Of Course there is, Mexico City to Monterrey then Monterrey to Nuevo laredo. All 4 lane tolled highways.

Monterrey to Laredo isn't quite a motorway on it's entire length. It is more like a 4 lane boulevard with grade intersections.

The three main roads through Nogales aren't motorways either, more some kind of expressways with grade intersections here and there.

Oh, that! I hate it too! But here it's US' fault, not Mexico's. Mexicans have a motorway west of Nogales all the way to the US, connected with the US road 189, which has a few grade intersections before connecting with the I-19. I don't even know why 189 isn't I-19. But this whole thing has an insignificant impact on the countries' motorway networks.

If there was a high volume of traffic between Mexico and the USA, I am sure there would already be decent road connections between these two countries. Tijuana has a good network of roads to serve the tourist, but Baja California itself is quite an isolated area of Mexico in terms of road infrastructure.

Mexico City repaving work

The primary road network in Mexico City is to be repaved over a three year period at a cost of US$185 million. The local public works and services department is pushing ahead with the highway maintenance program, reports Business News Americas. The work will focus on the city's Paseo de la Reforma, which extends for some 411km of its 913km primary highway network. Work will cover the Paseo from its intersection with the Anillo Periférico beltway to its intersection with the México Toluca highway, as well as between its intersections with the Hidalgo and Basílica avenues. Some of the rebuilding work is required as the Paseo de la Reforma's central lanes were initially built on low-quality terrain, with no reinforced concrete, some 40 years ago, which has resulted in problems such as fractured concrete and subsidence. New, high-quality asphalt will be laid along the road, while the work also entails repositioning and repairing lights, maintaining green areas, building pedestrian bridges, and signaling improvements. The first phase, covering the Paseo's intersection with the Anillo Periférico to the Paseo de Bucareli, is already 85% complete.

There is a expressway connection with Reynosa/McAllen and Matamoros/Brownsville from Monterrey, and they are full expressways...

Mexico invests in highway work

A healthy US$5.5 billion budget will be invested by Mexico's federal government on nationwide highway infrastructure projects during 2008. One of the key projects is for a bypass connecting Amozoc with Perote in Puebla and Veracruz states respectively, reports Business News Americas. Other projects include work in the northern part of Mexico City and the Morelia-Salamanca highway, linking Michoacán state with Guanajuato state.

In 2008 southeastern Veracruz state will renovate a number of highways as well as maintaining feeder roads. One of the state's priorities is the bypass for capital Xalapa, with construction scheduled to start in late March or early April. Another project due for development is the Laguna Verde-Gutiérrez Zamora stretch of the Tuxpan-Tampico highway, which will connect Veracruz with neighboring Tamaulipas state to the north.

Key tasks are the construction and modernisation of toll-free national highways, maintaining the federal network and developing the rural road network. Toll highway construction is another target and there are 11 projects under construction at different stages in their respective concession processes and all of them are scheduled for completion in 2008. Amongst those scheduled for works completion soon are the Amozoc-Perote highway, linking the states of Puebla and Veracruz; the Tepic-Villa Unión highway, connecting eastern Nayarit and Sinaloa states; and the Morelia-Salamanca highway, between the states of Michoacán and Guanajuato. Significant investments are also scheduled for the 221km Arco Norte of the Mexico City beltway, which is due for completion in December having started in January 2006. Recently awarded concessions include the Arriaga-Ocozocoautla highway in southern Chiapas state, which started in December 2007.
Are they adding toll-free motorway next to the tolled motorways, like they do in Spain?

Didn't expect Mexico to have so many highways with at least 4 lanes across all the country! Most of them look really good on the pics you posted.

Do you know how many km of this "1.5 lane roads" exist in the country?

What I like the most are the bridges. I love these two in particular:

Haha, thats funny.
But seriously I had no idea Mexico had highways that look like the ones in this thread, I have a US/Canada/Mexico travel atlas from the early-mid 90's and it doesn't show any freeway in Mexico, just some dual carriageway.

Excellent pictures, thank you.

A couple of queries,
1. Driving from the US-border to say Mexico City: what would the total amount of toll cost come to?

2. Is the Highway(s) completely paved from the US border to the southern end (Belize?)?

3. Are there fuel stations on the toll roads, or does one have to turn off into the nearest town?

4. I drive a diesel powered car made in Mexico (VW Jetta). I suppose the availability of diesel is pretty good? What's the quality like?

As an aside, when I was in Toronto in 2003, I once saw a VW Jetta with Mexican plates. I thought to myself, 'now there was a well-traveled individual'.
