The new 14-kilometer section of the A-68 highway between the Zaragoza towns of Figueruelas and Gallur entered service on March 23, with an official act in which the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda and the government of Aragon participated.

The project, drawn up by Ineco for the Demarcación de Carreteras de Aragón, consisted of doubling the carriageway and upgrading the layout of the N-232 road to convert it into a high-capacity road. The section accommodates daily traffic of 13,000 vehicles, of which more than 50% are heavy vehicles, and will add to the 28 kilometres of highway already in service between Zaragoza and Figueruelas. When work on the next section, up to Mallén, is completed towards the end of 2022, an axis of more than 80 kilometres of highway will be completed from Zaragoza to Alfaro, in La Rioja.
