Autopista Mitla - Tehuantepec

The second stage of the Autopista Mitla - Tehuantepec was inaugurated yesterday in Oaxaca state. It runs from Santiago Lachiguiri to Tehuantepec. It is a super two toll road, this phase is 40 kilometers long. Google Earth imagery shows that construction began in or even before 2005.

Wow, they are choosing a really tough place to build a highway. Nothing but mountains between Oaxaca and Tehuantepec. This could be a really cool road when its done, does anyone know if any tunnels or viaducts are going to be constructed?

Are there autopistas in Mexico with a 120 km/h or higher speed limit?

According to the press release posted by ChrisZwolle, the road will be 169km long with 65 bridges, 11 viaducts (I don't know which criteria was used to define a viaduct or a bridge), 3 tunnels, and seven interchanges. It will definitely be a cool road when it's finished.

No, maximum speed in all autopistas is 110km/h. However, in practice, most people will drive around 120km/h if their car and the conditions allow them to do so. A cop won't bother you if you are +10% of the speed limit. Anything higher than 120 can get you into trouble..

Actually in the 57 highway it's normal to watch people on cars driving between 120 - 140 km/h. A lot of people don't really care about the speed limit except when there's a patrol close.

That is really amazing.

The best part starts at minute 22 and it's just incredible. I tried to keep track of the number of tunnels but it's impossible. It is truly one of the best mountain highways in the world, in my opinion.

Baluarte Bridge and that area is around minute 25..

I really recommend this video, at least after minute 22..

Why are people driving on hard shoulder ? It seems really unsafe.

Is it a four-lanes or two-lanes road ?

It really is an impressive piece of infrastructure. However, the way the lanes are laid out is indeed quite dangerous. Plus, broken and solid lines are crossed by vehicles equally . I think it would've been better to use the width occupied by both shoulders to make a 2+1 road with a physical barrier.

The technical name of this type of road is "two-lane expressway".

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Two-lane_expressway

It has two lanes + a shoulder that allows passing other vehicles. It is quite common in México, if you are driving slowly you move to the right and let other people pass. It is not unsafe, most people know how to use them and in roads with low traffic it is a blessing, as it allows you to pass other vehicles at any given time. Plus, it's cheaper than building a 4-lane highway, so when money is an issue.. A 2+1 road would be less useful IMO..

Yes, I noticed as well on the video that some people do pass when there are solid lines, but that's just bad driving culture, and it has nothing to do with the road..

(BTW I hate those roads as well, but they work and they can really improve routes where building a 4 lane highway is unfeasible).

They appear to be called a 'supercarretera' sometimes.

I dont know if Mexico has a 2+1 road but it reach near-motorway safety levels. Head-on collision has the highest death rate, at least here in Brazil.

2+1 Road
