The project consists of a newly-routed Grade 2 motorway (autovía), about 20 km in length, running through an urban fringe area between Archena and Murcia. The new motorway runs through undulating terrain, crossing a large number of river channels, requiring numerous structures, some particularly long. The road is designed for a speed of 120 km/h; the section under consideration is made up of two roadways, with a 9-metre separation between the two; there are two 3.50 m roadways in either direction, with a 1.50 m inner shoulder and a 2.50 m outer shoulder.
