this is a little stupid... because a big country has much more probability to have more than an small country.

btw: i dont know how many km of highways have my country... but have a lot of them, cause all the cities have highway connection.

Expressway: Defined as at a highway with at least two lanes and at least one shoulder. Must have a median between the two directions.

United States of America:
total: 6,407,637 km
paved: 4,164,964 km (including 74,950 km of expressways)
unpaved: 2,242,673 km (2004)

you guys want to find the number of EXPRESSWAYS, the underlined number above. The huge 6,000,000 km thing is simply the amount of highways, defined as "any important automobile transit route."

phillipines has very, very few kilometers of motorways. Not simply because it's not a wealthy country, but because there are 8200 islands in the country.

yes i assembled this entire post myself.
they are outdated,your data is 2003 data of China.China built 4543 kilometers expressways in 2004 and at least 5000+ kilometers expressways in 2005.

so,by the end of 2005,China has built about 41,000 kilometers expressways.(at least 4 lans)

2004年,全国新增高速公路通车里程4543公里。江苏、江西、甘肃、河南、福建和黑龙江六省全年新增高速公路通车里程均超过300公里。截至年底,全国除西藏自治区未通高速公路外,其他30个省(市、区)的高速公路里程均超过100公里。高速公路突破千公里的省(区、市)上升到16个。分别是:山东(3033公里)、广东(2519公里)、江苏(2423公里)、河南(1759公里)、四川(1758公里)、河北(1706公里)、辽宁(1637公里)、浙江(1475公里)、江西(1425公里)、湖北(1353公里)、山西(1347公里)、安徽(1294公里)、云南(1291公里)、湖南(1218公里)、广西(1157公里)和福建(1043公里)。

Please don't quote such big lists! It's annoying and a simple reply will perfectly do.

According to that list my country, the Netherlands, has the densest network 75km per 1000km2 And we have 2346km highway, not 2235km
