Russia Proposes Superhighway Linking New York And London
Considering the fact that many governments have different ideologies, the Russian Government has actually considered and proposed a giant roadway. It has been said to be 12,910-mile roadway which links New York City and London. This is so effective as it unites most of the countries essentially by land.
Russian Railways is responsible for proposing the roadway. Vladimir Yakunin is the head and claims that the roadway would incorporate some roads that are already built. However, the project will also consist of a large building that could cost approximately $3 trillion. Despite the cost, the popularity and the connection Yakunin has with Vladimir Putin could make it a reality. The roads have been said to be laid right beside the Trans-Siberian Railway which is noted as the longest railway in the world.
In regard to this, there would be a span of 55 miles which link the mainland of Russia and Alaska. Fortunately, there is approximately around 520 miles of wilderness between the Alaskan settlement to Russia-Nome-to Fairbanks which is essentially the nearest major city.
Besides this news, there have also been rumors about the construction and how there might be a high-speed rail system that may come along the side of the road.
There is also talk of the construction of a high-speed rail system along-side the road.
This is stupendous as usually travelers have to find themselves with means of transportation that revolve around flying in planes. To be quite frank, not everyone can afford a plane ticket and many people are afraid of heights which to many’s surprises won’t even ride a plane.
