List of highways in Iraq

Iraq has a network of highways connecting it from the inside among the Iraq provinces and to the outside neighbouring countries: Iran, Turkey, Syria, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. When Saddam visited the United States in the 1980s, he was impressed by the size and infrastructure of the highway system. He ordered his engineers to build highways in the American form - wide lanes, shoulders and clover leafs.
