[BY] Belarus | road infrastructure

Do you know any motorways in Belarus or have any pics ? I know one at the moment, M1, it's 2X2. This road leads from polish border to Minsk and further to russian border, probably not as 2X2. Oh and there are also some motorways (dualcarriage ways, expressways ??) around Minsk.

Minsk has a motorway (2x3) ringroad, as well as (short) radiating motorways out of the city. The M1 is 2x2 all the way between Poland and Russia, and is said to be tolled at some sections.

In the former Soviet Union, one lane motorway-like (grade separated) roads, are all over the area.

From some videos that I've seen a while ago on Youtube, the internal roads (streets) in Minsk seem to be surprisingly good and well marked/maintained. Don't know anything else.

^ Yes, the renovated part of the MKAD (not to be mistaken for Moscow ) is high-standard, but not all of it is motorway-like.

Some Minsk from Panoramio;













Urban road:




The Minsk MKAD is mostly 2x3 lanes, and grade-separated all the way, however there are some uncontrolled acces roads, but no grade crossings.

Yeah, it kinda looks like the United States midwest in the 1960's.
