A'ight. Since there's been a lot of border crossings/toll plazas lately, here's what you got. (and, as an exception, Chris is allowed to guess this time, know my kindness )

Doesn't look like a border crossing, must be a toll plaza. Europe?

All I can say now is that it's one of the most scenic routes in the country, running through a beautiful, mountainous territory. Despite being tolled, the motorway has poor pavement quality in most sections and in need of renovation.

That one isn't even charged. And is probably concrete all the way.

Which continent? Does the motorway have 6 lanes for a longer distance, or just here?

It normally has 4 lanes and concrete pavement in most sections. Although the motorway itself looks european, it's outside Europe.

Yeah, but do you know any toll road in mountainous area that is close enough to a large city to be covered on Virtual Earth Birds Eye View? Especially in the US, the most scenic roads are in the rocky mountains, which are toll free.
