You can add the picture "Welcome to Tabasco" to long mileage signs thread I like the distance sign that says 1020 km to Cancun

It is probably for reducing the noise down the bridge. You can see some glass also..

When I visited Mexico in the 90s I was actually quite impressed of its transport infrastructure, given the level of development in other areas.

This signage works like this in all Latin America. The dash on the circle means forbidden, instead " end of prohibition" as in Europe!! First time I've been in Europe found it some kind of weird, not so logical. But now I see each system has it's goods and bads.

By the way, looks like in Mexico happens the same as in Brazil. The more we construct and widen our roads, much more cars invade them! Anyway, love that roads!!

It has to do with an increase of welfare or population growth.

Roads -> increase of welfare/pop. growth -> more cars -> more/wider roads needed

It's not like if you construct a road, and out of nowhere BAM! there are thousands of cars. They come from somewhere you know.
