Four lane roads in african towns

Most African countries no motorways or highways however, in the main cities may find the roads with four or more lanes, usually approach roads cities often in good condition. Here are map examples of some cities.

Most african countries are much bigger than your usual European country and should ideally be with motorways. To get from one end of your country to the other end on even 1X1 highways must be a nightmare, it must be like crossing the whole of Europe on motorways.

Africa is 3 times Europe or 85 times Germany in area

Europe just look big on the maps because of the latitude lines being stretched out. When you look on Europe on a globe you'll see that Europe is "small".

I am positively surprised by the amount of motorways in Nigeria, but Nigeria is a very populated country, so I guess they need it.

As far as I know, Nigeria's infrastructure (both road and rail) are in bad conditions and in desperate need of repair.

Nigeria has a population of 140 million which is expected to explode to 290 million in 2050.

Yes, I am surprised when I saw that cities such as Benin City, Port Harcourt,Kaduna have over a million inhabitants, 10 cities with over half a million, and Lagos, Kano and Ibadan are previously known as the metropolis. But the idea of this topic is how to classify highways or four lane roads in African cities, can be applied the principle of categorization by European standards

And how much of that land is actually feasible for living?

Not much... mostly deserts or inaccessible jungles. But most African population is still rural. A country like the DRC (Congo) has only a handful of bigger cities yet a population of like 65 million.

My statement was merely for understanding the travel distances. I mean Germany got good roads, but still you use quite some time to drive through all of Germany.

No, he said four lane roads. That means 2 lanes each way. It also doesn't mean "motorway".
