I also think that New Jersey crashbarrier(if that's what is called) can really help our motorways filled with accidents every day

That curve seems to be way too sharp for this road to be classified as a highway (srry Radi)

I think it's the zoom. Check out the French A75, they have extremely tight curves there near Lodeve. Quite spectacular.

i think that Kruijk means the one at the middle of a straight section (short sharp curve), it really looks as italian horizontal marking in the movie of new Mestre's bypass, remember?

The shiny crashbarriers, the snowwhite concrete the very white gravel and so on look apsolutely insame, the Trakya motorway is nothing compared to that.

Actually it's not the zoom. The section of the infamous Struma highway, which by accident happens to be mere 15 km long, has some curves with radius, which does not fit the highway standards.

As for the speed limits, well, I'm afraid that nobody can answer this question for sure. While some of the traffic signs are green, there are still other signs, setting a speed limit of 90 km/h.
