The government is constructing a new luxurious capital called Oyala in continental Equatorial Guinea. This motorway (approximately 205 km) will run near it.

Interesting that the toll station is labeled "PEAGE" and not "PEAJE".

Equatorial Guinea is multi-lingual. Spanish, French and Portuguese are official languages. There are very few government website, but the most prominent one starts in French.

Interesting.

Motorway Bata-Mongomo. This is supposedly the stretch built by Ecocsa. However, apparently they have introduced Spanish styled signs. They are just exactly the same than the Spanish standard (except for the lack of color rectangles with the number of the road).

Nice mixture. Signage is Spanish, but road design is clearly not.

Me lo puedes explicar?, no entiendo muy bien a qué te refieres. Si lo puedes hacer en español, mucho mejor.

La señalización es española, pero el diseño de la carretera no (nunca he visto esos cambios de sentido al mismo nivel en España).

Si no recuerdo mal, en el antiguo tramo desdoblado de la N-I en el Condado de Treviño, sino cambios de sentido así, había cruces similares al mismo nivel. Otro lugar en el que se da una situación similar es en la actual M-404 (acceso norte a Aranjuez desde la A-4), puesto que era la antigua N-IV desdoblada, con cambios de sentido y cruces al mismo nivel aprovechando la mediana. En el caso de la M-305 poco a poco se va perdiendo la configuración procedente de la antigua nacional desdoblada ya que las nuevas urbanizaciones al norte de Aranjuez van incorporando nuevas glorietas y una tipología de carretera más acorde con los estándares actuales.

----

If I am not wrong, along the old Spanish N-I dual carriageway in the Condado de Treviño (province of Burgos), if not exactly in the same way, there were at-grade intersections. Another place where a similar designed was applied was the current M-305 (Northern access to Aranjuez from the A-4 motorway in Madrid), as it was part of the former dual carriageway N-IV, with U-turns and at-grade intersections in the central reservation. In the case the M-305, that design is disappearing as the new urban developments in Northern Aranjuez are adding new roundabouts and a new design closer to the current standard.

M-305 old fashioned U-turn, today blocked.

It is pretty weird the signage standard in Equatorial Guinea, as they have moved from the former French standard to the current Spanish one. I don't know why.

Sincerely me too, but now is in all the country. It seems like the spanish is the new rule nowadays, not only on the roadds, but in every area. For example UNGE is full of spanish lecturers
