Oh yeah, I thought you meant posting... looked too fast.

It's a vicious circle. An American motorway is usually guessed by an American, who usually continues with another American motorway. When it finally gets to a European motorway (f.e.), it's the same story, and European motorways don't stop.

Part of it probably due to that Europe has over twice the population of NA.

That motorway sure does have many lanes, are the outer ones a separate motorway or is there for entry/exit purposes? Does it make a big capacity difference to have those extra lanes instead of just singular exit and entry ramps?

Big time. The express (inner) lanes are normally much faster in rush hour because you lose a lot of cars from that series of exits to the local lanes.

There haven't been many pictures recently, so here's one to keep the main point of the thread going.

The road markings in the exit lanes are quite unusual. I sure hope they aren't going to leave it like that.

@Majestic: Correct! I think that that portion is not opened yet, but is supposed to open in a few days.
