Highway 85 is one of the longest straight roads in the world
Following the heart of Saudi Arabia, Highway 85 is one of the longest straight roads in the world. 693 miles (1.116 km) of straightness close to the border with Jordan.
This paved road links Jubail (in the Eastern province on the Persian Gulf coast of Saudi Arabia) and Turaif in Northern Borders Province. It’s a straight road running right through the desert for 9 h 15 min perfectly straight, but the corners are very long sweepers, when they do come about.
