Spain: A-9 completely closed
The closure is due to construction work on the bypass connection between AP-9 and A-54, located in the urban area of Santiago de Compostela.
The affected motorway sections include both lanes of the AP-9 between KP 55 (Sigüeiro intersection) and KP 67 (Santiago Norte intersection), which will be closed from 10:00 PM on Wednesday, October 26, to 6:00 AM on Thursday, October 27.
Traffic towards A Coruña
Drivers heading for A Coruña will have to exit the AP-9 directly in front of the construction area (exit 67, Santiago Norte junction) and follow the recommended alternative route along the northbound SC-20 if they want to reach the A-54 or the Santiago-Rosalía de Castro international airport, and the SC-20 / N-550 if they are heading for Sigüeiro (exit 55), with the possibility of returning to the AP-9 in the direction of A Coruña.
Traffic towards Pontevedra
Drivers heading for Pontevedra will have to exit the AP-9 directly in front of the construction area at the Sigüeiro junction (exit 55) and follow the recommended alternative routes along the N-550 towards Pontevedra, or the SC-20 bypass with the possibility of returning to the AP-9 bound for Pontevedra via the Santiago Norte junction (exit 67).
In addition to standard vertical signs, information about the closure will be displayed on VMS panels along the AP-9 and information posters erected directly at motorway exits.
