It is probably for U-turn purposes. Many dual carriageways of Brazil are not full freeways, but have right-in, right-out interchanges. If you want to make a left turn, you have to enter the highway to the right, and then make a U-turn up ahead.

This solution is better than what you commonly see in South America, U-turns in the median, often with very little space to decelerate, turn and accelerate.

Exactly, most 4-lane brazilian highways are class 1, without full access control. This is a historic question, government decided to duplicate existing roads instead of building new parallel motorways. I hope that, in the future, concession contracts requires progressive full access control, by building local roads, new intersections and so on.

But probably green means a new dual-carriageway, Blue means under construction dual-carriageway and pink means a future dual-carriageway.

Still, there is an unnecessary design flaw over there: that junction is only used for U-turns (at least on its present configuration), yet traffic on opposing directions must cross path to turn left on the overpass. Until a day when/if they build a proper exit out of that junction to other roads, they should use inverted flows on the overpass, so that traffic in both directions wouldn't have any conflict.

Eastern section of São Paulo ringroad (missing the last tier to Dutra Highway, still U/C) is already on the Google Maps for few days now:

I wonder which criteria if any Google is using to set apart the dark orange marked roads from the yellow ones.

Quite random criteria, apparently. Half of Spain's motorway network is shown with yellow lines.

Although Google Maps is fairly up-to-date, the way motorways are shown is one of the worst of all online mapping systems.

I find it annoying. I like a lot Guia 4 Rodas where they make a clear distinction between simple(?) highways and 2x2 (or more) ones.
