It's the DMZ Freeway.



The city in the distance is Ilsan boomtown, one of those huge suburbs of Seoul.

Wow. I thought you'd get there first, but not that quickly.

It's road number 23 from Seoul to Gaeseong and the DMZ.

I had a hard time finding more information about that road on google. In fact, the name DMZ expressway only came up in the picture you linked to above.

I also found this pic, where the road is signed as 77 instead of 23.

Also in Seoul there are differences between google maps and actual signage of road numbers.

Do you happen to have more information on that?

This road, albeit being up to Expressway standards, is not included in the Korean Expressway system. It's a national road. There are quite some roads in South Korea that are in fact motorways (like the 70 and 88 in Seoul) but are not designated as an Expressway.

I also have no idea why they do show in Google Maps, but not in Google Earth.

No way, the landscape is not so mountainous there.

I'd say Autoroute Blanche (and I'll probably be wrong).

You guys are too good at this!
By the time I've figured out which continent we are talking about, someone has already come up with the answer.

I've got something so average that only true road geeks will guess where it is:



Believe it or not, there are (at least) two significant clues in the picture, which give the game away.

I'm sure it's Belgium. Lamppost style and concrete surfaced road should give an idea of when this highway was built.

snowman159 and khawa - how do you do it?

Not only did you guess the right continent (Europe) but also you are in the right ballpark (BeNeLux).
But to get your 10 points I need to know the road number and for another 10 points, the location.

E314 near Genk?

The pavement and traffic density looks Belgian, but the crash barriers and lampposts are more Dutch.
