[RUS] Russian highways - Российские магистрали

Russian highways!

There aren't so many motorways, but there are some radiating out of Moscow, the longest being the M4. There is also the MKAD, the Moscovian ringroad, it is said to be the busiest in Europe

Some pics;

Russian roads are not something.
some of them reminds me south east american roads (like in Georgia, Florida and Carolina).
Kaltsevaya Daroga of Moscow is ok.
i remember a good road east to Moscow (when i was there in 1999).
also, the russians can't drive. i will not be surprised if the highest percentage of accident in Europe.

Chris, Russian highways = Российские автодороги. You might want to correct the title of this thread. People don't typically say магистрали in plural form.

When you refer to landstraße, you should say 'трасса' or 'шоссе' (more rarely). When you refer to autobahn, you say 'автомагистраль'.

I think it's a shame that there is no continuous motorway from Moscow to St Petersburg. Since I myself is from Kaliningrad (Königsberg), I haven't driven a lot in the 'mainland' Russia; however, once I drove from St. Petersburg to Moscow, and it was not a particularly pleasant drive.

Russians highways - Rossiskaja magistrali (Российская магистрали) which means - Russian routes

I reckon it's good though

M7 - is this considered a motorway in Russia? If it is, it's sure a lot different to other countries, what with no linemarking on some parts, single carriageways, undivided four lane sections, sharp turn-offs and to cap it all off, in the fourth photo above, pedestrian crossings!!! WTF?? LOL!

No, i don't think so. I haven't seen maps that show the M7 as a motorway. However, what i've seen from maps and Google Earth, the Russian definition of a motorway is the same as in the rest of Europe (at least 2x2+emergency lanes and no level crossings). However, the state of pavement may be worse considering local harsh winter condition (with temperatures ranging from +35 to -45).
I'm not sure about the MKAD, most maps show them as a motorway, but i think it is more considered as an expressway.

In Russia, there are a lot of threelaned and fourlaned roads, which aren't motorways. In fact, most M1 - M9 roads are generally of a quite good capacity, but the pavement can be extremely bad, and so is safety.

i think MKAD is motorway, it should have 5+1 for each direction (5 driving lanes and 1 SOS). but you know that ringroads are often characterized as expressways (for instance Praha ringroad, Wien's S1 etc.)

the condos are quite Chinese-style.
But chinese builds dense highrises just because they has hell enormous population.

I wonder why Russian build such dull buildings while Russia has the largest area in the world.
