Motorway openings around the world

Let's post every motorway/freeway- and expressway opening that happens in the world in this thread. But keep it simple, just basic information, no pictures please (you can see them in their respective threads).

So, yesterday (UTC) they opened the Polish A2 motorway between Nowy Tomyśl and the German border, as well as a motorway in Bosnia and Herzegovina/Republic of Srpska between Banja Luka and the Croatian border.

*****

rules:

No photos
No discussion

Openings to be reported in this thread;

* full standard motorways or local equivalent
* two-lane expressways that are part of the main network (i.e. droga ekspresowa, supercarreteras or Japanese two-lane expressways)
* second carriageway openings
* motorway-standard roads not part of the main network (i.e. Voie express, Gelbe Autobahn, Superstrada, etc.)

If you want to discuss opening events, click the multi-quote button next to the regular quote button and post it in the revelant thread.

Posting historic pictures of old motorways and opening dates of very recent ones does not seem very similar to me.
