Neither of those towns are really large enough to have a well-known Spanish version, so they're just in Portuguese

Yes, there will most likely be a EU sign "France".

I've only seen these signs in EU members (but of course Brazil can erect it, if it wants to).

even Greece doesn't have EU, but Hellas.
I was talking about "Croatia 1 km" in Slovenia. Anyway, it isn't our invention, I've seen an EU sign somewhere else, I think it was even on an internal EU border. And even if, what's wrong with it? I think it's pretty cool to inform people you're entering EU (which may not be entirely obvious just with the EU stars).

I don't think that this is something rare.

For example, Lysá Poľana in Slovakia -

I just found this picture from 1993 when Slovakia was born.

Signs with the country name on a European flag were around years before Schengen. I remember seeing them on the border between France and Germany back in the early 1990s. As far as I remember, they went something like:
  • ALLEMAGNE 1 km
  • ALLEMAGNE 500 m
  • DEUTSCHLAND (on the border itself)

Hahahahaha, doubt it!!! If Brazil erects a sign for itself it would surprise me already!! The road itself is in ridiculous situation:







Probably because Amapá state is not linked to the rest of the country by road, the Federal Gov. doesn't cares much. And the state government either has the money, plus the fact that things over there were messy last years, the last governor was under arrest, so things don't move too fast on this side of the country.

They are currently upgrading the road on the Brazilian side of the border, so it won't look like in the pictures. The road, however, will end at the Amazon River. There is no bridge crossing the Amazon, and I don't think any bridge is planned, so you won't be able to drive from Cayenne to Rio.

Meanwhile on the French side of the border they have just finished the pavement of the road leading to the bridge on the border.

Building a bridge across the Amazon River near its mouth would require at least three major bridges that are each 10 - 25 kilometer in length.

Is there at least ferry in Macapá? There doesn't seem to be any road on the other side of the Amazon. So you'll be able to access just a small part of Brazil from French Guiana?

As you can see on this map of the Brazilian ministry of transports, there is a fully paved road between Macapá and Calçoene, and then the road is currently being paved between Calçoene and Oiapoque where the bridge is located. There is also a fully paved road from Belém to Brasilia and the south of Brazil. The missing link will be between Belém and Macapá.

In order to avoid the mouth of the Amazon, they could build a road between Altamira, Almeirim, and Laranjal do Jari (in green on the map below). They are currently paving the road between Belo Monte and Itapiranga, and then south of Itapiranga it's already entirely paved to Brasilia and southern Brazil. So all they would have to do is pave the road between Săo Pedro and Laranjal do Jari, build the road between Laranjal do Jari and Almeirim and between Almeirim and Altamira, and cross the Amazon at Almeirim where the river is the narrowest.

To cross the Amazon at Almeirim all they need is a 4 km bridge between the south bank and the island in the river, and then another 770 meter long bridge between the island and the north bank.
