Not clear from a casual glance if there's a median in the middle of the
quadruple lines, but it does look like a super-two.  I'd call it a motorway
and two ways if there's no at-grade intersections except for links plus a
barrier down the center, trunk and two ways if there's at grade
intersections or a single way if it's undivided with limited access (apply
turn restrictions liberally as routing engines will try to make you U-turn
to take the oncoming exit ramp if you miss your exit otherwise, or make an
illegal U-turn if you accidentally turn the wrong direction in this
situation without them).
