Question: Highway/expressway/motorway/roadway with most number of lanes in existence

I'm sorry if this has been posted but out of curiosity, different pages on the internet give different results.

Some say 401 in Canada. Others say I75 in Atlanta, Georgia while another said another said Interstate 5 (with its 21 lanes)

So what is it?

Thanks

The 401 in Toronto, at least for a long stretch, the others may be wider for not very long

The problem is definition. Many locations that top the lists are just approaches to interchanges.

Ah okay.

So there's no clear consensus yet (or some guinness book of world records entry that has an official listing for such)?

Near Madrid (eastern zone) there is a point where M-45 and M-50 have a common part. That makes that for two or three kilometres there are 6 lanes. Later it is 3+3 (if I am not wrong) and... the central 3 is considered M-50 and exterior 3 lanes are M-45

There are several freeways in the United States that exceed 18 lanes.
