Strange, this thread only shows 13 posts in the forum, while there are over 20.

How does one count this kind of motorways ???

Out of Lisboa (more than 30km) we only get:

A8 , A1 , A10 north of tejo

A10 , A13 , A6 , A2 south of tejo

A10 crossing the tejo precisely some 30km away from city borders

this leaves lots of motorways/freeways inside those 30km limit:

IC2 , IC16 , IC17 , IC19 , IC20 , IC21 , IC32 , A5 , A12 , etc

further away ... helll ... should I start counting all roads up to vladivostok ??? or just those that start inside Lisboa ??? if the second one is the rulling you can even leave out most of the roads in that list above since most roads begin in the city limits.

Two.

The 401 reaches Toronto and Montreal in the east.

It reaches London and Windsor (hopefully Detroit within a few years) in the west.

2- The only motorways in my city (the A17 and the A14). The A14 starts here and goes about 40km to Coimbra and the A17 goes past here.

Oh ye, I use the A41 to get home some times as well.

The three routes you mentioned aren't very long but they are 2x2.

Salamanca (Spain) has only two on service, the E-80 A-62 to Valladolid and Burgos (240km) and the same motorway to Portugal, but it ends at Ciudad Rodrigo (92km). U/C is the E-803 A-66 to Cáceres and Sevilla (17km open, 61km U/C, supposed to be open before 31 dec 2008), the A-66 to Zamora (13km will open on july, 47km U/C, supposed to be open before 31 dec 2008), and the A-50 to Ávila (5.5km open, 87km U/C, supposed to be open befrore 31 dec 2008).
All of them 2x2, except the shared part of the by-pass (shared by A-66 and A-62) which is 2x3.
National grade roads are the N-620 (east) that reaches Tordesillas (parallel to the E-80 A-62 Motorway), it runs for 91km, the N-620 (west) that reaches Portugal (parallel mostly to the E-80 A-62 Motorway), that runs for 111km, up to the frontier, the N-630 (south) that reaches Cáceres, and Sevilla (parallel mostly to the E-803 A-66 Motorway), that runs for 500 or so km, the N-630 (north) that reaches Zamora, León and Gijón (parallel mostly to the A-66 Motorway), that runs for 343km, and the N-501 that reaches Ávila (parallel to the U/C A-50) after 95km.
All of them 2x1.
Autonomic roads are the CL-510 that reaches Piedrahita, in Ávila, it runs for 90km (there are plans to convert the first 17km to expressway or motorway), the CL-512 that reaches Linares de Riofrio, it runs for 40km, and the CL-517 that reaches Portugal, it runs for 105km (there are plans to convert it to half profile motorway (vía rápida)).
All of them 2x1

this is mighty thick thread. and why the 30km? some freeways are much bigger than others. the main ones out Durban are 8 lanes, but then u have the smaller ones which are just 2.

lol this could be the most pointless, no one knows what it means thread ever. well done
