The road of bones to magadan is almost unnavigable. Much of the road floods and it is very difficult to complete. Only trucks take this route

Better if we build affordable personal flying cars and there flying paths? investing some billion dollars for research that's it. Cars like tesla so we don't need gas and if possible car charge auto with the sun it's charge easily because of there hight.

6:57 - the graphic makes it look so simple to get from Cape Town to Punta Arenas - but it's not possible to do without making 3 stops and going way out of your way to finally get there.

It will cost way more than that, what about labor, border staff and buildings, plumbing ,electrical to support borders and gas stations and emergency rescue system,

Actually It's possible to connect Indonesia with the Eurasian Highway system. There are already plans to connect Bali, Java, Sumatra to Eurasia, either via Johor, or via Singapore. The thing is our current government just doesn't feel like into building the connections.

Anybody living in Southeast Alaska or Washington State is used to ferries as part of the road system. And running a ferry system is a lot cheaper than building and maintaining bridges, especially in the kinds of places the video says we need to build them in. That would also be how you include Australia in the World road system.
