Which E-road would be the longest if you look at Europe as one big country? I still doubt we'll be able to beat America in this one though Oh well ^_^

EDIT: just checked Wikipedia. The E60 seems to be the longest (though I'm not sure whether it's really continuous nor do I know whether it has any gaps): 6200 km (3875 miles)
Distance source: this page on Wikipedia

Greetings,

Just found out about the E40 as well I must have overlooked it. The specific page about the E40 says it's "only" 8000 km though. So I'm not sure which of the two is correct...

Only a short part of E40 is motorway though. And most of it lies in Asia anyway.

It seems about half of it is motorway indeed. Around 100km into Poland it becomes a national road indeed :/ And in the following countries it's no motorway either.

EDIT: make that a quarter instead of half the length.

Probably it's the BR-101, a north-south highway. But I'm not sure if it's considered a motorway in all streches, as it's not in good traffic conditions everywhere, it's not even 4 lanes in the whole path.

The M6 is still under construction at its northern end so its construction dates should be 1958 - present

Also, you could argue the A74(m)/M74 is part of the M6 as it's all the same road and the A74(M) bits are patched over signs saying M6!

So, in the UK, the longest motorway is the M6/A74(M)/M74 - same road, three numbers!

2 Section are under construction.Section A is the Maliakos Bay.And Section B the Tembi-Valley.
And 1 Section from interchange Axios to Boarder Evzoni-F.Y.R.O.M (MK) about 30km is not a Motorway.
The A-1 (E-75) is 560km long from the Border Evzoni to Athens/Pireas.
