BR-277 Paranaguá - Foz do Iguaçu - Paraná state

This road crosses east-west Paraná for 730 km, from the coast where stands a major seaport at Paranaguá to the triple border with Paraguay and Argentina at Foz do Iguaçu. It's an important link to Paraguay since the country is landlocked and uses Paranaguá as it's main commerce channel.

Begin in Paranaguá







The Serra do Mar mountains. It extends for almost all south/southern regions of the country, separating the coast from the highlands.













Winter in Brazilian highlands may be frosty!!











Paraná Road Police







After Ponta Grossa, it becames a single highway until near Foz do Iguaçu.



















Near Foz, double carriageway.





Buildings in the background are Ciudad del Este, Paraguay



Near the border, starts a big mess. Next year will begin the construction of another bridge and border complex outside the core of the twin cities. By now, it's dirty, full of people, smugglers, old cars...

Last exit on the highway before the border.



Last KM



Border Complex



The infamous Friendship Bridge, between Foz do Iguaçu-Brazil and Ciudad del Este, Paraguay.

I'm having a déjà vu. Once I saw in Switzerland a bus with Brazilian license plates.

This is the downside of the brazilian roads: most of them don't have fences, guardrails and go up and down due to saving costs. Some of them has problems like animals on the road, others are too suscetible to the weather as rain flood and fallen barriers.

It's a valley and the photo is looking downhill. So the grade is not all that appears to be!

SP-270 Raposo Tavares highway

It begins in São Paulo (city) and continues westward for 664km until the border with Mato Grosso do Sul state.



In São Paulo. Very crowded and completely jammed in rush hours. Here it's used mainly for commuting between western metro and central regions.














Some kms out SP metro, it becomes a single road. There's no much traffic on it's rural parts because for long travels, SP-280 is more used since it runs parallel to it and is full motorway.














Less than 40km from the suburbs of a 20 million metro area!!








Near Sorocaba, it becames a double carriageway again.

















After Sorocaba, it goes by a very rural region and alternates single lane, double carriageway and 4 lane without divide.

















There are a lot of eucalyptus planted forests for timber and paper industries. This red soil is predominantly on this part of the country and is known for being very fetile.











Normally when it crosses a city or an important junction, the road becomes a double carriageway.











At it's end on the Paraná river, border between the two states. The road continues on a 11km bridge/causeway and becomes BR-267, a federal jurisdiction road.











Yes, it's a river!!!
