(2) The orange car in the inside lane, the front emblem looks very much like a Renault. Are you folks driving Renaults in Mexico? Are Renaults being sold in Mexico at this time?

First of all, what a great urban project. I hope I can go to visit MC someday.

Renaults are very popular in most Latin American countries. I don't know in Mexico, but in South America they are. As far as I know, there are two large assembly plants, one in Medellín, Colombia, and the other one in Argentina.

Here in Colombia, Renault has been the second better sold vehicle for many years, and with the new models, they have become just more popular.

With regards to Peugeot, some of them are imported from France, but some are being assembled in Argentina and Chile. French cars are great.

Of course Renaults are sold in Mexico!! and they're very popular, especially the model of the picture called "Clio" cause it's cheap. And the black car I'm not sure if it's a Chevy. I think it's a corsa or an astra, from chevrolet actually. The Chevy is smaller and doesn't have chromium at all.

And by the way, have you been in Mexico???? it's one of the countries with more Automobile-Firms in the world. Some examples are Chevrolet, Ford, Chrylser, Dodge, Nissan, Toyota, Mitsubishi, Susuki, Honda, Renault, Peugeot, Fiat, Volkswagen, Porsche, Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Land Rover, MG, Hummer, Cadillac, Volvo, Saab, Rover, Jaguar, Ferrari, Maseratti, Seat, Jeep, Accura, Infiniti, Lexus, Rolls-Royce, Bentley and much more.

But the most important thing. What do you think about the two-floored-freeway?????

Renault is also something popular in Brazil. They have a assembly plant in the State of Paraná. My mom has a clio, by the way.

This freeway would definitely be in the top five of the bussiest freeways. An action like this is the signal of desperation of a government that saw this highway always completely clogged. It is clogged sometimes even with the second level.

By the way, the mayor that order the construction of this "monument" lost the elections for Mexican President. He is from the left, and his name is Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO). Felipe Calderón from the right beated him with only .58% of difference.

FELIPE CALDERÓN!!!!! YES!!!!!!!!!! WE WON!!!!!!!!

Nice pictures. Is the top deck express/limited access, and the ground level the collector lanes?

The top level has less entrances/exits, partially to work as an express system, partially because it would be to costly to add more ramps.

Both levels are free

No, the highway has an average of 18 lanes, in some segments it has more (in the last picture, there are 24 lines). The top level is for long rides, there are a few exits and entrances. The 6 central lanes are for short rides, but both (central and top lanes) are only for particular cars, no public transport can drive through them, except for taxis. And the lateral lanes are for everyone: trucks, buses, cars, trailers and everything. The lateral lanes have trafficlights and are not a high-speed freeway.

The periferico keeps going up! I am worry that in an event of Earthquake! please remember Mexico City is in a highly seismic activity region. An earthquake could cripple the access to respond in a disaster situation. I know expropiation laws in Mexico are very strict compare to the U.S also the lack of Planing Mexico city is the most populous city in the world are reasons for the periferico still going up. I know Mexican engineers have taken into effect this risk but i am pretty sure the regulations are not as tough as in the U.S and look what happen in San Francisco and What happen in Kobe Japan.

I kinda understand the thinking behind adding the 2nd level. However I would have hoped the engineers and the transit authority there would have added a busway or hov lanes on the 2nd level. I didn't read if this was included or not. A dedicated busway can cut down on commute times in the same effect commuter rail can. Just as long there is good service at the other transit stations. I like it though it looks well planned.
