Thanks once again! Friends - all - I appreciate your help but I'm confronted with the specific problem of rendering this into British and I have to have an idea of what the highway looks like, first hand!

along the bank of..


Explanation:
Usually shore is associated with the coast / sea, etc - here I think 'bank' is better as we are talking about a river. You would have to be quite descriptive in English and say something like the 'motorway running alongside/ parallel to the bank(s) of the Danube - a bit longwinded, I know but could you play around with that??

[Danube] riverside highway / freeway


Explanation:
_riverside_ is the term most often appliedd (in the US) to such "freeways", "highways", "roads", "streets" or "drives". The term can also be, and often is, capitalized if is actually the name and not just a descriptive term.
