Very nice highways, I wish Canada's were in such good repair and as unclottered and free flowing as those are.

Wow, amazing infrastructure. Chile is one stunning country. Santiago is great, and the scenery throughout the country is fantastic. If I had to move to South America, Chile would be my number one destination.

A couple of questions:

When did Avenida Kennedy become a toll road?

Looking at the maps at turistel.cl I see a couple of obvious corridors for expansion. SE from Concepcion to Los Angeles and between the Panamericana and Valdivia. Also there is no motorway from Algarobo to Valparaiso/Vińa. Any plans for these routes.

What is the speed limit on these roads? What speed do people drive?

Are trucks using these toll-roads. What are the tolls like?

What is happening with other road projects? Are secondary roads being upgraded as well?

the government of northern Chile's Atacama region, also known as region III, has approved the expansion of the Ruta 5 highway along the Vallenar-La Serena stretch. The $269 million project involves expanding into four lanes the current two-lane highway. The Atacama government will pay $133 million for the works along a 101km stretch, while the government of the Coquimbo region, also known as region IV, will cover the rest. Chile's public works ministry (MOP) will cover 70% of the project financing, while the remaining 30% will come from Atacama.
Very good. Chile has the most modern Autopista's in Latin America.

Environmental aspects under spotlight - Chile

The Chilean authorities are now evaluating the environmental aspects of highway projects for Region III worth a total of US$306 million. One of the projects is for the upgrade of a stretch connecting Copiapó to Vallenar along the Ruta 5 Norte highway and will require a US$143 million investment, according to Business News Americas. A second calls for upgrade to highway Ruta 5 Norte around the Vallenar town area, including improvements to the highway and building a bridge over the Huasco river, with a projected cost of $12 million. The third consists of improving highway Ruta 5 Norte around the Domeyko-Vallenar area and includes widening, new access and exit roads, and safety measures and is expected to require a $73 million investment. The last project is to upgrade the Copiapó to Caldera stretch on highway Ruta 5 Norte and includes widening the highway, building a new access road to the local airport and another to Caldera and will require an estimated $78 million.
Some more info on the CH-5 extension

Sorry i have no exact info about this, but i believe it's since 2 years ago? any chilean forumer please correct me

No, the current road is doing just fine.

Quote:

80 km/h for urban expressways, 120 km/h for highways

When there's no traffic, in urban expressways, average people drives MUCH faster, i'd say 120km/h or more.

in highways people usually drives at 120 km/h because of police speed controls.

Quote:

´
Trucks do use these toll-roads, tolls are free-flow inside Santiago: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_Flow, and for inter-city highways there's normal tolls.


Quote:

Yes, there is massive investment for secondary roads too.

Can someone explain why South American countries have European looking road marking/signage unlike North America? Any historical factors?
