Beautiful country, roads seem OK and not a car to be seen.

Zimbabwe was one of the most developed countries in Africa back in the 1990s, so its road network was also one of the best. Needless to say, the situation has deteriorated since then. Neglect is really going to take its toll on the road conditions in the coming few years.

Roads could last a very long time if there are hardly any cars... Particularly in frost free areas like Zimbabwe.

'Was' being the key word. And without getting too deep into the politics of that beleaguered nation, one can only hope that some kind of reform will occur (as it nearly did, a few years ago), so that Zimbabweans may once again enjoy their developed infrastructure.

Airport Road, Harare

The duplication of Airport Road is almost complete. They call it an expressway but it features no grade-separation. It's a 10 kilometer 2x2 road from Robert Mugabe Road near downtown Harare to the airport.
The Head of State and Government, President Mugabe, took personal interest in the design process to make sure the design of the road would be substantial to the effect that various visitors coming onto it from around the world would feel welcome. The visitors would, on arrival into the country feel that Zimbabwe has moved into the modern world of road standard and quality.
The biggest piece of work is a bridge across a rail yard, which won't be completed soon, according to this June 2013 imagery. The rest is mostly finished though.
