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!
Thank you, at least somebody that appreciates my work

Thio and Canala are not "cities".

This is Thio:


And this is Canala (to the left):


I don't think you understand the context of ultra-low density in New Caledonia. It's like two small settlements in the Pyrénées mountains. You can also find roads like that in the Pyrénées when traffic doesn't justify paving them, especially in a harsh environment.

We can also see on this map that you picked precisely a backcountry roads. Not exactly typical of the average roads in New Caledonia where most people drive.

I understand it very well, it's maybe you that you don't understand if you comparate New Caledonia to Europe.
1) We are speaking of an island in which the density is 13 inhabitants/Km with a population of 256.000 inhabitants, in which 160.000 inhabitants live in Noumea and suburbs (Koné, the capital of Province Nord has 6.000 inhabitants). Being this thread is "New Caledonia roads" and not "Noumea roads" I think we can also speak of roads outside the capital city (and I repeat myself, those showed in pics were routes provinciales, not countryside road to a farm).
2) Give me time to post also pics of other roads, I also have a life...if you care so much to show 2x2 expressways, post pics instead to complain always

Let's say that New Caledonia is more considered as a small country within a larger one.

But as Brisavoine said, this flag is politically charged. The majority of New Caledonia's inhabitants actually don't recognize themselves into this new flag drawn by independantists who are a minority. That's why both caledonian and french flags have to be represented because they symbolize both peoples. There is two official flags, not one, and it's not for nothing :p .
BTW I lived there for almost 7 years.

How's the safety and security in New Caledonia? Crime rate? Safe to drive or walk at night? Stuff like that

P.S.
I'm kinda surprised Air France doesn't fly to this place (seems odd)

From travel.state.gov, the site of the US Department of State for international travels:

Quote:
CRIME: The crime rate in New Caledonia is low; however, petty crime such as pick pocketing and purse-snatching does occur. Fights and assaults sometimes occur outside discotheques and bars, especially over weekends and holidays and at closing time.
Do not buy counterfeit and pirated goods, even if they are widely available. Not only are the bootlegs illegal in the United States, you may be breaking local law too.
The import or possession of counterfeit items is a crime in New Caledonia and even having any such items in your baggage on arrival can lead to their seizure and serious fines for the person involved.
Quote:
TRAFFIC SAFETY AND ROAD CONDITIONS: Roads are generally well maintained except in remote areas. Animals and unwary pedestrians walking in the road make night driving on unlit secondary roads hazardous.
