The highest is Viaduc de Millau in France, I assume?

I know, but i remeber i saw great panoramic pictures on this subforum and i don't remeber where.

Ok, next year i'll try to take my own pictures


And answering CborG - i've seen many trees between carriageways on A9 in Germany near Sachsen-Bayern border. These trees will be cut down, while motorway widening.

Trees are not that rare in the median in the Netherlands, the A1 Amersfoort - Apeldoorn, and the A28 Amersfoort - Zwolle and A28 Hoogeveen - Assen have entire forests in the median.

A1 near Kootwijk:

A6 through Lake Tjeuke in Friesland:

A8 through swamps:

A2 just north of Maastricht; 140m wide median with houses in between.

A50 between Apeldoorn and Arnhem, large ecoduct:

A4 near Leiden, traffic jam hotspot nr 1, the road narrows from 2x5 lanes to 2x2 lanes without hard shoulders.

A4 between Delft and Rotterdam, approved in 1965, construction started in 1968. Construction stopped in 1976. Not completed as of 2007.

More facts from Poland:
Motorway crosses (Autobahnkreuz) - O (none), 1 under construction (A1/A2 near Stryków);
Motorway triangles (Autobahndreieck) - 1 (A4/S7 near Balice, this part of S7 is signed as a motorway; this is also TOTSO) and 1 under costruction (A4/A18 near Bolesławiec - Krzyżowa);

Motorway/expressway and expressway crosses: 1 (A4/S1 near Katowice)
Motorway/expressway and expressway triangles: 1 under construction A6/S3 near Szczecin.

Many other exits are cloverleaves or triangles, but motorway or expressway cross with other roads, so i ignored them.

How can people live like that? I think it is a remnant of the Midages - just like this dutch-belgian border - these houses have always been there, am i right?

No, an exit with a roundabout is English style. Not an interchange of 2 motorways...

Yes, it is. It's still ridicolous such an important interchange is just a roundabout with a fly-over for the continuing A67. For the continuing A2 (West - South and vice versa) there's a bypass in southern direction, but in western direction you have to take the round about 3/4. However, the A2 gets widened to 4X2 between interchange Leenderheide and Ekkersweijer, and there's planned a shortcut in Leenderheide. The A2 will be the main direction. (you can find a map of the situation here)

You mean 2x4? Or 4x2 - two separated roads in each direction?

I see 3 totsos will be elimanted, but Kn. Ekkersweijer and Kn. Batadorp (grrr... this dutch words are really tongue twisters ) will remain...

Ekkersweijer, Batadorp

4x2 is the equivalent for 2+2+2+2

The last one, 4X2. So with parallel roads (unfortunately those are without hard shoulders and with a speed limit of only 80km/h...)

Hehe, I would say that from some Polish words too. I won't even dare to try to pronounce your username (or is it an abbreviation?) nor the city you're living in correctly.

I can pronounce Polish names quite okay. Hungarian is much more difficult to me

Sorry for these errors, i corrected them.

Pmaciej7:
p = Pan = Mr
Maciej - that's my name = you read something like match-ey
7 means nothing, i tried to register as pmaciej, but i couldn't.

Szczecin... try Stche-chin

One more question: There's an exit between two knooppunts. If there are two parallel roads, how will drivers exit from A2 (two middle roads), and where will two lines of cars (A2&A67) mix together?

At the intercharges Leenderheide, Ekkersweijer and De Hogt you need to decide whether you want to follow the main A2 or the parallel road. If you chose for the first one, you can't exit anymore untill the next intercharge.

Why traffic jam on lower part of the picture? It seems as there is a semaphore/traffic light.

On motorway?
