Running South-North from the interior of the Iberian Peninsula, the layoutof the former is defined by the N-630 Ruta de la Plata National Highway(Gijón-Sevilla) and parallel to this, the A-66 and AP-66 motorways(Benavente-Gijón and León-Campomanes, respectively), which facilitate ease ofmovement from the south of the peninsula: Madrid, towns and communities alongthe Ruta de la Plata and other road links.

The A-66 motorway is currently being developed along the entire 800 kmroute between Gijón and Seville, of which, nowaday, more than one third is inservice, and the rest is under construction.

The second majorroad link, which runs East-West along the entire Cantabrian Coastline,is defined by the N-634 National Highway (Irún-Santiago de Compostela), whichin Asturias forks along the coast via the N-632 (Ribadesella-Canero),known as the Carretera de la Costa (Coastal Highway), thus enabling one toeither head inland or drive right alongside the sea. This corridor, runningparallel to the Cantabrian Sea, is now practically doubled up in the East fromthe French border to Gijón by the Cantabrian Motorway and Dual Carriageway(AP-8and A-8), which is presently in diverse stages of construction towards the Westfrom the centre of the Principality of Asturias to Galicia.

Gijón, Oviedo and Avilés are just a few minutesaway from one another, linked by the motorway popularly known as the"Y", which connects up the A-8 with the A-66. The new dualcarriageways, the A-64 (Villaviciosa-Oviedo) and the A-63 (Oviedo-Grado-Salas),as well as the AS-1 Mining Valleys Dual Carriageway (Gijón-Mieres) offer a newlayout of major roads within the region that, alongside the fully renovatednetwork of regional roads, connect Gijón with great ease to the rest ofthe Boroughs and Shires of the Autonomous Community of the Principality ofAsturias.
