In Australia, the highest road would probably be Alpine Way between Thredbo and Khancoban in New South Wales as it is close to Mount Kosciusko, which is Australia's highest peak at 2228m above sea level.

As for the highest point for any motorway, it may possibly be the M1 South Eastern Freeway around Crafers in the Adelaide Hills, South Australia which is at about 300m above sea level. However, the A32 Great Western Highway at Katoomba has a limited access section with a grade separated interchange on the western edges, and it is about 1000m above sea level.
I like people, places... and things.

The Finnish motorways run through lowlands. The highest 'peak' is located on 9/E63 at the southern end of the Jyväskylä south approach. The elevation is 157 meters.


The second highest spot, 152 meters, is located on 3/E12 at Tampere ring:

In Serbia, highest point on motorways would be on A1 about 5km before SRB/MK border at 459m.
For national roads, highest point is Jaram Pass (1788m) on Kopaonik Mountain, between Brzeće and Kopaonik ski resort, road R218a (old mark).
