The cut was probably cheaper to build and it is almost certainly cheaper to operate and maintain. The cut is also safer due to open-air dissipation of any crash effects, particularly of hazardous goods.

The natural rock median is certainly a nice touch, however any rough sections would increase the risk of errant vehicles snagging.

and the financial advantage over tunnel option can be higher by utilising the extracted material... (its a gratis quarry)

rock median: maybe it would be safer with crash barriers on it...

...or tunnel short sections (e.g. 30-50m) instead of cutting all...

this short tunneled sections would create natural bridges over the cuts...

but probably there are no large animals since there are no fence along the edge of the cut...

In my opinion the most impressive cut in Germany:



It's the A7 in Baden-Württemberg

Due to the geography, that highway always have problems with rocks falling in, i don't know about that section as i haven't used it, but probably it's the same, also the soil is said to be made of expansive clay, so it gets difficult also for the pavement :S

Near Valdez. Though this is not completely artificial, it was definately widened.
