Together with the A51 (Milan east ring road), the A58 (Milan external east ring road) and the A52 (the northern ring road of Milan), it is the largest system of ring roads around a city, for a total length greater than 100 km. By adding the urban sections of A1 and A4, which runs parallel to the northern ring road by connecting A51 and A50, to the three ring roads, a system of urban motorways is obtained that totally surrounds the city. The traffic flow that affects this stretch of highway is around 250,000 daily transits.[2]
