Fed sher is known for his road geek videos in the Buenos Aires area. One of his videos also includes freeways/tollways in Buenos Aires.


It's like you knew I'm here. Craziest thing I've noticed so far is how prominent the lateral stripes are approaching a toll plaza and then the presence of actual speed bumps. On a freeway.

Other notes: Av 9 de Julio is the world's widest street. You feel like you're looking across a river at the other side. Found a quadruple left turn:
Old street signs abound - porcelain - mainly for street names and tiny one-way arrows. And there's a neat reversible lane system on what's normally a 10-lane one way road - do you know of any wider one laners?

Another note: The first several hundred km of RN14 are a superstreet, in essence. For all Argentina reminds me of Texas, this is something different and better. By removing all cross streets in favor of U-turns, there are many fewer opportunities for traffic conflicts while inconveniencing only a few locals.

President Macri announced plans to reconstruct major highways in Argentina as a PPP project. It includes a number of corridors to be upgraded to autopista, semi-autopista or other improvements. This is in line with much of South America, a large proportion of road upgrades are funded through tolls. The entire program includes over 7500 kilometers of roads to be upgraded.
