I've calculated the Brazilian motorway-(like) network totals around 7400 kilometers, two-thirds of that being in São Paulo state.

It's surprising some major Brazilian cities have no motorway network at all, like Salvador, Fortaleza, Brasília, Natal. These cities do have many 2x2 roads with some interchanges, but they are too substandard to be considered motorway(like).
The BR 101 works are almost done in Pernambuco, Paraiba and Rio Grande do Norte. Works are well under way in Alagoas and Sergipe however I'm not sure when they will be completed.

Overall Brazil has in total some 10,955 kilometers of at least 2x2 highways of which 4,624 kilometers are in Sao Paulo.

They're duplicating about 350 km between Goiânia, GO and Jataí (southwestern GO). It's quite advanced.

Carnival's eve and paulistas are descendo a serra, heading to the beach. 8,000 cars/per hour in the system Anchieta-Imigrantes just now. They estimate 500,000 cars will leave São Paulo metro area towards the beaches.

The Brazilian auto Market is very interesting

The network should be expanded further.
Highways and Subways are the key infrastructure projects to be implemented in this decade.



Geopolitically Hope you Brazilians can protect your beautiful country, especially Amazonia, from some northern presence.

What is happening in the Malvinas (the shameful U.K. presence in South America) is a good reason for Brazil to Strenghten its fleet,
also with some new good submarines.

Falkland Islands. This isn't a Taiwan/China situation, those islands are British by heritage and if the Argys want to claim otherwise, then let's have 1982 redux.

90% of Brazilians know nothing about Malvinas. And the vast majority of people who know, supports the British stance.

And about Amazonia, I'm not aware of any external threat.

He's talking about "Northern influence" as in the United States. Because we're so much more destructive then Venezuela, Bolivia, and those "friendly" nations.

dá um tempo!

Venezuela doesn't pay its debt to Petrobras; Bolivia sized Petrobras oil refineries; in Paraguay, they are invading farms owned by Brazilians for decades. Brazilian government, however, does nothing, on behalf of the "socialist solidarity of Latin America". Disgusting.

Anyway, let's get back to the thread! Map of São Paulo Rodoanel:


R7

West and South sections completed (96 km). East under construction (44 km) and North to be started (45 km). About 19 million people and 8 million cars are inside the ringway.

Geopolitics

Submarines?
The Brazilian government has got some (well known) plans about it (barracuda class).
If you dunno, Monsieur Sarkò will tell you something...
To keep a stretegic control on the so called "Amazônia Azul" is very important.
The "malvinas" are just an example of what could happen everywhere.
If you haven't any real power of deterrence.
So it's reasonable what Jose Alencar said some years ago.

Anyway let's take a look at the Brazilian photos.
That's really Much better than american debts or uk unemployment.

Salut



Ps

dear Yuri Andrade
There's a lot of shameful "Brazil Bashing" today in the Economist or FT.
May be you didn't even realized, yet. No "solidarity" at all.
Just Geopolitics.
