|Autopistas and autovías in Spain|
The Autopista AP-2 is a highway (autopista) in the north of Spain that connects the northern coast with the eastern coast of the country. This highway, known as the Autopista del Nordeste (North-East motorway), starts at the city of Zaragoza, passes Lleida and ends at El Vendrell, 70 kilometers west of Barcelona, where it connects with AP-7. It is a toll road.
It is a major motorway in Spain because it is the only controlled-access motorway between Barcelona and Madrid. The free state-owned A-2 autovía is available between Madrid and Zaragoza, and between Lleida and Barcelona, but from Lleida to Zaragoza the traffic needs to either transfer to AP-2 or continue to Zaragoza through the standard highway N-II.
It was finished at 1977 and it is exploited under a concession agreement operated by Abertis.
