PLH, it's 2x2. 1x4 would be 4 lanes, all in the same direction. it doesn't matter what is in the middle, what is matter is nuber of lanes in each direction

Ok, never mind.
In Poland we call such roads 1x4, and highway-like ones 2x2

In summer 2007 I've been to the Czech republic on holiday.
I have made some pictures when driving the roads.
You can find them here

No, 2x2 means that the 4 lanes are equally distribute on two carriageways. That's a bit different.

Of course it does matter. It's a huge difference whether directional traffic is separated by a central reservation or not.
1x4 - 1 carriageway ŕ 4 lanes
2x2 - 2 carriageways ŕ 2 lanes
That's the common diction.

I don't think the lack of a physical separation is so important to make it 1×4. I'd call that 2×2.

It isn't 2x2, the digit before the 'x' stands for the number of carriageways, the other one stands for the number of lanes on ONE carriageway or direction. However it isn't 1x4 also, it would mean that all 4 lanes can legally be used for both directions. To be more precise I would say its (1x)2+2.

Like this road, no one would say that this is a 1x3 road


We all call it a (1x)2+1 road

Of course one would. This is a single 3-lane road. S3 or 1x3 if you like. This diction is a simplification to describe the constructed cross-section and not legal issues regarding lane usage.

2+1 is common to call such roads in the Netherlands. 2x2 = 2 lanes on both directions, usually motorways. 2+3+3+2 are 5 lanes per direction, divided over 2 directions.

However, 2 lane roads are called 2x1, even if they don't have separate directions.

A massive pileup on the D1 from Praha to Brno.

116 cars and trucks crashed in a snowstorm.









That seems to be halfway from Praha to Brno.

What is the difference between a continuous and a dashed-from-one-side marking of emergency lane?
