Where I am, the longest stretch of Motorway near where I live, is from the ferry terminal at Horseshoe bay, to the Jct. of 1/5. That's a distance of some 398km. For Canada though, one would have to look to Eastern Canada.

That's not motorway, huge parts still aren't dual-carriageway, and, apart from that, parts that are dual-carriage, still have intersections with trafficlights, and even worse, levelcrossings.

It's 759.6 km long.
I'd like to mention also the A14 Bologna-Rimini-Ancona-Pescara-Foggia-Bari-Taranto, which is only a few km shorter (743.4 km)

Autostrade numbering has really no sense in Italy. It's not chronological, nor alphabetical, not even by length or by direction...

And, by the way: there is no A17, because 17 in Italy is bad luck number

Yep. In a hotel I stayed near Firenze (Florence) there weren't rooms 113 or 117. For me Italian motorways has a chronological order...
@ChrisZwolle, the Southern part of A1, Rome-Naples, was A2.

As for Spain, the longest motorway is currently A-6 (With a toll section through the central range, obviously named AP-6), with 600 continuous km.
A-7 will be longer: When it is finished (If they build that), it will be almost 1300 km long.

No, it was built in the sixties, but the other autostrade I mentioned were built in the twenties and thirties...

Perhaps A1 was named because it was the longest and most important, linking the two major Italian cities (Milan and Rome). In fact the A2 linked Rome with the third Italian city, Naples (later A2 was absorbed into A1).

Probably since the late sixties the numbering became chronological... I dunno...

Hat about this very old Europe road E40? Has everyone forgot it? I think it's the longest in whole of Europe...

From wiki:

Quote:
European route E 40 is the longest European route,[1] more than 8000 km long, connecting Calais in France via Belgium, Germany, Poland, Ukraine, Russia, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, and Kyrgyzstan, with Ridder in Kazakhstan near the border to China.
Ofcourse it also passes trough Asia

France: Calais - Dunkerque
Belgium: Veurne - Bruges - Ghent - Brussels - Leuven - Ličge - Eupen
Germany: Aachen - Cologne - Gummersbach - Olpe - Siegen - Wetzlar - Gießen - Bad Hersfeld - Herleshausen - Eisenach - Gotha - Erfurt - Weimar - Jena - Gera - Chemnitz - Dresden - Bautzen - Görlitz
Poland: Zgorzelec - Legnica - Wrocław - Opole - Gliwice - Katowice - Jaworzno - Kraków - Tarnów - Rzeszów - Korczowa
Ukraine: L'viv - Dubno - Rivne - Zhytomyr - Kiev - Lubny - Poltava - Kharkiv - Slovyansk - Debaltseve - Luhans'k
Russia: Kamensk-Shakhtinsky - Volgograd[1] - Astrakhan' (Russian route M21 and Russian route M6)
Kazakhstan: Atyrau - Beyneu
Uzbekistan: Kungrad - Nukus
Turkmenistan: Daşoguz
Uzbekistan: Buchara - Samarkand - Jizzakh - Tashkent
Kazakhstan: Shymkent - Taraz
Kyrgyzstan: Bishkek
Kazakhstan: Korday - Almaty - Sary-Ozek - Taldykorgan - Usharal - Taskesken - Ayagoz - Georgiyevka - Öskemen - Ridder




I tried to take the whole road on maps but maps almost crashed trying to do that...
Has anyone else a better way?
