Is there an opening date for Rodoanel Leste in São Paulo? It was planned to open in May 2014.

There were some delays and since the beginning of the year they realised only part of it would be opened now (everything but a 8km section near Guarulhos Airport).

According to this they're still hoping to delivery it in May (and the final north section in June):

Do Diário do Grande ABC


A Artesp (Agência Reguladora do Estado de São Paulo) espera que a SPMar, responsável pela construção do Trecho Leste do Rodoanel, cumpra os prazos de entrega informados. Segundo o cronograma, a primeira etapa das obras – entroncamento com o Trecho Sul, em Mauá, passando por Ribeirão Pires, até a Rodovia Ayrton Senna – deve estar pronta para a circulação de veículos ainda neste mês. São 37 quilômetros de pistas.

A segunda etapa, até a Rodovia Presidente Dutra, deverá ser concluída em junho. Segundo a agência, a interdição de 500 metros da obra em Itaquaquecetuba durante cinco dias, no fim de abril, não influenciou o planejamento. Um operário morreu e outro ficou ferido após a queda de uma pilastra.

De acordo com o contrato firmado entre o Estado e a SPMar – concessionária que já é responsável pelo Trecho Sul –, o Trecho Leste do Rodoanel deveria ter sido entregue em 10 de março. A agência diz que a multa diária por descumprimento é de R$ 417 mil, descontado o percentual do serviço que foi executado dentro do prazo.

O valor final da cobrança será definido após a conclusão de 100% das obras. A SPMar pode reverter o quadro se apresentar justificativas técnicas e situações não previstas antes da licitação.

Most of forumers on the Brazilian thread, however, believe it's impossible and it will most likely be delivered by July.

Additionally, the northern bypass would open new areas for industrial zoning, something Londrina needs desperately.
This pic recently posted on Londrina Projects thread shows how urban BR-369 is. Aside this very small section in the Cambé-Londrina border (from where the pic was taken), it's an avenue, with supermarkets, hotels, banks, office towers, car dealers, etc:





An eastern bypass is also being discussed (a R$ 170 million project):

BR-376, Paraná state

Upgrading to 2x2, between Ponta Grossa (east) and Apucarana (north):

Começou esta semana a construção da nova ponte do rio Tibagi, na Rodovia do Café (BR-376), no distrito Tibagi dos Coreanos, em Ponta Grossa. Quando pronta, terá 125 metros de comprimento e 11 metros de largura. A obra faz parte da duplicação de 231 quilômetros, da BR- 376, que liga Ponta Grossa a Apucarana. A primeira etapa, que iniciou em janeiro, prevê a duplicação de 11 quilômetros.

Além da construção da ponte, as equipes trabalham com 45 máquinas ao longo dos 11 quilômetros. Elas fazem a limpeza, terraplenagem, aterros, implantação de drenagem e concluem a fundação dos dois viadutos sobre a linha férrea. A duplicação foi antecipada pela concessionária Rodonorte após negociações com o Governo do Paraná.

“Essa duplicação é a maior obra dentro do Anel de Integração do Estado. A obra é necessária devido ao grande tráfego de veículos na rodovia” disse o secretário estadual de Infraestrutura e Logística, José Richa Filho.

A nova pista terá 7,2 metros de largura, além de acostamentos, e ficará separada da atual pista por meio de um canteiro central de nove metros. Também serão construídos dois viadutos sobre a rede ferroviária e quatro retornos. Há ainda a previsão de corrigir horizontalmente e verticalmente as curvas. O prazo para conclusão desta primeira fase é de 15 meses.

OUTROS TRECHOS – Os demais trechos que farão parte dessa grande duplicação estão com o projeto executivo em andamento, assim como a ligação entre Apucarana e Califórnia. Toda a obra será feita em etapas. Após essa primeira fase, será duplicado um trecho de mais dez quilômetros, cujo projeto está em fase final. Após a finalização de cada trecho, a duplicação do trecho seguinte será iniciada.

Como este trecho foi antecipado, não há interferência nas tarifas das praças de pedágio já existentes, localizadas em Tibagi, Imbaú e Ortigueira. O investimento previsto para duplicar a Rodovia do Café, que faz parte do contrato de concessão que durará até 2021, é de R$ 1 bilhão.

That's probably the most absurd highway in Brazil. It links the Londrina-Maringá axis (2 million inhabitants) to Curitiba (3.3 million inhabitants) and the Port of Paranaguá, the largest soybeans exporter in the world. Paraná is one of the biggest producers in the world, and the bulk of it is centered in the North and West part of it.

It seems that the reason was a black out in Sao Paulo, which cased traffic lights not to work..

Interesting video featuring the recently opened Maringá's Northern Bypass, from east to west:



At 1:42 (it's its west end) it looks like the freeways on Sim City 3000.

I'm amazed people still build cloverleafs, I thought they had been outmoded for a while now, Ontario (where I live) is eliminating the final two in the province over the next 3 or 4 years. ( a province with several thousand km of motorways)

I guess they are still the cheapest motorway - motorway interchange though.

Cloverleafs are fine if the traffic volumes are low.

Ontario cloverleafs are replaced by parclos, which means traffic lights. This may not be an issue in an urban areas where traffic lights are common, but on a motorway-to-motorway interchange, a parclo would be substandard because it doesn't allow free-flow for all directions.

Cloverleafs are also rare in Texas. San Antonio still has a number of cloverleafs for freeway-to-freeway interchanges.

An interesting observation is that cloverleafs are commonly used in North America for freeway-to-urban arterial interchanges. This is far less common in Europe, where most cloverleafs are between free-flow roads.

Nice pics of BR-116 widening at this sector

AADT is around 22000 but more than 70% are long trucks.

They are building a new 2-lane alignment for southbound (downhill) traffic. The old 2+1 ROW will be then used for northbound (uphill) traffic.
