Drove all the way through Germany this year, a lot of the autobahn is just concrete, not brilliant. But them I'm English, so I can't talk about roads!

Yeah German roads aren't all that good as you might hear. It is also a fairytale all Germans drive 120MPH+

Autostrada A3 close to Vibo Valentia in Calabria, Italy:


But in general it doesn't look so bad, just some old sections are in bad condition.

A lot of Belgian motorways used to be in a very bad condition. Full with potholes and cracks, sometimes, not recieving any maintenance in decades.

However, the worst motorways are being rehabilitated in the past years. Some bad section still exist.

Bad sections;

E17 near Gentbrugge (bad bridge)
E25 near Visé (pavement dates back a few decades)
E34 Antwerpen - Dutch border (pavement dates back 36 years)
E34 Antwerpen - Beveren (concrete plates)
E40 near Liège (Meuse bridge)
E42 Battice - German border (pavement 20 years old)
E42 sections between Liège and Charleroi

I heard Belgian motorways build in the late 70's and early 80's didn't get a foundation, asphalt was just layed on sand. No wonder the road was filled with holes 15 years later...

Well the asphalt seems ok, but the road does definitely needs lines, and of course to get cleaned from the vegetation.

As for a really crappy motorway, mainly cause of old crappy pavement, a part of A1 motorway near chalkida in Greece, does really fits the title, its quite ridiculous that the just repaved the road only where it was hardly needed, unfortunately i got no pictures

Old M7 toward Balaton was so crappy few years ago, that it was the best to drive on emergency lane, because it was the only lane with asphalt.
