Here are some more pics of the M8 in Glasgow as Glasgowman has already shown you some pics.


The Supports on the right hand side hold up a bridge with an office building on it.




The M77 entering Glasgow.


The new M74 completion route will 2x3 lanes and will meet up at the Kingston Bridge, one of Europes busiest bridges with about 200,000+ vehicles a day. It will start construction in 2008 along with the M80 upgrade to Falkirk.

All of these big streets are nice, but this sunny one is still my favourite :

Some photos of the North Circular Road (A406) in London

Briefly - it's an expressway, running through the London's northern suburbs. Usually, it has 2 or 3 lanes in each direction, mostly without hard shoulders, but there are few bottlenecks, where it returns to a single carriageway (1x2 / 1x3) road with traffic lights, going through residential areas


North Circular Road (Eastbound) in London - Picasa Web Album, 186 photos



Sample pictures

Stonebridge Park Junction




Near Neasden/Wembley


Staples Corner (where it meets M1 motorway)


On a flyover


Brent Cross




And a bottleneck in Arnos Grove area There are plans to widen it to 2 lanes in each direction. However, they don't include building grade separated junctions




And back on a true expressway






2x5 section before interchange with M11

Some photos from the A40 road in London

A40 in London - Hanger Lane to Edgware Road (incl. Westway flyover) - 52 pictures

blue - motorway standard
red - just dual carriageway road


Beginning of the Marylebone Flyover This road was to become part of Ringway 1 (which never materialised).






Back on a flyover This road was built in a motorway standard. However, since about 2002 it is signed as a normal road (with a 50 mph speed limit).

The end of the expressway




Carriageway widening




Hanger Lane junction, where our journey ends

Nice. I know Warsaw has no motorways, but it has expressways. Do you know some sites containing pictures of them (as many as possible)? I know there's much stuff in the Polish section, but threads are often without pictures, and there's so many of them.

Yes, in 2007 Warsaw still don't have any kilometer of real motorway (politics, wrong tender documents...). It's sad. We were close to start building the first section of S8 (part of Warsaw Ring), but probably we have to wait few months.

I just took those pics from google

An other pics of M3's urban part. I have to add that its not even an expressway(for obvious reasons) and 80kmh is the limit, but its a direct continuation of the M3 motorway.

Some Dutch urban.

1. However you won't say, this is in a build-up area. A4 near Den Haag.


2. A4 entering Amsterdam.


3. A10 ring Amsterdam.


4. A10 Amsterdam, you don't want to live there. This stretch is often jammed, because the Coentunnel is only 2x2 lanes.


5. A10 Amsterdam.


6. A10 Amsterdam westside. Buildings over the motorway.


7. A10 Amsterdam, multiple rail lines in the median.


8. A12 in Den Haag. Again, buildings over the motorway.


9. A15 in industrial Rotterdam.


10. A16 near Rotterdam eastside.


11. A20 near Rotterdam. This is the busiest Dutch 2x3 motorway.


12. Old drawbridge in Rotterdam on the A20.


13. A28 in Zwolle, a very urban motorway, since the motorway is cutting right through the city. Not very Dutch.
