I use to think Los Angeles was the capital of freeway overpasses; once again China takes takes over the record. Good show...

Some UK motorways:

M6, Birmingham. "Spaghetti Junction"


M1, just south of Leeds


M25, London Ring Road (Europe's busiest motorway)


M48, Old Severn Bridge linking England (left) and Wales (right)


M62, crossing moorland in West Yorkshire. This stretch of motorway is the highest in the UK (372m above sea level)

I heard road and motorway constructins are going crazy fast in China, they even don't update maps in time


anyway some highways and roads from Lithuania


total length of roads with official motorway status is only 417km but it's quite enough for a country of this size and amount of traffic

A2













A12/E77





A11 (the white car on the left - mine - if cops would catch me in this location I'd have problems )




A1

^The rural interstates there look a lot like rural interstates here in the US, only you have those little white things sticking out of the ground, we don't.

Nice posts. Those Lithuanian motorways look nice cruising through the green, rolling countryside.

China will soon be a driver's paradise. It's such a huge country, and the motorway possibilities are endless.

A few Stockholm highway/motorway shots (by me )

Essingeleden (E4/E20 bypassing Stockholm's inner city) Sweden's widest freeway.





Nynäsvägen Stockholm<->southern 'burbs

That first one looks crazy; are those 5 "roundabouts" in one huge circle?

I understood the busiest section doent even get up to the 200000 v/p/d mark.
The busiest section in Europe is well over the 200000 v/p/d.

That is insane I've looked at it many times but everytime I do I'm amazed at it!

If I had to go through that I'd close my eyes, drive straight and hope for the best!

By the way what city is that?
Foreigners can't drive in China... only Chinese citizens. BTW, that highway through Shanghai is one of the coolest stretches of road I've ever been on. It was like an elevated highway through Manhattan. There were huge skyscrapers on both sides of it for miles!!

What about an outsider from rural China?
