Very well done everyone; I'm happy this topic has gotton this many replies!

Those North Korean Motorways are amazing and also empty; that's because North Korea owns everything including the cars I heard. I've seen images of North Korea; it's a interesting country...everyone similes...actually your forced to smile infront of cameras and you have to dress "properly". It's very erry and empty especially in the capital city where 2 MILLION people live!

Some more pics from India. These are just a fraction of the highways built/uc in India.










[IMG]ttp://images.fotopic.net/?id=2406811&outx=600&oq=0&original=1&noresize=1&nostamp=1[/IMG]















































Not exactly highways, state highways, district and country roads.















A map showing India's major highways.

Nice pics of Indian motorways & expressways. Gives a good impression of the per capita car ownership in India. 1 billion inhabbitants and virtually no traffic.

^ Some of the stretches are incomplete,maybe that's why the traffic is so less. Another reaso maybe that travelling in cars from city to city has still to catch up in India. Most of the families prefer India's vast railway network. The car sales are not bad though. Last year, over 1 million cars were sold.

Here are some pics of Atlanta freeways.

The double striped lanes on the left are HOV (High Occupancy Vehicle) lanes, which only allow for vehicles with 2 or more people, motorcycles, and busses. This helps to encourage car pooling which in turn will (theoretically) reduce traffic. The freeway posted here is called the Downtown Connector, and is a merge of I-75 and I-85.



This is Georgia 400, a state freeway that connects many of Atlanta's more affluent suburbs to the city. It has less lanes than most Atlanta freeways, but the traffic is usually pretty heavy to horendous, so don't let these weekend pictures decieve you. Also, through a good stretch of this freeway, the MARTA (metro atlanta rapid transit association) trains run through the middle of it. I like racing them....


Here, GA400 tunnels beneath the Atlanta Financial Center building.




Heading north into the wealthy suburbs of Dunwoody, Alpharetta, and Roswell...

Northwest of the city on I-75.


These message signs are scattered throughout the city and metro area, they are used to alert drivers of accidents/heavy traffic ahead, they are also used during other emergency situations (On 9/11 they read something like: "National Emergency! Atlanta Airport Closed!".


Cruising along in an HOV Lane.



You can view plenty of Metro Atlanta webcam photo's at the Georgia DOT website Georgia-Navigator

Some polish A4 (photos from march --> Gliwice-Katowice section):





















Coal mine




Sosnica junction - in the near future it will be one of the biggest and the most important junctions on polish highways (A1 - Gdańsk-Southern Europe and A4 - Western-Eastern Europe)


And a local street which leads from the A4 highway to my hometown - Gliwice:
