I find the speed limits so low on the Helsinki approaches. Only 80 km/h on roads that is inviting you to do 100 or more.

Those pictures seem to be taken on roads 170 and 51.

Road 170 is a 2+2, partly 3+3, non-motorway with narrow lanes, bus lanes, unseparated bus stops, non-standard left exits, short acceleration lanes at exits, and it runs through densely populated areas. The speed limits of 70 km/h and 80 km/h are well justified because of noise level and traffic safety reasons.

The road 51 is the busiest road approach to Helsinki, a motorway with AADT of 70,000. It has 10 exits within span on 11 kilometres, and there is a lot weaving across the bus lanes. The lanes are rather narrow because of adding the bus lases afterwards. Most of the first 10 kilometres of the road is hidden behind noise barriers, because running close to homes. The 80 km/h speed limit applies to first 12 kilometres of the road.

After the first kms Road 51 becomes a very high-standard 3+3-4+4 road for a few kilometres, with local-traffic carriageways between busiest junctions.

No, it does not. The road has 2+2 thru lanes plus bus lanes, and the remaining ramps and lanes are for channeling the traffic flow of three interconnected junctions in order to avoid weaving. The weaving between the junction was a major source of accidents and congestion in the earlier release of the system. The length of this arrangement is about two kilometres.

Even if there may be 8 parallel lanes at a simple cloverleaf junction (2+2 thru lanes, 2 collector roads, and 2 weaving ramps), you do not say the roads is of type 2+2+2+2.

http://maps.google.fi/maps?q=Tapiola...Espoo&t=m&z=14

The road 51 runs East to West, and there is an access to the North-South road 101 (Ring 1 of Helsinki). In addition, there is an access to Tapiola area. The outer lanes of the road 51 are bus lanes. At this junction area, they run separated from the main road:



As the bus lanes are located at the outer edge of the roads, there are weaving sections at every junction except at the middle one of this triple junction.
