[BT] Bhutan/Druk Yul - expressway & roads

Bhutan used to be one of the most isolated countries in the world located at the eastern end of the Himalaya Mountains and bordered to the south, east and west by the Republic of India and to the north by China.

Thimphu Paro 65 1 hr 30 min
Thimphu Phuentsholing 176 6 hrs
Phuentsholing Bagdogra(India) 170 4 hrs
Thimphu Punakha 77 3 hrs

Roads are well maintained and connect to all major sightseeing places. The mountainous terrain and winding road restrict the average speed of vehicles to less than 40 km/hour.

Total: 8,050 km
Paved: 4,991 km
Unpaved: 3,059 km

I'm not sure how many kilometers of the highway was built south of Thimpu. This is a map of possible building process (thick red line)

Interesting, I was under the impression only one road was paved... (from the capital to India).

it's hard to believe that these data on the length of paved roads is accurate (taken from wikipedia). Now I checked with the east to the west, this country extends only about 260 km.

it is unclear what is the plan of building the highway, to the Indian border or is it pretentious ...

"Richtgeschwindigkeit" should be the default system in all EU motorways & expressways & lane indiscipline should be harshly fought! Down with radars on motorways!
