2. M56 Lena Highway, Russia
The M56 Lena Highway, which connects the towns of Skovorodino and Yakitsk in eastern Siberia, is nicknamed “the Highway from Hell.” Although it is a federal road, its surface is dirt, not asphalt—so while it performs excellently in winter, when the surface is frozen over, the rains of summer turn it into an impassable mud pit. Motorists may be bogged down for days, waiting for the surface to dry enough for them to continue on their way.
