Periferico's Second Layer Underconstruction

Hey folks!!!!!

I saw this video on the Discovery Channel, on a program dedicated to the development of the second layer of Mexico City's main freeway. As you can see it's very very long, and as you can see the video doesn't even show the whole extension.

Has there ever been a push to add shoulders/breakdown lanes on Mexican highways, like there are in Europe, Canada, the USA, etc?

BTW, impressive work anyways (remember that the Mexico City metro area has fully 25% of Mexico's entire population!).

I never seen so many workers on a highway like that. How much does this cost?

Is this highway being built to withstand Earthquakes?

Perhaps you could read the thread, before posting such a question.

Yeah, for sure. The government has the obligation to do so. The engineers say it can withstand an earthquake of maximum 8.5. The 1985 earthquake was 8.1. So it's pretty secure.

That is good news. It is an amazing highway. Mexico City is such a huge city and does things on a massive scale. Thanks Alejandro.

Very nifty! They are going to do the same in Stockholm most likely, on Klarabergsviadukten; it's not a motorway but rather a road connecting the center to the main motorway E4. On one side you have the rail tracks, on the other water, so it's hard to expand. The rail tracks are kind of high to side so thankfully this won't affect the scenery or anything much.

It is supposed that the state of Mexico part (which hasn't begun yet) will be of thirty something kilometers while the Federal District part is of 9 kilometers, so it may be massive!!!

There is another proyect of making a second floor in the Federal District in the Viaducto that is like the interior Periferic connecing the second floor of Periferico to it and going up to the airport

It could have a better design. Why don't they put some paint on it at least? I think it looks very ugly but its construction was necessary.

I still want to drive on it someday when I visit Mexico City

That last viaduct seems like quite a wind-catcher...
