The new Madrid-Toledo (AP-41) toll road makes it possible to travel comfortably and safely from the Spanish capital to the imperial City, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, in approximately 30 minutes.
The 71.5 kilometre-long motorway, which passes by some of the most interesting and historical towns in the Community of Madrid and Province of Toledo, has new interchanges and a service area.
This is a modern, fast alternative to the current A42 motorway, providing a trip without traffic back-ups and at a low cost.
Included in the Ministry of Development's 2000-2007 Infrastructure Plan, the Madrid-Toledo Motorway is expected to be extended to the vicinity of Cordoba, passing through Ciudad Real, in a second phase.
The current project includes both the Madrid-Toledo stretch and the toll-free A-40 Castile-La Mancha stretch, the north Toledo by-pass, with a total investment of nearly 440 million euros.
The route begins at the Madrid M-40 by-pass and after running its first 14.5 Km on the current R-5 radial motorway, it connects with Toledo via 57 Km of new construction.
Along its route, the AP-41 passes through the municipalities of Moraleja de Enmedio, Griñon and Serranillos del Valle in the Community of Madrid and the towns of Carranque, Illescas, Yuncos, Numancia de La Sagra, Yuncler, Villaluenga de La Sagra, Cabañas de La Sagra and Olías del Rey in the Community of Castile-La Mancha.
The complete route between Madrid and Toledo is designed with only one stop for conventional payment methods (bank cards and cash) and with no stops if the driver is using the Via-T automated toll collection system, already established on almost all of the motorways in Spain, including the nearby radial motorways of Madrid.
