A motorway has at least two lanes on each direction plus an emergency lane, they also have to have a separator. Some of those pictures from Colombia are just roads, not freeways/motorways. The real Colobian motorways are very cool nontheless!

yeah! i was in new zealand a year ago, and i was driving on 'highway'1. there where a lot of places whith long small bridges where the traffic of the other direction meets you in the farth and where (als klap op de vuurpijl) trains can come from both directions on the same lane. so those long and narry bridges are very scary to drive over. i think the name 'highway' is not the best one. around auckland there are some highway-hotspots! !

A highway is ''a main public road, especially one connecting towns and cities''.

A highway can be a freeway, two lane road, or even a gravel or dirt road. A highway can take on many forms. ie: Alaska Highway. Trans Canada Highway, Pacific Highway etc.

The highway you were refering to with the 1 lane bridges with the railway in the middle is on Highway 6 down the remote westcoast of the south island.

i think you're right! it was on every bridge over there on the west coast of the south island and more places. highway one is on the east side of the island.
in europe it's normal to speak about a highway if it's a motorway/ autosnelweg/autobahn/autostrada/autopista/autoroute. broad roads with 2x2 or more than 2x2 lanes.

Typically this is what you'll see for Ontario(Canada) what you find here is pretty similar to the rest of Canada also.

Incredible!
Thanks Thomas I.

Totalitarian states are always interesting the way they build for a fantasy, not reality.
