The roads in your photos - 2 are in tunnel controlled areas and the third in an old section of route 4 in the central district - do not meet motorway standards and so have blue signs. If you look at the sections of these highways which do meet motorway standards (such as the IEC section of route 4 east of Causeway bay), you'll find green signs.

The roads which meet motorway standards are shown in double line in the following map and should all have green signs.

Lithuania looks the way Russia could have looked if it suddenly became civilised Anyway, the road signs look exactly like those in Kaliningrad district where I learned driving. These signs are just maintained better. Nostalgia...

Is that road leading East from Kaliningrad a motorway-(like) road? I see it on various maps, and it looks like some fast road.

I kinda noticed that as well. But the end of the route 3 approaching the West Harbour Tunnel has blue signs.

No, E28 is not a motorway. It varies from a 4-lane divided highway to a 2-lane ordinary road. Some parts of it may look like motorway but only for a short time.

In fact, there are no real motorways in former East Prussia. Man, Russia cannot even build a continuous motorway connecting Moscow and St. Petersburg even though it is badly needed! It is a shame that two biggest cities in the largest country in the world don't have a motorway connection. It is unimaginable in any civilised country. Even Ukraine build a motorway connecting Kiev and Odessa. Oh well, Russia always had two problems - roads and fools. You can't fix the earlier without taking care of the latter

Please help with your country! Thanks.
all the eastern european countries don´t have signs on their motorways?

Verso, I missed the Ukraine and Romania signs. Which colour are they?

(I'm also still looking for a good outline map of the world that I could use to expand this project. It needs to have coastal and border outlines, like the European one above.)

Ukraine is supposedly blue (but we still have no proof/photo), Romania - green:

Would you look at that? Metric on a US sign in California, they are few and far between but they exist, if only there were more.

Ukraine is blue. I am absolutely positive of that. I drove there several times to visit my grandma who lives in Kiev.
