Mexico City Highways

These are some pictures of the recent opened second level in the Periferico Freeway. Now it's a two-floored freeway.

The figure above for French roads is inaccurate. As of official figures from January 1, 2004 (source), there were 1,000,960 km (622,100 miles) of paved roads in France. Add to that the 500 km or so of motorways/freeways that have been opened since 2004, then the total in 2006 should be around 1,001,500 km (622,400 miles). This figure doesn't include roads in the French overseas départements and territories.

France is usually said to be the country with the 2nd longest mileage of paved roads in the world after the US. This is due to almost 3 centuries of modern road building starting from the reign of Louis XV in the 18th century when the first modern corps of roads and bridges engineers in the world was created by the French royal government. The figures above suggest that India has more paved roads than France, but this would have to be double-checked.

The US ranks first and Germany is third respectively.
Second is China.


From Wikipedia:

"Today, Germany's autobahn network has a total length of about 11,980 km (as of January 1, 2003), third after the United States' Interstate Highway System and the National Trunk Highway System (NTHS) of the People's Republic of China."

This figure include National road and Departement road .


I think there is more 12,000 Km of Motorway in France

11,810 Km at the beginning of 2001source

This is the 3rd or 4th Motorway system in the world (Same lever than Germany but less dense because France are bigger than Germany. )

Longest 4 lanes highway branch in the world?

There is a project to upgrade A1 highway in Italy from Milano to Bologna from 3 lanes (plus 1 emergency lane) to 4 lanes (plus 1 emergency lane)
They are about 200 km of lenght and I was wondering if there are longer 4 or plus lanes highway branches (existing or planned) in the world

And in any case I'm courious to know what are the longest branches with 4 lanes

Post data and possiblly pics

You mean the longest stretch of road with at least 4 lanes in each direction?

Well, the longest part i know is the Moscow beltway, which is named MKAD, Московская Кольцевая Автомобильная Дорога (translated as far is i know: Moskovskaja Kol'cevaja Avtomobilnaja Doroga), which is 109kms long, and has 2x5 lanes (so 10 in total). As far is i know, this is the longest 2x4+ wide road in Europe.

Um, many places in the U.S. I could think of SF to Sacramento and LA to San Diego to name a few with similar lane counts.

Perhaps, it's not the longest in the world. Seattle to Tacoma is around 30 or so miles long with 10 lanes (5 lanes each direction)

Sheikh Zayed Road that connects Dubai with Abu Dhabi is some 140 km long and has between 4 - 8 lanes in each direction (most of it is with 4 though)

The 4 lane-in-each-direction bit goes from the M4 in the west to the m23, and a bit further, in the south. There are a few other bits and pieces. About half the 4 lane bit has been widened to 6 lanes recently.

Isn't Londons traffic a hell? I mean there isn't even a ringroad near the city center, like Berlin.

There actually are 3 ringroads, although the centre two consist out of multiple roads forming a ring together.
The North Circular and South Circular are a second ring, and the Inner Ring Road is a third.
