[BR] Brazilian highways

Hi, I'm Brazilian and would like to show you some highways I passed coming back from the summer vacations, last month (january 2006).

This is BR-040, between Juiz de Fora and Rio de Janeiro.


BR-116, called Via Dutra, a highway that links the two biggest Brazilian cities (Sao Paulo and Rio)


Getting closer to Sao Paulo




Partial view of Sao Jose dos Campos city


Inside Sao Jose dos Campos, with lanes for local traffic


Now in Rodovia dos Bandeirantes (Bandeirantes Highway), that links Sao Paulo to Campinas, an important city in Sao Paulo State






An intersection


Well, I have some more pics that will be posting soon. Hope you enjoy it. Brazilian highways aren't like the gigantic American and European ones, but I like them!

The state of Victoria has about 1000km (including current freeway construction) of Freeways/double lane highways comprising of Melbourne's freeway network and rural expressways linking the city to major regional towns. At the moment, several freeway projects are underway to complete the network. If you want pictures, see "show your country's highway/motorway network" thread.

Via Dutra getting close to Sao Paulo city downtown, pretty wide:




This is a pic I found on net showing Dutra highway system with local traffic lanes. It seems to be near Sao Paulo too



Now some pics showing Imigrantes highway, Sao Paulo - Santos. There are impressive bridges built to cross the mountain range (Serra do Mar). I didn't have the opportunity to travel in them yet, so this pics are from internet sites.

The Rodoanel ("roadring") project, made to connect all the federal and state highways leading to Sao Paulo and reduce traffic in the congested avenues and expressways of the city. Until now the only finished part is the west one (Trecho Oeste), which is assigned with yellow in the map.









Some more pics

Well, to be true, most of the brazilian highways are far worse than these. Sometimes you drive by an excellent highway, on the same leval of a middle intestate, than, you have to drive in roads with african levels...

Really? I have never noticed it! Why don't you post a pic of an african level Brazilian highway? We would love to see it.

Looks like the African-level roads ruined the thread. Great pix btw!

Tell me sth, how many kms of freeways/expressways/motorways... (min 2 lanes in each direction, limited access) does Brazil have? According to Map24 tens of thousands of kms what I seriously doubt, no offense, especially in Amazonia lol! Any experts?
