The road looks very European.

Though i don't think curbs along the motorway is a good idea. The emergency lanes are too narrow for trucks, and also too narrow for cars to change a tire or something. When you can park half in the berm.

Is there a height difference between the lanes and the shoulder? That looks somewhat dangerous to me, the pavement can crack.

some of those pics are pretty impressive but some of those highways only have 2 or even just 1 lane for each side. i mean, how does that work? don't they get really congested?

I agree. It's probably because of the lack of space.

Those highways don't have as much congestion as the highways with more than 2 lanes. They widen once they're close to the only major city they're connected to, Manila. Otherwise, they just go through small cities.

Not from my point of view. I've ridden through Philippine Expressways tons of times, never noticed a height difference.

some philippine highways do have height difference between the lanes and the shoulder. the pic above is a perfect example, notice that within the lanes are asphalt covered, you drive a foot or two through those lanes then you would feel a light thud (an elevation difference of around an inch), means that you're driving on the shoulder (which are concrete or sometimes gravels). it tells you one thing: GET BACK WITHIN THE LANE.
