Oh, 172 kms. missed that. Well actually €512m for 172 kms is about the average cost per km during the last 10 years on Moroccan motorway construction. I think I saw it on the Autoroutes du Maroc website that the most expensive motorway to construct so far was the Tanger Med port access with 74 mdh/km. This one only reaches some 33 mdh/km.

Wow, truly low cost. I thought it was way more expensive.

What are you talking about? Are you making up definitions? These are highways - 120 km/h - barriers - Brake-down lane - Tollway's.

Dual carriage is a typical british invention actually. These are autoroutes, similar as highways we know in France and Spain - or motorways, as the english call them. The amount of lanes doesnt make a difference. To make things clear, most of the motorways in England are dual-carriage.

There probably is. Morocco is not one safe place for a motorist, that's for sure.

Dual Carriageway is a road design meaning divided highway, it may have typically have 2 or 3 or even 4 lanes on each side.

Motorway is a restricted highway, typically dual carriageway (but not always) but with traffic restrictions (no animals, bicycles etc) and grade separated junctions.

Most motorways in the world have only two lanes each way.

exactly, only a few countries seem to build 2x3 lanes nearly by default (Britain, Turkey and Pakistan come to mind).

Morocco has undoubtedly one of the largest highway network in Africa
