I thought so too but they drive on a "wrong side".

It might be somewhere in the Northern Europe. (?)

No, not correct. But you are warm. The location is only around 50 km away from Oranmore, and it's taken on a road that passes Oranmore as well...

And coincidentally, as you lot posted that pic, I was driving through there...

That's the Huguenot Tunnel on the N1 - eastern portal (straight ahead is Cape Town, behind you is Worcester).

The old mountain pass that the tunnel replaced (Du Toitskloof Pass) has a rather interesting history.

Interesting.

Pity the information isn't available in Afrikaans, that would read much easier for me (being Dutch).

The country shouldn't be hard to guess. But the road?

It's not A49, though I can see why you would think that. It looks rather similar.

A17 Dresden? I think they've built a new plant there and the A4 has 3 lanes. Other one I can think of is at Braunschweig, but that's a shitheap.
