That's how Odessa-Nikolaev [highway], Ukraine, looked year ago:











However, now it looks like this:

Brazilian jungle roads

Brasil has quite a few unpaved main thoroughfares in the Amanzon jungle. Their are not ancient tracks or anything like, but roadways opened in the late 1960s-1970s to facilitate human occupation of vast areas. Some have been paved to 1+1 standards, some haven't.

These are some examples. This routes are the only link for more than 3 million apart from airports. 1850km of those roads are being paved right now under a new government program.

I would say the roads in Montenegro are some of the most dangerous(not the worst) roads in Europe, Basically all highways connecting cities are on high mountains (hence the name "Black Mountain") and quite often there are no barriers to protect you and the drivers in this small country are used to these conditions and often drive at speeds you never dare to do.

In 1995 the BID (Banco Interamericano de Desarrollo) named the Yungas Road the most dangerous road in the world. Maybe with the new road this has changed.

National Route? It's more like a National Stairway to me

Btw, I can't believe no one has mentioned this dangerous road yet.



Yeah, the one from IRT Deadliest Roads.

As someone mentioned earlier the installation of a crash barrier along US 550 would reduce that road to only one lane in width.

Cain is a very small village located in the national park of Picos de Europa in Spain.

They had a road so narrow that one wheel was touching the rock and the other one besides the river precipice (and it is not an exaggeration!!!!, I've gone there several times and always afraid).

The refurbishment of the road used this guide to made it able to drive. It is not possible to cross two cars (there are places to cross but not so many)... but at least you can drive 40 km/h




Look how the road is partially over the river.
And it is the first national park created at Spain (and that was one of the original parts, because later it was enlarged... but that corner is national park since more than one century)

There is one similar road in Italy near Lake Garda... next time I go there I'll take some pics

What it is a pity is that I do not find any photo of the "old" road, just to see how narrow it was.
Just think that in this road only one car can drive... and think in the road without the structure over the river...

One of the worst and narrowest in Europe: Corsica island, road into Forêt de Bonifato (from Calvi).
But impressing nature and landscape!
