Everyone who's thinking Philipines is poor isnt thinking good enough

Eventough I think the figures are wrong, cause Germany has much more highway's than France....and The Netherlands more than Austria.

Canada:
total: 1,408,900 km
paved: 497,342 km (including 16,906 km of expressways)
unpaved: 911,558 km (2002)
EXPRESSWAYS PER 10,000 PEOPLE: 5.67 km
EXPRESSWAYS PER 1000 SQ. KM OF LAND: 1.87 km
On a per capita basis, Canada is the king of highways, they aren't pretty but impressive for a country with the same population as Mexico City.

The funniest thing is that in Toronto, there seems to be relatively less highways than the American counter parts. There is only one full east-west highway, with 2 others being partial. Then there are two north-south highways. That is Toronto's highways are so wide

China's Fast Expanding Road To Development
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.
Ahhh, nice to see mankind progress!
