Isn't that because it used to be pretty much closed country for foreigners? (which also weren't allowed to drive).

Border with Tunisia/La frontiere avec la Tunisie
These are signs from Tunisia. First ones from the road between Medenine and border of Lybia. Last one from the border of Tunisia and Lybia on the Tunisian side.

It was part of politics of Gadhafi. Arabian is the official language of Libya and it wasn't allowed to use any other language anywhere. So it wasn't allowed to use Latin script also.

If you wanted to travel to Libya you had to translate your whole passport to Arabian by the official translator pointed out by Libyan embassy.
International driving licence was probably ok to use as it is in Arabian also.

You needed Lybian plates sticked over yours too. I think all those signs will be replaced when (if) the country will open to tourism.

This isn't so odd. the only odd thing about it is that the reference language is arabic. French and English speaking countries have the same policy for a long time.

In most Arab countries (maybe except the francophone countries), bilingual signs are only put up in the main cities. Go to the countryside and only Arabic is used.

Has the civil war led to (severe) damage to roads in Lybia ?
Have constructionworks stopped then and have some/all works proceeded yet ?

There weren't really many construction works going on, though the Libyan forumers would know better than myself.

To my knowledge the roads haven't been damaged much in the civil war. It's a huge country with low population and a decent existing road network so we most likely won't see much new road construction go on.

Just before the troubles broke out, there was news about a cross-country motorway from Tunisia to Egypt.

I remember that. Itay was supposed to help Libya make it. It was also a Benghazi-Trablus (Tripoli)-Tunis TGV project.

Yes, it was part of that infamous and shameful friendship pact between Berlusconi and Gheddafi.
The African dictator wanted those project as "war riparation" for the crimes committed 70 years ago by fascist oppressors in the Italian colony.
Berlusconi was a Gheddafi ass licker just because of oil interests. Berlusconi government (that included Lega Nord) was strongly against imigration so they made an agreement to Gheddafi to send back to Lybia African immigrants who tried to flee to Italy by boat. So, those poor people ofter political asylum seeker from war-torn African regions were abandoned in the desert and let die.
And when Gheddafi went to Rome.and said he wanted to islamize Europe nobody said nothing. Italy was the only Western country whose autorities took part for the celebration of the 40 years of Gheddafi rule.

Salini Impregilo Group to Construct First Section Of Libyan Coastal Motorway for a total value Of €963 Million.

Milan, August 12, 2013 - The Salini Impregilo Group, leader of a consortium of Italian companies including “La Società Italiana per CONDOTTE d’Acqua” “Impresa Pizzarotti & C.”and “Cooperativa Muratori & Cementisti - C.M.C” will construct the first section of the new Libyan coastal motorway for a total value of approximately €963 million. The Salini Impregilo Group has a 58% share in the contract, while the project will create 2,000 jobs.

The contract, financed by the Italian government, includes a performance bond of 2% and an advance of 15% equivalent to €145 million. This Italian investment and the wider contribution of Italian industrial expertise will play a key role in relaunching the economy and driving employment.

The new motorway will run across Libya for 1,700 kilometres, from the Tunisian border to the Egyptian border, and will be funded by the Italian government within the scope of the Friendship, Partnership and Cooperation Agreement signed with the Libyan government on 30 August 2008 in Benghazi.

The first section of the coastal motorway, to be constructed by the Salini Impregilo Group, will run for approximately 400 kilometres from the city of Marj to Emsaad, on the Egyptian border.
The most significant parts of the project include the construction of 12 bridges of 2.2 kilometres in length, 8 service areas and 6 parking areas.

Lybia and Albania are possibly the only other countries (beside San Marino and Vatican for obvious reasons) to use Italian-style signage. However Lybia still uses yellow edge lines, that aren't used in Italy since 1993. Maybe colonial or post-colonial influence (Italy had strong bounds with Lybia well after its formal independence, until Gheddafi expelled all Italians citizens in 1970).
