What a mess, is that every day's business? Well, that happens in a city of 14 million with only one proper grade-separated ringroad. You can make that street 30 lanes wide and it still wouldn't make a difference.

Are there any plans to upgrade all the Moscow rings into motorways?

Your Countries Intersections

I'm always interested in seeing nice intersections. I know the US has many big ones. The Netherlands also hase some nice and crazy intersections, here are a few. They are from the "Dutch Highways & Autosnelwegen Thread".

Nijmeegseplein, Arnhem;



Kleinpolderplein, Rotterdam;





Prins Clausplein, The Hague;



Ridderkerk-North/Ridderster, Rotterdam;



Vaanplein, Rotterdam;



There are many more intersections in The Netherlands, but I think these ones are very nice. Show some more of your country.

You guys forgot the Monumental Axis in Brasilia. Its the real largest avenue in the world : 250m. The ppl from Argentina, of course, call this an highway :P



Brasilia is a different city, so is its avenues.

Well the third and the fifth rings are motorways. In 2012 the fourth ring line will be complete. The garden ring (second ring road) is very huge and wide also. The Ring consists of 17 individually named streets and 15 squares. It has a circumference of 16 kilometers. At its narrowest point, Krymsky Bridge, the Ring has 6 lanes. Also its widest, Zubovskaya Square, it has 18 lanes.

Yonge Street is not the longest street in the world anymore. The title goes to Sepulveda Boulevard in LA.

As for the width of a street, how do you measure it? From sidewalk to sidewalk, from one extremity of the pavement to the other, from a building on one side to the other?

Nijmeegseplein, Arnhem;


Wouldn't it be better to have a roundabout here? Too many traffic light
s IMO.

i'd say we should stick to intersections here, because we have an interchange thread somewhere here

I assumed he meant interchanges because intersections pretty much look the same anywhere in the world and are nothing special.

Have you ever seen a freeway in the center of the city, with residential and comercial buildings around, with a plaza and metro/bus parades? If so, its surely not a freeway.
