previsão é que a concessionária SPMar finalize a segunda etapa do Trecho Leste até maio”, confirmou a Artesp (Agência de Transporte do Estado de São Paulo), em nota. O órgão já aplicou notificações no valor de quase R$ 60 milhões à empresa, quantia que aumentará após a inauguração total, já que a punição é definida com base nos dias de atraso. As multas ainda não foram pagas, pois está correndo prazo para recursos.

A SPMar considera que não se trata de atrasos, e sim “reprogramações do cronograma de obras”, ocasionadas por “eventos que vão além da ação da concessionária”. Entre eles, cita dificuldades burocráticas, como demora para obtenção de licenças. A empresa diz que “as aprovações dos projetos do entroncamento com a Rodovia Presidente Dutra só ocorreram em outubro, 15 meses após o previsto”. Outro problema apontado é o acréscimo de obras que não estariam previstas no edital, como interferências não cadastradas, aumento em mais de 60% do volume de terraplanagem, diferença de profundidade dos solos em áreas alagadas e várzea e variações geológicas”.

Questionado sobre as alegações da concessionária, Alckmin demonstrou que as explicações não são plausíveis. “Claro que ela vai sempre procurar se justificar”, comentou.

Segundo a SPMar, o primeiro trecho, entre a Avenida Papa João XXIII, em Mauá, e a Rodovia Ayrton Senna, foi feito em pouco mais de 34 meses, média de 1,1 quilômetro por mês. “Isso representa quase o dobro da média dos outros trechos do Rodoanel – Sul e Oeste –, que se aproximaram de 600 metros/mês”, acrescenta. Pelo segmento, passam diariamente cerca de 15 mil veículos.

O investimento aplicado pela concessionária foi de R$ 3,2 bilhões, além de R$ 389 milhões referentes à outorga, valor pago na assinatura do contrato. A SPMar diz ser a “principal interessada em finalizar a construção da rodovia o quanto antes”. Isso porque, antes da conclusão, os pedágios não podem ser cobrados.

Alça de acesso na divisa de Ribeirão não tem data para ser construída

Prometida para ser entregue em julho, a alça de acesso ao Trecho Leste do Rodoanel na divisa entre Ribeirão Pires e Suzano não tem data para começar a ser construída. Segundo a Artesp (Agência de Transporte do Estado de São Paulo), a obra não está prevista no contrato de concessão com a SPMar para construção e operação da via, “por isso, há todo um trâmite administrativo, jurídico e técnico a ser cumprido”.

A agência reguladora informa que a empresa já entregou o projeto básico para a construção do trevo, próximo à Estrada dos Fernandes. “Esse material foi alvo de análise dos técnicos da Artesp, que agora solicitou à concessionária o projeto executivo – onde há descrição detalhada de como será realizado o empreendimento, com informações como método construtivo, tipo de fundação e estimativa de custos, por exemplo”.

De acordo com a Artesp, o prazo dado pela concessionária para envio dos projetos é até o fim de março.

Em julho, quando a primeira parte do Rodoanel Leste foi inaugurada, o governador Geraldo Alckmin (PSDB) afirmou que a estimativa era que a obra custasse aproximadamente R$ 132 milhões. Na ocasião, o chefe do Palácio dos Bandeirantes afirmou que o empreendimento beneficiaria moradores e empresas de regiões como o Alto Tietê e o Grande ABC.

There's much to be done, of course, but Brazilian roads are becoming more and more ''civilized''.

Fair enough.

However, there are certain failures that just show lack of care or outright laziness. For instance, the fact many new highways are still fit with signs that violate the national manual for road signaling, with things like unevenly spaced making lanes, unofficial fonts on signs, haphazard opening or access to the roadway without any concern for traffic flow or safety, etc.

8.227 traffic fatalities on a good 200 million people is only around 40 fatalities per 1 million people. It would rank Brazil among the safest countries by European standards.

Federal roads only, Chris...

Brazil is actually one of the worst: 60,752 deaths in 2012.
