If it is considered the same standards, all the listed countries have more than that. Brazil 11,000km highway system has a much smaller portion with grade separation and minimum radius for curvees.

Theres quite a bit missing on the above map....

M6 Connection to Scottish border missing.
M23 looks abit short?
M45 Missing
M55 Not connected to the M6
M57 Missing
M58 Missing
M61 Not connected to the M60
M181 Missing (ok its tiny)
M271 Missing (ok its tiny too)
A1(M) Missing in Cambridgeshire and all of Yorkshire...

Also, technically it shouldnt be on it yet, but the M80 in Central scotland will be linked up, fixing yet again another missing link.

I feel as if that's the case for the vast majority of developing countries, their figures are probably all inflated as well. I've been recently interested in Brazil's highway system, their seems to be some work done but I think theirs a lack of vision in various projects they seem very "local" by nature. Brazil needs a visionary project that seeks to connect most state capitals with a proper motor way, you see quite a few projects of a few kilometers here and there but nothing of a large state by state basis. I guess the BR 101 projects is the exception to that rule.

Chris, I am keeping a detailed site on Irish motorways. The total now for the Republic of Ireland is not 1000 km, it is 918 km.

I don't update this list anymore. Everyone is free to update their network lengths with a quote of the ranks.

Asia has surpassed North America with the largest network of controlled-access highways, thanks to the massive Chinese expressway construction programme. Asia now has the largest network in the world.

The stats by continent:

* Asia: 117,631 km
* North America: 108,563 km
* Europe: 85,972 km
* South America: 12,931 km
* Africa: 7,909 km
* Oceania: 3,341 km

world total: 336,347 kilometers of controlled-access highway.

No, that's the only expressway system in Europe I left out due to the lack of statistics about the Strada extraurbana principale. How many kilometers of them are there?

How much of those 1,141.7 km of expressways are (at least) 4-lane and how much just 2-lane? I know S22 is 2-lane, for example.

The proportion of two-lane S-roads was higher in previous years, but virtually all new S-roads in Poland are now constructed as 2x2 expressways. The few that are constructed with 1x2 lanes are usually short bypasses of towns.
