That's about 2 cents per km. Quite cheap. French Autoroutes are much more expensive. It costs like 60 euro's to cross the entire country from Belgium to Spain.

It depends ofcourse on which route you take, but yes its quiet expensive. Although, you have to compare to income also. Moroccans can't ofcourse afford that much.

the most nice highway stretches have to be opened yet, Tangier - Tangier Port ( a lot of viaducts) and Marrakech - Agadir (viaducts and tunnels included) ...

Has the construction started yet on the Marrakech-Agadir motorway? Went there by bus on the current highway back in 2005, I imagine it will be a dream of tunnels and bridges.

Yep, they already started on that stretch, it will take a while to complete. Like you said the area is kind of rough.

At the moment several highway stretches are under construction (speedlimit 120 km/h):

Marrakech - Agadir ( 233 km) A7
Fes - Oujda (linking Mauritania - Morocco - Algeria - Tunisia - Libya - Egypt) - 330 km A9
Oued Rmel - Tanger (about 60 km) A8
El Jadida - Safi (135 km) A6
Also the Casablanca - Rabat stretch, which is 2 x 2 now, is being upgraded to 2 x 3

Also some express-ways are under construction (speedlimit 100 km/h):

Chichaoua - Essaouira (126 km)
Tanger - Tétouan (55 km)
Fnideq - Oued Rmel (18 km)
Inezgane - Tiznit (78km)
