No, in the UK its a motorway.

Australia has the longest strech of dead striaght railway track in the world across the Nullarbor plain. I don't know the length of it though. The straight hwy pic you saw there is probably the Eyre Hwy, which also traverses the Nullarbor Plain.

The longest road train ever was over 1km in length, which is longer than a lot of trains that run on rail.

free limited acces highway is a generic term for a road that has limited acces and no toll.
