I found one more picture of the Interoceánica (Ruta Fundamental 4) near Robore. This portion of the highway is brand new as you can see. I like that they have rumble strips - I have always been a big fan of them. I wonder what the yellow stripes on the pavement mean.... caution perhaps?

Ruta Fundamental 4 just outside Robore

Excelent work, Juan Paulo. It's true, our national highway system is behind others in Southamerica, the good thing is, today's government is working a lot on expanding and building new highways all around Bolivia. Here's an actual map of our "corredores", which are the main highways that cross our country from north to south, west to east:

Corredores Nacionales

Here´s an acutal map of our motorways:


Gray means it´s paved
Yellow means it´s U/C
Orange means it´s unpaved
Blue means the road is being studied so as to build it later in the future

Motorways? I think they are only single carriageway roads, because what I understand for "motorway" is a grade separated dual carriageway with at least 2+2 lanes...

I stumbled upon this while reading about extradosed bridges in Wikipedia-- three consecutive extradosed bridges (called the Triplets) spanning ravines in central La Paz. Completed in 2010, they also span one of the nation's few expressways, and, incredibly, the route passes under another road which shortly passes under it!

They have flowers!

I would love to go to Bolivia.

Of all the regions I am most interested in it's Central/South America but I can't read or write Spanish. I wish there was a Latin American forum for English speakers.

RN1 La Paz - Oruro

The duplication of RN1 between La Paz and Oruro (204 kilometers) has been inaugurated today. It is arguably the most modern road of Bolivia. Although not a full-standard motorway (there are few if any grade-separated interchanges), it looks like a motorway in rural areas of the Altiplano

In every video and picture that I see of streets/highways cars are always on the white lines and others just not in the middle of the lanes. Are the lanes too wide and that's why cars have too much room or are drivers just that bad?
