No; these are the Salt Ranges. Your going from 100 down to at least down to 20 in some cases but many didn't bother to listen. Many have died on this piece of the M2.

Not sure why they made it like that; your technically going up a steep hill which lasts for a while.

roads are good in pakistan but empty. But that will change in the future of course, so it is a good investment for the future.

Empty yes; some were taken in the middle of nowhere and some are toll routes which were undercontruction.

Still traffic is low but it should increase overtime; people will have to start using it to get from one part of the city to another.

The A1(M) in Cambridgeshire


The M60 Manchester Orbital motorway




The A13 in East London


The M5 near Birmingham


The M40 motorway


The M62 near Wakefield


(Underneath) The M6 Thelwall Viaduct


The M6 Toll, approaching a toll booth


The M8, between Glasgow and Edinburgh


The M3 motorway, Hampshire


What do you think of British highways?
