A nice YouTube find - apparently a recent upload - of a 1987 drive on the GDR transit motorway A2 from Helmstedt (D) to West Berlin (first 10 minutes), and in the opposite direction (rest of video).



The description says parts of the audio recording (broadcast of car radio) had to be cut because of copyrighted music. We're in Germany after all!

I guess "autoput" is the Serbo-Croatian word and therefore it was used.

part of road that darko06 mentioned Zagreb - Božjakovina is still in use in original shape today between motorway exit Kraljevečki Novaki and Dugo Selo. and it is a horror to drive. but i ermember some 20 years ago through Dugo Selo that road wasn't even concrete, but made of granite stones. when i remember that horror, concrete doesn't seem to be too bad actually.
the road was build before WW2 because here is the photo of it from 1945. it was buit obviously for tanks.



this is today's shape.




interesting thing is that there were 2 concrete roads at western suburbia of Zagreb (direction Ljubljana). one was known "Autoput B&J" that is today's A3, and the second one is road Podsused - Bestovje - Samobor - Bregana. today most of that route is still concrete. and it probably has something with tanks again because in Bregana there was overhaul centre for tanks.

Don't know if this has been posted here before. It's a 1960s promo film of Tatra automobiles. Tatra and Skoda were one step ahead of all other Eastern-bloc car manufacturers and in the 1960s and 70s their products were different, but comparable in performance to Western ones. These particular machines were rear-engined V8 saloons with a quirky aerodynamic shape that make them look like some old amusement park attraction, and also surprisingly effective in all terrains.

There are some vintage Czechoslovak road scenes in this video. Perhaps some forumer could identify the locations; the dual carriageway at the beginning should be easy.

It is worth watching for the inept police and pretty girl

Too bad Tatra couldn't compete in luxury cars today... I always liked the later 613 :/

8:56 looks like this road

Btw. I am really angry with the driver. How could he dare to drive that beautiful car like this? We are actually planning to rent such car for our wedding.

The road at the begining is Strakonická street in Prague between Zlíchov and Lahovice Railroad bridge called as "Bridge of Intelligence" is visible there as well...

I found a YouTube channel with old videos from Spain.


Current B-30/AP-7 in Barcelona in 1977:


Reallignment of the N-634 between Unquera and Llanes (eastern coast of Asturias) in 1968.


Note the yellow center lines Spain used in the past (American influence?)

Shaky camera, but nice find. You were not allowed to stop along the GDR transit motorways, but I saw an episode of the german "tatort" detective tv-series where a westgerman driver faked a motorfailure by cutting of the fan belt of his car and calling a towtruck so he could sneak into the GDR illegally.

Was this possible in reality, what happend if your car broke down on the transit motorway ? where you allowed to stay in the GDR as long as your car was fixed or did the authorities tow it out of the GDR immediatelly ?
