I mean, the world's biggest cities don't have roads this wide. Because, well, it doesn't work.
How do you know if it doesnít work if it doesnít exist?

Well, it's more about it not needing to work. Most Tokyo Metro lines move far more people than the "infamous" 401 freeway, whilst occupying significantly less space.

Egypt is also building HSR. Thatís besides the point.

But only if Texas could continue to build and expand its highways to resolve congestion, it will surely work!

Nope, it is the point. The point is movement of people. Cars move people. Trains move people. Bikes move people.

Also, I'm referring to metro, aka "subway", lines. Not HSR. No idea where you got that from...

El Gaish Road in Alexandria.





The 135 kilometer highway to El Alamein is also being expanded to 16 lanes.

When I first read this thread, I was convinced this was some bananage dreamed up by the pour-stuff-on-stuff guy.
