You can see the pipes there.

Nice pic ... Socialist road design and maintenance greets you ... and still Hungary was above the (comparably wealthy) GDR in this regard

Nice thread.
Where was building the first modern road of the world with asphalt? or the first highway?

It's interesting how relatively recent the road is, but already terrible

But, they did fix it sort of by putting the asphalt!
I guess they did not properly form the sub-base below the concrete and the frost-cycle sent them into "staircase" like the Polish road Nr. 18

First road for motor-vehicles only (1+1, undivided, grade-separated): Autostrada dei Laghi between Milan and Varese, Italy (today A8).
First 2+2 motorways:
- A555 Cologne-Bonn (1932, without median)
- A5 Frankfurt-Darmstadt (1935, with median)

I don't know when the first road with asphalt was built, but it was probably in the early 1900s, and this material became of standard usage in the 1920s/1930s.

In real life, electronic toll collection was first introduced in Bergen, Norway in 1986, and well into the 21th century many countries still struggle to implement it.

The Long Island Motor Parkway had those characteristics and opened in 1908.

Yeah, that's true.
But if consider the conceptual idea THAT (Autostrada dei Laghi) was the first motorway. Conceptual by mean of an apposited dedicated toll-road

Italy was the first country in Europe that developed hig-standard toll roads, exclusively for fast traffic - even if they weren't real motorways in today's sense.

But the New York area also developed its first parkways in the early 1920s. At first these were four-lane divided highways to parks and beaches outside of the city. They gradually evolved into controlled-access highways, it's difficult to pinpoint which one exactly was the first fully controlled-access highway, most sources indicate the early-to-mid 1930s. Greater New York had a huge network of controlled-access 4-lane highways by the late 1930s.

Some photographs, not much historical, but I think it could fit this topic.
