Unfortunately, Airbus has ceased the A380 production, so "soon" (in the year 2021) there will be no more those special transport convoys for those HUGE parts. There will still be, of course, the transportation of parts for other models. But lots of them can be done by actual Beluga and the new Beluga XL aircraft. Neighbors of the towns near Toulouse would have them more calm, but we would lose the possibility to see those spectacular imaged of the A380 fuselage passing by places where houses are smaller than it.

Regards and happy new year

Below you'll find an image showing the parts of the port of Barcelona:

In addition, when developing Zona Franca (if you do it), you'll find that in Carrer A (https://www.google.es/maps/@41.3259099, ... 384!8i8192) there are some train tracks. They aren't exactly train tracks but metro tracks. It is the L10 Sud (https://www.ara.cat/2018/09/08/societat ... 0x1000.png). This part of the subway is not yet open to public but some trains are going now and then so the tracks don't get rusty as they are fully functional. This metro's model is an Alstom S9000 model.

New segment SE-40 (Sevilla)

From the last month (Dec. 2019) you can already drive on the SE-40. The road works of the segment between Alcalá de Guadaira and Dos Hermanas have finished. In the near future it will no longer be necessary to go through the SE-30/A-4 if you want to go to Jerez de la Frontera, Cádiz or Algeciras.

Note: AP-4 appears with "AP" in Google Maps, but since Jan. 2020 in this Autopista you don't have to pay tolls anymore.

Another detail that I want to mention is the new shopping center "Lagoh" that can be seen perfectly from the SE-30 and is very very close to "Puente del Centenario", maybe a nice spot to take/leave cargoes.

Hello everyone and Happy new year.

This is very important news for us, that AP-4 is toll-free. If there are some other toll-free highways since 2020 we would like to know about them. Somewhere i was reading that part of AP-7 should be toll-free too. So more info we get the better, best info we could get would be from which specific tollgate the highway is free.

Hello @Senfik, happy new year to you and all SCS staff too.

Several highways have become toll free on the last years in Spain. Just in case you don't have all the info on SCS, here's the list.

Since December 2018, the AP-1 on its sector between Burgos up to Armiñón (Álava province).

Since January 1st this 2020, both AP-4 section between Sevilla and Cádiz, and AP-7 section Between Alicante and Tarragona are now toll free. Tolls still exist until they will be dismantled, but barriers are raised.

Unless some nasty political maneuver happens (that will cost the responsible a lot of anger and votes), the rest of AP-7 between Tarragona and French border at La Jonquera will be also toll free in the August 2021 (now that sector is toll free in it's bypass of Barcelona, between Martorell and La Roca).

Also in 2021, the AP-2 between Zaragoza and it's link with AP-7 between Tarragona and Barcelona will be toll free.

When that happens, there could be some weird collateral damages. Because AP-X is a road designation that means "Autopsta de Peaje", translated as tolled highway (I think I already explained that lots of messages before). It's supposed that if those highways become open, they should lose the AP-X name to have an A-X like name. But both A-2 and A-7 motorways already exist. Still worse, they are completely different roads than AP-2 and AP-7 but they are near in some points (around Zaragoza you could find both AP-2 and A-2; south of Murcia AP-7 and A-7 run in parallel but separated several kilometers).

I don't know if the government would keep the AP-X names and completely ignore the meaning of it. I suppose they will do so in order to save money and lots of problems.

Regards

In the north they built a new tollgate (Madel posted a photo of it a few posts above) at this point for the toll of the AP-7 north of there, so to the south of it it's free now. The problem is that this new tollgate will only work until August 2021 because the stretch north of it (all the way to the French border) will also be made free at that date if nothing strange changes, as Some newbie driver mentioned. So I don't know if you want to make it and then have to remove it in the game less than a year after the DLC launches.

In the south it's free from this point to the north. The new tollgate hasn't been built yet and some movements are free until they build it.

For the AP-1 stretch which is free since 2018, I already posted here which part of it is now free.

A Coruña

First of all I want to mention one thing about Galicia in general. There are this types of platforms all along the "Rías Baixas" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R%C3%ADas_Baixas) called "Bateas" used to farm seafood and it's an important industry in this region.

Some photos of Bateas:

A-7 Autovía del Mediterráneo

The Autovía A-7 (also called Autovia del Mediterráneo) is a Spanish autovía (toll-free limited-access highway) which starts in La Jonquera, near the French frontier and ends in Algeciras. It was finally finished in late 2015 upon completion of sections west of Almeria and around Motril, is a free alternate route to the tolled Autopista AP-7, and is the longest national motorway in Europe.
