Potholes on a recently opened road, in a place that doesn't suffer from permafrost, can be originated often from one of three processes:
- improper drainage
- bad execution of the asphalt mix and its application
- pavement unsuitable for dynamic loads (weight put on them by roads of moving vehicles).

The last one can be critical, as the effects of overweight traffic on pavement durability are around the 4th power of weight.

I checked it out on Google Earth, it seems that most of Bauru - Piratininga was already completed by 2013.

Great pictures of Sao Paulo highways. Good looking as usual, wouldn't expect less from Sao Paulo's state of the art highways. The rest of Brazil and South America can learn from these highways.

eg: Love combination of red looking sand and highways, very unique.

another important road duplication, since the road connects the 4th largest metro in Brazil (Porto Alegre metro, 4 million people) and many other cities in the north of the state, to Pelotas (3rd largest municipality at the state) and Rio Grande, the most important seaport in the state.


this road was full of trucks all the time because of the port, so with a single lane in each direction, it was very dangerous AND full of jams.

the duplication works are 211 km long, between Porto Alegre and Pelotas. The map below is turned sideways (right is north, left is south)


I won´t spam the thread with photos, so here is the link to the main thread at the brazilian forums

PORTO ALEGRE


PELOTAS


RIO GRANDE

State-of-the-art? Many of the highways posted here are clearly substandard (at-grade junctions, sharp corners, steep grades). They look typical South American.

Looks like Sao Paulo is doing a good job duplicating the most important links on its road network, and this is good even if most of the roads are substandard (they work, and at a lower cost). But South America has little to learn from these roads.

Sao Paulo's main highways are built using the highest standards and utilize the latest technology for their construction. Of course, I was refering to this as these are the ones that should be used as a model.

South America as a whole is plagued with substandard highways but at least a country has top-tier highways and this should serve as a model.

Most São Paulo highways are of relatively high standard. For example, they have far fewer U-turns and uncontrolled access than many other twinned highways in South America. Just the other day I was looking at SP-225 and noticed even the most secondary (even unpaved) roads have access through interchanges.

Just look at this. A full diamond interchange with roundabouts, and the pavement ends within 100 m. It's only access to some farms.

São Paulo duplicated highways doesn't have at-grade junctions or at-grade U-turns. On the other hand, federal duplicated highways throughout the country does have these substandard features quite often.

Why Brazilian motorway openings aren't listed here?

I'm gonna guess because the people who post in that thread have no (accurate) data about highway openings in Brazil...

Someone who speaks Portoguese should do this job. There are dozens of opening from China but almost none from South America.

Everybody can contribute to it. It's not like a job or something. I, for one, have posted lots of stuff there.
