Here,in absolute numbers,the M6-M60 project is the most expensive. Its 132,3 km long and costs about 386 billion HUF(1,6 billion EUR).

The costliest section per km is probably the new Danube bridge. Its 1862 m long(with connecting roads,maybe slightly over 2000),and costs 61,9 billion HUF(26 million EUR).

The proposed Waterview Connection in Auckland, New Zealand is pretty damned expensive. Close to $NZ1.9 billion (around 1 billion euros) for 5km of motorway (mostly all in tunnels).

Here's the wikipedia page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waterview_Connection
Newspaper article: http://www.nzherald.co.nz/section/1/...ectid=10491037

A few maps & images:








Not sure if this will ever get built though....

Well for Greece is definitely the Egnatia motorway (A2), the whole project is expected to cost 5.9 Bln euros (~9.6 bln $), and its length is 670 Km, which means that it costs around 8.8 mln EUR/Km.
The motorway consists of 570 bridges, 41.7 km length, and 74 double tube tunnels with 50 km length (100 Km length of tunnels).

For Bulgaria it is Lyulin Motorway U/C for 7,78 mln. EUR per km., due to the difficult terrain and the fact that 1/2 of its route passes through tunnels and viaducts.

The South part of Sofia Ring Road currently U/C however, will probably set an unbeaten record for Bulgaria with nearly 15 mln. EUR per km. but that is mainly due to the payment for private land owners and the complicated underground infrastrucure(sewers, cables etc.) that is included in the works.

I don't know. This is from www.autosnelwegen.nl :

Eén kamerlid stemde voor de motie, in de gedachte dat hij voor de aanleg had gestemd. En zo wonnen de tegenstanders van de aanleg het met één stem, die eigenlijk in het kamp van de voorstanders lag. Het was een officiële stemming en zo verdween de A4 Midden-Delfland voor jaren van tafel. Ondertussen was de aardebaan voor de nieuwe rijksweg tussen Delft en Schiedam al zo goed als gereed.

That's total insane...
Its far more cheaper to demolis a few dozen houses, than to build a deep tunnel under them.

if they want to build a tunnel the cut&cover option is about 3-5 times cheaper...

People are egoist and nimbyist. everybody wants to live in a nice suburb and to drive a car, but nobody wants roads...

Hello, wake up! you can't drive without roads...

Now which section would that be? Wyszków bypass?

Latvia - E22 motorway section Rīga (Tīnūži) - Koknese (60 km) 200 million lats (280 million EUR).

Hello, wake up! you can't drive without roads...
I'd say there are 2 different cases.
First is when people build their homes,and then suddenly the country plans a road over their homes. In this case,objection is acceptable,since the road came second.

Second is when the road was already planned on that location,but people built their houses there(perfect example:future ringroad "Munkás" or "Körvasút menti",call it the was you want) in Budapest,planned about a 100 years ago). In this case,objection is not acceptable,since they should have known about the road. So demolition is a good solution.

Well in this case the road definitely did come second. There is still no actual designation for the route for the Waterview Connection.

A more 'at grade' level would cost close to the same amount as 500+ houses would need to be bought and bulldozed (around $NZ300 million for that alone). Same for cut & cover. Furthermore, the proposed route crosses one of Auckland's best remaning streams and the largest waterfall within the city. These would have to be destroyed as part of an at-grade construction. I think a lot of the cost is also in the interchange with SH16 at the end of the connection, which obviously has to be built no matter what.

Yes it's a very expensive project, and with automobile use generally falling away in Auckland I can't see it being built for a while yet, even though it is the last remaining link in a huge wetern-bypass of the central city.

In Malaysia, the most expensive specific expressway cost is the 4-km SMART Tunnel (Expressway E38). With the overall cost of RM1,887 million (US$514.6 million), it translates into RM471.75 million (US$128.65 million) per km.

Complexity and difficulty of construction. For example moving 2 rail lines and a large scale move of many underground media (communication, water, electric etc) connecting large Warsaw boroughs.
