A provincial route may serve alot of people but not be nationally important.

Hi Topwatch! While this is a provincial road (County of Guayaquil and Province of Guayas), it is a main freeway connecting the city of Guayaquil (Ecuador's most populated city) with the nearby town of Samborondón (the county seat of a different county within the Province of Guayas). There is significant new urban development in this area so the freeway was planned to accommodate future urban growth. As of the car going the wrong way on the service road I really don't know. We drive on the right side of the road. My guess is that the picture was taken right before the freeway officially opened (a couple of years ago) when it was not fully operational and/or opened to the public yet.

I noticed the signage in Latin-America is almost identical in all countries, except for Chile, which has a more sophisticated, European kind of signage.

Most countries in Latin-America have comprehensive signage standards - usually based on USA DOT standards (except Chile which is based on European standard). However, these standards are not implemented due to lack of funding. I have noticed a trend to start signing roads with their numbers and to use proper directional vertical and horizontal signage on major cities and along major national roads. If you are interested in the standards, here are a few. Just look for the chapters on "Señales Verticales" and "Señales Horizontales" or "Señalización Vertical" and "Señalización Horizontal" for vertical and horizontal signage, respectively.

Colombia - Manual of Road Signage

Ecuador - Technical Requirements for Road Signage Part 1

Peru - Manual of Traffic Control Devices for Roads and Highways

Bolivia - Highway Manual Volume III

Chile - Manual of Transit Signage - Chapter 2: Vertical Signage

Some links might take a little while to download because they are large PDF files. Let me know if any of the links do not work

This highway runs north-south (parallel to the eastern Andes range) along the westernmost end of the Amazon basin. It connects all Provincial Capitals in the Amazon Region of Ecuador. The highway was recently paved and/or re-paved and signed to meet current Ecuadorian Road Standards. It is also part of the "Via Marginal de la Selva", a network of multi-national roads similar to the Panamerican Highway, that circles around the Amazon basin.
