The Diagonal is quite some boulevard! I think its length defines it as much as its width though, considering it seems to run across most of Barcelona.

This avenue in Sana'a, Yemen is among the widest in the world:





Google Maps overview

I think it has a dual use as a military parade route, though.

Wow, this one is really wide.
Do you know how many lanes it has?

It seems to be more a huge asphalt area than really a roadway:

Military parades I guess. Officials can watch from that stage.

Well this is not about number of lanes, but about the width.

Champs Elysées has a width of 60 meters and 70 meter.
Paseo de la Castellana has a width of 80 meters and 90 meters.

I really like the huge pedestrian sidewalks. It must be so easy to pass all the slow walkers out there (like 99% of the people)

Paseo de la Castellana in its widest parts is 120-130m wide but it's true that probably the most common width throughout the avenue is 90-100m
