The highway connects San Cugat del Vallés with Manresa,via Terrassa and Sant Vicenç de Castellet. It interconnects various high-capacity sectors such as the AP-7 motorway, the trans-Catalonia highway C-25, the C-58 and the C-55 roadways. In the near future it will link up with the B-40, Barcelona's fourth ring-road.
This Autema highway is also integrated into the Llobregat C-16 sector which connects Barcelona with France, forming part of the European Itinerary known as the E-9.
The highway incorporates equipment which constantly reviews the state of the pavement, balises and signaling, and a network of SOS posts with 24-hour service to provide rapid response to possible accidents or mechanical problems.
