How straight is the Dutch A6 across Flevoland? (Which yours truly has clinched.)

EDIT: Another question I could easily have answered for myself. [self-]

Longest straight also only about 12.7km.

German A1 between Heidenau and Hollenstedt isn't too far behind at 10.3km.

There are a bunch of 10+km long straights in Spain, but none that long. However I suspect Italy can have a longer one.

I've checked Italy and none of the autostrade in the Po plains is really dead straight. They curve out some 100-300 m over a distance of circa 20 kilometers. This is almost unnoticable when driving.

I don't believe there is an other stretch of highway, even of road, longer than this one in Western Europe.
A8, Italy 29.3 km

EDIT: maybe the junction with A9 invalidates it.

A8 deviates as much as 750 meters from a straight line between those two endpoints.

I made a quick search and found this thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1770897

It's not exactly the same concept of "straight" but we could continue there. It'd be interesting to see each country's longest straight, either on motorways or not.

Col de Sainte-Marie

The Col de Sainte-Marie is a mountain pass in the Vosges Mountains in Eastern France. It used to be a part of N59 between Nancy and Sélestat, but lost importance after the Tunnel Maurice-Lemaire opened to road traffic. It is nowadays used by traffic wanting to avoid the toll and hazardous cargo, which is not allowed in the tunnel. It is presently numbered as D459.

The Fourvière Tunnel in Lyon is closed after a crash caused damage.

Why do they call it A304? It is a continuation of the A34.

WikiSara says Autumn 2014 for implementation of a January 2014 renumbering.

Corsica decided it was a territory, rather than an integral part of Metropolitan France, and so renumbered the Routes Nationales as Routes Territoriales, and added a couple of other roads to that network.
