Well, French is as well official, due to political and regional influence for sure, even if it was a Spanish colony.

But exactly, because of this, why did they use the French standard before? It was exactly the same Spanish speaking country before and now. I was just curious about the change.

French signage standard is pretty common in many French former colonies in Africa (Morocco, Argeria...), while Spanish standard is not used in any other country. Well, actually Chile now has a signage design really close to the Spanish model, probably due to the last motorways built by Spanish companies there during the last years.

Imagino que Guinea habrá adoptado la señalización española. Esos cambios de sentido son muy frecuentes en Brasil, si te pasas por el hilo brasileño del foro verás muchos.

I guess Guinea has adopted Spanish signage style. These U-turns are very common in Brazil, you'll see a lot of them in the Brazilian topic.

Google Earth has released new base imagery of the world, taken by Landsat 8. In some areas of the world, this is the first cloud-free imagery ever incorporated in Google Earth, in particular along the equator and in mountain ranges.

Although the imagery has a very low resolution, it reveals some new developments, in this case in mainland Equatorial Guinea. The east-west motorway discussed earlier is visible across the country, to the Gabon border. They also appeared to have built a northeast branch to the Cameroon border.



Two new cities are built in the jungle, with an airport in between. These cities are approximately 50 kilometers apart.


Zoomed in at the airport area, there is also a full cloverleaf to the northeast branch.

Some 'street view' from AP-1 between Ebebiyin and Mengomeyen. A bit of Spain in the tropics.

Although I feel some British flavor in the roundabout sign, and French in the speed limit sign depending on weather conditions.

It's weird. It's like looking at Spanish signage, but without the messy "boxes" with the road numbers in different colours. Also, they seem to use two different typefaces (Transport heavy and Transport light?).

At least, that AP-1 is not tolled [apparently]
