tipical misbelief of laymen that the jams on multilane town roads means the town is full, there is no place for more cars.

in fact building grade separated main roads in towns means 2 or 3 times more capacity on the same area...

Yeah that'd be great for the city's vibrancy to have an elevated highway through the middle of the city.

You think an elevated highway is the only solution for a grade separated road? Well, think again.

They could've made it below grade, and make an urban park of the available lands, or even a cut & cover tunnel.

Does anybody have pics of avenue foch in paris? I think in Germany, the straße des 17. juni and its extension to the west (Ernst reuter platz) might be the widest. Unfortunately, I don't have pictures taken by me.

I always learnt Yonge Street is the longest street in the world. From downtown Toronto it goes 56 km without changing name or type.
