Nice roads indeed, but what do you exactly mean with "private owned highways", they got build by private funds and will be always private owned, or will they get under state control after 10 or more years?

No, they've got a contract with the Chilean state to run them for 20-30 years.

Yes, indeed. Chile has put as a high priority the fact that higways should have a minimum impact on enviroment and for urban landscape, with strict regulations. For example, in Santiago there is a highway that runs through downtown as a tunnel under the Mapocho River for 7 kilometres, and a 10 kilometres underground highway in eastern Santiago will be adjudged this year, and there is a plan to cover up with a park a three lane each way highway that runs through the city in North-South direction.

This is Costanera Norte Highway, that runs in an east-west direction through Santiago. Seven kilometres of the highway (the part that crosses through central Santiago), are built as a tunnel under the Mapocho River.

Here is a picture of a skylight of the westbound part of the highway

Really nice roads yes, but on most pictures the highways don't have hard shoulders. Especially on busy urban motorways they contribute heavily to safety.

This could be easily in the Netherlands, landscapewise!
