Does anyone have any pictures from Uruguay's roads?

It looks like they're using Australian highway shields.

Thanks.  I want to visit the Southern Cone very badly. I have an undergrad degree in Spanish and had a professor from Uruguay.  Her brother imported used cars into Uruguay

Today I visited the famous Laguna Garzón bridge. Opened in 2015, it separates traffic into two separate spans that form a ring over the water. This slows traffic as it moves through an ecologically sensitive area with pedestrians.

I’ll post video and photos as soon as I’m not working from only a cell phone, but in reality everything I took from the ground pales in comparison to the aerial shots anyway.

I could beat you to the punch and post your video, but I'm just thrilled you got to go there. I did not rent a car in Uruguay so my photos are limited to my downtown walks and the bus window.

Without further ado, here's my video of crossing the bridge on August 30, 2023.

^This looks like something I would have thought in my fictional highways brain as interesting, but also something I could have never imagined actually being built.
