Great photos however I think you should note that neither of these highways are motorways. The Mexican equivalent of a motorway is an autopista .These highways you just posted are dual carriage roads which in Mexico you refer to as a carretera. The Monterrey Saltillo carretera used to be an autopista a couple years ago, however it no longer is. There is however a new autopista that was just opened a couple months back, it would be great if you could share with us some of those picture.

You're right, it's a carretera libre (free motorway or something like that), I'm sorry for the mistake, however the new highway between Monterrey and Saltillo is really awesome, on the next posts I'll post some pics and videos about that highway.

Anuncio de la entrada a la Autopista a la altura de el Periférico-García N.L.


La entrada a la Autopista Monterrey-Saltillo


Muy barata, solamente 39 pesos


Me sorprendió lo "recta" que es la mayor parte de la autopista


Los cortes de los cerros tienen una malla metálica de protección


La vista de las Montañas norestenses


allá abajo, los que van por la carretera "la libre"


Los acotamientos, !no salgan sin revisar sus llantas!!!


La ventaja de ir por autopista es el auxilio SOS vial en caso de algun percance


No se decepcionen. no esperen llegar hasta el centro de Saltillo en "autopista", hay un gran tramo en el que salen de la autopista y tienen que integrarse a la carretera libre, para entrar al Area urbana de Saltillo.


DE REGRESO A MONTERREY

la cementera


aqui se entra a la Autopista Saltillo-Monterrey



El muro de contencion central esta a todo lo largo de la autopista


Los muros de rocas para contener los deslaves


la línea roja, salida de emergencia para vehiculos sin frenos


al llegar al AMM es cuando cobran el regreso, otros 39 pesitos


La Huasteca dando la bienvenida
casi llegando al puente bajen la velocidad a 60km/h como indican los señalamientos, aguas ! con esas bollas.


Y lo que habíamos comentado....
La Torre Lovft en Santa Catarina dando la bienvenida al area Metropolitana de Monterrey.


La autopista Monterrey-Saltillo, una buena opción,

Saludos!!!

Now thats an autopista. My only complaint though is that it connects to Av. Morenos Prieto instead of Constitucion.

Are there any plans to join those autopistas into a cohesive 'system', much like the USA's interstates?

It's possible, because near of Saltillo city are making several autopistas.

Everything is possible.

Somewhat. The problem in Mexico is that the interstate high system is impressive and massive. However the inner city motorways are very sub par. There are only a handful of Mexican cities with proper inner city motorways.

That new motorway which he posted will take you from Monterrey all the way the Mexico City completely with grade separated intersections.

Interesting, Mexican road signage have some similarities with European sistem. At the beginning I didn't understand why they put "km/h" on speed limit signage (we don't use it in the most part of Europe) until I remembered Nasa engineers lost a satellite on Mars because they confused 100 miles with 100 km. So the "km/h" could prevent US drivers on mexican roads, the speed limit is 100 km/h not 100 mph.

I don't think that's of any help since American cars have gauges in miles and not both miles and kilometers so an average American doesn't know how fast to go if the sign says 80 km/h.

Is the average American really that stupid that he can't convert from kilometers to miles...

Many American cars do have kilometer indicators. Check for a loop of kph marks inside of the mph loop on the speedometer.

I saw pics about US/Canada borders, there are some signages indicate "Think metric". I am interesting if there are similar signages on Mexican borders. I think it's better and logical for US cars to have double indicators since his both neighbours countries are metrics.
Nikkodemo, I am waiting for pics too.
