In December 2010, Myanmar opened its first motorway, a 580 kilometer long route from the largest city Yangon via the capital Naypyidaw to Mandalay in the center-north. The motorway appears almost completely on Google Earth imagery and seems to have 2x2 lanes with grade-separated interchanges. I haven't been able to find any pictures yet.

The Thai-Myanmar Friendship Bridge crossing the Moei River was constructed in 1997 completing the link between the two countries. At the entrance of the bridge is the immigration office which is open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. The bridge and the fontier have been closed by Burmese government in July 2010.

I have been there in late 2009 for a couple of weeks. that time I was not so interested in a road infrastructure. all I remember the trip from Yangon to Taunggyi (via Nay Pyi Taw) took several hours. that time there were only some stetches of dual carrigeway close to the capital. in capital itself roads were fantstic, completely different from the rest of country, which at least half of the country is completely imapassable by car (only air/river). the reality looks slightly different than the pictures taken at yangon downtown.

Any road signs or road numbering system in the country?

Interesting to see that not only have they kept the imperial system, they use furlongs on their road signs as well. In other imperial countries, like the US, the furlong has long been a deprecated unit (except in horse racing) and a distance of 2 furlongs would instead be shown as "1/4 mile" on a road sign.

USA, Liberia and Burma are the only remaining countries not using SI. I understand America being stubborn, and Liberia copying America, but I don't understand Myanmar.

According to Google Maps there is a road numbering system, but I've never seen a sign with a road number. I don't even know what their road numbering shields look like. It's possibly more like an administrative system, considering most roads remain unpaved. Decades of isolation didn't bring Myanmar any good, in the 1940's it was expected that Myanmar would become one of the most prosperous nations in southeast Asia.

Dawei
It's a city in southeastern Myanmar and is capital of Tanintharyi Region, situated about 614.3 km (381.7 mi) south of Yangon on the northern bank of the Dawei River. Only recently Dawei was connected to the rest of Myanmar by road and rail. In November 2010, the Myanmar Port Authority signed a USD $8.6 billion deal with Italian-Thai Development to develop a deep sea port at Dawei. This development would become Myanmar's first Special Economic Zone, which includes plans to develop a 250 square kilometres (97 sq mi) industrial estate, with sea, land (railway and road) infrastructure links to Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam, as well as a gas pipeline to Thailand’s Kanchanaburi Province and commercial and residential developments.
