Park On Motorways
Close the motorways to moving traffic and use them as car parks instead
Motorways are sometimes referred to as car parks.
However, the situation is generally that the vehicles on
them do move occasionally, and this is the flaw with using
them as such. They also have useful features such as
entry and exit ramps and are a good way of keeping traffic
off A roads
and smaller thoroughfares.
So, do this. Erect fences across the motorways half way
between the junctions, repaint them with parking spaces
and allow vehicles to move in and out of them just to park.
Then, erect monorails along the routes and use them as
park and rides to the appropriate destination. The cars
stay off the roads, people get places more quickly and it's
all very very good.
Oh, and deliver freight by airship of course.
||Freight by airship [+] but it might be missing a trick
not to flood and re-purpose the motorways as modern-day
towpaths, along which barges could mosey, dragging along
their airship-tethered cargoes.
