List of primary highways in Catalonia

C-25 or Eix Transversal (English: Transversal Arterial Road[1]) is a primary highway in Catalonia, Spain. According to the current coding for highways managed by the Generalitat de Catalunya, the first number C-25 indicates that is mainly a west-eastbound highway, and the second number C-25 indicates that is the fifth southernmost. The road begins at the intersection with Autovía A-2, near Cervera (comarca of Segarra), and finishes at Cassà de la Selva (comarca of Gironès), with a total length of 141 km. The last section of the C-25 to be constructed was finished on December 1997.

The main aims of the construction of this highway were:

  • to provide a high-speed connection for Central Catalonia's main towns (Vic, Manresa, Ripoll, etc.), between them as well as with Northeastern and the Western Catalonia
  • generally speaking, to create an "orbital route" in what in those days was mainly a radial network with its center in the city of Barcelona, i.e. a road network radiating out from Barcelona.

Despite these aims, the highway was built as a single-lane road and not as a freeway, and soon it was proved to become insufficient for the traffic supported [2].

On 2007 the Generalitat de Catalunya approved the upgrading of the highway to a freeway, which started on 2008 and is expected to be completed on 2011 [3].
