Dual Carriageway
A DUAL CARRIAGEWAY ( British English ) or DIVIDED HIGHWAY (American English ) is a class of highway with carriageways for traffic travelling in opposite directions separated by a central reservation . Roads with two or more carriageways which are designed to higher standards with controlled access are generally classed as motorways , freeways , etc., rather than dual carriageways. A road without a central reservation is a single carriageway regardless of the number of lanes. Dual carriageways have improved road traffic safety over single carriageways and typically have higher speed limits as a result. In some places, express lanes and local/collector lanes are used within a local-express-lane system to provide more capacity and to smooth traffic flows for longer-distance travel

Australia
and parts of the United States
United States
and Canada), MOTORWAY (in the United Kingdom, Ireland and New Zealand) and EXPRESSWAY (some parts of Canada, parts of the United States, and many Asian countries). Other similar terms include _Interstate _ and _parkway _. Some of these may be limited-access highways , although this term can also refer to a class of highway with somewhat less isolation from other traffic. In countries following the Vienna convention , the motorway qualification implies they are forbidden for walking or parking, and reserved for the use of motorised vehicles only. A controlled-access highway provides an unhindered flow of traffic, with no traffic signals , intersections or property access
