Default Santander to Burgos - route

Reminded to post by 'petrol stations' enquiry by Steve Burrows.

When AA provided route in previous years there was a 'suitable for caravans'
option which always reccomended going via Bilbao, I believe to avoid
mountain roads.
All route planning sites now reccomend going directly south - are there new
roads ?
Any knowledge would be much appreciated.
Many thanks,

RGL

Looking at the new 2005 Michelin road map(Pub-Feb 2005), it shows a new
partially completed motorway dropping down South from Torrelavega, it looks
complete as far as Molledo and seems to join the N611 at that point. The
motorway is shown as under construction from Molledo to Reinosa at which the
N611 joins again, the motorway looks complete then to Aquilar. From there
the N627 takes you in the direction of Burgos.
The new motorway seems to avoid the N623 which has several high passes on
it.
I have never driven this route so I have no direct experience.
Hope this helps
Regards
Tom

Just remembered , you could try the searching for the RACE (RAC Espana) site
for more info, probably some knowledge of Spanish required.
