There is no need when the distance between 2 directions is so big.

It will not. In California, most of I-5 in Sacramento Valley north of Sacramento does not have any barrier - just a grass median 8-10 metres wide. Probably, the road agency calculated that preventing several head-on collisions in a year is not worth installing a barrier.

Actually, Finland has a lot of sunshine and relatively warm summers. The annual precipitation is lower than in other European countries.

Winters are dark and cold, yes, but summers are quite warm and days in the summertime are very long.

Replace that white line on the left side of those roadways with a yellow line and that would look almost exactly like a USA interstate. Some I-routes are getting cable barriers in their wide grassy medians, too, but that looks wide enough to not be a problem.

And that scenery looks almost exactly like northern Wisconsin, Northern Minnesota and Michigan's upper peninsula, too.

(No wonder so many immigrant Finns settled in those places!)

Sverige-Soumi

I have a question, maybe its a crazy question,
If it is possible to construct a motorway between Femahrn (Germany) and Lolland (Danmark) ,
is it not possible to build a bridge like the Femarn-Belt-Bridge (19km), between
Ahvenanmaa Äland (Filnland) and Upland (Sweden) it is the same distance 20km,
I think the other parts to Helsinki are not so defecault!
than helsinki will be not 1800 km from stockholm but only 450km.
You hear in Finland notimes about this idea?

A Sweden-Åland-Finland bridge link is not very realistic. It wouldn't be impossible to build one, but it would be damn expensive. It would also require several different bridges, not just one as the whole area consists of thousands of islands. And because the cultural and natural value of the archipelago is very respected, a project like that would die in a split second. I can also imagine that the shipping industry wouldn't be very delighted.

Taattua suomalaista laatua, oikeen selkeät ja hyvät moottoritiet. Vihdoinkin löysin jonkun suomalaisen keskustelupalstan tästä sivustosta, koska ei niitä kauheasti ole. Jatkakaa vain samaa matkaa.

True finnish quality, very clear and good motorways. Finally I have found some finnish discussion in this forum, because there are not many. Continue the same way.
