This is not a single freeway, but rather several separate freeways side by side. This is not a unique case in Europe. In Paris, for example, there are freeways side by side to the north and south of Central Paris.

Here is the A6 freeway in the southern suburbs of Paris (14 lanes plus 4 emergency lanes):


Another section of the A6 freeway, closer to Central Paris (17 lanes plus 2 emergency lanes):


Here is the A1 freeway in the northern suburbs of Paris (14 lanes plus 2 emergency lanes):


Another section of the A1 freeway, near CDG Airport (15 lanes plus 4 emergency lanes):


By the way, a higher number of lanes doesn't necessarily mean higher traffic. The 8 lanes Périphérique, for instance, handles more traffic than the 14 lanes A1 freeway.

Moscow from there with same zoom. Unfortunately this zoom is not enough to see all city. So there is only within MKAD.
A bit outdated. Somewhere from 2003.

Oh lol, you're here too?

It'll be a little harder here than in the Moscow battle but could compete with Toronto, at least by the NUMBER of freeways.

Certainly not lol! It's me using wrong words I guess! I meant you're so far away, never thought of Iberians, especially the Portuguese knowing 'anything' about that area. But I've noticed a huge increase of the Portuguese car plates 'outside of your peninsula'! If it means anything, I think it does. Must be hard for you to play tourists in Europe, being on the edge of it!

I've been in Ljubljana and I got there by train (doing an interrail ).

I've allways had my vacations out of portugal... traveling through europe, so I can't say I'm a typical portuguese in that.
But with nowadays cheap plane travels, portugal is not farther away than any other european country.

This one's nice, just those roadworks (look kinda nice though ) and driving on the left. When was the last part of the motorway(s) to enclose the Ring finished? I've got an opinion it's rather new.

True, Map24 could be 'a little' more updated in 'New Europe' !

But I'm using it because it's VERY easy to use it. In case you haven't tried it yet, I strongly recommend it.

I see though that it's got a lot more appropriate travel times! On Map24 looks like they are using 60 - 70 km/h speed on motorways although it says 70 miles/h lol...
