This is really a good looking expressroad, way better than expected! But does any part of this road has motorway standards (with green sign if BY follows USSR norms of signage)?

Belarus has usually been the exception in the ex-USSR when it comes to roads. My parents told me that even during Soviet times, when they lived there, the roads were very good, at least in Soviet standards.

Good quality roads. The only thing that is negative is that Belarus seems to ignore some intl standards regarding signage and crash barriers. I've read in Belarusian forum how there is a noticeable difference in road quality as soon as you cross the border from Latvia as Latvian P68 road is apparently some kind of horridity.

I don't want to start a "who's got a larger *****" contest but I believe that Lithuania has the best roads in ex-USSR and that Lithuanian roads are considerably better than Belarussian roads.

Anyone knows what is the meaning of route numbers like YE28 and YE30? What road type they represent?

I must agree with bleetz. In Lithuania there are poor Motorways but other roads are quiet good. In Belarus there is one good Motorway but other main roads are not so good :P
And trust me it's very, very poor country.
Belorusian Motorway is nice because there is little traffic. Look at it's surface with 'normal' traffic, like in Lithuania (or high traffic like in Poland) it will be destroyed. Fast.

Yes - I've been to both countries (Belarus and Lithuania) and I've got the same mind - Belarus has worse road infrastructure than Lithuania but still I would say "much" better than Ukraine...In my country (Poland) unfortunatelly roads are not perfect but the diference is we built much more new roads than ex soviet countries...

Belarus will introduce a new electronic toll system on the M5. The M5 will be widened to a 2x2 motorway from Minsk to Babruysk (partially already completed). After the works are finished, an electronic toll with "microwave design" will be implemented. That looks similar to the Premid system in Czech Rep. and TollCollect in Germany. I'm not sure if they will only toll trucks or also cars.

The question is where will they get money for it. Belarus is almost a bankrupt now.

You don't need any money for such system. All you need is a private concessionaire who will build, run and maintain the system and who will receive part of the revenues which will during years (it could be even decades) pay-off the construction and maintenance costs, interest and profit.

I've calculated the Belarussian motorway network length.



So that is 987 kilometers total, mostly due to the fact M1 is long and a motorway.

The definition of a motorway could slightly differ from that in other countries, as they can occasionally have pedestrian crossings or forest roads that enter the motorway in rural areas. Nearly all roads intersect the motorway with grade-separated interchanges. Cloverleafs are extensively used. (also between non-motorways).

Lovely bus stop.

It's probably service area.

The spelling of Belarussian towns and cities is so annoying. Some cities have 3, 4 or even 5 ways to spell it.

Vitebsk - Viciebsk - Vitsyebsk
Mogilev - Mahilyow - Mahiloŭ - Mogilyov
Gomel - Homiel - Homel
Hrodna - Grodno

Some are Belarussian, others are Russian. According to Wikipedia, Russian is by far the most spoken language.

It's a bit of the same in Ukraine where half of the cities are spelled in Ukrainian and the other half in Russian or used interchangeably.

It's even more complicated for Poles. For certain reasons,
spelling of some Belarusian, Ukrainian or Lithuanian places must be as far different from Polish name as possible.
How would you say that?

It's the same in Montenegro. Some signs are only in latin alphabet, some only in cyrillic, some in both. Bosnia at least has a system, eventhough signs are sprayed in many cases.
