Why is the Czech D1 so wide there?

D1 and Polish A1 aren`t connected yet. On D1 Belotin-Ostrava - there is mostly local traffic. Transit goes through Cieszyn (D1/R48).

The section starts where D1 (Brno) and R35 (Olomouc) meet and run concurrently to Bělotín where is a split of traffic to D1 (Ostrava) and R48 (Frýdek-Místek) + I/35 (Val. Meziříčí). So prediction showed that an additional lane is needed.

Shooting blind I'd say it's the A19 Palermo - Catania...

You're right.

I skipped Sicily for a while because I thought it was too dry, but it appears to be taken in the winter. You can see snow-capped mountains nearby.

Since mapman hasn't posted a new one, I'll present the next one:

Where in the world can we find this ?

Perhaps a hint.

A nearby motorway has a number with the prefix A.

I have no idea. The road markings appear European but it is much wider than most motorway airstrips I've seen. Only a few countries still operate motorway airstrips like Taiwan and Pakistan.

I think, first time I play here (Can anyone summarize me the rules, please?). I usually play in the "guess the road thread" of my country (where we try to find some really difficult roads, taking count that only roads of country can be posted)


Can it be somewhere near a border?

No, it's absolutely not near a border. However, there have been borderlike facilities some yards away from this place, until appr. 17 years ago...

There are some rules though. The one that guesses the picture first, is allowed to post the next one. When there is no response in say, 24 hours, anyone can submit a new one. No new ones should be submitted unless the previous one is guessed correctly within 24 hrs.

Some other rules:
> Hints are allowed
> The pic must have something recognizeable, no rural highways that could be anywhere, unless they feature something special.
> All kinds of pics are allowed, Googled, selfmade, Google Earth, Live Earth etc.
> Don't make it too hard to guess
> No Struma
> The North must be on the upper side of the picture.
> Remember people are from all parts over the world, so again, keep it recognizeable.
