The northernmost missing piece has been in limbo since the 1950s, but in 2009 and 2010 the government finally managed to get all environmental and other concerns taken care of, or perhaps to push it through in spite of those concerns.Here's a picture showing what it looked like in 1992.It has been ready for being turned into a proper expressway since the 1970s.[...] and e.g. Amsterdam or Utrecht didn't make the top 25.
And there are pipelines for BEER!
Ideally you'd end up with three types of streets,
True that even walking as a mode of transport needs infrastructure, though foremost that takes city planning. There are quite a few tricks to cycling paths as well, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, and Stockholm have done quite well, while Oslo has failed miserably.
Amsterdam has a good transport system, but they must have some of the slowest trams on the planet, going into the old town where the main tram terminus is.
The bipedes will anyway outrate any upgrades and improvements with their insatiable basic instincts to multiply indefinitely.
The population growth rate around these parts has been less than 1% since the 1970s and is projected to go negative within a decade or two for the simple reason that most of the population is older than me.
Russia has a birth rate of 1.5 children per woman -- lower than here.
The planet is gonna stay the same size, and you're not the only people on it. Others could get left with no other choice than come to you.
As interesting are the datasets used to generate this map. This is the road network, basically showing that we've got road traffic covered. A little more interesting is the rail network, rjhowie pay attention. Navigable rivers, the old-style superhighways.Shipping
There's a fair amount of blather early in this video, but original footage of the late 1920s project is interesting.
I've seen a few 20's videos. A lot of western infrastructure was made then (or earlier, but the films/videos mostly started that decade).

It was part of a much longer list. Very many (most?) German cities would be on the list of "quite well" as well.
The Statistical Man doesn't like bicycles.
Will also re-visit the Royal palace outside Apeldorn as it has a special connection for me!
The Statistical Man doesn't like bicycles. Bicycle paths are not deign of being considered "infrastructures".
