I think "highway" is ok. It's not a specific term. "motorway" is a kind of "highway". Maybe it's "superhighway"

I think these terms have a transcontinental difference.


I agree.  "Highway" is OK, too.  There are many local (not just transcontinental) variations in how "gaosu gonglu" are called, and they are not always used in strict accordance to what dictionaries (especially abridged or less up-to-date ones) say.

highway is right.

Of all my years in America, I have never seen anyone say motorway, or super highway.

maybe freeway, but not those two.


You can choose to use either highway or freeway.

There's the NAFTA superhighway, and most important of all, there's the information superhighway -- although we can't really drive our cars on them!

There are superhighways in Europe:

Maybe what you said is right ,  but I'm confused. How to say 普通公路? If we don't differentiate it with 高速公路?

普通公路:Roads.  如果在市区以外,有时候也可以叫做 highway.  有些词的用法并不是一成不变的。

road 应该是所有路的总称吧
