  • Looking for a highway where we can create a traffic jam (60 cars), so we can shoot several scenes in different cars. Shooting will take place in 3rd week March. Good weather is a must! Please mail me if you have any good suggestions.

    Kind regards,

    Hi Gideon,

    Are you open for Asia? We can provide brand new high way for a shoot as it’s not yet opened for public. Any specific cars you wanted? just to see whether we have those in the market. Let me know.

    Also any specific look you looking at for high ways? like buildings in the background, overhead bridge … etc. ???

    Good morning Mr. Gideon Rijnders,

    We were looking for exactly the same lacation last week and found a section in Portugal in which to shoot.

    This is a finished highway still closed to the public.
    Tell me if you are interested in the area of Portugal and I will send pictures ect.

    Kind regards.

    Here in the UK we have a vehicle proving ground, where they have different roads and surfaces. We have filmed a motorway crash there in the past for a TV Car Programme as they have a three lane motorway set up.

    Hi Gideon,
    here in the Czech republic (close to Prague) are several highways which are mostly finished just before giving the operation.
    Let me know if you are interested in shoot in our country and then I can send you location suggestions immediately.
    Kind regards,

    Hey Gideon,
    open to shoot in Germany or weather not good enough? we closed roads and highways in the past, would need a little more information if you can imagine doing it in Berlin or Cologne area.

    Best regards from Berlijn


    Dear Gideon,

    There is a highway in the south of Spain which is finished but still not open to public. We applied for permits about a month ago for another shoot and there was no problem. The stretch of highway is about a kilometer long, with several bridges and exits etc.

    Please contact us for more details, as we would be more than happy to service your shoot.

    All the best

    Hi Gideon,

    Are you open to the idea of shooting in Malaysia. We have few stretches on the highway where we can close the roads. Its very cost effective to shoot in Malaysia. The crew and equipment are all very professional. Please email me at if you have any queries. Thank you

    Hi Gideon

    Just outside Bristol (2 hours drive west from London, allow 3.5 hours from the Channel Tunnel) is the ‘Road To Nowhere’, a dual carriageway where we frequently film for TV. It was completed about 30 years ago except money ran out for a bridge over the railway. It is mostly surrounded by green fields, but with suburban houses where it comes off a roundabout.

    It is owned by the Council and is on the South West Screen database (sw-gl-0026): I have used it and can organise everything for you. Bristol is one of the three main production centres in England outside London so we have all the production and technical crew, equipment hire, lighting hire and hotel accomodation that you could need.

    Hi Gideon

    This is a pdf of the Road To Nowhere, outside Bristol, from South Gloucestershire Council’s website. Rob Champion +44 7939 042361

    Just returned from Dubai where we shot something very similar with 45 cars etc.- plus no taxes.

    Production company in Dubai was Dolcevita Films / Filmmastermea.

    Hi, Gideon

    You can shoot a car crash in Georgia. Here are some highways.
    For more pics please view


    Hi Gideon,
    In the south of Spain we have a coastal highway that spans from Almuñecar to Málaga. Along the same route there is a new freeway. Because of this, few people still use the coastal highway. It is a beautiful location, perfect for filming, and would be an easy place to divert whatever traffic there might be. We have very good weather during March, as well. I don´t have good pictures for you right now, but if you are interested I can send them to you.

    Best regards,

    We have some beautiful Highways in India. In January 2011 we just did a shoot ( 3 days ) for HONDA ACCORD. Attached are a few pictures where you can create that sort of a jam with permissions from the National Highway Authority of India ( NHAI )
    Please do let us know if you are keen to shoot here
