G30 in Xinjiang is not fully up to motorway standards everywhere.

Also, the Ambassador Bridge and surroundings in Windsor are not motorways, but city streets. Copenhagen - Hamburg via the Fehmarnbelt Ferry is also not a motorway link.

One can go entirely by motorway, via Little Belt, Great Belt and Oresund bridges. Lenght will be much longer, but it would be a disputable record as it's not the shorther route between the two points.

That route uses the EX-100 between Badajoz and Cáceres (in Extremadura, Spain), which is not a motorway but a regional (ex-national) 1+1 road.

If you want to use only motorways, you should take the A-5 to Mérida and then the A-66 to Cáceres. This route is 43 km longer, though.

In a few years I imagine the furthest would be Halifax - Tijuana, which would be over 6,000 km. You can do that trip on all motorways today, just have to go via I-95, which would be rather indirect.. By 2020 that trip will be 100% motorway on the most direct route, via the new Detroit Bridge and the completed A-85 in Quebec. Mind you by 2020 China may have its cross Continental motorway done all the way to Europe... so who really knows.

They will just direct a hydroelectric dam to flood Kazakhstan, then send dredgers to build Chinese islands on top

My question was a bit different from that thread... Like the interest here would be the most direct distance between the two points travelled, instead of being the on-road distanc

This is something I'd look forward to, gonna happen faster than the Chinese plan

Missing sections are: Serbia's A-4 from Nish to Bulgaria, Bulgaria's Kalotina (A7), Sofia's "Northern Speed Tangent" Turkey's Edirne to the border, Turkey's projected Gerede-Gurbulak Motorway, Iran's Tabriz-Bazargan, Tehran's Southern Bypass Freeway, and Qom-Mashhad Freeway

Hopefully all completed by 2025

Even if we count toll plazas (that have "motorway ends" signs), there is still E4 through Kronoberg. It is not (yet) a full motorway, so even Stockholm is not connected in the Central European motorway network.

You can go through highways ON-405-I-190 and go around Erie Lake, or QEW-I-190, Or you can go through Sarnia Highways ON-402-I-94

This 26 km gap?



According to Swedish Wikipedia, the section will be upgraded to motorway status in 2017~2020

no because there is gap in Germany between Puttgarden port and A1 which begins in Heiligenhafen. you must go around via Danish bridges.
