let them guess it a bit, you know that I like such sections as this one at the photo
this one is probably one of the 3 most famous in Europe (although one is gone to past recently)

Right, since no-one has posted anything new lately, here's one that's probably ridiculously easy...

My guess would be the N1 approaching the Huguenot Tunnel from the east (still quite some way away, as it becomes dual carriageway before reaching the tunnel entrance). It's not urban enough for that to be Table Mountain, but those mountains definitely remind me of Cape Town from what I can see of them.

I'm probably wrong, though, as I think the N1 has sealed shoulders (based on the fact that drivers along rural national roads in South Africa tend to move to the left to allow people to overtake). It's far more likely to be an R-class road, but I'm stumped as to which.

To solve the tunnel thing, it's Nasenfels Tunnel on A8 München - Stuttgart, Germany, built in the 1930's and 1940's during the Hitler era. Really nice piece of road architecture all the way down to the valley, originally put into operation bidirectionally, because the climbing carriageway on the other side of the hill wasn't finished until 1950's. Source in German

As for the SA road, sources say it has to be in Klein Karoo, RSA, but I can't find exact location, maybe someone will..

I think it's N7 or a minor road around Piketberg.

It's an R-class road indeed...

Another hint: think of agriculture. And Romans.

Who said that? It sounds logical to me that an entry tries to be guessed one way or another (by giving hints etc.), not just starting with a new one.

What about, if the previous one is not guessed correctly within 24 hours?
