Not that it matter much, but the motorway length of Norway is now 466 km, I believe. In addition there is 455 km expressways (motortrafikkvei), most of which is separated.

Compared to India's and Russia's ~1,000 km.

Even more so if you know that Russia has all that oil money. Just more corruption and absurd military spending instead of growing the economy on the long term.

While India and Russia have very few motorways, they have many 4-lanes intercity roads.
Wikipedia gives a 1,455 km figure for the Indian expressway system.
I can't find a single data for Russia, although there's a list on Wikipedia. The sum of all sections gives 837 km.

Of course I can't find if those figures are accurate/updated, although both seems extremely low for countries of those sizes.

Italy:
6,758 km of motorways in 2013 according to Wikipedia.
204 km of motorways have opened since 2014.
The updated figure would be 6,962 km, or maybe higher (I'm not sure whether Wikipedia data includes all spur routes or not).

If we include expressways, the overall amount would be around 10,000 km, making our network the 9th largest in the world (between Brazil and Japan).

It's pretty accurate. Yes, Russia doesn't have even 1,000 km of motorways. Otherwise, there's also the Moscow ringroad (MKAD, 109 km), which is a road reserved for motor vehicles.

Actually, a search on Motorvei on Statens Vegvesen's own map service gives a total of 512 993 meters of motorway. As well as 459 507 meters of expressway. So we've taken another step forward. Still far away from the 3300 km of motorway my road plan includes though.

I though MKAD was considered a motorway. It's very weird that it isn't, as it has 5 lanes per direction.

So, Norway has almost 1,000 km of motorways and expressways. Given a population of only 5 millions, its network/population ratio is comparable to countries like Germany, Italy, France and Spain, although its network/area ratio is extremely low.

There is also 1400km of M4, it has at least 4 lines and barrier between lines, and just 100km marked as motorway.

There is about 2400 kilometers of four lane divided, controlled access highways (class IA or IБ) in Russia. However only a small portion of those are legally signed as motorways.

China to invest 2.2 trillion dollars in transport by 2020


https://news.cgtn.com/news/3d516a4d7...=1488193456531
BUSINESS By Wang Lei
2017-02-27 22:48:56

China plans to invest a total of 15 trillion yuan (about 2.2 trillion US dollars) in transport during its 13th Five-Year Plan period from 2016 to 2020, according to Transport Minister Li Xiaopeng.
At a press conference on Monday, Li said that by 2020 a total of 3.5 trillion yuan (about 509 billion US dollars) will be spent on railways, 7.8 trillion yuan (about 1.1 trillion US dollars) on roads, 650 billion yuan (about 95 billion US dollars) on civil aviation and 500 billion yuan (about 73 billion US dollars) on water transport.

A plan for the development of a modernized and comprehensive transport system during the 13th Five-Year Plan period was ratified and released by the State Council recently, Li said in Beijing.
According to the plan, from 2016 to 2020, the length of the railway network will increase by approximately 30,000 kilometers, including 11,000 kilometers of new high-speed railways; the length of roads will increase by 320,000 kilometers, including 30,000 kilometers of new expressways; the number of quay berths for 10,000 tons of cargo or above will increase by over 300; the number of airports for civil use will increase by over 50.
Through these efforts, the country aims to build a modernized and comprehensive transport system marked by safety, convenience, high efficiency and environmental friendliness.

In 2016, the amount of investment in fixed assets in transport reached about 2.85 trillion yuan (about 415 billion US dollars), up 3.8 percent from the year before, said Li.
By the end of 2016, the total length of railways in service in China had reached 1.24 million kilometers, including 22,000 kilometers of high-speed railways; the total length of roads in service had reached about 4.69 million kilometers, including 130,000 kilometers of expressways; the country had built 218 civil transport airports.
As part of the supply-side structural reform, the ministry will work hard to lower logistics costs, upgrade infrastructure in rural areas and improve government services, according to Li.

The minister also responded to the legislation regarding on-demand mobility (ODM) services, which he called a new mode of “Internet + taxi + transport.” Since the release of guidelines on the registration and operation of ODM companies by the State Council last year, 66 municipal governments have announced specific measures for their cities, while the governments in 127 cities are soliciting public opinion, said Li.
