It's not about the commies, it's about the modern urbanism, that proved to be a dead end. Priority for individual transportation, separation of pedestrians and road traffic, adoration of wide multilane streets, overpasses etc. They did it in the west too with UK beeing probably the best example (not mention the USA). We had a lot of this in Poland too. In my city they turned this...


...into this:


Despite owning a car in commie times was a luxury the roundabout was shut down (not for trams) few years after opening duoe to heavy traffic jams and accidents. One big fail. It's now in the very centre of the city looking awful and expecting redesign and refurbishment after construction of the nearby new train station is finished.

In the neighbouring city of Chorzów they turned this...

...into this:


The once pleasant square became a sea of asphalt and conrete The overpass was supposed to be demolished, but the small city ain't got aprox. 400 mio euros for the new bypass, so it'll stay with us for many more years

it is not important to what extent you change the names like Rugovo-a, Peć-ja Kosovo-a they are still Serbian words, with Serbian root and meaning.

Now pls contribute with photos

In terminology, Karayolu (even the quality or pave doesn't matter) is Highway and Otoyol is Motorway. It's an Otoyol.

Antalya;
Istanbul road at 1930's. The road get asphalted before become a part of E-24(as old European road numerations) highway til the new numerations. Currently maintaned by Municipality including light railline.


The slight curve at the back of the photo is now a 2x3 road with 2 collector roads (total 10 lane) that merges D-400 and D-650 (taken 2 years ago);


Kemer road, before the completion of urban boulevard goes parallel;


This highway is a carpark today


This road is also owned by Municipality today (with classic tramline);



This part at City Center, Kalekapısı was also counted as highway. It's a pedestrian street currently (Taken at 1940's);

Motorway at E4 Essingeleden in 1966 when it was opened. Look at the old police uniform that was used in Sweden in that time. The motorway was opened by the prime minister Tage Erlander who was prime minister in Sweden 1946-1969. This is still the important part of the motorway network in Stockholm.

Since then the empty median has been taken up by extra lanes, the southbound M5 to westbound N2 ramp has been removed and replaced by one at Raapenberg Road and the cooling towers at Athlone were demolished on 22 August 2010.

Wow the cape flats look so empty!

A documentary realized in 1977 about a truck trip from England to Doha, Qatar. Very interesting testimonies and images from the roads back then. The first episode presents the route from London to Istanbul, and is considered the "easy bit":

And the second part, from Istanbul to Doha, is considered the "difficult bit". It's just incredible how the roads in Turkey changed till now.

So the E94 now belongs to Turkey or another Southern Europe country.

E94 is now going from Corinth to Athens.

But in 1977 it was going from Klagenfurt to Dobreta turu Severin via Zagreb and Belgrade.

Today most part of the old E94 is replaced by E70, some parts by E61.

Lovely film with a lot of 1970s feeling.

And I noticed it was possible to see the low pressure sodium lights at the motorway in Belgrade.
