The greater LA area does have what is considered to be the greatest freeway network in terms of scale. But, I would have to disagree with Greater Toronto. The MacDonald-Cartier Fwy [401] does not constitute a whole frwy system...Toronto needs many more miles of fwy in order to be brought to the stage of even considering it being in the same category. As for the Texan cities...they are much closer. In Europe, Madrid has really done an excellent job...following it's colonial planning and ring roads/beltways every few miles..radiating out from the center....you at a map and you'll see what I mean. And if I am not mistaken they are adding more fwys to their system. In Canada, Montreal's Autoroutes are much larger scale wise...whereas Vancouver's are ridiculous. Toronto's are eye-openers..because they are big...and do not forget they include the distributor and service roadways.

Photos of D8 motorway u/c passing Ore mountains in Czechia (route Prague-Dresden-Berlin), to be opened this December, photos made this summer.
There will be many bridges, tunnels and biocorridors on this route.

Poland is very interesting, i've been there twice. But i still don't see the use of putting a destination on a sign, which is the last town on a road. You see very small places along the German border signposted for hundreds of kilometers away.

Every region's highway photo threads (links)

I'm trying to put all of the official "highway photos" threads from all of the different subforums around SSC into one thread.

India Highways Photos - India Subforum
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=298320

African Highways/Expressways - SSC Africa
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=342101


You get the picture. I'll fill in more of this within the coming days.
