And?

Monumental Axis is still a big avenue. But 9 de Julio is the widest convetional avenue. Nothing in Brasilia seems convetional.

That's not an intersection! BTW, here is mine. Not the best Zagreb can offer, but it does look neat and there is also a tram intersection to the east.

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?

Sepulveda is not a very wide street, usually 6 lanes.

For instance here next to the 405:

This pic is taken on Sepulveda Pass. Everything within a 20 mile radius of here is urbanized. It's the road on the left, next to the more visible I-405 freeway.
