I have many photo's of the that jouney.
Hehe, you chose the right option, I mean the fastest one. You took the Austrian A$ motorway? I know you have to pay for them, I just didn't know that in dollars! (I believe you meant A4) So you went via Eisenstadt and took S31 and S4 to get to A2; good option.
Just FYI: the Zagreb - Ljubljana motorway is now ok! Besides, in the upcoming weeks they are gonna open the motorway by the Slovenian-Hungarian border. Ok, no more off-topic, hehe.

Yes, that's exactly what I did. And yes, I meant A4.
They are going to open the motorway by the Slovenian-Hungarian border? I guess that would be a streatch of motorway between Maribor (or close to it) and the border, right? That's good news!

Yes, between Maribor and the border, but BY the border, so from the border "into" Slovenia (just 10 km though).

That looks like an excelent motorway, but what really strickes me is the size of the toll both's area. Only 4 cabins. It's the smallests trunk tool both I've ever seen.
Anyway, I guess the motorway won't have to much traffic in the first years, and then they will add more cabins if needed.

Gantry version of Freeway


Information not related to directions such as merging traffic or emergency stopping lane info are in white.
What we are discussing is the colour of the signs, and that would be green for Australia

The tittle is "Blue vs. Green motorway signs". It doesn't say anything about being only about europe, although the threat started has posted an european map to start with.

For a proper motorway, controlled access is compulsory, not an option. Not for an expressway though.

I didn't knew about that! It's funny!

I heve to try one of those blue italian motorways!

^ Hehe; I believe one of them is between Florence and Siena (R0 (also RA03)); don't know for any other. But watch out, no more than 110 km/h!

Hehe, ok! Then let's move to Canada. Isn't green in Quebec and blue in the rest of Canada?

Section 16 of Russian rules define that access and traffic rules on motorways. It's applying on roads with sign #5.3.

Both colours on Québec autoroutes -- I think the blue-coloured ones stem from decades ago when there use to be toll plazas on some autoroutes here -- I see from somebody else's photo posted in this thread that a Toronto-area toll route has a blue one.

Blue signs look somehow rusty to me, on the contrary, green signs are very sexy

It's not too much to list those (European) countries that don't have motorways/freeways at all, so you don't have to bother with them, hehe: Andorra, Monaco, San Marino, Vatican, Liechtenstein, I think Montenegro and Moldova (not sure), Iceland, Latvia (although they have 4-lane expressways), don't know for Georgia, Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan. Ukraine has many 4-lane expressways, but I think also a few motorways/freeways (and I think the color of signs on them is blue, but I'm not sure).

Verso, I have never seen the last car sign in Italy. As far as I know they have the blue motorway sign for the same thing we use the blue car sign.

Expressways instead of motorways, basically motorways meant for lower-volume routes, narrower, usually no emergency lane, steeper gradients, sharper turns and the speed limit is 110 kmh instead of 130 kmh (in Italy) and 100 kmh in Slovenia. They are still limited-access, though.

Between Bormio and Tirano (it's 2-laned).

Interesting. Cuz when entering Italy the speed limit for roads with that last sign aren't showed (just green motorway sign, blue motorway sign, inside and outside urban areas)..

^ Yes; I don't know what the speed limit there is, because it wasn't shown by the sign itself, but it can't be less than 90 km/h, as it's the general speed limit on roads, outside built-up areas.

Monaco is served by the French motorway system

I forgot Malta; it doesn't have any freeway either.
