The rank of the worst highway in the world belongs now to the Russian federal (!) road “Lena”.
The Russian line “Lena” connecting Moscow and Yakutsk, proudly takes in a rating of the most dangerous roads in the world the first place.
The “Lena” is not just in serious failure. This road appears practically washed away after each strong rain.

On the second place in this black list there is a line between the cities of La Pazs and Kopoyko (?) to Bolivia which local residents name not differently as “Road of death”. This narrow track lasts in mountains. There constantly there are landslips, cars quite often fall in breakage, and a condition of asphalt there simply disgusting.

The third place in the list of the most terrible lines is taken with the Military-Georgian road which connects Russia and Georgia. It differs not only the dangerous turns, but also that in the winter it almost always block because of avalanches.

Yakutia is the area of permafrost, and this road melts down to 1 meter every summer for 2…3 months (usually July and August) – that makes it impossible to build usual roads (using asphalt or concrete) there. Such roads are called “zimnik” (“zima” means “winter” in Russian), and driving there in summer when they had melted is very stupid and dangerous idea. In the autumn they freeze back and become even better than usual soil roads – look at 7th photo: this narrow spot, even when being repaired, allows driving up to 70 km/h (note the roadsigns).

To a.v.
Why is road build impossible?
For example there are many good roads in Norway on the ever-frost ground. As usual Russian functionaries have thieved the money were allotted for build.

Don’t compare Russia and Norway. Russian climate is quite different to Norway climate. Especially near Yakutsk, when it’s -50C for 6-7 months and +20C for 1 month. I hope you know that “world cold area” consists of Yakutsk as well…
