It will be interesting to see highway & expressway data for various countries.

Nevertheless, 14,000 km of 4-8 lane highway & expressway construction in India is a significant infrastructure program.

Er..Highway is confusing word. America has "highways" or US routes, Highways as interstates or super highways as expressways. To some extent this applies to every country (some call their interstate autobahns, some Motorway and in India it's NH). It's still highway. So access controlled, no traffic light roads aren't always expressways. I somehow doubt that US has 80 km of expressways. It's just good old interstate with 2 or sometimes 3 lanes though you can find real expressways here and there. Expressways are just like normal interstate highways but with more lanes and city to city layout instead of never ending road covering many cities.

cmon i mean someones gonna be like ok the line says i can exit there and when he tries he gets hit by a truck or if hes smart sees the truck coming and misses his exit

and in the second pic i hope like they have oncoming traffic lanes behind the bushes or w.e that we cant see because then if theyre jus builidng 2 lane highways(1-1) then theres no use in that
