This one features THE HILL. And not the one of "Bliss" .

If we don't restrict ourselves to dual carriageways then we're all screwed...

Heck, those of us who aren't from the Balkans would be screwed if we were actually keeping score....;-)

No guesses? Some hints: I think I should have put the pic upside-down, and the hill has a really really long name .

Well, I have one pic already waiting on-line, so I'd take a shot
http://goo.gl/maps/u29eW
BTW nice one ... the previous was more tricky though, mostly because of the rotation - north wasn't on the top as the rules say :/ nevermind

Next


And we're back in northern hemisphere again

Green median ... I'm still wondering if this is a dual carriageway or not, the central divider is not flat but pretty rough to avoid drivers crossing the central line...

Dimming pannels on the edge of the road (and not between the 2 carriageways)... this is strange.

The intention is/was to protect the car drivers from the train headlights and the train drivers from the car lights. But that's a "long shot", since both the light and the driving cab of the train are well above the protection provided by those dimming panels. Nice try though

It's not the only location in Romania where the road is right next to the track and where the car drivers more likely to blind the train drivers with the long distance lights.

It's a single track, with traffic lights for both ways. Actually it's the main line 200 Brasov - Sibiu.
