Statsvejene

Vejdirektoratet har det fulde ansvar for at anlægge, drive og vedligeholde statsvejnettet, der er på ca. 3.800 km.

The length of motorways= ~1500Km

So, you can say more then 50% of the roads are paved.

Interesting, why are some 3-digit (Sekundærruten) owned by the state? Most do not seem to be owned by the state.

New Administrative Structure in Denmark

... Leading to Expansion of the Road Directorate
Since 2002, the Danish government has been working on a new administrative structure, reducing the number of municipalities from 172 to about 100, which will have a size of at least 30,000-50,000 inhabitants. Furthermore, it is planned that the present 13 counties will merge into a number of regions which will be responsible for healthcare and education. The structural changes will be in effect as of 2007.
A newly approved amendment to the act of the Danish road sector will lead to a doubling of the staff of the Road Directorate from app. 450 to some 900 employees. The main road network in Denmark will be administrated by the Road Directorate and the more local road network by the municipalities as of 2007. About 2,000 km or 1,240 mi. will be added to the national road network, served by the Road Directorate, in addition to the 1,700 km or 1,000 mi, administrated at present. Another 8,000 km or 4,960 mi will be transferred from the counties to the municipalities.
The Danish Road Directorate is currently planning the establishment of six Road Centres throughout the country.


Well, this could be an answer ChrisZwolle,...maybe not.

Drawing from a discussion in the roadside rest area about paved road mileage per capita, I decided to make a list of European countries.

This only shows how low our population number is Paved road network isn't as dense as you'd think.

Good table.
Maybe you also have such table with motorways per head statistics?

Calculating motorway lane mileage is an extremely time-consuming job. I once did it for the Randstad only, took me half a day (to find out the Randstad motorway lane mileage is similar to that of the lowest ranking metropolitan areas of the U.S: New York and Los Angeles).

Ok, in Spain the road network is a little more than this

Red de Interés General del Estado: 26.041 km
Redes autonómicas: 71.084 km
Redes de diputaciones provinciales y cabildos insulares: 69.081 km
Otras redes: > 500.000 km

The list ONLY includes paved roads. In many countries, unpaved roads (that also includes little used agricultural roads!) accumulate for about 10 - 20% of the entire road network, in some countries even 50%.

Spain is such a country with vast agricultural areas, so I assume their number of unpaved roads is also larger than average.

Let`s make some changes to the list by ChrisZwolle. All data from this thread.

So,

China has 55.000 km
Germany 14.185 km
France 13.786 km
Spain 12.946 km
Canada 6.165 km
Malaysia 1471 km
Poland 1200 km - plus 1000 km dual carriageway, but non-grade separated roads from socialistic times, togather 2200 km
Czechia 1002 km
Iraq 2227 km - interesting thing is, most of these roads were built by polish companies in 1980's.
Norway 350 km
Sweden 1700 km
Morocco 1152 km

The changed list contains only dual carriageway (four or more lanes), grade separated (access controlled, limited-access) roads:

Highways, motorways, expressways in length:

1) United States 75.009 km
2) China 55.000 km (growing over 4500km each year)
3) Germany 14.185 km
4) France 13.786 km
5) Spain 12.946 km
6) Brazil 11.000 km
7) Japan 6.946 km
8) Italy 6.621 km
9) Canada 6.165 km
10) Mexico 6.144 km (growing fast)
11) India 4885 km (seems unlikely to me)
12) Saudi Arabia 3348 km
13) Thailand 2885 km (are those all expressways?)
14) Chile 2653 km
15) Netherlands 2360 km
16) Iraq 2227 km (i don't think they are all motorways)
17) Pakistan 2225 km
18) Portugal 2002 km
19) South Korea 1996 km
20) South Africa 1927 km
21) Ukraine 1770 km (most of them are grade-expressways i guess)
22) Belgium 1729 km
23) Turkey 1726 km
24) Australia 1700 km
24) Sweden 1700 km
26) Austria 1677 km
27) Switzerland 1638 km
28) Malaysia 1471 km
29) United Arab Emirates 1392 km
30) Poland 1346 km
31) Venezuela 1256 km
32) Nigeria 1194 km
33) Morocco 1152 km
34) Croatia 1050 km
35) Griekenland 1030km
36) Denmark 1010km
37) Czechia 1002km
Egypt 988km ( i doubt of all these motorways are real motorways)
Syria 877km
Taiwan 872km
Hungary 860km
Russia 770km
Iran 751km
Belarus 750km
Argentina 734km
Finland 653km
Algeria 640km
Cuba 638km
Serbia 560km
Oman 550km
Lithuania 523km
Slovenia 442km
Kuwait 420km
Jordan 401km
Indonesia 385km (i thought they had more)
Norway 350 km
Qatar 333km
Uzbekistan 332km
Bulgaria 328km
El Salvador 327km
Slovakia 316km
Cyprus 276km
Peru 276km
Romania 266km
Dominican Republic 263km
Libya 262km
Uruguay 252km
Tunisia 249km
Cameroon 240km
Macedonia 192km
Philippines 170km ( i thought they had more)
Cote d’Ivoire 162km
Kenya 153km
Singapore 150km
Lebanon 145km
New Zealand 144km
Latvia 132km
Israel 126km
Luxembourg 114km
Myanmar 101km
Vietnam 100km (new motorways)
Estonia 75km
Zambia 50km
Ghana 35km
Jamaica 33km
Bahrain 30km
Gabon 30km
Guinea-Bissau 15km

GRAND TOTAL: 259.027km

You must notice, that a motorway in Cameroon or The Dominican Republic can completely differ from what we seen in Europe and the United States. Length shown here can be seen as highly controversial for some countries. Most data token from wikipedia or the CIA Factbook, and, in some rare cases, i figured it out with maps.

Sometimes, wikipedia doesn’t seems to be very accurate, for example they say Australia has about 16000kms of Expressway, which seems to me as highly unlikely.

Any comments or corrections are very welcome.

Before i starting to figure this out, i thought, there were some 270.000 kilometers of motorway/expressways on our globe, and, it seems to be i was quite close to that.
Argentina has more than 2.000 km of 2 or more lanes each way
