2 lanes. That rules out much of E40 and E17. E403 perhaps?

You're spot on, well done. How did you do that?

Sorry it took so long for me to reply. I was in Italy all day. It never ceases to amaze me: Load of roadworks in the Bologna area, been there for years, and you never actually see anybody doing anything...

I saw the Euro-bordersign, and the first lamppost was obviously Belgian, the posts after that weren't however. The white line in the middle of the sign was too long for the text "France", and German Autobahns usually don't have lampposts. So it had to be one of the 5 B-NL freeway borders. Checking the A4/A12 border, I saw the road setup, gantries, etc, were exactly the same. That was when I was sure.


Next location, should not be too difficult...

You know, it's sentences like that that make me jealous, sometimes, of people who live in Europe....

You spotted something on the horizon, well ?
(Yes, it is near Kaapstad)

Now tell me the exact location...

Yes, it's the interchange between the N1 and the R300 (Kuilsrivierweg).
Link: http://maps.google.nl/maps?hl=nl&ll=...253.34,,0,6.81

Question out of curiosity: north of this interchange the complete RoW of an extended R300 can be found to Vierlanden Heights. Why has this road never been built ?

Woohoo!
Now, I'm taking my time looking for something obscure, but not too obscure. And not European. Probably. [laughs evilly]

I've got something, but I'm having trouble (not having done this before) cropping out or obscuring the signs. Patience, everyone. :-)

Damn! I was looking forward to people guessing, like, Australia.

Need an exact location, please. :-)

But at least we have a non-European winner. Nothing against Europeans or Europe, mind you, but the rest of us were starting to be at a disadvantage.

Agreed.

You still didn't give me the exact location. Or at least the road. But we'll let that go.

However, for the record, and for those looking at the photo and thinking, "they drive on the left in Canada??" that's on Autoroute 20, somewhere between here - http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&ll...,0.027423&z=15 (the junction with Highway 138) and the Turcot interchange a bit to the northeast, where the eastbound and westbound roadways switch sides, for reasons no one seems to know. The photo I found is actually better than the one I was trying to hide the signs in, because at this angle you don't notice the railway yards in between the two roadways.

At least you beat Chris to it, probably because it's the middle of the night over there. :-)

Somewhat weirdly the only reason I knew its in Montreal was because of the street lights in the middle of the median.

More North America (repost from last page):
