It´s really annoying this low spreed limit culture. A 100km/h limit in Rodoanel in SP or the 90km/h in the Red Line in Rio is quite a pain in the ass! But like we see here on the forum, it´s not our privilege. Netherlands, Australia, US also have this "problem"!

Brazil governor proposes 2nd highway linking Sao Paulo to Rio de Janeiro
2 September 2008

RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil (AP) - Sao Paulo Gov. Jose Serra is proposing the construction of a new 3.1 billion real (US$1.8 billion) highway linking Brazil's two biggest cities.

The new road could be ready for bidding in two years. It would run parallel to -- although six miles (10 kms) away from -- the Via Dutra road that currently connects Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.

Sao Paulo state transportation secretary Mauro Arce confirmed the proposal on Tuesday. He says Serra proposed the new road to Rio de Janeiro Gov. Sergio Cabral in a phone call last week.

The Brazilian newspaper O Globo says the proposal is unlikely to please NovaDutra. The company won the concession to run Via Dutra in 1996, investing heavily in improvements and maintenance.

Brazil has 11.000 kilometers of freeway according to wikipedia. That would make it one of the longest in the world.

From the top of my head:

1) USA
2) China
3) Spain
4/5) France / Germany
6) Brazil
7) Mexico?

11000km seems a big number, but thats far from whats needed

These second highway would seem similar to Carvalho Pinto/Ayrton Senna highway in Sao Paulo state.

I'd love to see Dutra without tolls, and a new and modern one, tolled. Who doesnt want to pay goes on Dutra.

A couple of questions regarding the road system in the Northern extreme of the country. Now that the international bridge is complete between Brazil and Guyana will BR-401 be paved from Bomfin to Boa Vista? Similar question regarding the stretch of the BR-156 from Amapa to the French Guinea border it is also unpaved. Since a bridge connecting the two countries will be complete by 2010 do we expect some work on the BR-156. Final question, has work begun on the BR-210? I think it's shameful that Brazil and Colombia don't have a viable road link to this day, these are the two largest countries in South America. As stated earlier it's important for Brazil to have adequate road links to all South American countries, not only does this help the local economy but the national one as well.

Thanks for indulging in my questions.

BR-401 is all paved. BR-156 is being paved, still missing about 400km. BR-210 is only planned but it's not being built and probably will never be because technical and environmental issues.

The only border countries without links to Brazil are Colombia and Suriname. And probably it won't be changed so soon! (There is a land border between Brazil and Colombia at Tabatinga(BR)/Leticia(CO) but the twin cities are isolated from the road networks of both countries.)

Ah, thanks for the info bro, it seems as if the information from the ministry of transport website is outdated. Do you know when the BR-156 will be completely paved? I can see why the BR-210 won't be built, it would literally cut across most of the Brazilian Amazon, but Manaus for example is not only the most important Northern city, it's an important city for the rest of the country! I mean is it possible to access to the city during the rainy season? I heard they began to pave the BR-319 but recently halted it due to environmentalists.

Suriname I guess it's understandable, out of all the South American countries I'd think that commerce and migration in general seems to be the smallest among Brazil's neighbors. But surely Colombia deserves one point of access.
