And then his son will come to power, followed by his son and so on. A paranoid mixture of communism with family rule.

Just can't understand why can't there happen someday any revoultion, it seems NK citizens are not even inetersted in changing the political system and power.. Such a nice country to be honest, has already few really good highways and motorways and everything of it is not being used even a bit!!

This place have a potential, just right people need to come, also in terms of roads which seem to be acceptable. But dirt tracks dominate outside the cities

Pay attention to the surface of those "highways"

These roads are enough wide to handle motorisation growth if ever happen

I found the way with even ten lanes (50m) connecting Pyongyang with town Nampo in the length of about 35 km.

Why need for a flyover? They don't need one. I mean look at how many vehicles passing by. None! Except for the one with trucks in it. I bet that's very rare.

currently, they don't need such a road system... look at the pics, almost all show a ghost town-like city...

they have few vehicles, perhaps because only a few can afford buying.. but they have very wide roads... heck, they even have flyovers!

but, if time comes that North Korea will have more vehicles plying its roads, their current road networks will be enough to handle the traffic...

^ Yep, exactly, if f.i. some sort of revolution will happen there and the country will become democratic, they just won't need to make any serious improvements and build many things new, it all was done long ago! Still, I don't get the point of those who built all such massive road infrastructure all over the country, though with the aim for future!!

I don't think so. I doubt if those flyovers and roads ever get serious maintenance. In the hypothetical case of NK being communism-free in 25 years, I'm afraid all those flyovers need to be torn down and be replaced with new ones.

But when were those massive wide roads and interchanges with fyovers built? How could they even afford building them?

They're showpieces built for propaganda purposes, to project an image of a modern and prosperous country. The regime "affords" such extravagent, no-expense-spared building projects by giving them priority for funding over everything else apart from the armed forces. They are by definition more lavish and expensive than what the country would build according to rational considerations of practical needs and spending priorities.
