Chile: Route CH-68 (Santiago de Chile-Valparaíso)




Chile Route 68 (Ruta 68) is a highway in central Chile. It runs 110.21 km (68.48 mi) from Santiago to Valparaíso. It begins at the western terminus of Avenida Libertador General Bernardo O'Higgins. In its first kilometers the highway is straight and has three lanes in each direction. Shortly after its junction with Vespucio Norte Express, Route 68 narrows to two lanes in each direction. After this, the highway meets Costanera Norte and crosses the Mapocho River. After some kilometers, Route 68 passes through the tunnels Lo Prado I and Lo Prado II, with lengths of 2,808 m (9,213 ft) and 2,823 m (9,262 ft) respectively, which are built through the Chilean Coastal Range. Going westward, Route 68 descends into the Curacaví Valley and bypasses the small city of the same name. After this, the highway is carried by another pair of tunnels side by side, which straddle the border between Santiago Metropolitan Region and Valparaíso Region and are called Zapata I and Zapata II. After leaving the tunnels, the highway continues northwest through the Casablanca Valley and borders the city of Casablanca. The highway enters the Lago Peñuelas National Reserve before continuing into Placilla de Peñuelas. Just north of Placilla, Route 68 intersects with the Acceso Sur a Valparaíso, formerly known as Camino La Pólvora, which is the new access road to the port the Valparaíso. From there the highway curves towards the north and splits into a Y-junction. The eastern road is named Variante Agua Santa and serves as access to the city of Viña del Mar. From this road branches off Route Las Palmas, which is part of Chile Route 60. The final stretch of Route 68, named Santos Ossa, makes a steep descent into Valparaíso.

Uruguay: Interbalnearia IB (Montevideo-Punta del Este)




Ruta Interbalnearia (which means Inter-resort Route) or Ruta Líber Seregni is a national route of Uruguay. It connects Montevideo with Punta del Este to the east along the coast. The road is approximately 90 kilometres (56 mi) in length. It is marked in the maps and the signs as IB. The distance notation along Ruta Interbalnearia uses the same Kilometre Zero reference as Routes 1, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 which is the Pillar of Peace of Plaza de Cagancha in the Centro of Montevideo.

What about the BR 116 between Sao Paolo and Rio de Janeiro ? That must be a busy highway connecting the biggest and 4th biggest city of Latin America.

Or do people prefer to fly the 443km between these cities instead ? A plane departs every 15 minutes.

From what I understand long distance travel by car is not as common in Latin America as in North America.

This sub-forum consists in two types of threads: the first one are those for material and information of specific countries. On the other side, I was following the same logic of these threads:

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...43111&page=754
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...13628&page=198
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1959863
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1985165


...amongst others. The stuff I post is always on topic, so I don't see the problem there. Except for the threads I open that say "by EMArg", the other topics are opened for all the forumers to contribute.

Argentina: Route 2 (Buenos Aires-Mar del Plata)




Autovía 2 Juan Manuel Fangio (also known as Provincial Route 2, formerly National Route 2) is an Argentine dual carriageway, which runs from Buenos Aires to Mar del Plata. The road was a National Route until 1990 when it was transferred to the Government of Buenos Aires Province. The Autovía 2 extends from the junction of Provincial Routes 1 and 36 and National Route A004, just on the traffic circle "Juan María Gutiérrez", which is the limit of Berazategui and Florencio Varela districts. Autovía 2 has two toll booths, one in Samborombón managed by the company "Autovía del Mar" and another in Maipú. The entire road is currently managed by State-owned company "AUBASA". More than 30 fuel stations are placed on the route in its entirety. The route has also numerous phone posts to call in case of emergency. Another service is an FM radio station which gives reports about the conditions of the route. Almost all the intersections with other roads are level crossings, without bridges to prevent accidents. There are also two railroad level crossings with Ferrocarril General Roca tracks. This autovía has a North-South direction. It begins in the Rotonda Gutiérrez, where many important roads converge: Provincial Route 36, National Route A004, which connects to NR 1 (also known as Autopista Buenos Aires-La Plata), the fastest option to access to the city of Buenos Aires. There is a bridge over the traffic circle that joins the NR A004 with Autovía 2. Some interesting points are the Chascomús Lake (distant 300m from the Autovía), the Autódromo Roberto José Mouras (a motor racing circuit named in memory of a famous Argentine racer), the industrial park of La Plata and the Chis-Chis Lake, famous for its fishing activities. In the city of Lezama the Autovía becomes an urban street, crossing the center of the city along the railroad station. After passing Lezama the Autovía becomes a road again. At the south of Salado River, the route passes near to Estancia Villa La Raquel, a huge land with a castle built by the Guerrero family in Castelli Partido during the 19th century. This property is currently used for tourism Autovía 2 also passes near to the city of Dolores, next to Autódromo Ciudad de Dolores. At the south of General Guido, in the km 251, there is a railroad crossing with the Ferrocarril General Roca branch-line to General Madariaga, although the service has been suspended since April, 2011. In the city of Maipú, town's streets converge to the route. In Estación Camet, the urban zone of Mar del Plata begins. The road then passes Astor Piazzolla International Airport and after a traffic circle in km 400, the Autovía becomes a boulevard. Between this point and the end of the road, there is another new railroad crossing.

Argentina: Route 1 (Buenos Aires-La Plata)




National Route 1, also known as Buenos Aires–La Plata Highway and officially called Autopista Doctor Ricardo Balbín since 2004, connects the Autopista 25 de Mayo in Buenos Aires with Provincial Route 11, near the city of La Plata. It has a length of 50 km (31 mi) with two or four lanes on each direction in different areas, and is indicated in red in the map. On km marker 31 it connects with National Route A004, the main road to the coastal tourist areas of Mar del Plata and others in Buenos Aires Province. The highway runs (from northeast to southeast) through the partidos of Avellaneda, Quilmes, Berazategui and Ensenada.

Brasil: Rodovia Federal BR-040



A BR-040 é uma rodovia federal radial do Brasil. O ponto inicial da rodovia fica localizado em Brasília (DF), no entroncamento com a BR-450 (Via EPIA) e com a BR-251 (Via EPCT), enquanto que o ponto final fica localizado no Rio de Janeiro (RJ), mais especificamente na Rodoviária Novo Rio. A BR-040 passa pelo Distrito Federal e pelos estados de Goiás, Minas Gerais e Rio de Janeiro, sendo a principal ligação rodoviária entre estas unidades federativas. Em setembro de 2009, o trecho da rodovia compreendido entre Brasília (DF) e Petrópolis (RJ), passou a receber o nome de Rodovia Presidente Juscelino Kubitschek, através da sanção presidencial da Lei Federal N° 12.028/2009 pelo então presidente Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva. O trecho da BR-040 localizado entre Petrópolis (RJ) e o Rio de Janeiro (RJ), recebe o nome de Rodovia Washington Luís, em homenagem ao ex-presidente da república Washington Luís, que ficou conhecido por construir diversas rodovias durante o seu mandato (de 1926 até 1930), incluindo este trecho da BR-040.
