Spain is planning to invest €1.21bn on 15 highway construction projects by 2020.

The government plans to invest €104m in the Leon La Baneza highway and €142m on two motorways between Palencia and Paredes de Nava, and Palencia and Carrion de los Condes.

The project will include the last stretch of Segovia’s ring road. Also, the Leon Toreno Paramo and Villablino Piedrafita de Babia highway projects are at a very advanced proceedings stage.

The construction of the second stretch of the IV Centenario highway is put up for tender and will cost €105m.

In addition, work on the AP-41 and A-32 road projects will start shortly while the La Alcarria free highway project is about to be launched.

The Vallvidrera road tunnel in Catalonia will be extended to Foix and Numancia. The project, which includes construction of a new passage as well as road extensions, will cost about €200m.
