Roads in Australia
In the country, different standards of roads are generally called by different names. But the name of a road does not reflect the construction or capacity of a particular road.
Also, all the roads mentioned below are visible on the map.
1. Freeways, motorways, expressways, and tollways
Freeways are designed for higher speed operations and have more than one lane of traffic in each direction. They have barriers to separate traffic traveling in opposite directions. Motorways and tollways are some toll roads that avoid perceived difficulties with charging people to use a freeway.
Victoria, the smallest mainland state in the country has the most extensive major arterial (freeway) network including tollways.
The Australian national highway network links the capital cities of each state and other major cities and towns. It is financed by the Australian Federal Government with the bulk of funding coming from the individual states.
Many other highways and roads include Metroads, National Routes, State Routes and routes numbered according to the Alphanumeric Route Numbering System.
3. Minor Roads
All other small roads are maintained by local governments and connected with rural areas and streets in towns and suburbs. They generally have a 50 km/h speed limit and are illuminated at night by street lighting.
