The longest motorway in your country

I'll start with my country, Germany, and the Autobahn 7.

It runs all the way from the Danish border to just a few kilometers north of Austria. 945.6 km Germany! On it's way it passes six states of Germany: Schleswig-Holstein, Hamburg, Niedersachsen, hessen, Bayern and baden-Württemberg.




It passes the world's busiest channel on Km 60:






Just 100km further down we're in Hamburg and have to get past the Elbe river:



Other side of the tunnel:



The A7 is a road of superlatives in Germany: Out of the Elbtunnel, we see the biggest harbor of Germany, are driving on the longest bridge and are seeing the second longest bridge in germany:




Without any speed limit in Niedersachsen, enjoy it:



For trucks in troubles: Just at the border between northern and central Germany.




Scenery in my home state, hessen Start of the eastern part of the A 4 that runs to the Saxon - Polish border.





Svabian engineering in Baden-Württemberg:





End in southern Bavaria:












Post the longest motorways of your country!

I think the longest continuous motorway in the Netherlands is the A2, which is app. 200 kms long. The longest motorway in the Netherlands is the A7, which is 236 kms long, but interrupted a few times (Sneek and Groningen). The A7 goes from Zaandam to Hoorn-Zurich-Sneek-Groningen-Nieuwerschans and finally enters Germany where it becomes the BAB 280.

-edit-
A few A7 pics:

Funny, I've seen both ends of the I-90, and the small section between Missoula, MT and Spokane, WA, but nothing in between

I'd love to drive it from start to end in future

For me it was the most beautiful motorway i've ever been on. Especially when you're in northern Italy at night when all the streets are illuminated.

It's not bad, provided there's no fog.

The longest continuous motorway in Slovenia is A1 - 225 km. Together with 12 km a little further, the A1 is 237 km long as of now.

The Spanish A-7 isn't continuous, even if you count the AP-7 as part of it there's quite a gap of some 60-80 kms between Nerja and Adra on the south coast. The A-7 by itself is nowhere near being completed.

And what? The motorway doesn't necessarily have to be continuous. The A7 in the Netherlands is also not continuous, there are some gaps in between. The question is not what the longest continuous motorway in your country is.

The longest motorway in Hungary is the M3 between Budapest and the Nyíregyháza 236 Km and there is a section between the city and the Slovak border which is missing about 60-70 Km. So when the M3 is completed around 2013-´15 will be the longest around 300 Km.

Well, in Norway our motorways aren't numbered, but the E6 corridor would have the most: approx 100 kms south of Oslo and 50 north of Oslo (couldn't be bothered to find the exact figures today...). In addition, about 10 kms of grade-separated dual-lane carriageway.

Longest Motorway in Switzerland is the A1, reaching from Geneva(west) to St.Margreten (east). with lenght of 410 km

It is also the most important.
