That truck barely fits in the lane!

I think Chile's fixation on cutting on costs has gone to far. Those lanes are dangerously narrow.

In Costanera Norte the left lane is so narrow that buses and trucks can't (or shouldn't) use it because they don't fit.

Yes. I wonder what is the width difference between the US freeways and Chilean expressways.

In the US I think the minimum width is 12 ft (3.66 m), at least for the Interstate system.

Anything between 3.5 m and 3.75 m is common. Though on lower speed urban motorways, narrower lanes do exist.

The Netherlands has several cases of very narrow left lanes which only open during peak traffic hours. They have a width limitation of 2.0 m, but the lane is a bit wider than that of course. They have an 80 km/h speed limit when open.

I think many of the roads in Chile are much narrower than their EU counterparts. As said above Costanera Norte is really narrow and large vehicles can make it dangerous to drive on. Same for Ruta 5 in the south. Many of the roads are 100-120km/h limits, but many drivers use cars at 120 regardless of the limits, and there are plenty of people who go even faster, especially on Costanera Norte, which takes the rich people up to Lo Barnechea, so there's plenty of BMWs and Maseratis to go stupidly fast with.

When I came back to Britain after 7 years there I was astounded by the massive sea of tarmac that was the A47 Norwich bypass, which is a pathetic road by European standards (no hard shoulders...). But you get the idea.

What are exactly all the road passes between Chile and Argentina that are paved on both sides and connected to both road networks?

AFAIK, the "Paso Los Libertadores", "Paso de Jama", "Paso Cardenal Samore" and "Paso Integración Austral". There are several more road passes, but I don't know if some of them is totally paved along its way.

Santiago de Chile.

Autopista Central, has an Open Trench section in its Downtown section. There is a project to cover it and recover urban space to get public esplanades and new squares.

Autopista Costanera Norte, emerging near buildings in Providencia District.
The motorway has a 4 km underground section that follows the river.

Autopista Costanera Norte, Nudo Lo Saldes
This is a really important spot in Santiago, where traffic jams are always big and complicated. Today is under a deep transformation, and will be completed next year.

Autopista Vespucio Oriente

A 5.2 kilometer tunnel segment of the Autopista Vespucio Oriente in Santiago will be tendered in July. Construction on the toll road could begin in 2018 and be completed by 2022. The cost is $ 800 million.

It doesn't appear to be the full length of Autopista Vespucio Oriente, but the southern segment between Avenida Los Presidentes and Avenida Príncipe de Gales.

The PDF file at the bottom of the press release has a few sketches.
