you clearly have no idea what a motorway is.

this road has everything a motorway needs. it is divided, has limited access and slip roads. in some countries like germany a road like this could be treated like a fast road, but only if the lanes are more narrow - many motorways look exactly like fast roads - there is only a difference in width...(and I dont mean number of lanes!)

controlled access is just financial option used in some countries. it's not necessary and it's not used in russia at all. there is no any one tollbooth in russia. petrol station is located behind of safe line. it's enough, considering moscow's necessity.

Who said anything about tollbooths?


Btw, does anyone know what in France green signs are used for (like for "Saint Maur" in the 71st post)?

obviously
Austrialian freeway will be concidered at motorway in western europe

the lanes driving in the opposite direction are separated by at least a crash barrier which is designed to resist the oblique impact of a car at up to 180 km/h

Btw, just for information; in Italy they use both freeway signs, green and blue:

and this one too:

but freeways, designated with the green freeway sign, are better, and you can drive on them faster: 130 km/h on 'green freeways' (on some 6-lane freeways 150 km/h), whereas on 'blue freeways' the speed limit is only 110 km/h; so we can generally say 'green' for Italy, besides, there's much more 'green freeways' than the 'blue ones'.

Blue signs are better I think. Chilean highways use blue signs that resemble ones from western European highways, but there are also green signs, but these are used mostly for secondary roads (not the big freeways).

Here are some Blue highway signs from Chile:

Yes, actually by now I've seen them only on ordinary 2-lane roads. Thanks for the answer!
