Poland (and built by Poland): A4 in Katowice (Murckowska-Mikołowska). Built much before 1970 (in 1970 Mikołowska was interchange rebuilt from the primary roundabout). It wouldn't have ever been a part of the transit motorway, but it is. In this thread (or in this? - I don't remember) is existing one picture of this route, taken in 1970's.

\/ I have added a phrase "and built by Poland"

Interesting video, but wasn't the first section (M7+M1) built already in the 60s? (or that was just a single carriageway?)

Lovely video! Very much 1970s feeling.

Notice the music is Rolling on nThe River and Raindrops Keep Fallin' on My Head. That’s interesting because Hungary was an Eastern European country in that time. But they could have music from West in a video made by the government.

Well it became part of a motorway much later, however our first motorway was a 30 km stretch of E22a (today A4) from Chrzanów to Balice between 1976 and 1983. Quite late to be honest...

Yeah, It was opened in 1964.

The first German motorway now located in Poland was a 2,5 km stretch of A6 at the border, opened on 25th September 1936, as a part of 113 km stretch Berlin - Stettin.

The first motorway in Malaysia is the Federal Highway Route 2 from Kuala Lumpur to Klang. It was constructed between 1974 to 1977 by replacing all at-grade junctions along the former Jalan Kuala Lumpur-Klang (Kuala Lumpur-Klang Road), as well as cycle lanes, which later turned out to become motorcycle lanes. The highway was constructed through the funds by the World Bank. Though the Federal Highway is indeed a motorway (or expressway) with full access control, it is classified as a federal trunk road, as its name suggests.

The first motorway classified as full access expressway in Malaysia is the North-South Expressway (E1 and E2). The first section opened was the Kuala Lumpur-Seremban section, opened in 1977.

North-South Expressway (Northern Route)

I would like to know about the GDR (DDR) and it's motorways

Which motorways where built before 1945 in east germany

and which motorways were built during GDR-times ?

Actually I travelled in the GDR by bus on motorways in 1987, the motorways were bumpy and the cars were few. The building of motorways in the GDR and other countries behind the iron curtain were probably not needed but just a part of the propaganda, to show the west that they also could build motorways.

In Romania it's the A1 between Bucharest and Pitesti, completed in 1972 by the communist regime:

Why not? There was enough traffic on some roads (at least in Yugoslavia).

The Arroyo Seco Parkway in Los Angeles (California State Route 110) was opened in 1940 and is the first freeway in California. Whether that means it's the oldest in the United States remains to be seen but there are some pretty old roads back east.
