France is in Europe, New Caledonia is in Oceania. It's not a department, it doesn't have the same currency, it doesn't have the same license plate. Enough to open a thread. And moderators agree, so...

Expressways - Province Sud
Three expressways serve the Grand Nouméa forming two relief roads, one going northwest towards Dumbarton and Paita northwest , the other east towards Mont-Dore. Expressways towards west - voie de dégagement ouest (VDO) are:
_ Expressway 1 - Route du Normandie (E1), commonly known as "voie de dégagement" is a 2x2 long 8 Km open in 1969. It connects the roundabout General Patch, known "rond-point du Pacifique" at the entrance of the city and the autonomous port of Noumea to the Normandy bridge near Mont-Dore. The speed limit is 70 Km/h (apart sections where it's 50 Km/h and 80 Km/h in the quarter Ducos et Rivière-Salée)
_ Expressway 2 - Route du Nord (E2), commonly known as "voie express", is long approximately 20 Km and open in 1979. It starts from the E1 at the entrance of the district Koutio Dumbéa and extends northwest towards Paita Tené, where it joins in the R1. This is a toll road 2x2. The speed limit is 80Km/h between the starting point and the tollgate Koutio, then it's 110 Km/h.
_ Expresswat towards east - voie de dégagement est (VDE) was open in two stages between 2000 and 2001. It extends for 7 Km from the roundabout Rabot, called "rond-point de la Belle-Vie" north-east of Noumea to the roundabout Boulari, serving the quarter with the same name, the real city center of the municipality of Mont-Dore east of Noumea. There's also a toll road managed by Savexpress, a double track for the entire lenght. The speed limit starts from 50 Km/h (with the passage of two roundabouts) to 70 Km/h up the tollgate of Tina and 90 Km/h until the roundabout Week-End serving the quarter La Conception to finish again at 70 Km/h. This way has been built in large part on the embankment of the sea.

Very beautiful place. However I though that French overseas territories looked more 'European', concerning infrastructures and way of life.

Being a territory of France..............'outside of France', the French elements are there (i.e. from the presence and usage of the French language......all the way up to the Renault and PSA Peugeot Citroen cars)

But roads look more African than Europeans: some are dirt roads, other are paved but narrow and with out markings.

There is a difference between rhetorical speech and normal speech. Check in the dictionary. There's a reason why I precisely didn't create this thread.

You can find roads like that in Metropolitan France too. He chose to show these roads, instead of regular paved roads, perhaps because they look more exotic to him. We could also make a thread showing only unpaved roads in Metropolitan France, or country roads without markings, and you would think France is an African country.

No I showed these roads cause these are the roads which you find there on the east coast. Regular paved roads in "european standards" are mostly on the west coast, this I'll show later. Roads are in the pics above are two routes provinciales, so importartant communication roads. The road Thio-Canala showed in the pics, is the only road that links the two cities

Oh my god brisavoine, stop it already. Since New Caledonia is located on the other side of the globe from France, I see no point in posting pictures in the France-thread. That would be pretty confusing. There are seperate threads for Faroe Islands and Greenland, and no one complains about that. And your last post makes no sense, I thought the pictures was very interesting. Feel free to post pictures of dirt roads in the France-thread.

Now, let's start discussing the roads of New Caledonia instead!
