And now, some pictures of the Puebla - Orizaba motorway, taken by nikkodemo.

The pictures shown here are from the part known as "Cumbres de Maltrata".. (I can't find a proper translation to english). It is the main route from Mexico City to Veracruz (a very important port).

It was very difficult to build the road, because of the complex of the terrain (we go from the 2,400 to 1200 mts, in less than 15 km).

Some google earth views:







The red line was built first, that's why it is more curvy. It is used to go from Orizaba to Puebla. The blue line is the new part of the motorway, and it is used from Puebla to Orizaba.

I guess that's enough explanation.. some pics!

It looks like the A75 in Southern France, there's a huge descend there too in a short distance. Keep them coming!
