It’s too long why not just build a high speed subterrtian network. Can go much faster then.

youd have to build gas stations and pit stops along the trans-continental roads over the ocean because i doubt a car can drive that long on a full tank

What if we harnessed the methane from human and cattle farts ?

Then the continental plates will break up the roads in the world. Not to mention, plates underneath the continents will cause earthquakes or even tsunamis. This road trip would become the deadliest road on Earth.

This would be awesome if it happened. Would be important for people in Eastern Russia, Africa and South America to get around.

Forget you to ride along Russia, and do not you spread inscription "europe" on Russia. You have buried yuoself confidence. You took your revenge to us because of our good will and the level of our confidence to you is lower than the level of shit in the toilet.

Also If we cant build bridges for Australia why not build ferries to shuttle people and cars to the countries that do have the highway And the same goes for that jump from South America to Africa

We'll see if they build a global highway during the 2020s and 2030s. I know people will build it sometime in the near future. We may have robots build it in the extreme temperatures.

you are wrong, the southernmost city is ushaia, argentina, not punta arenas
oldtwins na (2 days ago)
These won't ever get built because of lack of demand. Freight transportation is the only source that would use such things. But it's already dirt cheap to transport freight on container ships. Most of the cost of moving freight is actually the local connections, such as having the delivery truck pickup/dropoff the goods. None of that would change here.

Nobody I know would have the time and money to do all that traveling by road trip. I think the furthest anyone in my family has done is Las Vegas, Nevada to Niagara Falls, NY. Air travel would make more sense.
