Dual Carriageway
A DUAL CARRIAGEWAY ( British English
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

Tram-train
A TRAM-TRAIN is a light-rail public transport system where trams run through from an urban tramway network to main-line railway lines which are shared with conventional trains. This combines the tram's flexibility and accessibility with a train's greater speed, and bridges the distance between main railway stations and a city centre. There is also a train-tram, which is a train modified to also run on tramlines. Generally, the tram-train and train-tram are interchangeable, although a train-tram is based on a train design modified to also run as a tram and a tram-train is based on a tram design modified to also run on a train line
