Inner-city freeway plans

The philosophy after world war 2 was that people should circulate by car, and therefore massive networks of freeways should be built to ease congestion (led by Robert Moses). In many cities there were plans to rip up neighbourhoods and put in freeways via viaducts. However, the backlash meant that many such projects were cut.

Here's a map for Vancouver, proposed in the 1960s. The backlash was so loud that the chief city planner resigned on the spot, and the party that supported the plan got trounced in the elections.



red=planned but never built
blue=planned and built
green=subsequently planned and built

I can't find maps for Victoria, so I drew one up. It was proposed in the 60s, and the freeway would have been complete by 1990.



If you have maps of other failed projects, post them here.

Toronto had a massive system that was to be built

The first image is they had at the time and the second image is what was proposed, some of which was built

There's also that thread about dead and incomplete roads: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=450904

Most interesting there is the Paris plan.

-Red line is built and opened grade separated multi lane road.

-Solid blue line is built and opened multi lane road but has traffic lights (except for one really really old exit ramp and where it connects to the solid red line where it has a proper interchange) Next monday construction will start on the first project to replace traffic lights with interchanges and/or over bridges. This first one will remove the first 3 sets of traffic lights.

-Dotted blue line means it is not built to the full capacity originally planned without the original number of lanes. Top section in upper hutt isn't grade separated but the one in wellington is.

-Green line is planned but unlikely to ever be built. In the case of the green line near porirua this won't be built at all ever( actually it is an upgrade of the existing road to motorway standard there is already a 2 lane road there).

-Purple line is planned and will likely be built within the next 10 years or in the case of the one in between haywards and whitby this will be an upgrade of the existing road to four lanes with a median barrier from the current 2 lane undivided road. This won't be done until the motorway it connects to has been built.

This is the incredible plan for freeway and motorway for Paris in the 1970's
plan Pompidou for inner Paris



Double blue line : freeway. (6 at 8 lanes)
Dark blue line : avenue, boulevard without intersection or single way freeway for the Seine banks.
light blue line : avenue or boulevard with underground passage.
blue circle : interchange

Of these only the beltway was built

You map of Victoria is pure fiction, as you well know. No government ever had plans to build any highway even remotely resembling your imaginary project.

*The Don Valley Parkway/404 was completed as shown
*Spadina was only completed to Eglinton(the street Richview would've ran beside) in the south, and as depicted in the north, except as an arterial road
*Only tiny portions of the Richview/Crosstown Expressways are completed, which function as off/on ramps for Eglinton and Bloor from the 427 and DVP respectively
*Only a short stretch of the 400 was completed south of 401, however it continues as an arterial road(Black Creek Dr) to just about where it would've met up with Richview
*East Gardiner was never completed, the small stretch past the DVP was demolished in 2001
*427, 407 and 403/410 were completed as shown


The suburban highways were all completed; but the Toronto ones weren't, due to opposition from residents. As a result, the TTC(Toronto Transit Commission) is the third busiest system in North America(behind NYC and Mexico City), despite its comparatively small metro area and subway network. The commuter rail system(GO transit) also works very well and is about to undergo expansions.

Toronto would be a very different if these expressways were built.
