Such highways are banned in the Netherlands. Too unsafe, they say. However, i like this kind of road. A wide asphalt median, but i wonder why it isn't a full motorway with crash barriers. It doesn't take more space up than now.

Maybe there's no barrier because side roads and driveways intersect?
In that case its a nice wide median for turning traffic.
Occit might know?

In California, there are quite a few of such 4-lane roads, and some of them even have a speed limit of 105 km/h. I don't like them for the very reason they are banned in NL - it feels too unsafe to drive there. However, this type of road doesn't last too long - maybe 10-15 km stretches and then they either become full motorways or narrow down to 2-lane roads.

Nice highways, good to see that the petro dollars are going into infrastructure.
your president is a very interesting man with some interesting opinions especially as far as the western powers is concerned.

Very nice.

Well engineered and well built.

I would only add fences to keep the cattle out in the rural highways.

Caracas freeway systems is fabulous.... a tropical Los Angeles.

Don't worry, there's a lot of ppl outside your country that see what Chavez has done to your country. It's clear that you can draw a line in the sand and see what your country looked like before he was elected, and what it looks like afterward.

Sooner then later, RCTV and other stations shall return to the air(not just on cable either).
