Show your own pipe dream motorway proposals...

Show your own pipe dream motorway proposals...

Using Google Maps, (or anything else you think is better)

Show motorway ideas you have, for anywhere in the world! I have a few for the UK

Some are based on real life proposals, but a few are my own ideas! (look on both pages, there are 2 pages)

You can view the entire road network with marked dual-carriageways on this site: http://latvijas-karte.zl.lv/ + click on Aerofoto in the upper right corner to view satelite images from 2007.

I did some for the Cape Town metropolitan area. Some elements of these have actually been planned and even partly built in the last 35 years or so.

I like your ideas Especially M67 from Manchester to Sheffield but this is really just a dream due to Nation Park in the middle.

I made a similar map some time ago which included exactly same looking northern beltway of Leeds !

The Italian A28 between Sacile and Conegliano is already operative. In this map I would add the link Vicenza - Trento, as well the direct link Trieste - Rijeka.

I would make the E66 and the A27 extension.

Here are mine for the Pyrenees area. Proposals that I don't list below are planned, U/C or even already operative, but Google Maps has not drawn they yet.


- E07, N-230/N125 and E09 are upgraded to motorway, thus creating three new crossings.
- The Andorran motorway, an extension of A-27 along C-14 up to the border, then going along the main Andorran road to E09.
- N116 gets upgraded to motorway (Or at least expressway) all the way to the Spanish border.
- The subpyrenaic motorway, an extension of A-26 to Barbastro (Multiplexing with A-14 for some time), and an extension of A-22 from Huesca to Tudela.

And I would make a motorway all the way from Europe to Beijing.

I have also lots of I-states across the US on my pipe dream, including I-580 Truck... which is a redesignation of the well known I-238.

I'd be glad if they built half this by 2030. This is the actual official Romania motorway and expressway plan:
