That list just has a different definition of "highway" and is more similar to the definition used in Australia - where any major road between regional areas is known as a highway.

And Australia is so high on that list only because there are roads that cross the country passing a whole lot of nothing like this:

And give us source for Croation stats because CIA says otherwise:

Croatia

unpaved: 4,402 km (2003)

You gave us this stat and claim that your source is World Fact Book:

Croatia:
total: 28,588 km
paved: 28,588 km (including 1,047 km of expressways) (2006)

Some of the ways to compare US highways to those of the rest of the world are flawed. This is because many so-called 4-lane roads have in actuality many more then 4-lanes. Comparing countries lane-kilometres of freeway would make for a better, and more telling result of freeway networks.

Cheers.

If you do a quick survey you'll find out that the terms are very varied..

Anyway, talking about at least 4-laned, limited-access roads, Slovenia has around 500 kilometres of them (highways, motorways, expressways, whatever) and a population of 2 million.

Give us a break. Geez.
i only used 2006 stats for Croatia, CZ, and Slovenia bc I KNEW THE 2006 STATS FOR THOSE COUNTRIES. had I had access to the other countries i would have used 2006 too.

truth is, pretty much every single other country on this list is developed and any change in their overall number of expressways would be small. These three rose rather dramatically, and Croatia doubled in 3 years, so I think it's ok to provide up-to-date information for countries who had very low km's of expressway and are now building up.

but you are right, i apologize for stating my source as being CIA for all of them.

According to that list my country, the Netherlands, has the densest network 75km per 1000km2 And we have 2346km highway, not 2235km
my stat was from '99 i think, so you guys are even denser now

China has built 41,000 kilometers expressways by the end of 2005


我国高速公路总里程达4.1万公里——2010年总里程达到6.5万公里,国家高速公路网骨架将初步形成

http://www.moc.gov.cn/05news/0601/t20060117_29988.htm
  
记者从全国交通工作会上获悉,“十一五”期间,我国高速公路建设仍将“高速”进行,五年间,将新建高速公路2.4万公里以上,至2010年,总里程将达到6.5万公里。届时,国家高速公路网骨架将基本形成。
“十五”期间,我国共建成高速公路2.47万公里,是“八五”和“九五”建成高速公路总和的1.5倍,先后跃上了2万公里、3万公里、4万公里三个大台阶,达到4.1万公里,继续稳居世界第二。按《国家高速公路网规划》,我国将用30年左右的时间完成包括7条首都放射线、9条南北纵向线和18条东西横向线共8.5万公里的国家高速公路网。2005年,全国新增高速公路6700公里,“两纵两横三个重要路段”全部建成,山东、广东两省高速公路突破3000公里,江苏、河南、河北三省高速公路突破2000公里,另有14个省、区高速公路突破1000公里。
高速公路已成为经济社会发展的重要助推器,不仅显著提高了运输能力,降低了运输成本,增强了运输安全性,节约了国土资源,而且在改善投资环境、优化产业布局、促进资源开发利用、提高国家经济的机动性、增强国家竞争力、以及保障国防安全等方面,发挥着越来越重要的作用。
目前我国的高速公路与一些发达国家相比,在发展质量、发挥规模效益等方面均存在着差距。交通部部长李盛霖表示,交通部将进一步健全完善已经形成的多元化投融资机制,不断推进高速公路发展。同时切实研究解决高速公路管理、特许经营、滚动发展等问题,理顺管理体制,促进高速公路健康发展。到“十一五”期末,基本形成国家高速公路网骨架,“五纵七横”国道主干线和西部开发省际通道全部建成。其中,东部地区基本形成高速公路网;长江三角洲、珠江三角洲和京津冀地区形成较完善的城际高速公路网;中部地区承东启西、连南接北的高速公路通道基本贯通。
据透露,今年我国全年将建成高速公路约5000公里。   《中国交通报》讯(胡士祥)

China had 41,000 kilometers (25,400 miles) of expressway at the end of 2005

China's Fast Expanding Road To Development

http://www.industryweek.com/ReadArti...rticleID=11761

By . Agence France-Presse


April 6, 2006 -- From not one mile of expressway 18 years ago, China now has the second most extensive network in the world behind only the U.S., state media said April 5. China had 41,000 kilometers (25,400 miles) of expressway at the end of 2005, the China Daily said. "Our plan for the next five years is to maintain the same speed as in the previous five years," said Dai Dongchang, director of Transport Planning and Research Institute at the Ministry of Communications.



The ambitious construction schedule is of huge importance for China's future growth prospects as at least 60% of its economy is facilitated by road transport. "Although transportation is no longer a bottleneck for the economy, we still need to expand its role," Dai said.


After its completion in 2010, the Chinese expressway network will connect all provincial capitals and cities with at least half a million people.


Over the longer term, the plan is to increase the total length of expressways to at least 85,000 kilometers by 2020, or just short of the current U.S. network of about 90,000 kilometers.


During the period, about two trillion yuan (US$250 billion) will be raised for road development from overseas and private investors.


At least three major expressways will be built to link China's major economic hubs such as the Pearl River Delta, the Yangtze River Delta and the Bohai Sea Rim areas before 2020.
