In my opinion, the best highways in Brasil are:

01 - Imigrantes Highway


02 - Bandeirantes Highway
And Mexico has 15,000 Km of 4-lane highway and 7,000 Km under construction.

These numbers actually represent the total amount of roads in a country (I think it even includes unpaved roads, although about that I'm not sure), and therefore this number more or less is proportional to the size of a country. For example, I doubt that Bangladesh would even be on this list had it been a list of motorways, and the US certainly does not have 6 million km of freeways

I think the best highways are in the United States especially in California and Texas.

It's either an interchange, or somewhere in Brazil they drive on the left for some reason.

Eh, they might not be interstates but there are lots of other highways in the US and Canada.

In Alberta (a province of Canada alone, there is 1,000 km for the main highway (Queen Elizabeth II highway), with other provincial highways #3-70 add to a total of 4,000 km. Then there are secondary highways #100-600 which total something 150 000 km of highway there. This is not including range roads and forestry roads in Alberta. Alberta is 1/10th of Canada.

Everyone please think well. When of the length for the area of the country is thought the Japanese road network which was serviced it is enormous to the small place, you think that it is understood. The service circumstance of ETC, VICS and the farm road, quality of the service area and quality of the asphalt, you must insert.

There seems to be a problem here of interpretation of what a highway is. In many non english speaking countries they interpret the word ''highway'' as meaning motorway/freeway/autobahn etc. A highway is a main route connecting places and regions and can be anything from a gravel road to a massive freeway.

Yes, indeed. And there are differences in Expressways too. Sometimes it's a 2x2 road with traffic light, sometimes it doesn't have shoulders, and sometimes it's just a completely motorway-standard road.

I think it's useful when you're talking about this kind of roads:


This is a Motorway. If you mention this road, everybody knows what kind of road you use. But i can understand the word Freeway is clear enough too.

In Canada, any road under control of the provincial government is designated as a highway.

In Ontario, highways numbered 1 to 199, and 400 to 499, are actual highways, while the majority of highways, in Ontario's case the 500+ series (it goes to 7000) is mainly bush roads maintained by the province, many of them get less than 50 cars a day, some get as few as zero a week.

Also, Canada is as big as much of Europe, I'm sure if you added up all the highways of Europe, it would be more than North America.

[QUOTE=Checker;12258900]Dont really belive that Spain has more highway km than Germany.
How should that have worked out?
Spains infrastructure is paid for by Germany, France and Britain through EU funds.

But don't forget Spain is behind France the second larger country in UE in km2.

That happens in other places of the world too (I'm not sure, but a situacion like this may even happen in some interstate for example).

It doesn't affect in any way the driving.

Nothing to do with left driving.

Interstate 5, there's a section that switches (I think because of geography).
