Is the chaos and on-going violence in Syria encroaching into Lebanon now?

How many km of motorway are in Lebanon?
In 2005 they had only 170 km. Today is the same?

Not much has changed since 2005 when it comes to the total length of the network. The coastal highway was extended by 6km towards the city of Sour/Tyre in the south of the country.

An expressway also opened linking Beirut with the town of Baabdat (see link http://goo.gl/maps/bgBWJ)

However, many grade separation projects are completed/underway within the greater Beirut area as well as the rehabilitation of the international road to Damascus, with parts in the Bekaa valley being constructed as motorway (should be complete during 2014 according to the Lebanese Council of Development and Reconstruction). Also a partial ring road around the northern city of Tripoli is under construction. All these are visible in Google Earth imagery.

No not finished yet and I would like to know who is the smart architect that designed both the Fiyadieh Bridge and the siyad intersection. Not only are they not functioning properly but they are downright dangerous.

I was informed by one airport staff that I can catch buses to city from "main road " which is 10 min walk from airport terminal, so I followed her advice.. But when I walkedalong main road, I found that I had to cross a busy highway interchange to get to main road, which is really dangerous and suicidal thing to do, so I decided to take a taxi from that location.. which costs me USD 15 For such a short distance




Beirut airport terminal.. pretty small airport

That said, Beirut has nice corniche and great beaches with crystal clear water , with stunning mountanous landscape where many Beirutis build their homes with beautiful view towards Mediterranean. The people are hospitable.
