Ring Roads of the World


1_1poster2.jpgRing Roads of the World

A nice info-graphic comparing metropolitan beltways .


The giant black thing in the background is supposed to be Houston? What the heck? Rice students should know by now that Highway 6 and FM 1960 don't make a loop. On the other hand, when Grand Parkway is completely built-out around Houston, it will make a loop bigger than all the others on this (discounting that black thing that isn't a loop).

Beijing has five ring roads, helpfully numbered as Ring Roads 2-6. (There is no #1). I assume that the outermost beltway (Ring Road #6) is what is pictured?

This graphic would be more useful if the cities were listed inner-to-outer, not alphabetically.
