Those "service" roads running parallel to a motorway are nothing special, if they aren't motorway-like, there's plenty of them in my city. Only "tangenziale" like in Bologna, Verona, Udine or Bratislava, for example, count.

From all those cities I would count only Bologna with quite impressive system 2+2+2+2 (being widened to 2+3+3+2 - which is still congested as hell). Especially interesting is spaghetti mess in A14-A13-Bol. tangenziale intersection.

^ Bologna indeed has the most extensive tangenziale system, but if just talking about wide roads, other cities count as well; Verona and Udine already have 2+3+3+2 lanes. If anyone can explain to me why Udine needs a 10-lane highway, it would be great.

a couple of extra lanes on the m25 wouldnt harm anyone, the traffic is terrible even out of rush hour times, and with london's population growing and growing, its bound to get worser

I see a lot of highway pics here that are massive! I want to know how many of them actually stay that wide throguh the city. For example, here in Toronto, the 401 is 14 - 18 lanes wide all the way through Toronto, and even further east in Pickering, and furhter west in Mississauga. I think for a highway or road to get the title as the widest road, it should be a decent length, and not just a couple miles where two highways merge.

Because it's China! They're Communist and they don't care; that's why they don't follow the Kyoto Protocol and everyone's scared of them (except for the Taiwanese).

And those environmentalists fighting against a lane extra in the Netherlands... They´d better go to China, much more to win there...

This is pointlessly wide - Laagna road in Tallinn, built by Soviet occupators- 4 lanes in both directions.

Can you figure out what the traffic volume is on that road?

Unfortunately I can't, but it's 4+4 lanes only in a short section, otherwise it's 3+3 or even 2+2.
Here's another photo of this road:

But it's a 16+4 lanes urban street. I think there aren't too many more in the world.

Barcelona:

Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes "cuts" Barcelona from river Llobregat to river Besòs in a straight line and it is 14-15 kilometres long, with 12 lanes in some sections:

the 401 is not the widest but it is around from 8-20 lanes for at least 50km straight and is being widened more in the the more outer areas stretching to over 80km straight of 8-20 lanes of road!
