well those would not function at all if there was even a semblance of traffic on those roads.

Yangon - Mandalay Expressway

The Yangon - Mandalay Expressway is known for the extreme number of traffic deaths on it.
109 killed, nearly 800 injured in highway traffic accidents in Myanmar in 11 months

A total of 109 people were killed and about 800 people injured in traffic accidents on Myanmar's Yangon-Mandalay highway in 11 months this year, local media The Voice reported Sunday.
Full report: http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/20..._136797243.htm

In 2009-2015 over 600 deaths occurred on the expressway.

Expressways are normally the safest road type, due to separated traffic and no cross traffic. In the Netherlands, over 70 billion kilometers are driven on the 2400 kilometer motorway network, resulting in circa 35 deaths per year. If you compare that to Myanmar, where there is only a fraction of the traffic, the fatality rate is beyond absurd.

Well you can already see how "safe" highways are in Myanmar is:







Fairly narrow and uneven concrete roads, very sharp curves knowing that the speed limit is 100 km/h (seen in the video). And look at those creepy curbs in the median. Add this to the Burmese driving style, I'm pretty sure that accident rate is accountable (I would not even call this as a highway nor expressway by looking into their geometrics)
