If the renovate their motorways which are MAJOR connections to the east they should do it properly, E79 parts which were renovated in the same period when the Struma motorway was being built feel like Maglev, so the Bulgarian company manages to renovate the roads properly but the Serbs don´t? The national road passing through the gorge with the 13 tunnels is properly done, it´s smooth but the motorway, no.

Then would you be so kind as to answer these?

1. Do they have gas stations on Mars?

2. Was the Struma built by Martians?

Can´t answer it, I just know that the Struma was built by Professionals from Professional companies which know what they are doing.

Motorway density by country...

It is anything but easy to figure out which countries have a seriously well-developed motorway network and which countries do not. Just counting kms or miles isn't really going to cut it, one obviously have to consider country size as well (surprisingly enough, Luxembourg will never have the same network length as the US...). But even that isn't enough, since a densely populated country like Germany needs more motorways than Sweden, for example. So, then, how should one address this...?

Being exceptionally bored today, I tried to develop a system. First, I looked at length of motorway network per 1000 sq kms. Then, I divided this number by the countries' population density, and reworked the figures into something comparable - the highest number "wins". Here is what I found:

Norway: 0.06 (280 km motorway divided by 324, then divided by 14, 324 being the 1000 sq kms leaving Spitsbergen out of the equation, 14 being population density per sq km)
Sweden: 0.12
Germany: 0.15
USA: 0.25 (not including Alaska)
Spain: 0.30
And so on...

A couple of comments before everyone start hacking my head off: I KNOW there are debates as to what constitutes a motorway. Should I have included "Gelbe Autobahns" in the German figure (which I did not), should I have left Spanish Autovias out (which I did not either), and how many kms of what we Europeans refer to as motorways actually exist in the US..? I used the figure 75,000 kms, believing I've seen it on this forum. Anyway, I think this is a sensible way of counting, and if you reject my figures (for the record: 12,000 kms for both Germany and Spain, 1100 for Sweden), feel free to substitute your own. The population figures are from CIA's World Factbook.

I have calculated the US freeway system, it was close to 100.000 kilometers. Official figures usually only include Interstates.

OK, thanks, that would up the number to about 0.30. Still, the Spanish network is quite impressive. Of course, to make this even more reliable, one shouls count number of lanes as well, but that's just too much...

Maybe it's also interesting to calculate the future number. Like eastern European countries only just started constructiong motorways.

Sounds about right. On a Norwegian note, I find it quite interesting that if one were to build the approx 500 kms of motorway the National Road Administration deem necessary, we would roughly be at the same figure. A full 1000 kms would make us surpass the US and Spain - not that that's ever going to happen...
