The Spanish Ministry of Works requires further funds to complete work on the 261.5km A-11 Duero Highway. A further €1.13 billion is needed to pay for the work on the stretch between Los Rabanos (Soria) and San Martin del Predroso (Zamora) on the border with Portugal. There has already been €54.2 million invested in the project, which paid for construction of the 15.2km of the Aranda de Duero bypass but work is currently at a standstill. No new work has been carried out since July 2010 when the 6.2km Ronda Norte de Zamora section of the infrastructure was opened to traffic, costing some €27 million.
