No, but it's better. The second level is for high-speed transit and very long rides. The buses transit through the lateral lanes of the periferico, that go exactly to the right of the central lanes, separated to them. They have trafficlights, because the buses cannot drive in the freeway system of Mexico city's urban areas.

By the way, according to the engineers, the structure can suport an earthquake of 8.5 in the Richter scale (like Torre Mayor), and the standards of construction were even higher than U.S. or Japan, because the earthquakes in Mexico City are very strong when they occur, also the ground of the city often suffers liquefaction during a seism, known as the "Mexico City effect".

This is the distribution that predomiates through the freeway. In some cases there are tunnels in central lanes, or 9 lines in the second level. But the classic distribution of lanes in the freeway is like this. Central lanes and second level make the freeway and the lateral lanes have traffic lights.

Mexico city has one of the best subway systems in the americas.

9 car trains running at 90 second intervals, with tickets that cost US$0.20

I dont think HOV lanes exist in Mexico.

There is a BRT system running in another part of the city.

Building more highways is not the solution for the traffic problems of a city.

[MEX] Mexican Highways

Can anyone post pics of Mexican highways? I'm particularly interested in seeing highways near the U.S. border (weird request, I know).

Is it divided like that the entire way? If so its real nice and quite surprising to be honest. Thats a long distance. Is it free or is it a toll road?

Every main freeway in Mexico has such kind of divisions the whole long...



[/QUOTE]

Most of them are toll roads. And most of people uses toll roads since they are more extended and with a higher quality.

A free road looks like this...

Believe me,you will not have such opinion if you will have to commute in there. You can be there for a several time stuck in traffic.

[MEX] Mexican Highways / Autopista

First of all a map of mexican highways (it is pretty old and out dated. There are missing some highways.)



Mexico has until 2002 10140 km of 4 or more lanes highways.

I will show you some pictures of Mexican Highways.

México DF-Cuernavaca. It is 40 years old.



Cuernavaca-Acapulco.



Mexicali-Tijuana



Puebla-Orizaba







Tijuana-Ensenada



Puebla-Oaxaca



Maybe it is not a 4 lane highway but the scenery is very beautiful..



Near Cd de Mexico



Puente Chiapas



Puente Tampico



México-Toluca in Santa Fe.



México-Morelia
