In Finland they also have bus stops on motorways (at least on the highway from Vantaa airport to Helsinki)...well, actually it's not right next to the shoulder but there's sort of a mini exit.

Even if it is a bus stop, you can see that the motorway gets an extra lane (I'm not having in mind the bus stop itself), so it's very safe; you can see the same thing on the other (right) side, an extra lane, which disappears right before the junction (interchange). So everything is ok and safe.

I've got two pix of Lithuanian motorways; I believe the color of the motorway signs there won't be a question anymore.

I'm confused; are signs on toll-motorways in Australia painted blue?

Colombia is Green



Almost all "overhead" signs are green, in roads, motorways and urban streets; although within a city the signs leading to other cities or populations are blue.

^ Probably because there isn't many of them in Colombia (I guess), so he was thinking, if there was ANY.

there ain't much, actually it wasn't until 10 years ago that we began building them...luckly due to the FTA with the States, we're building large infraestructure projects, including LatinAmerica's longest tunnels.

The pictures I showed you are from the Cali-Buga highway, in Valle del Cauca department, which is one of the most advanced in Colombia in this subject.

Yes. Blue-Orange signs in Melbourne are tollways, Green is freeways (no tolls).
As for NSW and Queensland (the other states that have tollways), their way of labelling the difference is by means of using the word 'motorway'. If it is a free motorway it's labelled Freeway.

thats totally wrong mate.

freeway / motorway, it doesnt matter. they are the same thing across the country. the different naming of motorway standard roads throughout QLD is from the era in which they were constructed and named. im not sure about sydney.

our tollroads are represented in green like any other road, yet have a yellow and black sign stating that they are tolled. simple as that.

australia really needs a standard across the board when it comes to naming and signage. victoria have done it well whereas the rest of the country lacks the same consistancy. for example, brisbane has 'motorway standard' roads named by motorway, freeway, expressway, bypass, arterial, highway & deviation. confused. ****. so are we!

Considering Montenegro... I think that MNE should be painted green coz if you go to driving school you learn that the signs for highways are painted green. So it is logical that when MNE builds highways it will be green.

Here's some more pics from my country, a little place they call America.

I picked out some nice sunny ones from deserts and urban jungles of Socal, for all you pale Euros out there.



Yay! Los Angeles, that's where I want to go. Good thing they've got four lanes going there.



ZOMG! Hollywood!



You better believe that's downtown LA.



Choices, choices.



Stack interchage. My favorite! /me does happy dance



For you environmentalists out there.



The El Toro Y, the world's biggest interchange.



The Inland Empire.



When I die, I want to be reincarnated as a stack interchange.



Some NorCal action.



Downtown San Fransisco.



And if you get tired of the Golden State, you can always head up to Las Vegas.
