You're right, that the highways are excellent, but we, as citizens, deserve excellent highways without paying for them. We also deserve cheap public transport. And these days, governments tend to "forget" about their obligations to the public.

the highways in the pics are rather new, so the photos were probably taken before their innauguration.

Nice! They look a lot like some of the newer roads built in Texas (that's a compliment) -- parallel service roads, trenches and underpasses instead of viaducts and overpasses (less visual impact on the surrounding area), landscaping, and interesting & visually-appealing architectural elements. A few of the ramps between the service road and highway looked dangerously short, but from the pictures it looked like the road was still in the late stages of construction, so it might have just been a temporary condition. Overall, quite nice

[RCH] Chilean Highways

Chile has nowadays more than 3000 kilometres of private owned highways, all of them built or rebuilt in the last 10 years, so as you can imagine, the Chilean highway network is quite impressive for the quality of its roads.

Here are some pictures

I heard these are among the best of South America. Signage is also very good for South American standards, looks like the Spanish signage, but less messy, and that's a good thing.
