An old picture to illustrate the old Motorway "class b" with blue signs and everything.


Since then this road is currently being widened to a proper motorway. At some point the 305 to Sandefjord lost it's "expressway" status, it's been crossed of the sign.

Anybody could explain the meaning of tank as main destination in this picture of the German A5 published in the 'Indian Concrete Journal' in 1938? I don't get to understand the point of using a tankstelle as main destination...

My guess is it's saying there's a Tankstelle 15 km ahead in Lorsch and one 39 km ahead in Darmstadt. The 24 km difference is roughly the distance between them. Based on the distances, the sign must be on the northbound side of the A5. I think the two dots represent the towns, as Lorsch is on the left (west) of the A5 and Darmstadt is on the right (east). But that being the case, the arrow diagram doesn't look right, because Lorsch should be on the bottom and Darmstadt on the top.

It must be A67

It must be on A67 because A5 ("Bergstraßen-Autobahn") was built after 1945.

I'm inclined to agree that the sign is indicating the distance to the nearest gas (petrol) stations. in this pic, they are located in Lorsch and Darmstadt.

1954 photos of A4 motorway near Eisenach (source + background story here).
I guess not much was done between 1945-54 so they show a genuine Reichsautobahn.

A 1965 photo of the end of A81 motorway in Germany as it stood in 1940.

Posted here, original pic taken from facebook.com/centrostoricofiat.

Extension of the A81 began in the late 1960's, together with A6 from the West.

posted this in the Canada highways thread a while ago, but thought it would be appropriate here.

Ontario Highway 401 in 1959 at Meadowvale Road, just outside of Toronto. Today this same stretch of highway is 14 lanes wide and has an AADT of over 240,000, making it one of the busier stretches of highway on the planet. It would not receive the Highway 401 designation for another couple of years, at the time of recording the highway was simply known as "The Toronto Bypass". Ironically this so called bypass is now the economic artery running through the heart of the city that has long since grown around it, roughly quadrupling in population since then.

Old and new stretch of A8 by Aichelberg:

Old RAB stretch built in the 1930's:




Cobblestone Autobahn in the 1930's:


And now:


In the 1950's:


In the 1980's traffic increase and trucks, cased this section to become a major source of accidents, because of its narrow and curvy configuration without hard shoulders, particularly slippery in winter:


So, it was decided instead to build a new, more straight Autobahn, 3X3 with hard shoulders:




The old and new section in 2011:

Some from Helsinki; all look so clean and you know like more colorful, in the color pictures of course

Constructing the first expressway in Finland, the Eastern Access (Kulosaari bridge and Kulosaari section), in Kulosaari (Helsinki) 1950



The old bridge in 1950, rush hour. Sörnäinen was back then an industrial area. Luckilly many buildings still stand there, though not the ones in the photo.



Mannerheimintie in 1949, the late 1950's, 1963 and in 1970, back when it was 3+3-laned and Greens didn't exist. It seems like it was, like the Esplanades, 3+3 from the late 1930's to 1999.






First 3+3-motorway in Finland, Lahti motorway, in 1970 and 1980




Esplanades in the early to mid 1960's, basing on the buildings. Back then 3+3.




Expanding works just starting to 3+3 and rush hour on the Kulosaari bridge in 1966



After expansion in 1972



Pitkäsilta bridge in Helsinki in 1965; later, it was expanded to 2+3 and again later downgraded to 2+2. It was the main access from the East to the city center until 1961



The new Hakaniemi bridge in 1970 and 1975. Constructed in 1961, Greens sadly are tearing such a massive element down.




Hakaniemi square, which was back in 1970 4+4



Construction of the Tuusula motorway in Helsinki with old road near the new one, 1960





Old Tuusula Road, 1950



Western Access, opened to traffic westbound in 1963, and after completion (1963-1965) in 1971




September morning in 1970 in Herttoniemi (E Access)



Eastern Access 1970 (Viikki interchange)




Eastern Access 1970 (Near Itäkeskus)




And from above



In 1970, the arrows of the signs in Finland pointed down, not up (Viikki interchange)



Morning rush before the metro line was built on E Access near Kulosaari bridge, 1971





Kulosaari interchange, 1971



E Access start at Sörnäinen, 1970



Sörnäinen, 1971





E Access in Sörnäinen, 1971



Merihaka, 1982



Bums drinking inside the central junction of E Access, 1971

I didn't know they were exporting them to Poland as well. I don't remember the Zastava cars on old photos from Poland.
