Russia superhighway: NYC to London by car a reality or pipedream?

1060 ratings | 462993 views
Driving from London to New York City would be possible if Russia succeeds in building a superhighway spanning across the country with links to western Europe and Asia. During a March meeting, head of the Russian Railways Vladimir Yakunin unveiled an ambitious plan called the Trans-Eurasian Belt Development, which entails constructing a superhighway and an accompanying high-speed railway. If the plan is realised, motorists will be able to drive from London to New York. Russia hopes the development will spur the economies of remote cities and towns. The Trans-Siberian Railway is about 9,000 kilometres long. According to CNN, a road trip from London to New York would cover about 20,777 kilometers. Yakunin said other infrastructure such as oil pipelines, power plants and water supply facilities will be built alongside the highway and high-speed railway. The mega highway system will face a multitude of difficulties, one of them being the connection to Alaska across the Bering Strait. Either a long bridge or a undersea tunnel would be needed. Money is likely to be another challenge. Russian Railways said the construction cost would amount to trillions of dollars. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

One truck per month will cross that bridge.

The bridge should be enclosed most of the way and they should have Little Diomede and Big Diomede as resting spots. The bridge should be enclosed all the way from Alaska up until Little Diomede where it opens up again and you can stop and rest there. Than it should just be an opened highway through Little Diomede, which than encloses again once you get back in the ocean and on the way to Big Diomede, than once you get to Big Diomede it should open up again and into an open highway through there, than it should enclose again after you’re at the end of Big Diomede and on your way to mainland Russia where it than opens up into a normal highway when you’re in mainland Russia

Which would you pick to cross the Bering strait, a bridge or a tunnel? I pick a tunnel.

The US might be OK with it. But it crosses a significant amount of Canadian territory and it does not appear to be of any use to that country. They already have the infrastructure they need to move commodities. And a big problem for all the rest of the countries is that the Russians have very smelly feet.

As a long distance motorcycle rider, I can't begin to describe how excited that possibility makes me. Going from Ushuaia, Chile in South America all the way to Nova Scotia, then turning west and continuing on until you can get good fish and chips in the UK would be a total dream for me. I would give quite a bit to be able to do that.

What about car insurance requirements? Most of Europe require far more in car insurance than you can buy from most US insurance companies.
Fierce Omega (11 months ago)
It's never going to happen people who want to travel from Europe, Russia, and China should fly. Building that highway will damage the arctic and could accelerate the rate of climate change and sea level rise.

No it won't not if you plant trees along the highway. This is the greatest thing to happen since Christopher Colombus decided to sail west to reach India :)

They actually don't have the worst drivers. They are just required to record all accidents. America has more accidents.

This is great it will take us past the muhammadans ;) Say it with me people fuck the mullahs :)
what about egypt ..we want also to connect to usa and russia

No fucking way the main reason for this project to avoid the muslim world comepletely. This way we'll be able to drive directly to Vietnam without having to go through shitholes like Qatar or the United Arab Emirates.
Glennandrews (1 year ago)
Love to see it but I think it's a pipe dream. It would be very difficult to build a bridge of the Bering Strait because of the depth and conditions. This is the Arctic. Alaska also has difficult terrain and is remote. What is even more remote is Russian Siberia. There is almost nothing there, and no cities of note.
navylaks2 (8 months ago)
Then we build new cities:) Problem solved the best thing about this project is that it's comepletely muslim free:)

Paul Davis (1 year ago)
Or you can just take a plane. Seriously, who would drive their car from New York to London or vice versa? Your choices are about 6 hours of flying, or a few weeks of driving. I can't see that many people choosing the driving option so this highway would be a huge waste of money.
Fuck tomo news they are terrible

That route is so long you'd need an oil change (or two) during the trip!

An all-year-round maintained road was built in 1954 to the city of Omsukchan, far east Siberia. It is not an Autobahn, but well built. It is only 1.600 km left to the border to Alaska without a road on the russian side. In Alaska, there is a distance of 1.000 km to the nearest main roadsystem from the russian border.

Brüno Baron Cohen (1 year ago)
We should put a money changer in every corner beside the highway because how the fuck will you spend your currency in toll gates? Also, why take a long long road trip instead of taking the plane? Watch your speed limits in each country that you'll pass through.
uhavemooface (1 year ago)
Hell no. No high way. Because its going from Nyc and it will cost too much money when they can put that money to better use.

This isn't jus connection the 2 continents it's providing infrastructure to siberia an area which has more than 30% procent of the entire worlds resources
