Some pics of the road between Murmansk and Dal'nie Zelentsy, in the most northern part of Russia. Taken from a facebook group about an Italian overland expedition.

Thanks, I had no clue about this. So, North Cape is not the northernmost place that you can reach by road in Eurasia.

Of course, they are, but they aren't connected to the mainland. There are even some 'roads' (or tracks) around Alert research station, in Canadian Arctic at 82°N.

I wish Russians built a proper road all the way to Cape Chelyuskin.

It would be designated a border zone and one would have to jump through a load of hoops or bribe countless officials in order to even come close to that road. Probably all the cities in the last 1000 kilometres would be closed as well.

Russians building a road from Magadan to Anadyr (close to the Bering Strait). 128 km in 6 years. At this rate they will reach Anadyr in 2120.

If Americans will ever build a road to Nome, on the Alaskan side of the Bering strait, they could introduce a ferry service between Anadyr and Nome, making possible to travel between Eurasia and Americas with motorized vehicles.

The road to Nome is already planned. Anadyr is really far East, but not sufficiently East to be actually West as I thought.
