You got it. Interesting piece of road, it's 7 lanes with no physical separation, even though it apparently has motorway status, suggested by the (M) number.

You didn't erase "Park Circus" from your map. :-) So it was a matter of Googling. Although my first guess was Australia....

I'm on the road today; don't have time to think of something and then find it. Chris, can you post something interesting?

That's a layer from Google Earth. It's not an international border.

Two details?

On the left seems to be a railway

On the right there is a parking. Is it near a shopping centre, a city...?

It is just south of a town with apx 6000 inhabitants.
To the left is a railroad, the parking lot has nothing to do with a mall.

Got it. It's a former toll road, that's why you see the weird ramps. Probably two ramps were added later.

How do you know it is a former toll road?

Ramps are really weird... but where could it be the toll barrier?

No, not in western Europe.
Right hand driving is correct.

I like to research roads. I know the location and some of the history of this road.

I doubt if people will be able to find it without hints. I'm also interested how aswnl came to this location, it's not very obvious. There are a number of curious interchanges along this former toll road.

When scrolling GE for your last picture (in Jackson), I just viewed this parkway (...another hint...).

In the Spanish forum we have also a thread to find a road. It is harder as well as roads can be only of the country (to consider you have guess it you may put a link or exact point and all photos are taken from street view, not street maps).

I remember that there was a forumer specialized in geology... and he guessed several ones because rocks or land around the road.

The hardest photo guessed by him was a half new national road. It wasn't finished in the moment of the photo and I chose the part with white lines instead of yellow lines.
I said the area as a hint and that it was a national road (as well as roads were harder it was required to write several hints) and... this forumer guessed it in several minutes even if it had a trick (a national road but not finished, only several kilometres on service)

I asked how did he do it and he answer he looked to the ground around the road and it the town besides was the only area he knew with them... so he looked 20 km around and found it easily.


Amazing!!!
