The first Dallas beltway, I-635, is called the LBJ Freeway, after President Lyndon Baines Johnson.

Unfinished and abbandoned section of the Zagreb-Split motorway

Hi everyone!
Maybe somebody posted it before....
Croatia also has it's unfinished motorway section. It is situated north of Knin in the Dalmatian hinterland.
Projects in the 70's envisaged the Zagreb-Split motorway passing through Bihac and Knin (yellow line).
Construction started somewhere at the end of the 70's on a 9 km section marked with the red line. The whole project was soon aborted , never to be restarted again.

The motorway Zagreb-Split (A1, E65) was eventually completed in 2005 passing through a different area.
Those pics were taken from a motorcycle fan forum

I haven't taken the pics so I can't answer you. In the media they mentioned that construction had begun. I assume only rough earth removing works.
I'll try to find more info in old newspapers, one day. and hopefully get to that Licka kaldrma

The grade is visible in high-resolution on Google Earth. It looks like the route was partially graded, some bridge structures were begun (one looked like it was near completion) and a couple of tunnels were started (some of the portal structures are visible).

It is very interesting indeed to trace and how it and the Croatia/Bosnia and Herzegovina border intermingle.

This was always planned to continue with construction, so it doesn't fit in this thread, otherwise we'd have thousands of such cases here.

About that Croatian-Bosnian motorway: why did works start there? It looks like an odd location to start building the motorway IMO.

It is explained in the Croatian thread http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...postcount=3760

It was the most critical section between Zagreb Bihac and Split. IJudging form the landscape also the toughest as it follows the Una valley, parallel to the "Una railway". Take a look at the railway threads, beautiful pics

http://www.zeljeznice.net/forum/view...tart=45&t=1642


Had it been completed, pressure would have mounted to complete the remaining sections. You can easily reach Knin and Strmica from Split and on the other side from Licka Kaldrma relatively good roads lead towards other parts of Lika area , Bihac and Karlovac.
How strange is to see this isolated area.
Had the circumstances been different it would have been the main link...

There are at least two short sections of road in Sydney which are built to freeway standard but not official freeways, because they were sections of proposed freeways that were built early on before the decision was made not to finish building them. One is a 2x2 freeway with - I think - a speed limit of 70 km/h (though it becomes 4+3 after merging with Victoria Road), and the other is a 2x3 bridge connecting two secondary roads; I don't know what the speed limit is. Neither carries a volume of traffic suitable for the standard to which they were built. Here are a couple of images (not my pictures; I wish I could take some but I don't have a car since I was in an accident a couple of months ago):

Gladesville Bridge (4+3) - originally to be part of the North Western Freeway (F3):



Captain Cook Bridge (2x3) - originally to be part of the Southern Freeway (F6):

A few from England...

This is Switch Island to the north east of Liverpool.


Both the M58 & M57 have temporary finishes here and neither of them have any chance of being completed - Google Maps Link. For more information see here and here.

Down into London you find this short section of the never to be completed M41.



Google Maps Link and more information here.

Moving across to East London you'll find this barely completed junction complex at Hackney Wick.




Google Maps
Link & more information.

Moving up to the North Circular in the North East of the capital you will find this huge semi finished junction.


Originally it was supposed to be the junction between 3 motorways. In the end the M12 was never built and the A406 was not classified as a motorway. The large gaps and bridges were designed to allow the M11 to continue south towards central London. See here and the Google Maps link.


The three in London are connected with the former London Ringways plans. There are a few more bits of infrastructure on the ground for these that I will dig out and post. For a comprehensive background to all of this, see CBRD.
