A Ten Lanes Road as a Showpiece?

6 Mar

A “flying” circular footbridge helps pedestrians cross this busy ten-lane intersection. Yes, this piece of civic project with an cool-looking UFO-shaped canopy deserves some credit. However why did they build a ten lanes road in the middle of the city anyways? This part of Shenzhen was supposingly completely re-planned and everything was new. Maybe this ten lanes road is a showpiece for the new Shenzhen, representing what a new city should look like.
