Urban Highways in your City

By "Highway", I do not mean "motorway" or "freeway", because that's not what it means, but it can be a motorway.

I mean any large main road, that in this case is important for your City.

Figueira da Foz



This is a map of 2x2's in Figueira da Foz.
All of them have a speed limit of 50km/h, except 109 and 14.

109:

Perhaps a good example is Coventry's inner ring road, which does a brilliant job of keeping traffic out of the city centre even if it dominates the skyline a little in some places. And to think the council were wanting to demolish part of it!!

I would find some images of it but CBRD has an entire feature including photos and some videos dedicated to it!

If there were thoughts of demolishing Coventry Ring Road, another council nearby did so in the mid-1990's. I refer to the eastern part of Birmingham Inner Ring Road which was transformed into a series of urban boulevards plus a section only for for buses.

Sofia, Bulgaria - Tsarigradsko Shosse (left - right):



This is the main thoroughfare of Sofia in the southeastern part of the city and main route to Plovdiv and Istanbul. On the picture you can see the junction of Tsarigradsko Shosse, Peyo Yavorov Blvd. (bottom-right part) and Mihai Eminescu Blvd. (top-left part).
