I'd use the through route as 'straight'. In this case A1 would go straight, while any route coming from A1L would end here.

Zagreb - Belgrade - Thessaloniki - Athens? It may not be the longest route, but it's surely somewhat more than 1000 km.

at eastern entrance to Beograd there is totso, too.
on the other side, Zagreb is bad place to start that route; you can make Ljubljana - Beograd with no totsos.

Rosenheim-Innsbruck-Verona --merger at Modena and onto Naples-Reggio Calabria and it seems to me that when you keep on going you'll end up going northbound along the Adriatic Coast - inland - Med-Coast SS18- parallel northbound along the A3- and another spin-off...

In other words - starting at Rosenheim you'll end up going round in circles in southern Italy...

Actually, that lane takes you to the northern Bologna bypass and then probably to Bari.

Actually, when the Belgrade beltway will be finished, the straight route coming from the Razcep Malence near Ljubljana will continue as the beltway (Dobanovci interchange) and again will be continued into the Belgrade-Niš motorway at the future Beli Potok (?) interchange.
In conclusion, straight from Ljubljana to Thessaloniki.

Most roundabouts.

Remember the Top Gear police challenge, where James's bright idea to catch the criminal is to wait for him to come around again? Richard remarks it might work on the M25.

In Australia you could start at the M80 Ring Road / M31 Hume Fwy interchange north of Melbourne and travel north along the Hume all the way into Sydney. In Sydney, M5, under the airport, Eastern Distributor, Harbour Tunnel (too bad miss the bridge), M2 Hills Mwy, M7 Westland and bends back on itself to meet the M31/M7 interchange south western Sydney.

It would be freeway all the way, no exits.... hope I hadn't missed anything.

I consider roundabouts as if they were intersections. If there is a clear main route, then that is the 'straight' route. If not, any route ends there.

Not the Z-40 around Zaragoza. There is a cloverleaf at the northeast corner that makes any route on the ringroad to end at the AP-7 interchange or in Oloron-Ste. Marie (France) (The later ends after a few roundabouts). In addition, the way the interchange at the southwest corner is signed makes A-2 the through route, thus causing the route from the AP-7 to continue to the Cristo Rey circle in Madrid instead of looping back and head to Oloron.

this is not thread about the future, so when-will-be stuff doesn't count.

We can count them if we know these projects are realistic...

A competing concept is an endless chain of T-junctions. The larger the roundabout is the more obvious this interpretation is.

Not sure if this counts but this is the largest you can get on the South Island.

It's 841 km between Picton and Gore with the route purely on SH 1. I tried Invercargill but Google says to turn off the main road and head down a country road that is quicker.

If one stays on SH 1 through Gore to get to Invercargill, it adds another 65 km to the trip making it a total of 906 km between Picton and Invercargill on SH 1.

It's 1288km, your route involved two turns at Caserta and Salerno.
