Breathtaking views - Motorways

This thread is to find the best view/picture from a motorway/road! It could be from a bridge, or mountain, any other suggestions? All entries welcome

The National Road Authority (Vägverket) in Sweden hosts a competition every year called "Beautiful roads". In 2007 both of the winners were motorways:

Winner 1. The new Svinesund-bridge between Sweden and Norway.

Winner 2. The art in the Södra Länken tunnel system in south Stockholm, where each exit is decorated in some way. The idea behind the decorated exits - apart from making the tunnel a little less boring - is to help drivers remember their exit by something more than just an exit number.

There is only a bit of elevation in the southern part of the Netherlands, but I don't go there very often so I don't really know about scenic motorways there. In the northern part I would nominate the A7 when it runs over the Afsluitdijk. On a clear day it's really a beautiful drive

If you want to see the best selection of breathtaking motorways... go to the Albanian section. Here is a little teaser!

It's an inside joke for those who have been around this forum for a while.

Actually "strumatic" may refer to someone sick with Struma Lymphomatosa

Just that they aren't motorways. But then again, Struma isn't either.

Just for you then:

A7 - Section Afsluitdijk - Northern Netherlands

The Afsluitdijk is 35km long.

Actually those Albanian roads ARE full motorways but you just do not see the other side and it has not yet completely finished.
